The Curse of 3s, or the 2011 Holiday Gaming Season

by G. Christopher Williams

12 December 2011

Is the glut of game sequels at year's end a blessing or a curse?
 

Battlefield 3, Gears of War 3, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Saints Row: The Third, Uncharted 3.  That’s a whole lot of 3s.

While focused especially on the “trilogies” being concluded in 2011, this episode Rick, Nick, and I discuss the year in gaming on the whole, while considering whether or not the glut of sequels at year’s end is a blessing or a curse.
