PB & Jason Issue 130: In Which There is Absolutely No Mention of Disney Epic Mickey or Scribblenauts

C'mon, you can't expect every title to be 100% accurate, right?

This week's PB & Jason will probably lie to you. Don't believe what I say in the show's intro, as there isn't really anything about Pokémon in the podcast at all! If I were a betting man, I would also wager that somehow both Epic Mickey and Scribblenauts are discussed. Surprise! Tune in! Leave a comment! Send an email!

As mentioned in the podcast, here is a link to the article by Tevis Thompson discussing Bioshock Infinite and reviews in general.

In so many ways reviews are meaningless.  COD and GTA will sell ridiculous numbers regardless of the reviews.  They could have released GTA Online as a standalone release and it probably would have sold similar numbers to GTAV.

The only reason that I think I want reviews is to tell me if a game is broken.  I had already made up my mind to pick up Bioshock Infinite before I read a single review.  No review of GTAV would have been able to sway me to pick up a copy.   Gotham City Imposters had middling reviews, but I enjoyed every minute that I played of the game.  Call of Duty 4 got great reviews, but I hated it.

On a side note, considering my new job has a somewhat odd schedule and 12-hour shifts, PB & Jason is probably best to go live on Thursdays. So heads up, PB & Jason is now a Thursday release. Hooray? Boo? Who knows!

The Spectrum Retreat Review

Since Portal hit the scene around a decade ago, it’s inspired a variety of other games that have chosen to use the first person perspective for puzzle solving and storytelling, rather than the typical shooting. The Spectrum Retreat is one such game and it does well in both telling an interesting story and providing some great puzzles. However, these two elements rarely coalesce and more often feel like oil and water, separated naturally by the construct of the experience. Though it’s too bad the two don’t come together, what’s presented is still compelling thanks to ever evolving puzzle constructs and the gradual realization of what's going on in The Spectrum Retreat.
