This week’s episode comes on the tail of some major Star Wars announcements out of Anaheim, for both movie and videogame audiences. Tim reports on some behind-the-scenes conversations from the private press event for Star Wars Battlefront, and Karol waxes nostalgic on the questionable legacy of licensed Star Wars games. We get deep into some details on the recently revealed Guitar Hero Live and its comparisons to the upcoming Rock Band 4. Karol and Tim share some thoughts on the violence in last week’s release of Mortal Kombat X, as well as the normal cross-section of new game expansions and some backlogs.
