28: Reflecting and Reminiscing

There’s a change from the norm this episode as deKay has disappeared. We’ve looked everywhere with no success. He’ll probably turn up again at some point.

This episode, Zo, Luffer, Toby and Kendrick discuss the existence of PlayStation 5, Activision siding with the Chinese, and how to become a NASCAR champion without getting in a car. We also played some games, such as:

  • FIFA 20
  • Skyrim VR
  • Dark Souls Remastered
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • iRacing
  • The Orville
  • Pilgrims
  • What the Golf?

We also answer the biggest questions with the Truth.

27: Do You Have Fully Simulated Hip Movement

If this is your first episode, we’re so very, very sorry to waste your time. If you’re a regular listener, well, you do this to yourself.

This episode, deKay, Toby and Kendrick chat about recent gaming news including Yakuza 7, Apple Arcade, Minecraft Earth, Super Nintendo World and the not at all eyebrowraisingly named Ring Fit Adventure. And these games:

  • Judgment
  • Shenmue II
  • Astral Chain
  • River City Girls
  • Dead Cells
  • Everything

And then we answer some listener questions with The Best Answers.

Oh, and the River City Girls soundtrack is by Megan McDuffie.

26: Where the Grass is Green and the Girls Are Pretty

Since it’s the summer (apparently) and everyone is on holiday, we’re a bit short staffed this episode.

Join deKay, Kendrick, and some approximation of Zo as they talk about Gamescom, the Mega Drive Mini, Death Stranding, Humankind, Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase, the Yakuza remasters news, an Avatar theme park ride (for some reason), and these games:

  • The Rainsdowne Players
  • PictoQuest: The Cursed Grids
  • Burnout Paradise Remastered
  • Atari Flashback Classics
  • Judgment

Plus the usual listener questions. As in, both usual because we usually do it, and usual because it’s mainly the usual listeners. They’re good questions though!

25: Monumental Waste of Bandwidth

In a post E3 world, worthwhile news is hard to come by. Thank $deity that the Switch Lite was announced this week then, eh?

On this episode, deKay, Kendrick and Zo converse for your pleasure about Nintendo’s new console, some other tidbits of news, and actually sort of do some actual video game journalism with reports on both Amazon and Antstream. On top of that, there’s waffle on these precious, precious games:

  • Judgment
  • Phantasy Star Online
  • Phantasy Star Portable 2
  • Forza Horizon 4
  • Assassin’s Creed Origins
  • Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night

Plus some listener questions. What more could you want?

24: E3 2019 and Other Numbers

Seems that E3 thing came round again, so we thought we’d better tell you our picks of the games shown there. Join deKay, Niaz, Kendrick and Choobs as they completely ignore half the titles on display this year, and get excited about games we may never hear about ever again. It is, after all, E3.

In a change from our normal format, we’ve binned everything else from the podcast. It’s E3 E3 E3 all the way. You’re welcome.
