It’s Monday and we’re back with the first NGB podcast of 2012! Sorry about the slight delay in our return, we hope you all had a good Christmas break and a drunken new year.
This week Asim is joined by Aryel, Adrian and Rob, the latter making his debut on the NGB podcast. The guys kick things off by talking about what they have been playing, and follow that up with discussion relating to the following new stories:
- Grand Slam Tennis 2 and Final Fantasy XIII-2 demos
- Razer unveil Fiona concept PC gaming tablet
- Diablo III rumoured release in February, console versions confirmed
- XCOM: Enemy Unknown Announced, screenshots also revealed
- New Medal of Honor and NFS outed by GAME tweet
- PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 to be unveiled at E3? Sony (Kaz Hirai) refutes claims and suggests next console will be disc-based
- UK’s best selling games of 2011 revealed, Modern Warfare 3 on top
There is no Twitter Asks section this week (don’t worry, it will be back next Monday), as the guys devote an entire section of the podcast to discuss the PlayStation Vita. Ahead of the European and North American launch on February 22nd, after several hours of hands-on time, Asim and Adrian give their verdict on Sony’s latest handheld. Aryel and Rob also chime in with their thoughts, stating whether or not they will be purchasing a unit on launch.
