On this week’s episode of The Co-op we were joined by both Anthony Frasier and Carl Daniel (the mute). We talked extensively about Sony Santa Monica‘s decision to rename the God of War: Ascension trophy “Bros before Hoes” due to Adam Sessler kicking up a fuss. In my opinion the trophy was within context to the events in the game, and there’s no way it could have been offensive especially because the female character didn’t actually die. But perhaps you may disagree? If so then have your say below.
Also on this podcast we share our thoughts on Tomb Raider, breaking down our likes and dislikes. We speak on Saint’s Row IV and what we want from the game. How much will they push the limits of slapstick over the top humor this time? Will Deep Silver taking ownership over the series change it in any way? And we also reflect on EA’s catastrophe with the launch of Sim City, what are our thoughts on DRM? Interestingly Carl Daniel gives Anthony Frasier a years subscription to Playstation Plus live on the show, with the request that Ant returns to his show with his thoughts on the service.
