NOTE: This was originally going to be the Book Club episode, but Arian and Robert couldn't make the show this time.

Doug and Kevin start the show off by peering into their navels in an attempt to get to the root cause of their current gaming lethargy/apathy. (note: some of this has been covered on the show before)
46:45 Doug reviews the Nintendo 3DSXL
56:00 Doug and Kevin become Nexus 7 buddies
1:12:00 New Super Mario Brothers 2
1:14:00 Darksiders 2

Only a 9 minute 3DSXL review but a 16 minute Nexus 7 review? I smell a bias.

Listened to your podcast.

I definitely agree that gaming has taken a nose dive.  To me, the PS2 was the best gaming platform ever as it had the sheer quantity and quality of software that hasn't been replicated since (sorry, the DS isn't remotely close).  Even if gaming does end up swirling down the toilet, there are hundreds of games available via MAME or PCSX2 or all kinds of past platforms out there that won't be going away.  Even if the next gen turns out to be crap and the indie scene gets tiresome, there's still a wealth of options out there.

I agree completely, you can still enjoy gaming even if the industry is in the pits- its just more work on our end. There's plenty that has been released worth playing. Doesn't mean this is a time for everyone to hang up their controllers, just need to go about things differently. However, if a person is just tired of gaming in general, and the current industry climate is simply not HELPING that larger issue- might be time to take a step back and look into your other interests.

Twice as long as the game can hold a grown mans interest.

Was hoping for some Press Reset talk but theres not much to say.

What is there to really say about it?  It's the same old 2D Mario with mediocre level design and an emphasis on coins.

Call Of Duty multiplayer is fun with friends.  I guess NSMB2 would be too, but nobody wants to play it.

Bump.

I forgot this was out. I'd like to hear what these curmudgeons think about the Nexus 7.
