Gamescom was HUGE this year. New Silent Hill, Romero is still full of surprises, Michel Ancel and Q-Games unveil completely incomprehensible new IP’s, murder with rollercoasters, Quantum Break and so much more! So much more in fact that the episode is EXTRA VALUE LENGTH!
It’s only a few days until E3 and how will we pass the time? The boys are still karting with Mario while Simone gets her goat on. James gets into Dragon’s Crown on Vita and plays with some dogs and cats on his 3DS while everyone gets into this week’s fantastic Cheapskate’s Game Club with Card Hunter.
No Cheapskate’s Game Club next week as E3 will consume us all
Kirby sucks a glorious amount in this most wondrous of episodes. Sadness has returned and it’s as confusing as ever. While we’re talking about confusing things how about PadDefender? Is it like a Frog Fractions thing? Is life as we know it just an elaborate Frog Fractions publicity stunt? Bugs. We’re all very confused. Icarus Proudbottom saves the day though and we get to tap a chicken.
Paul is back from the wilderness after defeating all of the nature and he is mad as hell! Also he played the smooth synthetic tones of FRACT OSC while Simone got down and dirty with Portal 2 Thinking with Time Machine Mod and James gets it on with Hitman Go. Not to mention that the landfill of ET cartridges has finally been uncovered, Mario Golf World Tour, Snoop Dogg, The Great Ace Attorney and much more including another great week of crowd funding projects.
Welcome to Eight and a Half Bit 101. In today’s lesson we will cover James going on about Elder Scrolls Online for some reason, Paul’s history with the Mercenary Kings and Ben’s well documented obsession with Kinect Sports Rivals. We’ve got demos for Tex Murphy: Tesla Effect and Chaos Reborn plus SOE announces a DayZ competitor and we would be amis if we did not also mention the amazing underwater exploration in Subnautica, Smash Bros news, a new Borderlands and a partridge in a pear tree!
100 episodes in and we’ve decided to celebrate by talking about video games! What a treat! We get into some Goat Simulator, Monument Valley, the Amazon Fire TV, April Fool’s Day, a bunch of other stuff and maybe some cake? (Spoiler: There is no cake involved)
