Podcast: Episode 82 – Assassin’s Creed: Liberation, When Vikings Attack and Looper

Peter and I have said this in the past but it is particularly tricky to write about a podcast you weren’t able to make the recording for. That’s right, sadly I was off at a meeting talking to students, and it clashed with our regularly scheduled recording time. Fortunately the ever capable Lewis took over hosting duties, with Peter and Kev keeping him company.

I did a quick edit on this week’s podcast, so I haven’t really had a chance to listen to what they talked about. I’m informed by Lewis that he talked about Looper, whilst Kev chipped in with a bit on Star Wars Angry Birds. However, it’s perfectly possible that he’s an outright liar, particularly about Star Wars Angry Birds, and is not to be trusted.

If it turns Lewis is telling the truth then you can also hear him tell you about Red Lights, and from Peter on Assassin’s Creed: Liberation. Finally the pair of them combined their powers to talk about When Vikings Attack.

On top of that there’s the normal news, quiz and listener questions, so there’s plenty for you to sink your teeth into.

  • You can send questions via email to podcasts[at]thesixthaxis.com.
  • You can also tag your questions on Twitter with #tsacast and, provided you’re not on a private account, we’ll see them in our search each week. Finally, as usual, there’s a questions thread in the forum but this week, there’s the added incentive of some PSN credit to get your questioning juices flowing.

This podcast features strong language, jokes in poor taste and adult themes, if you’re offended by that then we recommend that you don’t listen to it at all.

  • As usual, you can grab the MP3 file here (right click to download).

  • Or we’re on iTunes, when iTunes feels like updating. You can also leave us a review and subscribe there, if you want to be particularly lovely.

  1. Have to agree on your thoughts on AC, but feel it’s far too watered down.

  2. i think Claude was named in a San Andreas mission, where you had to rob a few banks with the woman who shoots Claude at the start of GTA III.

    i’ve been wondering about who was in the animus is ACIII Liberation, turns out it’s supposed to be the player.

    but doesn’t the animus allow the user to view the genetic memory of their ancestors, so different people will have different ancestors.

    within the universe of the Assassin’s Creed series, not everybody would be able to access Aveline’s memories.

    i mean how many descendants could Aveline have after 200 odd years?

    i don’t know how i did on the quiz, not awful, but not great, i got four or five on a couple, but most of the it was just one or two.

    i think i beat the guys a couple of times at most.

    though i did get seven on one, but that was my only answer for that question. ^_^

    i saw Looper a few weeks back, great film.
    there are a couple of minor holes, which is pretty much inevitable when you’re dealing with time travel.
    but they’re pretty minor things that don’t really take away from the the film.
    Levitt put in a pretty good performance, as did Willis, playing different versions of the same character.
    on that, the make up job they did on Levvit to make him look more like a younger Willis was pretty good actually.

    it’s amazing how far his career’s come since he was that long haired kid on 3rd Rock.

    incidentally, in checking to see when ACIII Liberation was set, i discovered the japanese version is subtitled, Lady Liberty, i like that. ^_^

    • OH MY GOD. Joseph Gordon Levitt was that kid on 3rd Rock?!

      Never made the association before.

      • yep, that was him.

        have you seen Brick?

        that’s another one starring Levitt that was pretty good.
        sort of film noire with a modern setting and a predominantly young cast.
        the dialogue was like something out of Bogart movie.

        it was a brilliant film, i think that was the one where Levitt started to make his name in films.

        googling it to check some of the details i discovered that it was also written and directed by Rian Johnson, writer/director of Looper.

        i never realised that, two pretty damn good, and quite clever films.

        there’s talk of Johnson handling the Batman reboot as well.
        i’d be interested in seeing what he could do with Batman.

      • nope, never seen that. I think Levitt is generally very good though so I might try to look out for it.

      • Yeah! I can’t believe you didn’t know that, Pete!

        Brick is great but very weird. I think Levitt is one of my favourite younger actors around at the mo. 500 Days of Summer, 50/50, Inception and DKR are all fantastic films. His performance in 50/50 in particular was quite effecting.
