4 in February Draft: Thumbstick Athletes Podcast Episode 184

The shortened month of February is the perfect time to go back and hit your gaming backlog, or pile of shame as it's also known.  For the third year now, the Thumbstick Athletes Podcast has taken part in 4 in February...an event meant to help us gamers tame our ever-growing lists of games we'll get to someday.  Starting last year, we decided to pick each other's games and leave one of the games up to a fan vote which you can find below or at a number of other links we've floated around on the web.  Maybe we'll all beat our games this year!  We also give our first impressions of this year's first big release, Dying Light.

Episode 94: Metro 2033

​For the first time in our 94 episode history there's just two of us for a whole show.  There may have been a hangover or extra episode somewhere with just two, but it's a first for the main episodes.  Fortunately, Dan and Corey were able to put out a full two hour episode on Metro 2033, whose sequel Metro: Last Light is coming out next week.  Metro 2033 is one of those games that all the Athletes kind of overlooked when it came out (before the podcast of course.)  Dan even confused it for another title.  So listen in and find out what Corey and Dan think of the cult hit from 4A Games.  Show notes and flash player after the jump:
