This week on Initiative Check, we talk about Saints Row IV, League of Legends, Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, and Rome Total War 2. We discuss the fact that Nick and Meg never really got into Pokemon, and James tries and fails to remember a handheld game that you all simply have to play. (It’s called Bruisers, by the way). James also reviews the terrific World Basketball Manager 2010.

There’s also a quiz, and next week, somebody is going to have to play an awful game and tell us about it.

As always, you can find us on Twitter at @Iyagovos, and email in at
