On this week's G3 Podcast, Halo 4 leads us off!  The most anticipated game of the year is finally out, and it's good...or is it?  Randal will check in to talk to us about his Halo 4 launch experience, from standing in line in the middle of the freezing Toronto night to getting home and pulling an all-nighter with frequent G3 guest host Adam.  In case you missed it, they live streamed some of the multiplayer campaigns which you can catch archived on his Twitch channel.

More details:

After that, we discuss Playstation Magazine.  Holiday 2012 is the last issue, and PSM is the 3rd major gaming magazine shut down in the last 12 months.  A sign of things to come?

We'll then talk about some of the Complete TV Series on DVD for the first time, and what ease it adds to show fans to be able to buy the whole show in one shot.  Matt is a huge collecting nerd when it comes to TV Series, and has a bone to pick with the idea of original broadcasts vs. syndicated releases vs. extended editions. 

Lastly, we'll discuss video games and board games.  Zynga is branching their business into board games, and soon, you'll be able to pick up paper versions of Words with Friends and Draw Something.  HalfBrick licensed out Fruit Ninja earlier in the year and you can now find that board game on shelves.  We'll chat about our experiences with board games based on video games, and even vice versa. 

It's a full panel for this week's episode.  Christine, Beau and Matt will be joined by Randal and former guest Derrick Fargo.

The G3 Podcast is available to listen to starting at 8 PM Pacific / 11 PM Eastern on Thursday.
