Super Joystiq Podcast 024: Halo 4, Assassin's Creed 3, Disney buys Lucasfilm


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast accidentally puked in its helmet.

The season of huge releases is in full swing. Xav, Ludwig, JC and Richard head up the first segment to talk Halo 4, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Assassin's Creed 3, Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation, and Hotline Miami. Some fare better than others, but the inside of Master Chief's helmet somehow managed to stay mostly clean.

Alexander Sliwinski is the Joystiq Profile this week, and then it's on to news. Alexander, Jordan, and Dave hit the week's big stories. Get ready for discussion on Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm, Nintendo's first US Wii U commercial, Borderlands 2, XCOM Enemy Unknown, the new GTA V release window, Rhode Island's 38 Studios lawsuit, and Kickstarter crossing the pond.

Also, be sure to jump past the break to check out this week's giveaway.

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