News: Video Game Releases

This is where we put out some info about the games we think are going to be somewhere between decent and awesome that release today or later this week.  Typically we skip over the heavy hitters.  Sorry Call of Duty, but 8 million people usually already know about your release date.

Persona 4 Arena – 360/PS3

Buy on Amazon

Developed by Arc System Works (BlazBlue, Guilty Gear) and published by Atlus (Persona, Shin Megami Tensei).  This is the anime style 2D fighter based on everyone’s (if you aren’t everyone then yes this is a threat) favorite school going, demon hunting JRPG series Persona.  Featuring characters from Persona 3 and 4, the story mode is allegedly 40 h0urs long (so probably 5-7 hours per character if you win the first time).  The game looks pretty slick and allegedly doesn’t have any moves harder than a half circle.  Color me excited.

Turn 58 – 20% Cooler

Direct Download

Featuring John “MusiM”, Joey, Scott “Artisan002”, Lauren, and Suzy “Specter”

Music by MusiM.  Buy the new album at musim.bandcamp.com

We begin with film this turn discussing Cowboys and Aliens, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Battleship.

Continuing on with videogames we hit on Persona 3 PSP, Catherine, and Bastion.

And finally we end with literature and discuss Dresden and also answer a listener email!


Currently the last 15 minutes of the turn got cut off due to a software glitch with our FTP client.  The problem will be fixed in approximately 9 hours (ie when MusiM gets home from work to upload the file again).   Until then there are a lot of other turns to check out.  Maybe some horror, spoilercasts, or rpg casts.


The turn is now fixed!  Enjoy!
