Fantastic Neighborhood 41: And the award goes to…

We awake from our turkey-induced comas to regale you fine listeners with tales of the Wii U, unsophisticated shooters (Black Ops), Syndicate, and more. And lest we not forget, it’s almost time for the Video Game Awards™, presented with Double XP™ by Mountain Dew™ and Doritos™: Suck it Down!™ But seriously, Fred and Jon make their VGA picks, including Journey for Best Shooter and Nolan North for Outstanding Achievement in Being the Fucking Man (and voice acting). Buy Spec Ops.

In Game Club, we’ve got Thirty Flights of Loving. Is it a game? Is it art? What’s a fair price point? Spoiler warning: your two favorite hosts disagree. Next week is the final chapter of The Walking Dead.

As always, you can reach us at letters@fantasticneighborhood.com, or by calling 720.HOODIE.6 (720.466.3436). Follow FredJon, and the show on Twitter and like us on Facebook and Google Plus. Subscribe and rate us on iTunes. Jon is STILL looking for Halo friends, so hit him up on Twitter.
