2012: The Gaming Year in Review
on Saturday, January 12, 2013
2012 was... a year in gaming. Just another year. But there was some cool stuff that happened, and this video is about all the games Roland played this year that he didn't already get a chance to talk about, including Spec Ops: The Line, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Tribes: Ascend, MechWarrior Online, Hawken, Alan Wake (the PC version), and a bunch of indie games.
In part two, Roland talks to his friend Codeknight about a few high profile games that Roland didn't get around to playing this year. Pretty big spoilers abound for Assassin's Creed III, Dishonored, X-COM: Enemy Unknown, and Jagged Alliance: Back in Action.

“These are the movies that almost nobody is excited about, and that almost nobody is looking forward to seeing (though, if history is any guide, people will still turn out in droves to pay to see them anyway).”Are superheroes fascist?
“Many people seem to be under the impression that modern superhero comics are fundamentally nothing more than male power fantasies about violent Übermenschen going around imposing their will on the world through force and terror.”Stop saying ‘free speech’ only applies to the government
“Free speech is not only about what the government can or can’t do. The right to free speech means it’s wrong for any entity, governmental or not, to try to silence you.”
