Inspired by the effusive reviews that The Witcher 2 has been receiving, we're dedicating this week's discussion to the importance of story in video games. We've also got talk of Fez, Bit.Trip Saga, Driver, and more!

Grappling hooks for everyone! On this week's show, we're talking about our favorite (and regrettably underutilized) gameplay mechanics. We've also got talk of poop, divorce, bad-assery, QTEs, and fighting games!

It's a Hangover takeover! Rather than squeezing this week's gaming talk into the first segment of the show like we usually do, we've decided to dedicate the entire episode to Kid Icarus, Xenoblade Chronicles, and the recent Battlefield 3 updates! Game on!
