The Lost Level: Episode Fifty-One

Hey there, Lost Levelers. It’s you’re favorite time again. No, not Hammer Time. It’s a new episode of The Lost Level. This week we have Alex talking about Silent Hill: Downpour in the latest  “Backlogged” segment. We also get into the latest talk about the next generation of consoles that will be sneaking their way onto store shelves. Also, Adam lets his imagination run free with the known details for the X-Men: Days of Future Past movie. We have news. We have laughs. Please, join us.

Lost Level: Episode Fifty

Guys! It’s episode fifty! We made it! So bust out the champagne while listening to this very special episode where we talk exclusively about games. There’s a lot of video games coming out around this season, and its hard to cover them all. However, we’re doing our very best to give you, our loyal listeners, our thoughts on some of the hottest titles that are coming out. So what games are we going to discuss this time? Let’s go down the list. We have Halo 4, the latest game in the popular franchise helmed by a new studio: 343 Industries. We also get into the new DMC demo, which is also a popular series being handled by a new developer. This time it’s Ninja Theory pulling the reins. Next is Assassin’s Creed 3. Then Chris plays Persona 4 Golden, a handheld J-RPG, and actually likes it. No, really. It’s weird. Finally, we fellate The Walking Dead by Telltale Games a little bit more as we give out final thoughts on the first season.

The Lost Level: Episode Forty-Eight

Hello listeners,

These weeks away from you has been a trying time. We counted the hours as they passed. Every day that we couldn’t contact you was a day of darkness. Thankfully, a light of hope and joy has broken through the blackness that was our absence, and we come bearing a new episode to help you get through the restless nights. Adam and Chris talk about their lovely vacation to Silent Hill: Revelation 3D. Also, Alex reveals a dark secret that nearly traumatizes Adam. Other than that, we have our usual discussion about the latest news in games and movies. I hope this letter finds you well, and hopefully not too many night pass until we can meet again.

With Great Love,

The Lost Level.

Microsoft E3 Conference Feels Like Déjà Vu

If I were to tell you what Microsoft showed during their E3 press conference for 2012, you’d swear I was confusing it with a previous year. Hell, I’d even question myself. What we were given was new installments for popular franchises like Halo, Gears of War, Fable, Madden, FIFA, Forza, Splinter Cell, Tomb RaiderResident Evil, Dance Central, and Call of Duty. These are all games we expect to see at this point. Thankfully, they did show us a few new IPs. However, they were hardly anything to get excited over, except for maybe the South Park game. There was LocoCycle (which was strictly a teaser), Ascend: New Gods, and Matter (which was also a teaser). They also showed off Wreckateer, which is essentially Angry Birds with the Kinect.

“Wait, you mean to tell me they’re still trying to cram the Kinect down our throat?” Yes, that’s exactly what I’m telling you. We get it, Microsoft. You can talk to your Xbox 360 and tell it to do things. I can also just as easily do the same thing by pressing a button on a controller that I already own. I don’t need to shout at my Netflix to play an episode of  Archer, nor do I want to. Of course, they also tried to showcase the Kinect and how it can be integrated in upcoming popular games, but again: buttons.
