EvilCast Recap, Episode #207

EvilCastIt looks like it is time for the team to get back onto the gaming news grind, now that we are well into 2014. Though Keri was out on “Mommy Duty,” this week Chris, Ross, and Blake soldiered on, talking about talking about topics like NPD results for December, everything SteamBox coming out of CES, and SimCity receiving the offline mode that it should have launched with. Better late than never. Right Maxis?

Inspired by Dorkly’s Gone Home mock trailer, Ross whipped up his Top 5: “Pretentious Game Remakes.” Naturally, Blake didn’t agree with any of the choices for lampooning, but does he ever agree with Ross? We’re going to go with, no.
