Fair warning to everyone, The Avengers are discussed again, and there will be spoilers. This movie is far too good to pass up talking about!
The other topics this week included an update on the status of Star Wars: The Old Republic and its declining users, the rise of casual gaming and its impact on Nintendo and Sony, Zynga potentially suing to trademark the usage of 'ville', the announcement of Axe Cop the cartoon, the death of traditional TV viewing and the rise of the streaming movement, rumors about a Steam console, and making fun of the long delayed Starcraft Ghost. Also, there was a conversation about The Avengers and if that movie had made The Dark Knight Rises less exciting. The group thinks the movie will be good, but it will be a tough fight against The Avengers. Finally, there was a spirited debate about Maxim's Gamergirl contest and whether this reinforces poor stereotypes. This topic will be back, we promise that!
