Super Joystiq Podcast 105: Wildstar, Dragon Age Inquisition, The Wolf Among Us, GaymerX2


This week's Super Joystiq Podcast has totally nailed the episodic format.

It may be international Destiny Beta week, but why not give the Pat Benatar a rest for a couple hours and educate yourself on video games while destroying those Fallen? This week, Ludwig, Susan, Jess, and Sam talk "WOW-killer" Wildstar, Nintendo games from E3, The Wolf Among Us finale, Dragon Age: Inquisition, and the benefits of being inclusive. Diversity in games likely means more of what you want, not less-- except we were going to exclusively reveal Rockstar's next big title on this very show, but we swapped it out for this conversation.*

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

*Senses of humor are available after the break as well if you need one. If not, fun joke right?!?
