Following Jon's epic brainfart regarding his ideal vision for Army of Two, we decided to have a podcast week where we simply chat about a few outlandish gaming ideas that we'd like to see, and directions we'd have some existing franchises take if anything was possible and we had the power to sculpt the future.
With that in mind, Carl delivers a concept for a really dark Mario reboot; Jon puts Metroid in a pot together with Platinum Games and Prey 2 to pitch the best bounty hunting game ever; we discuss the advantages for realising wishlists and dreams that Kickstarter is affording; we lament that the there are still so many awesome Japanese games that will never make it West (though Ni No Kuni will); Matt pleads that Dragon Age II be struck from history and instead replaced with Dragon Age: Origins II, a true sequel that directly follows on from the fantastic first game; and we look forward to a generation that sees everybody, most of all the consumer, winning.
Parental Advisory: We've tried to keep it as conversational and informal as possible, and you should be warned that there may be quite a few instances of strong language.
