Super Joystiq Podcast 001: Black Ops 2, Elder Scrolls Online, The Walking Dead

Xav de Matos, @Xav

Welcome to our new show, the Super Joystiq Podcast! We've shed our previous format and have gone back to what fans of the original Joystiq Podcast said they loved: WRUP, news, and best of all, conversations about the industry's biggest topics from the entire Joystiq editorial team.

This week, Xav and Ludwig discuss Black Ops 2 and Dishonored; JC leaves a very angry voice mail; Jess, Jordan, and Richard have a spoiler-filled discussion about The Walking Dead in the first installment of the Joystiq Research Institute; Mike talks about using the 3DS to explore the Louvre; and Alex, Dave, and Ben discuss the latest industry news, including The Elder Scrolls Online.

We also have five XBLA codes for Awesomenauts to give away. Listen to the end of the show to find out how you can win!

Social MediaAbout the Joystiq Research Institute
Each week, a mix of editors from Joystiq will be tasked with playing one game, which they will discuss on the next episode of the podcast. This week, the crew played Telltale's The Walking Dead: Episode One. As an added bonus, we've also injected clips of each editor playing the game so you can hear their reaction as it happens. Be warned, this segment does include spoilers!
