The DTOID Show: 2012 in Retrospecticus


4:30 PM on 07.01.2012



I know what you're thinking. "But Tara, the year's only half over!" Well yes, technically that's true, but it doesn't mean we can't stop and take a moment to gather our thoughts on this year's video game releases, does it?

...Okay fine, you caught me. Max and I were down in Anaheim for VidCon on Friday and this sounded like as good a topic as any for a pre-recorded episode. When you think about it, though, a lot has changed since the beginning of the year. Untimely delays, massive layoffs, and fan feedback are just a few of the things that can shape the gaming industry without our realizing it.

So today, we take a look back at 2012's most memorable games thus far, before looking forward to see what the rest of the year has to offer us. The results just might surprise you! (But probably not.)

Playthrough: Destiny's Mars has cars, but not a single hot dog in sight

I've come down with a bad case of Dumpster Mono, and Max Scoville is terrified of germs, so he made me stay home so he could play Destiny and call it 'work'. But, without my responsible guidance, he got tricked into playing ...more

Max and Bill must kill the Moon-Princes

Man, Destiny. I seriously can't remember the last game that I felt so ambivalent about, but was so completely hooked on. Here's me and Bill dicking around on the Moon and discussing our general thoughts on the game, and killing the Moon-Princes with a big dumb sword. Is it a "Let's Play?" I don't know. But we're enjoying ourselves, and maybe you'll enjoy watching our enjoyment.more
