GotY 2011, Day the Third (018)

                                                                                 
[SPOILERS ABOUND IN THE RECORDING]
Dusk of the Third Day. Today we get crack-a-lackin’ with our favorite Xbox 360 games, then move on to discuss why Uncharted 3 – despite its merits – isn’t all that and a bag of chips. From there we head into the Tomb of the Giants (i.e., a dark and confusing place) to break down the weirdness of the terms “co-op” & “multiplayer” in 2011, then things get artistic as we rap about story, music, and more music. We wrap up the day with our favorite studio, game/news outlet, and the much coveted Worst Game of the Year. Click that big red title to download now! ^^^
