RAD episode:Infamous:Second son



Welcome back to RAD!

In this episode we are taking a trip to the pacific northwest with Delsin Rowe in INFAMOUS:Second son for the PS4. Birdman joins the Akomish tribe to help them recover from an attack of anti conduit forces known as the D.U.P. and their leader, Brooke Augustine. The story picks up 7 years after Cole’s battle with the beast and how was the world adjusted to having conduits among them and what brings them to the streets of Seattle.
Birdman looks at both the good and evil sides and even gives you a run down on the DLC of Cole’s legacy and the augmented reality game “Paper trail”
Does this PS4 exclusive have what it takes to be a worthy follow up to the Infamous series?
Does this game have conduit control of awesome or suckage?
Well you be the judge!

RAD episode:Dungeons and Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara


It’s the last RAD of 2013!
Birdman has decided he wanted to return to his nerdy roots for this particular RAD and bringing you something that made him a super nerd with Dungeons and Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara!
This past summer Capcom brought us an unexpected gem of an action RPG experience that was in arcades in the mid 90′s. You are out to save the Kingdom from an evil ancient lich and in the sequel a powerful sorcerers. We have our fighters,magic users,thieves and a dwarf and are ready to stand up against the forces of evil.
Is this downloadable double bill a natural 20 or is it a critical failure?

RAD episode: Dead Rising 3


Welcome to Los Perdidos!

It’s Birdman’s first review on XBox one and we’re kicking it off with blood and mayhem with DEAD RISING 3.It’s been 10 years since the outbreak in Fortune City and zombies are just an accepted way of life in the US and then, it starts over again with a zombie outbreak!
Our new hero, Nick has to find a way out of the city with his friends before the entire city is bombed into one giant crater. Nick also has to solve the many mysteries of the outbreak and how does all this tie into Fortune city and Willamette.
Is this Xbox one exclusive worth ponying up the dough for or shall we leave it to rot with the rest of the zombie games?

RAD episode: Assassin’s creed 4:Black flag LE


PREPARE TO BE BOARDED LADS!

Birdman has joined the high seas with Captain Edward Kenway in Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag for the Xbox 360. The ages old war for control has come to the Caribbean and it’s residents with a tale of betrayal,gold and a relic which could change the balance of power. The beautiful tropical sand will become stained with blood as you strike from hidden places or hang people with your rope darts and other instruments of murder.
Does this latest Assassin’s creed offer us something new or does it sink like a ship besieged by pirates?

BTW, does anyone have a Gamestop Xbox 360 code they don’t want? Drop me a line!

RAD episode: Teenage mutant ninja turtles


This is the second date I’ve had with the Turtles. How does this one turn out?

Birdman returns to RAD and this time he’s got nunchuks and all sorts of other ninja weapons to challenge the video game adaption of Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. New York finds itself under the threat of the Foot clan, Kraang robots, and a mutagen bomb, and it has fallen to our heroes in a half shell to stop them!

It’s the second turtles game in as many months, but how does fare against the disappointment that was Out of the Shadows?
Boo or Booyakasha?
You be the judge!
