Super Joystiq Podcast 025: Wii U, DOTA 2, Paper Mario 3DS


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast like to kill its own creeps.

It's a packed show this week. Xav, JC, and Richard start the show with a lengthy discussion of the Wii U hardware. The guys also cover some of the smaller releases of the holiday season including Primal Carnage, LittleBigPlanet Karting, and Paper Mario: Sticker Star.

Xav gets the Joystiq Profile treatment this week, and then freelancer Brian Leahy, and Mike Schramm join in to cover the ins and outs of the MOBA scene. DOTA 2, League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth, and more get their due time. Halo 4 even squeaks some time in near the end.

Alexander, Ludwig, Jess and Dave close the show with news.

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