Super Joystiq Podcast 009: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, Spelunky, Gaikai


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast goes off on a few hilarious tangents.

It's a two segment show this week. In the first segment, Xav, Ludwig, JC, and Richard discuss the oddity that is Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, the soul crushing Spelunky, the hilarity of Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3, and the maybe not so Amazing Spider-Man. But only after the guys talk about Metroid Prime and Brute Force.

Ben helms news this week alongside two Mikes (Schramm and Suszek) and a Jess. Sony kicks things off in a big way by acquiring streaming games company Gaikai. Also on tap: $99 future consoles (maybe), HD re-releases, and fake British accents.

Be sure to check after the break to see if you snagged yourself one of five one-year PlayStation Plus subscription codes.
