Pyro’s Arcade Episode 31: Viva Los Manchuria
*Podcast Editor’s Note*
Due to FTP and shoddy hotel WiFi issues, this episode is posting a week late. We’ll be back to our regular schedule next week. Also, apologies to Raphael Phillips of 8bit Cubist for screwing up his name.
In this episode, Robbie finally ends his Brokeback affair with WoW and queries the guys for suggestions to tide him over until D3 and Hitman finally arrive. Conor fills us in on his two week gaming bender with titles like Shadows of the Damned, Shadow Complex, Dungeon Defenders, All Orcs Must Die, Golden Axe: Beast Rider (shudder), Hero Academy (win!), and the OG Assassin’s Creed. We wax a little on the shifts in narrative goals between the various iterations of AC as Steven rages about Revelations awkward deus ex ending and delights in sharing the joys of Warhammer: Space Marine. Steven also says “stab the fucker” at least 3 times.
