This week on the podcast we bemoan the fact that there haven’t been a whole lot of excellent games for a full week (this was recorded before Sunday’s launch of the excellent FPS Brothers in Arms 2). We also talk about our new mobile and iPhone reviews published on Gamespot, and chat with Kepa from RocketCat Games about Hook Champ and what they’re working on next. Click ahead for shownotes and links!

Gamezebo reports that Ouya is on the brink of going down in a sea of debt unless it can find a buyer soon. The micro game console had a hugely successful Kickstarter run in 2013, but it hasn’t managed to turn into a commercially viable product, it seems. From the article:
Part of its failure to do so can be attributed to the larger inability of microconsoles to catch on. While enough people seemed to like the idea of versatile, relatively inexpensive boxes to have them successfully crowdfunded, none have done much of anything to even hint at any changes to the larger gaming status quo.
Touch Arcade’s Eli Hodapp went behind the scenes at a WWE pay-per-view and got to hang out with wrestler Sheamus as he played WWE Immortals. You can watch the video above and check out the full article here.
On the topic of Sheamus’s look though, I couldn’t help but ask how he feels about the whole “You Look Stupid” chant that’s going around now with his new heel turn. Turns out, he loves it, as in the world or professional wrestling you always want people talking about you- There’s nothing worse than a dead crowd. He mentioned all the memes people have made, and all the other lengths folks on the internet have gone to, is all just fueling him as a wrestler. It makes a lot of sense, as love him or hate him, he’s got the whole audience involved.
