This week's Super Joystiq Podcast would totally win the Game of Thrones-- careful, it's ruthless.**

Telltale is back, again, with an all-new series, Game of Thrones. Susan played through the first episode, and it sounds Game of Thrones-y-- in a good way. Jess and Danny talk indie docu-platformer Never Alone, and then it's back to other big releases that are still occupying our time, including Sunset Overdrive and Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Bayonetta 2 proved to be one of the best games of the year so far, and there is plenty more to say about it. This week, Ludwig, Susan, Anthony, and Earnest talk the sexuality of Bayonetta, and why The Evil Within isn't as successful as we would have hoped. Ludwig also checks in with stories of his time with Far Cry 4-- and surprise, surprise, it sounds amazing. Susan touches on The Devil's Attorney, and the whole big show closes on a showstopper, the board game Clue.

Destiny makes bold claims right in the title. Bungie named its game after inevitability! While only time will tell if the studio's bold experiment in blending its signature shooter fundamentals with a decade of MMO evolution has produced a classic, Destiny is certainly unavoidable in the gaming world this week. After pouring hours into the game since the servers went live on Monday morning, the Joystiq team is ready to reflect on the game's first days. How does Destiny feel on last gen consoles? What's it like to review a game like this? Are there any hiccups in service? We'll cover it all.

The staff will host a Google Hangout starting at 2:30PM EST. Want to chat with the crew? Follow along on Google Plus, right here in this post, or at Joystiq.com/Twitch.

Following the roundtable, Joystiq's Jess Conditt will be streaming the Xbox One version of Destiny.

Also, if you'd like to get your hands on an absolutely free copy of Destiny, we're giving some of those away right now!
