XBLAFancast Episode 43 – Games, games, games.

Happy new year! With the holidays not long ended there’s not much news to speak of so it’s a bumper episode of (almost) nothing but game talk.

Community Manager Andrew Crews joins the regular crew of myself, Perry and Todd to talk about all the games we’ve been playing over the break. It’s a long list which includes everything from Renegade Ops, Sonic The Hedgehog 4, Battlefield 1943 to Meteos Wars, All Zombies Must Die!, Doritos Crash Course and many more. It’s  packed show, so stop reading this and get listening!

Apologies if the audio is a bit off this week, we had to resort to a backup because of some technical issues.

Please subscribe, comment, review the podcast on iTunes and tell your friends! We appreciate it! Check us out on twitter (@XBLAFans) where you can win codes for games, give us feedback or just ask a question.

Major Nelson released the Top 20 XBLA sales for the week of December 15. 2011; these stats are based on individual full game purchases.
