RevolutionSF Podcast : 2013 Year in Review : Video Game Edition

Once more we’ve come to the end of another solar cycle, which means it’s time to take a fond (and sometimes un-fond) look back at the highs and lows of 2013.

In the first of these special episodes, RevNews host Gary Mitchel has blown on the cartridges, pulled out the save files and loaded in Player 1: Tegan Hendrickson and Player 2, Christina Janke to discuss the year in video games! From the new Console Wars, to Steam Sales and Humble Bundles, there was a lot to talk about!
