Fantastic Neighborhood 47: Les Misérables 2: Fantine’s Revenge
You guys, I dreamed a dream, in times gone by, when hope was high and life worth living, that Fred and Jon would reunite in the new year to record a regular-ass episode of Fantastic Neighborhood. So we’re back. Big thanks to all our charity partners, you champions of accessibility. Prizes will ship soon. After a long consumption junction (featuring big games like Far Cry 3, Forza Horizon, and Adult Swim’s Major Mayhem), and a Les Mis critique, we dish more predictions (next gen controllers game streaming, and alternate pricing structures), resolutions (to stay away from Cheap Ass Gamer and Thrifty Nerd), and awards (Spoiler – The Pinball Arcade wins everything, forever. Game of the century). Game Club sees the boys facing down their holiday challenges, Spec Ops: The Line and Gitaroo Man.
For the rest of the month, we’ll be playing XCOM and talking about our squads and missions and stuff.
As always, you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 720.HOODIE.6 (720.466.3436). Follow Fred, Jon, and the show on Twitter and like us on Facebook. Subscribe and rate us on iTunes.
