Jeff and Christian welcome Garnett Lee from Weekend Confirmed and 1up Yours to DLC. For his Story of the Week pick, Garnett has NPD numbers and more that lead him to believe that Microsoft might be in danger of falling far behind Sony in the console race. Christian is more disturbed by the proposed Comcast acquisition of Time Warner and what that might mean in absence of Net Neutrality. But Jeff is just too excited about his playtime in the Titanfall Beta to think anything other that that could be SotW. He gushes about piloting giant robots, hacking specters, and double jumping his way around the maps. The guys debate the merits of multiplayer-only games, the danger of micro-transactions in the form of Burn Cards, and more as callers weigh in with their feelings on Titanfall, too. There is also the fact that thousands of people have been playing Pokemon together, and the announcement of a new FPS music game from Harmonix to discuss, before Tabletop Time. Jeff fills the guys in on his experience playing T'zolkin: The Mayan Calendar at Orc Con in Los Angeles, and discusses the evolution of worker-placement games. All that, plus the announcement of DLC's upcoming March Madness! Get your submissions for the tournament games in to [email protected]!
