Platforms Episode 24 – In Russia Game Plays You

Josh Philpott and Dave Kozicki (with David ‘Beardy’ McVay)

Platforms is a gamers podcast by gamers. The podcast is recorded live on Ustream with chat interaction so come and join the fun as your host candidly discuss the latest in the gaming world. The podcast is uncensored, explicit, honest and very non ‘PC’. We kick off this week with the trailer for ‘Metro 2033’, this week’s feature review. We are all feeling good this week with the news of Michael Atkinson’s resignation.

News This Week: Michael Atkinson resigns as South Australian Attorney-General and moves to the back bench. Is USB storage coming to Xbox? Sony declares that Project Natal is 8 year old tech. We watch the new ‘Red Dead Redemption’ trailer. New DLC for ‘Mass Effect 2’. ‘Battlefield: Bad Company 2’ kicks ass and we have stats. ‘Monster Hunter 3 Portable’ coming soon. Dave has a preview of ‘Split Second’ for us.

Coming Soon Titles: ‘Pokemon Heart Gold / Soul Silver’, ‘Red Steel 2’, ‘Blazblue: Calamity Trigger’ and ‘Resonance of Fate’.

Review of the Week: This week, Dave gives us a mini review of ‘Final Fantasy XIII’ and the verdict – meh. Actually you should listen for details. Then Josh and Dave give a detailed and in depth review of ‘Metro 2033’. A flawed but fun game and very ‘Half-Life 2’ in feeling, not quality.
