You don’t need to tell me how awesome that news is, because I already know. The only sad thing about it is that Christina couldn’t be with us again. Thankfully, we were able to make up for it with a lively discussion of The Walking Dead: Episode 3. Ironic. Chris and Adam then talk about the latest “Leviathan” DLC for Mass Effect 3, and then Adam gives us his impressions of Binary Domain. Finally, we delve into this week’s video game and movie news.

A Lot of Metal Gear Solid News

There was a party for the 25th anniversary of  Metal Gear the other night, and a lot of interesting news came from it. No, it’s not that Hideo Kojima got drunk and started a fight with a coat rack, though that would be awesome. First off, Metal Gear Solid, the game that is always mocked as already being a movie, is going to be made into an actual movie. The film was announced by X-Men and Spider-Man producer Avi Arad and is being made by Columbia Pictures. It is unclear at this moment how much influence Hideo Kojima will have in its development.

Lost Level: Lost Episode One

We’ve dug into the archives and found an episode that didn’t quite make the cut. Old Man Chris couldn’t be around for this episode, the the kids get to have some fun without the adult around. In this episode Adam and Christina talk about their experience with PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale,  Christina is back with a new Pocket Gamer segement in which she discusses Sound Shapes, and from there we have our usual video game and movie news. Let the hijinks ensue!

UPDATE: Since this recording took place S.H.I.E.L.D. was picked up by ABC, not AMC as discussed on the episode.

Psychonauts coming to PSN!

I don’t really have much to say except that Psychonauts will be available on the PlayStation Network next Tuesday which made me jump for joy! Now if only they would re-release the game with trophies and achievements! One can only hope!

Black Isle Studios Re-Opens

Black Isle Studios, known best for developing the original Fallout games and Planescape: Torment, closed its doors in 2003. Now, nine years later, it seems they have decided to take another swing at the game-making business. This was discovered after a new website of theirs popped up with links to  Facebook and Twitter accounts. While official details are still unclear, it appears that Herve Caen, Interplay’s CEO, is the person responsible for this reemergence.

However, the thing I’m more interested in is whether or not they will be able to catch up with the industry. Gaming has come a long way in a decade, and trends have changed.  Do you think Black Isle can become relevant again, or will they end up offering games with a more “old school” feel while piggybacking off of their previous successes?

The Lost Level: Episode Forty Two

After few weeks’ break we are back with some all new ear candy. That’s right! Episode forty-two of The Lost Level is availble for you to enjoy. Christina couldn’t join us for this episode, so the men get to have some fun without the woman around.  Alex is back with a brand new Backlogged  segment where he discusses The Witcher 2. Beyond that, we have our video game and movie news that you have come to expect and love. So pour yourself a nice brandy, light up a fine cigar, and enjoy our gentlemanly discussion for this week

UPDATE: Since the recording of the episode, we have discovered that OnLive was purchased by Lauder Partners, LLC

Say Goodbye to Nintendo…

Power!  Nintendo still exists but there magazine after 24 years of publication will cease to exist. Sales have decreased the last few years which is sad to hear if you have purchased a gaming magazines ever in your life time. I have read that the editors and staffers will be transitioned to work for other Future properties. The last issue is said to be memorable so I would figure out when and where you can get your hands on one as I am sure it will become a collectors item at some point. If I can find a stack you better believe I will be purchasing all of them.

North America Getting the Hyrule Historia

The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia was a compendium that was originally released in Japan last December. Now, according to a listing by Diamond Book Distributors, it appears as though North America will be receiving their own version of the guide to the Hyrulian universe thanks to Dark Horse Books. The book, slated to be released on January 29th for $35, includes a timeline that maps out the series’ storyline, concept art, and other materials. Sadly, January is just a little late to make an awesome holiday gift.
