Super Joystiq Podcast 069: The Wolf Among Us, Beyond Two Souls, MTB Freeride


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast is fully performance-captured.

Two story-driven games, two very different experiences. Ludwig, Susan, and Jordan convene to talk about the disappointing Beyond: Two Souls, Telltale's triumphant return in The Wolf Among Us, and an early beta open-world, first-person mountain biking game (yes, for real), MTB Freeride. We also answer an array of listener questions, mostly pertaining to the now-just-five-weeks-away next generation of consoles.

Joyswag is back with 20 codes available for indie game Irritum, and stick around after the show for a full, spoiler-filled breakdown of some of the more puzzling facets of Beyond: Two Souls's story.

Listen to the Super Joystiq Podcast: Podcast timestamps and relevant links are available after the break.
