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.

Rumor: Halo Movie to be developed in 2012 and Steven Spielberg has something to do with it

A film adaptation is set in 2012. It will be conducted jointly by two heavyweights of American cinema: Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks.

Source.

Yeah. Sure. As a producer: it’s possible because “the Beard” has a lot of upcoming directorial projects on the horizon (the Lincoln biopic and the very-interesting Roboapocalypse). Still, this sounds pretty BS to me.

What do you guys think?

The Lost Level: Episode Three

Turn-based hater and awesome friend of the show, Adam, officially joins the mighty duo of G & Chris in this week’s episode of The Lost Level! Tune in as the trio discuss what they all thought about Super 8, Shadows of the Damned’s lackluster hype and HBO’s Game of Thrones. Season 1 just ended 2 days ago, and G tries to convince the other 2 why GoT is an AMAZING show and how he appreciated it from a gamer’s perspective.

Plus– thoughts on Batman: Arkham City’s Robin, Grand Theft Auto V being semi-officially confirmed for next year, the ridiculously titled Evangelion rhythm game, Halo CE remake’s Kinect whatnot, the true story behind Megan Fox and Transformers 3, the epic trailer of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Russell Crowe as Jor El, AND more!
