Before jumping into more Wii U and E3 discussion, Scooter, Matt, Jose, and Jeremy talk about that whole Duke Nukem Forever release-plus-negative-review deal this week. Then we properly continue the E3-centric podcast discussion that we kinda-sorta started last week. More ruminations about the Wii U, a random tangent about Ghost Recon Future Soldier, some Star Trek, the preponderance of QTEs in modern games, and even more Ninja Gaiden 3. Plus, we rank the "take something from the big screen and put it on the small screen" methods of Transfarring, Wii U, and PS3-to-Vita. We'll resume with text and voicemail questions next week -- enjoy!…

Wait, this episode of Games, Dammit! is either a little too early, or way late. Either way, it's also short. We (meaning Scooter, Matt, Jeremy, and Jose) recorded this right after our last appointment(s) at E3, and before taking off for a staff dinner. So it's 26 minutes of raw, in-the-moment E3 discussion. What we liked at the show, what we wanted more of, and most importantly: why Jose likes Ninja Gaiden 3 while Matt doesn't. Stay tuned later this week for a full E3 decompression/discussion episode.…

This was supposed to go up right on Tuesday noon Pacific. But some technical issues cropped up and we end up not able to post this until E3 is over. So even though E3 passed, we recorded this before heading down to LA and thus really don't know what happened in the (now past) press conferences. Pretend this came out a few days ago, and get psyched for our full E3 blowout podcast next week.…

We talk a lot about Modern Warfare 3 and BioShock Infinite, while also touching on titles like Bastion, Renegade Ops, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, Ghost Recon Online, and more. We also talk about our favorite quotes from videogames, running speeds in FPS games, and a whole lot of inside-the-sausage-factory style stuff about reviews. Also, the random Inception noise comes up because we didn't want to name a specific company during one discussion. Until next week!…

Then we tackle questions about the review process, whether we want to truly see Mass Effect's Tali unmasked, and what sci-fi books would make good adventure games. Also, we briefly break an embargo, but rather than delete the conversation altogether, we edited it to feature dinosaurs in its place. Enjoy until next week!…

After that, we talk a bit about Namco's announcements -- ranging from the new Dark Souls and Armored Core titles to the role of the Power Rangers and whether "Unbounded" is a word. Afterwards, we deliver some thoughts on whether we should attend "Duke Nukem's Titty City" next week. Other topics include the new zombie MMO Class3/Class4 from Undead Labs and Microsoft, the rise of Hiphopgamer, a passionate (and lyrical) defense of Gamefan, the price of downloadable versions of retail games, and why Call of Duty isn't like Meet The Fokkers. Because of so many events and things, the show is a bit shorter, and we still haven't figured out what's going on next week due to the DICE Summit, but until we get our act together, keep listening!…

Besides the NGP, other topics include: comic books we recommend, racial diversity in videogames, our memories of the Atari Lynx, more storytelling in games, the trouble with doors, and violence in games. Oh, and we finally declare the end of the Elevator Action joke, so don't leave any more messages on that topic.

What happens when one podcaster goes to CES, you have a new office with a podcast studio that lacks headphones, and you bring in guests from Double Fine? You get this Work-In-Progress-Sounding version of "Games, Dammit!" for the first week of 2011! Subbing in for Frank Cifaldi, we invited Tim Schafer (studio founder) and Lee Petty (project director) from Double Fine to sit and jabber with us. As a result, we have about an hour-and-a-half's hour of talk about games like Minotaur Rescue, Enslaved, Limbo, Dead Space 2, Heavy Rain, and, of course, Double Fine's Stacking. We also have Tim and Lee tackle questions about writing, the funniest thing that's happened to them, and CES memories. Unfortunately, as we recorded this without headphones (still setting up our new office space), we didn't know how our podcast actually sounded until post-production. So unfortunately, while you can get the essence of jokes about Weekend At Bernie's and how it relates to games, the definition of a "scotch nipple," or Lee's office antics at previous studios he's worked at, the reality is that sometimes, we all fade in and out of the podcast depending on how close we're leaning towards the microphone while talking. Oops. Our sincerest apologies for our un-optimal setup this week, enjoy what you can, and we'll have the podcast studio finalized and kinks ironed out for next week.…

Games-wise, we talk about Stacking and Back to the Future -- in addition to each cast member detailing his personal Game of the Year (and the one 2011 he's looking forward to). You also learn that Scooter has a frankly irrational association with the number 12. Besides that, we tackle listener questions about elevator action pitches, time travel paradoxes, whether a game can address a heady issue like the Holocaust, and what is worth a dollar nowadays. And just like your uncle who keeps on ranting long after he's no longer relevant to your conversation, we close out the year by reminiscing about our Ziff-Davis days for way too long. Happy holidays,and we'll be back in 2011!…

But then we frequently get sidetracked by things such as poetry from the past, the brief loss and rebirth of red M and Ms, our feelings about Gamefan, our advice for covering arcade expos, and just for you, an aural unboxing of some upcoming hardware.
