Xbox 360 Fancast 046 -- Ferret Approved


Well, fanboys and girls, it was an exciting evening yesterday. Yesterday was not unlike a video game in many ways. We tested our platforming skills as we dodged the many ice-laden tree branches tumbling from the sky, and we also solved the puzzles of clearing said branches from the driveway, discovering where we could locate electricity, and untangling the the great stricture placed upon our intertubes. After a vicious battle with the icy tendrils of nature, we emerged victorious, as precious internet access was restored to our neck of the woods. Good thing too, because we've got a Fancast to deliver. This week we discuss the new GTAIV trailer, demo madness, and the hosing of Canadians and Xbox Live Silver members. We also chat about an interesting solution to COD4's "p" problem, poorly-reviewed games (and the buying of them), Achievement shame, and whether or not the FPS genre is getting stale. Oh, and we also have an announcement to make, but you'll have to listen to find out (or read the inevitable comments that will follow). Download, as always, from the list below.
