GameSpot Asia Beat Ep. 1: Max Payne 3 multiplayer, Ghost Recon beta, "Comp Gacha" - May 10, 2012

On GameSpot Asia's pilot podcast episode, we talk about multiplayer action galore and some mobile gaming kerfuffle going on in Japan.


Greetings and salutations, fellow listeners. At long last, GameSpot Asia finally has its own podcast where the subject matter is what makes life worth living: video games. Lots of it.

Because it's rather awkward to have myself ramble into the mic for an hour, we've brought in a few of Singapore's finest game journalists. We have SG Cafe freelancer Sim Cheng Kai, ESPN Games' Marc "The Fraggot" Lim, and RazorTV's Bryan de Silva; they have been around the block, so trust us when we say that our esteemed guests know their subject matter.

This week's show focuses on the multiplayer build of Max Payne 3, a smattering of the Ghost Recon: Future Soldier beta, some Phantasy Star Online 2 action, and the tackling of Asian and international news. Enough talk--let the streaming commence!

Download the first landmark episode in all of its audio glory here. Also, post your approval/disdain/suggestions at the comments box below.

PS: The Wolfenstein link we mentioned is here. Happy hunting!

Why do people constantly refer "Current Gen" consoles as "Next Gen" - seriously stop that shit. Face it. our consoles are old.

The correct name of the recently legally restricted sales tactic is "Comp Gacha", Not Comp Gasha.
