Far Cry 4/Smash Bros. Wii U: Thumbstick Athletes Podcast Episode 175

Quite a bit better for the game releases this past week.  You can only go up from a week that saw the disastrous launches of the new Assassin's Creed and the Master Chief Collection, right?  In Far Cry 4, you get a familiar formula in a game that gives you the tools to have your own fun.  Though it's not drastically different mechanically from Far Cry 3, why mess too much with something that works so well?  In Smash Bros. for Wii U, you get a long awaited entry in a beloved franchise.  Nintendo spent extra time on Smash, making sure everything was super polished and balanced and it really shows.  You also get to hear Eric's thoughts on Smash, who has been an outspoken critic of the series' past entries.
