The Fraxial Show: Episode 35

This week’s game is Payday: The Heist on PS3. As usual, we start off with the typical game releases for this week. In terms of news, we discuss the recent bankruptcy of game publisher/developer THQ and how their assets were dissolved and acquired by a variety of other companies. Furthermore, Mike talks about his experience playing the new Sim City beta and we both go into our short time playing the new Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo. The hilarious game Surgeon Simulator also comes up as a topic of discussion.

Link to the Metal Gear Rising Counter-Attack system below. Please note the post is in Japanese however the videos demonstrate everything you need to know.
