Super Joystiq Podcast 078: The Room Two, Device 6, Nintendo announcements, Assassin's Creed 4


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast is totally into elderly mystical champions with pun-names derived from dairy foods.

As we near the end of the year, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag is still on the playlist, but smaller titles are capturing just as much of our attention. Ludwig, Susan, Richard, and Anthony talk collectables, horror games, and recent mobile gems. On the docket: Device 6, The Room, Gone Home, and a whole load of Nintendo announcements.

JoySwag is back this week with a bullet headset. Listen in to see how you can possibly snag yourself an Astro A50 Battlefield 4 Headset.

All hail YogHurt.
