Hello all and welcome to the latest episode of Lapsed Gamer Radio. This week Mark, Andy and Stuart manage to keep the dream alive of picking up the controller more often.
We kick-off with a few quick listener questions covering THE DIVISION: INCURSIONS update and what games we want to complete before the end of the year.
Our main section is of course, our opportunity to catch-up on the news of what we’ve been playing recently – featuring discussion of L.A. NOIRE, BURN IT DOWN, LOST REAVERS Beta, THE DIVISION, DESTINY, DARK SOULS III, SPLATOON, MARIO KART 8, THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: THE WIND WAKER, GOD OF WAR: ASCENSION and MIDDLE EARTH: SHADOW OF MORDOR.
We then proceed to have our customary brief natter about any gaming news stories that have caught the team’s interest.
