Fantastic Neighborhood 42: Life, The Universe, Zombies, and Everything

After forty-two, do we really have any more milestones before 100? After all, not only is forty-two important to the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, it was also Jackie Robinson’s number. So yeah. Where were we? Right. Games.

This week we break our promise to stop talking about Borderlands 2, Fred sees a Zelda Orchestra and Jon discovers the greatest video game movie of all time – Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn. Then we mull over MoMA adding videogames and contemplate picking up Far Cry 3.

For the main event, we have a very special guest for our discussion of the final Walking Dead episode in Game Club. We’re joined by Perpetual Geek Machine’s own Dan Zuccarelli and proceed to spoil the crap out of the whole series. Play this game. Listen to our discussions. Compare your choices. Profit.

Next week, join us for the first half of Hotline Miami.

Please contribute to our holiday fundraiser for AbleGamers. You can win cool prizes.
