Random Encounter 38 - The End of the Year Spectacular!
2011 in review, Kingdoms of Amalur in preview and predictions for 2012!
01.12.12 - 9:45 AM

We certainly promised you guys a big end of the year episode, and by God did we ever deliver. The crew starts by sitting down for an in-depth discussion of 2011. From Dragon Age II to Skyrim, the podcast gang analyzes the major releases and trends in the genre (and industry) we all love. In the second segment, Rob, John, Kyle and Dave talk about Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, one of the first big RPGs of 2012. Finally, the podcasters take a look into the RPGFan Crystal Ball (TM) and come up with some predictions for the new year. Will we finally get Persona 5? What about Mass Effect 3? Is Diablo III destined to be the best game of 2014?! Only time will tell....

A word of warning: This episode is long, at just shy of three hours long. We've provided the full episode in a single MP3, or we've split it up into two more digestible parts. How you listen is up to you!

Featuring: Robert Steinman, John McCarroll, Stephen Meyerink, Zachary Pintchik, Dave Yeager and Kyle Miller
