Microsoft drops some future bombs (the good type of bombs) at this week’s Gamescom. Paul gets into more Nindies (Special note go download them now) and James has a Need for Speed that’s several years old. Also tune in for a super special announcement regarding the future of Eight and a Half Bit.
Flappy Bird took the world by storm… and now it’s gone. Loadout is still here though with flappy bits everywhere! As is Episode 2 of The Wolf Among Us. There’s a new take on Sonic to speculate about along with a new Amnesia fortnight and Metal Gear: Ground Zeroes. Please don’t forget about the amazing kickstarters though! DO IT FOR OUR FUTURE!
Paul plays all the games (Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, The Wolf Among Us, Luigi’s Mansion 2, Broken Sword 5, Shadow Warrior, SteamWorld Dig), James plays some of those games plus Galactic Starfighter and Ben finally plays an XBone game on his Xbone!
To celebrate the release of the Xbox One we let Ben host the show so he can talk about his new purchase. Paul plays Tearaway and stick it to the Man while James spends his time with the new Zelda on the 3DS.
Ben plays his favourite game, anticipation after pre-ordering an XBone, Paul gets really into Forced and James plays some kinda real life game. Urgh how dreadful. Harmonix has an awesome looking new game in Thumper, we learn our morals from a robot in Doki Doki Universe and Nintendo shows us why we can’t have nice things. A big bunch of awesome looking kickstarters including one Paul almost forgets to discuss because he’s an idiot. All that and more!
Crowd Funding Picks
Ben: Bullet Bros
James: Dungeon Dyslexia
Special “How the fuck did I forget to talk about it?!” award: Stasis
What a sexy episode we have for you all today. James has been getting it on with Contraption Maker and Divekick while Paul has his way with Mount Your Friends. Ben gets sick of sex jokes. There are some fantastic crowd funding projects we chat about the 2DS and games that none of us will ever get to play.
There is so much to talk about this week we must be as efficient as possible! GamesCon went down with Sony and Microsoft going all out in the lead up to their new console reveals. We’ve got games, we’ve got games plus we’ve even got some games. A Chivalry expansion, indie games galore and even ToonTown gets thrown in for good measure. In my haste I even missed out on Rime, my favourite reveal of the week. Oh well. Next week I’ll talk about it so much you’ll hate me.
