Between the launches of Heavenly Sword and DmC: Devil May Cry, Ninja Theory released Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. Though it sold a lackluster number of copies, the 2010 title went on to achieve a cult following. Players take on the role of the world-wise Monkey as he finds himself thrust into an unlikely partnership with a young woman named Trip. Does the action-adventure game based on a 420-year-old Chinese novel stand as one of the best games period?
Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative.
You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is available as well (again delayed this week due to technical difficulties), so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it!
