Despite this episode’s title, we only talk about the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special for few minutes (and Bill dishes some spoilers while talking more about Adventures in Time and Space), while Anne contemplates if Assassin’s Creed IV may be her favorite game in the series and teaches us all about “laving”. Also on the menu: Thanksgiving talk, Man of Steel, The World’s End, Super Mario 3D World and the new 3DS Zelda game.
Anne’s out of town again this week, so listeners Daniel “The Grumpy Turtle” Rutis and Scott “Cannon Heart” Douglas have stepped into her shoes to talk with Bill about memories of past console launches and our favorite (and least favorite) games of the Xbox 360, Wii and PS3 generation of videogames.
It’s our last regular podcast before the PS4 launches in two weeks (Anne will be out of town next weekend), so we spend a lot of time this week justifying whether or not to buy a PS4 at launch, all while Anne has several small meltdowns over the prospect of seeing Nathan Drake in SUPER PS4 HD someday.
On this day in 1913, The Boy Howdy Podcast was discovered living amongst a tribe of wild wolves in Sri Lanka – The Boy Howdy Podcast was clothed only in a comic book loincloth and was eating Spaghettios out of a can with its bare hands before it was transplanted to England and taught the King’s English at Cambridge.
Now, 100 years later, The Boy Howdy Podcast is looking back at its rich legacy of talking badly about things no one with any sense should buy, with podcast listener Grumpy Turtle on hand to make sure Anne and Bill don’t eat lead paint before the episode is over.
This week we overcome boob blisters and cluster headaches to bring to the finest impromptu celebration of Uncharted 2′s 4th birthday you’re likely to hear on a podcast this week. Also, plenty of talk about Beyond: Two Souls (and Heavy Rain), the first episode of Telltale Games’ Wolf Among Us, Parks and Recreation, Wind Waker HD, Curse of the Werewolf, Anne’s trip to LAIKA and Bill’s final thoughts about Grand Theft Auto V.
