53. Game, I Am Disappoint

This week we are joined by Chin from Respawn Entertainment (you may have heard of them) and he talks to us about Titanfall and Dota 2; Joel completes his first Legend of Zelda game: A Link Between Worlds and introduces the very forgiving Yoshi’s New Island; Lisa gets started on Autumn Dynasty Warlords (made in Singapore, baby!); and Vick beats down people and slugs in Only One.

In other news, we discuss games that disappointed us and try to figure out where they failed to meet our expectations. You know who you are. That’s right, we’re looking at you, Simcity (2013), Metal Gear Solid 2 & 4Mirror’s Edge, Alphabets, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Fable: The Journey and others. Got a game that disappointed you? Tell us what and why by dropping us an email or a tweet.
