On this weeks show, Chris has gas problems and is unable to join us. So Conner and I solider on as we are known to do. In our Early Premonition segment, Conner enlightens us on the ever-growing world of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and why he can't stop talking about it. I hit the mean streets in a cape and cowl in Batman: Arkham City (release date 10/18/11). In the main screen I complete my Rage review, as well as, my review of Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. Conner steps in to the light and gives his review of Dark Souls and compares it to its predecessor Demon Souls. Then we dust off some old favorites, Conner (no surprise) reviews Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. I wrap up in a big way with my review of Shadow of the Colossus.
