PSTS Episode 40 – Halo Workout, Tropes vs. Women, and the Deepening SimCity Mire

It’s been a full week since SimCity 2013 has come out, and that means a lot of drama and interesting news from that front for us to reveal to you, along with all of the lovely drama that comes with the release of the first Tropes vs. Women episode. We also have Jeff and JD’s opinions on the surprisingly intense Halo Workout, annoyances at how freaking hard the original Kid Icarus is, and some healthy love for Joe Pesci.

    Thanks for giving a great explanation of the technical side of the SimCity server issue without dumbing it down. Hopefully it’s not a sign (though it probably is) of bigger things to come in the gaming universe.

      Yeah I hope the industry stays away from always online being a requirement. If they made it an option it wouldn’t be as bad. I have a feeling that EA is going to continue to make annoying business decisions like this though. Thanks for listening to the podcast!
