[Denki for Listening] Episode 14 – Coming Soon to Steam: Poptarts

In Podcast by Kevin Kartanata

In this week’s podcast, we discuss our current stable of games, Infinity Blade, Generation of Chaos, and Borderlands 2. In news, we look at the (unfortunate) announcement of a Ghost in the Shell MMO by Nexon, Nintendo’s upcoming roster of games, and the death of consoles and cable channels. We also answer our second reader question, to the best of our web-searching abilities.

Also, we would like to apologize for the subpar audio quality this week due to technical issues.
