Jumping the Shark
No High Scores' official podcast.

This week it's the Todd and Brandon show as Todd continues to gush over Pillars of Eternity, Brandon explains why he stopped playing it to start playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3D and then they take a little detour into the town of Salem for Murdered: Soul Suspect before arguing over the new Star Wars trailer. Good times.

Thanks for listening! (You can contact Brandon at Brandon@NoHighScores.com/@misterbinky, Todd at Todd@NoHighScores.com/@ubrakto and Holly at @winnersusedrugs.)

This week brings a big, deep, crunchy look at the results of Obsidian Entertainment's highly successful Kickstarter project, Pillars of Eternity. Does this kind of Infinity Engine-inspired RPG work in 2015? (Yeah, you already know the answer to that.) We also kick off with a look back at Wrath of Khan and a wrap-up that features Assassin's Creed: Rogue, kicking zombies for levels in Dying Light, and much marveling at AMC's The Walking Dead.
