In their second episode, the VGH crew chat about the games they’re looking forward to in 2011. Plus, D.J. probably doesn’t have world exclusive news about the next Soulcalibur. Addictive substances and legendary 80’s frontmen both somehow play a part. Lastly, the 3DS: Will it print money? Tune in to find out!

D.J.: I mentioned that Valve bringing Steam to the PS3 would be the first time there’s been true crossplatform play between consoles and PC. Microsoft actually accomplished this earlier with their Games for Windows Live initiative, allowing Xbox 360 owners to play against PC gamers in games like Shadowrun, Universe at War, and Lost Planet: Colonies. Portal 2 will still be a milestone, however, since it will be the first time there’s been crossplatform support offered for a game people actually want to play.
