Tom Chick subs in for sickly Danielle on Jumping the Shark #88. In addition to some continued Deus Ex conversation, some new games make their way onto our collective playlist, most notably, Space Marine, Dead Island, and Bloodrayne: Betrayal. After that, it’s all about game endings, when they detract from an otherwise great game, when they raise up an otherwise pedestrian game, and why a culminating boss-battle just isn’t necessary. Oh, and there’s a Yakaty Sax moment that’s not to be missed in this week’s outtakes. Enjoy!

Todd Brakke

Todd was born in Ann Arbor, with a Michigan helmet in one hand and a mouse in the other. (Never you mind the logistics of this.) He grew, vertically anyway, and is a 20-year publishing veteran as an editor of books on consumer tech and professional development for educators. Because that wasn't enough of a challenge, Todd was a 20-year part-time snob about video games, writing reviews, features, and more for multiple outlets from 1997-2015.
