In Jumping the Shark #103 the gang, sans a Bill but plus a Tom, talks our favorite games of the year. Prior to that Tom and I get knee deep into The Old Republic, Brandon and Danielle discuss their love-hate relationship with Skyward Sword, and there’s plenty more. This one was a quick and sloppy edit, what with it being Christmas weekend. Speaking of which, I hope you all had a safe and wonderful Christmas. I hope to be back on later in the week with some more thoughts on the Jedi-Sith relationships in Old Republic. First, though, I need to actually get back to playing it!

Episode #102 of Jumping the Shark is up and features a visit from the Senior Producer of the upcoming MMO RTS End of Nations, Chris Lena. I missed out, celebrating my daughter’s birthday, but the rest of the gang is on the case, digging up everything they can on the latest project from Petroglyph. After that Brandon talks about Driver and Infinity Blade and why Space Marine didn’t meet his expectations. Danielle finds Skyward Sword awkward to swing, but does fall in love with Mario 3D Land, and Bill sweeps down into Arkham City to mete out some vigilante justice.

The the post 100 era of Jumping the Shark begins this week with episode 101 in which Bill, Brandon and I do pretty much the same sorts of stuff we’ve been doing for nearly 2 years. (I originally typed “200 years” there and isn’t that troubling?) Bill epilogues Dark Souls and begins his adventures in Saints Row 3, I finally pin down my biggest grievance with Skyrim’s gameplay and why it doesn’t appeal to me the way it probably should, and Brandon ventures back to the streets of Arkham City, while also taking a look the Infamous 2 DLC: Festival of Blood. After that it’s our most disappointing gaming moments of the year, in which we talk about burying sports games, the letdown of Dragon Age 2, and Brandon’s long list of games that were naughty to him this year.

Enjoy!

The big moment has arrived! The one you’ve been waiting for! Nearly two years in the making! Todd gets a haircut! Exclamation points!!!! Wait. No. That’s not right. Oh, yes. Here it is: Jumping the Shark Episode 100! For this extra special occasion we do… pretty much what we do every week, only this week with an extra dose of navel-gazing and with the addition of our most favoritist special guests – Troy Goodfellow and Tom Chick. Our topic this week gets personal as we talk about how our lives have changed in the nearly two years since we recorded our very first episode. Prior to that we talk what we’ve been playing. Bill wraps up his 128 hour epic run through Dark Souls. Tom talks city-builder Anno 2070 and Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. Troy gives the lowdown on his time with Crusader Kings 2, Memoir ’44 Online, and multiplayer Blood Bowl. I go nuts with Spelltower and Skyrim. Brandon sings Kumbaya with the cast of NCIS. And Danielle plays more Goldeneye and tells us why her next game-making effort is not Bowling 2.0.

On a serious note, our sincere thanks to all of you listeners who have been a part of making these 100 episodes possible. We really do appreciate that you take time out of your week, every week, to listen to us ramble on about stuff we’d otherwise just be saying to ourselves over IM. You make the effort worth the time we put into recording every single week and we hope you’ll be around for the next 100, or however many we manage to get through before Bill’s hand takes on a life of its own, stabbing me with a spork and forcing Danielle and Brandon into hiding. This one’s for all of you!
