Welcome to episode 26 of our little show, adventurers. This week we open up with technology news, talking about Apples stock, Apple bringing Google Maps back, Dells obsession with the PC market, the petition for the White House to build a Death Star and we ask the question: Are we in the Matrix? From there we move on to level 2: gaming news where we cover what Square-Enix is up to, how well the 3DS is ACTUALLY doing, Cliffy-Bs plans for the future. We also find out what the most played games of 2012 were, how THQ fared with the bundle fund-raiser, what they learned from it and talk about GOG.com’s amazing holiday deal.
We bounce over to level 3, entertainment news from there. We kick it off talking about the possibility of a Spy Hunter movie, what’s going on with the next Tron movie and AMCs plans for valentines day. During drinks at the Inn we ask: How much information is too much information when it comes to trailers?
