This week, Garnett Lee welcomes back his partner-in-crime, Jeff Cannata, along with Nikole Zivalich and Marcus Beer of Annoyed Gamer fame. It doesn't take long for Garnett and Jeff to have their first friendly disagreement, like all couples do, as they have a spirited debate about Tomb Raider. There's also talk more about SimCity and its tumultuous roads (that may or may not be curved), as well as God of War: Ascension and Mass Effect 3's Citadel DLC. And after her epic Pokemon rant, Nikole Z's ready to give everyone an encore when she talks Gears of War.

  • I just want to say: I hope none of the listeners out there are basing their decision to buy (or not buy) the Citadel DLC based on the conversation this week.

    I love Nicole, and I found her description of the DLC hilarious (as I believe it was intended to be), but I felt like Jeff, Garnett, and Marcus were taking Nicole's whimsical summary as a hard-lined review, and thus trash-talked it a bit.

    The point I feel was missed in this week's discussion is that the Citadel DLC is pure 100% fan-service. Its a chance to revisit all the characters you've come to know and love throughout the Mass Effect trilogy, take them on a fun adventure together, and see them in some hilarious social circumstances. Many ME fans in the community are calling it "the perfect sendoff". So I would hardly say Mass Effect has "jumped the shark". It's a fun, light-hearted adventure with lots of genuinely funny dialog and character moments.
