Super Joystiq Podcast Special: X3F Reunion & Xbox One

Get a cup of hot chocolate, grab a blanket, and curl up next to a window, because a nostalgia storm is headed your way.

The Xbox 360 Fancast is back for a one-time encore performance to celebrate the launch of the Xbox One. Richard, Xav, Alexander, Dave, and one Dustin Burg spend two hours covering the in and outs of the Xbox One hardware, software, games, and services. Get ready for impressions on the box, controller, operating system, Forza 5, NBA 2K14, Killer Instinct, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome, and more!

The Xbox One talk doesn't stop here though. Tune-in again tomorrow for a regular Super Joystiq Podcast episode with Ludwig discussing his full Xbox One review, and more thoughts in the launch lineup and details unavailable at the time of this special's recording, like the lack of Twitch streaming at launch.

Listen to the Super Joystiq Podcast: Podcast timestamps and relevant links are available after the break.
