This week’s podcast we cover the surprising comeback of retro shooters like Wolfenstein and Doom. Both games are remarkably good and for very different reasons. Compare that to a game like Duke Nukem that cannot figure out a reason for its existence. With games like Painkiller, Bulletstorm, and the excellent Shadow Warriors 2, we’re seeing a good place for retro-style shooters and hope to see more.
Also we’re complaining (like everyone else) at how crummy it is for Nintendo to pull another short-supplied console to create artificial demand with the SNES Classic.
We’ll see you next week!
