Fantastic Neighborhood 22: Ouya – Oh Yeah or Oy Vey?

This is a big one. Per Fred’s request, Jon riffs on more stuff. Consumption Junction kicks off with Fred playing lots of stuff – some of it even on iPad: Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3, DOFUS Battles One and Two, Sonic CD, and Empire Defense 2. Jon falls hard for Spec Ops: The Line, and introduces the wife to The Iron Giant. In hype bonanza, we cover LEGO sets, Steam sales, and the caption contest, currently happening on our Facebook page. For our main discussion topic, we choose sides on the Ouya console. Then we wrap up Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Next week’s game club is The Walking Dead: Episode 2.
