The Price is Wrong - Ever wondered why games cost a lot more in Australia than they do overseas? Why hasn't our strong dollar helped us? Is Geography to blame? With the help of Christopher Zinn from Choice Magazine we explore why Aussie gamers pay the price.
Turning Point: Fall of Liberty - Presenting an alternate history where Winston Churchill died in a car crash before the second World War, the Nazis succeed in conquering all of Europe and Africa. They then set their sights on New York, and it's up to one average Joe to save the world, FPS style. Spark Interactive need a hit after recent legal troubles...see if they pull it off on Good Game.
No More Heroes - There ain't much in the way of action games for the Wii, but that could change - this is a quirky fuse of Japanese pop culture and American settings, where one pro-wrestler turned anime fan buys a lightsaber off eBay and decides to become the #1 assassin. Wii-mote slashing ensues.
Wanky Gaming Terms - Your guide to all the throwaway terminology you might hear from those of us that care more about bloom effects than clever game design.
All that plus more reviews, news, animations and silliness. You can catch Good Game on ABC2 @ 9pm tonight, late Friday nights after jjjTV on ABC1, and download every episode at www.abc.net.au/goodgame - we usually hang around the forums afterwards to chat & take suggestions.
Enjoy the show!
