[Denki for Listening] Episode 17 “403 Error: The SimCity Experience”

In Podcast by Kevin Kartanata

In this week’s podcast, Davis takes a trip to Japan with Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, Eldon raids tombs in (what else) Tomb Raider, and Kevin courageously fights for freedom on Middle Eastern streets on the early access version of Insurgency 2. In news, we look at EA’s Simcity debacle, Strike Suit Zero‘s newest patch, and My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic‘s new life as an original standalone title.
