Super Joystiq Podcast 026: Wii U, Black Ops 2, New Super Mario Bros. U


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast refuses to play air guitar.

Weeks don't get much bigger for the games industry than a new console launch and a Call of Duty release. Xav, Ludwig, JC, and Richard kick off the show with some thoughts on Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, the unfortunate Call of Duty: Declassified for PS Vita, and whole lot on the Wii U, Nintendo Land, and New Super Mario Bros. U.

Jordan gets the profile treatment this week, and then Alexander and Team Rocket (also known as Jess and Jordan) hit the news. The crew covers Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 sales numbers, Gabe Newell's induction into AIAS Hall of Fame, Faceless getting denied release on Steam, and more.

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.
