EAR Episode 112: “The Trust Bank”

“The Trust Bank” – for gamers, the amount of trust they hold for a developer’s latest project. If it’s been good before, we trust it’ll be good again. It’s brought up during our discussion of Call Of Duty: World At War. Our trust bank’s for Treyarch aren’t near to the amount of trust in the bank’s we have for Infinity Ward. Same goes for Sega in our thoughts on Sonic Unleashed.

We spend a bit of time discussing those games but in honor of Ticket To Ride’s debut on XBLA this week, we comb over our childhood in search of other classic games we’d like to see show up in digital form. While we do nail some gems in the list, nothing comes close to Hungry Hungry Hippos. Button mashing at its finest.

Also in this episode we welcome Ten19 to the program to tell us of the updates dished out during the week in the MMO world, we talk of reviewers and the interesting relationship they have with publishers, plus we take a look at Limbo Of The Lost and see just how much you can cram into a game without actually doing anything yourself.

From there we head to the depths of the studio and talk about completely random things. Seriously, it’s totally random stuff. There’s web design, health issues, Fireball Island, pigeons, and Leonard Nimoy. Like I said….random.
