Erich, Tim, and Adam take the podcast to strange new places this week, covering exotic topics like personal computers, friend codes, and whether modern video games are too complicated to attract new players. In the newly named (thanks to Tim) “Now Playing” segment, the boys talk World of Warcraft
addiction, Resident Evil 5
woes, Mario Kart
, Picross DS
, and Tiger Woods 10
. In News, Tim looks forward to Brutal Legend
; Adam’s joy about potential PS2 backwards compatibility on the PS3 is dampened by a cynical take on Sony’s business model; and Erich fires back at the Wii “Demo Play” whiners. Dave may not be on the podcast this week, but he’s here in spirit thanks to his most bizarre Symposium Ad Nauseum topic yet: “Video game character you would least like to be trapped with in the boiler room of Bayside High during the senior prom.” Yikes!
