Normal people associate the holidays with tacky decorations, dinners with annoying family, and an endless barrage of irritating toy commercials. Gamers, however, know that those last few months of the year really bring in a bounty of major game releases. That’s why this week’s edition of our Bring Your Own Topic podcast focuses on the holiday season of gaming, including a new system that you may have heard of.
This episode, GamesBeat editor-in-chief Dan “Shoe” Hsu sits down with our own Sebastian Haley, Rus McLaughlin, and 1up’s Jose Otero to talk about the biggest releases of the holiday season, including the Wii U, Assassin’s Creed III, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and Halo 4. Also, despite our best intentions, we do delve into a few minor spoilers. That was the warning. We just spoiler-warned you. No complaining now!
This episode’s topics:
- Our favorite holiday games so far
- Why or why not we’re getting a Wii U
- What makes a triple-A game
- Disappointing game endings
