Super Joystiq Podcast 007: Steel Battalion, SpyParty, Diablo 3 patches, Microsoft's Surface


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast gets tense.

In the first segment, Xav, JC, Richard, and Mike Schramm discuss Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor and the Metal Gear HD Collection for Vita. They also get into some deep discussion about the recent changes to Diablo 3.

The Joystiq Research Institute returns with Jess, Ben, and Xav playing through SpyParty. The crew even streamed the game on our new Twitch.TV account. (Watch the session after the break, and please forgive the technical issues!) To wrap up another full episode, Alex, Ludwig and Mike Suszek examine the latest industry news.

We're also continuing our giveaway from last week. Listen to the show for your chance to win one of three Awesomenauts soundtracks on vinyl.
