We received an email from James drawing our attention to a blog post over at Kotaku discussing ‘sexism’ in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It’s something that has a lot of debate around it and we discuss our thoughts on the topic.
Bargain Buys/Iphone Games
Steam is having a year end sale until January 3rd with games up to 75% off. In addition there are daily deals happening so check back often!
Kim is a huge Sherlock Holmes fan and decided to try out the new iPhone game for 99 cents and loved it!
One of our listeners, Larissa, recommends a free game called League of Legends; it’s a new game based on the Warcraft mod Defense of the Ancients (DoTA). Thanks for the recommendation Larissa!
Tis the season for Winter Veil, the Merrymaker title and tons of presents on Christmas Day!

Great show as always girls. A shame Stephanie couldn’t join you, though.
Oh, and I’m vain enough to imagine you ment me when you spoke about “that guy from the nordic states”. Or Norge (Norway) as we call it here. ;)
Just wanted to ass a little piece of information about the Ace Attorney games: They are quite fun, but they are also extremely linear. Thus, if there’s a piece of the puzzle that you can’t figure out you WILL be stuck. A bit annoying as you can’t occupy yourself with a different puzzle and get back to the annoying one later, but HAVE to complete it to progress.
There’s very few places I got stuck at, and I usually figured it out a day or two later.
I’ve only had to look up the answer online at a single puzzle in the second game, and it turned out to be something mindblowing obvious. *faceslap*
Oh, and happy new year to you all!
May 2010 be an improvement on 2009 in every way. ^_^
Correction: The latest raving rabbids is not a mini-game collection.
I’ll have to check the game out. I had only seen it in a commercial briefly over the holiday. Have you played the game?
