Super Joystiq Podcast 084: Infamous Second Son, Lightning Returns, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast only accepts greeting cards that play a song when you open them.

Is there really any better way to start a Valentine's Day gaming podcast than with an in-depth discussion on greeting cards? This week, Ludwig, Susan, and Anthony talk mostly games, some Nintendo, and dare to cover the ever-controversial topic of tissue paper-lined holiday greeting cards. We know it can be a heated topic, so if you do feel the need to discuss greeting cards in the comments, just make sure to keep it as civil as possible, and strive to listen to others' point of view. We don't want a repeat of the great 2001 greeting card comment war.*

Oh right, games! The show is packed with games too! Susan shares her thoughts on Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc's inability to commit, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII gets flowers AND candy, and Ludwig spills some details of a recent date with Infamous: Second Son. Nintendo made some news this week with its latest Nintendo Direct, and there seems have been some questionable choices made surrounding the approach to free-to-play-- we may be in need of a serious talk about this relationship.

Happy Valentine's Day, lovebirds!
