Fantastic Neighborhood 51: Gettin’ Over It

jon bridge

Welcome back! This week, we discuss the HAWTest new releases, like Saints Row 3 and The Amazing Spider-Man for DS. After all that hotness, we cool it down with an in-depth look at the lore of the Fast and Furious universe, speculation about the PS4, and more! Game Club is Mark of the Ninja. Oh, don’t forget to pre-order Bioshock: Infinite and Gears of War: Judgement.

Next week’s game club is Analogue: A Hate Story. If you’re playing along, please consider buying it straight from the developer.

We’ll also be discussing Tom Bissell’s Extra Lives: Why Video Games Matter.
