Super Joystiq Podcast 021: XCOM Enemy Unknown, Dishonored, Steam Greenlight issues


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast is all about choices. Will you commit to Psi Training, or possess a fish to get in through the sewers?

In the first segment, Xav, Richard, and Alexander convene to talk XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Dishonored. Both games hit most of the right notes with us, but there is still plenty discuss.

In news, Alexander, Jess, and Jordan kick things off with a discussion of OnLive's sad sale price, then move on to Chris Roberts' ambitious, crowd-funded space sim Star Citizen. Also on tap, Zynga's non-existent value, and a lengthy examination of the repercussions of Valve's Steam Greenlight indie game approval system.

Listen to the Super Joystiq Podcast:Details about each segment are available after the break.
