Super Joystiq Podcast 029: BioShock Infinite, Tomb Raider, Metal Gear Rising


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast thinks 1 billion = 1 million x 1 million.

This week is all about the games with three full segments of impressions and opinions. Richard, Mike Schramm, and Dave discuss the Tomb Raider reboot and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance after seeing them at recent preview events. At least one of these games has a boss with a dozen-plus arms.

In the second segment, Richard is joined by Jordan and freelancer Heidi Kemps to revisit one of his first loves-- 3D Sega fighters of yore. Virtua Fighter 2, Fighting Vipers, and Sonic the Fighters all get their due. Xav rounds out the game talk with a special BioShock Infinite check-in after last night's preview event.

News closes the show with Alexander, JC, Jess, and Sinan talking Peter Molyneux, Nintendo Power, Google Maps on Wii U, Steam Big Picture, and more.

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