Fantastic Neighborhood Episode 7

Lucky number 7. Fantastic Neighborhood officially endorsed Peeta as our choice for Katniss’ love interest.

With that out of the way, Fred plays Sine Mora, I am Alive, Outland, and Abobo’s Big Adventure. Jon finished Mass Effect 3. We both drew a ton of cocks in Draw Something. Our main discussion topic is the effect of DLC on the industry and the consumer, then we talked about Tim Schafer waaay too much. Iron Brigade, Monkey Island, and an unreleased prototype (swoon).

Next up on game club is Mirror’s Edge – play through the opening and the first 3 story missions. Check out our friends over at Perpetual Geek Machine and send your letters to letters@fantasticneighborhood.com. Oh, and please rate us on iTunes! Party On!
