The Digest, our monthly video review series that gives you two critics for the price of one, makes its long-awaited return today! And I apologize for the hiatus. Last month, I was busy putting together The Seeds, and then this month, we had to postpone the usual taping on account of Hurricane Sandy. But we’re back, and with one of my favorite installments yet.
If you’re a regular reader of the site, you already know that I have some bones to pick with Assassin’s Creed III. My counterpart over at Kotaku, however—editor-in-chief Stephen Totilo—gave the game a nice big hug. I invited him to come on The Digest so we could talk it out, and he was gracious enough to accept. We went back and forth for about half an hour; it was tough to cut this one down to The Digest’s usual length. I think you’ll enjoy the counterpoint Stephen provides.
Because I was feeling in an autumnal mood, all of this week’s snacks are pumpkin-flavored treats. We started off with pumpkin muffins. You see these popping up in bakeries around this time of year, but I always question whether anyone enjoys these things, or whether we eat them out of obligation. In the case of these muffins, the latter definitely applies.
