After a long summer blockbuster games have finally returned. This week on Talking About Gamers join Robbie, Kyle and Addam as we discuss the two new releases this past week. First up is Sleeping Dogs, a slightly under the radar title showed promise. While it may not have blown anyone’s socks off, we all agree that it’s a solid entry in the open world genre. Slumbering canines aside, the big new release this week was the highly anticipated Darksiders II. Just like the first game we are big fans but this time around the lack of polish gives us pause.
Not everything is new releases this week as we go over some interesting new titles that debuted at GamesCom such asTearAway, Remember Me and Rain. Kyle takes some time to gush about the new multiplayer announcements for Halo 4 and Black Ops 2 and we also discuss the sad story of Onlive’s demise.

Treyarch has released the first trailer for the multiplayer side of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
Set in 2025, microwave transmitters, drones and EMP grenades are some of the futuristic tech you can expect to deploy in battle this time around.
I have to admit. I’m not a Call of Duty fan but this looks like your average COD multiplayer has been turned up a notch. Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.
Treyarch has released a new behind-the-scenes video for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
David S. Goyer (co-writer of The Dark Knight Rises), Trent Reznor (Academy Award-winning composer of The Social Network), Studio Head Mark Lamia and the game’s Director, Dave Anthony, discuss the relationship between movies, music and games, as well as the creative process behind Call of Duty: Black Ops II.
If there is one thing Kyle is known for on Talking About Gamers, it’s for loving things. Now it’s unclear if it’s because his PS3 died or because Steam is slowly draining his bank account, but something has turned him sour. This week join Jason, Kyle, Addam and guest Eddie (Psi Pilgrim) as they discover that Kyle has apparently become the new Robbie.
Summer rages on and that means we take a trip back in time to discuss oldie Castlevania: Lords of Shadows. We don’t shy away from new games, though, as Eddie tells us about the recently released Quantum Conundrum. There is news aplenty this week as we discuss some happenings from san Diego Comic Con including the Deadpool game, Fortnite, Assassin’s Creed 3 co-op and more. We also tackle the business side of gaming by talking about Sony buying Gaikai, Microsoft possibly buying Activision and the Ouya kickstarter that is, apparently, sweeping the nation.

The Tony Hawk franchise is little beyond a fond memory at this point. The days of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 being called one of the best games of all time is long gone and instead we have to deal with things like Tony Hawk Ride. Yuck.
When a franchise is at its lowest the best thing perhaps is to go back to what made the series great in the first place. For Tony Hawk that chance to rekindle the fire sits with Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD. The downloadable title is aiming to bring the best of the first two Tony Hawk titles back into the fold. If the reboot is successful it could even turn into a platform for future content.
Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD is hitting Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network this June.
