The Press Room Episode #134

Date 2012-11-11

Shane “Aspro” Kournikova, Derek “Yodariquo” and Tom “Foolz” Towers host the 134th episode of The Pressroom. We play Resident Evil 5 (PS3) during the podcast but also give impressions of WWE13 (PS3), Dota 2 (PC), Deadlight (PC), Hyperdimensia Mark II (PS3), Silent Hill: Shattered Dreams (PS2), Suikoden (PS1), Suikoden V (PS2), Rainbow Six (PS1/PC/N64) and Killzone 2 (PS3).

At the 49 minute mark a discussion of the definition of “art” and the public funding thereof takes place. This is not game related in any way. If you want to skip it, our regular discussion continues at the 1 hour and one minute mark*

Halo 4
THQ is Almost Dead
GTA V News
Video Game Journalism
At the 1:59 mark a discussion of parenting and child rearing takes place. This is not game related, so you can cut out at this point, though the conversation is interesting. Also, Yoda’s audio is pretty bad from this point on in the podcast*
