ugvm Podcast Episode 10

In the future, you’ll reminisce about where you were and what you were doing on the day the great ugvm podcast episode 10 came out. Well, you might. Trauma does things to your head, mang.

In this historically accurate episode, deKay plays a game aimed at eight year olds, Choobs plays a number of seemingly identical games, Luffer plays virtually no games at all, and Zo plays a God of War game which both isn’t God of War but is God of War. Confused? We were never confused.

We chat about the Battlefield V: There’s A Woman In It trailer, everyone’s favourite vapourware the ZX Vega+ (again, sorry), the new dockless Switch, Biohazard/Resident Evil 7 coming to the Switch sort of, Rainway, the mystery of the missing PS4 Pros, the NES Classic (and new Famicom Classic), and all these games:

  • Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate Kiss Kiss
  • No Man’s Sky
  • Star Trek: Bridge Crew
  • Fairune Collection
  • Yakuza 5
  • Detective Pikachu
  • God of War
  • Batman: The Enemy Within

  • Judgement: Apocalypse Survival Simulator
  • Yorkshire Gubbins

  • Fire Emblem Warriors
  • Hyrule Warriors

And some listener questions, stuff about E3, and general waffle. Mmm, waffles.

Hey kids! Have you got two whole hours of your life you don’t want back? Or a two hour bus journey next to an old lady telling you about her piles and you need to drown her out? Well have we got a podcast for you.

In this episode, deKay uses his imagination and fights a bear, Zo has played all of the games, some of which while stripped to the waist, Kendrick instructs everyone to say “David Cage” in an East London accent, and Neil rams some angry Australians with silly names off the road. Pretty standard stuff, really.
