Episode 101 – Wonderful Worlds to Explore (You can include ESO if you want)

But you shouldn't

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!

Episode 95 – Nukem? I Hardly Knew ‘Em!

He's our hero!

What is going on with 3DRealms? I feel like I’m going crazy here! Paul gets chilled out with Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Ben is Banished and James plays some more MMOs or something (more ESO and FFIVX).  Throw in some news attack and crowd funding and some epic disappointment in the general reaction to Lords of Shadow 2 and you’ve got a podcast. This one!

James gets his MMO on with Final Fantasy XIV, Paul gets his Action on with Strider and Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 while Ben actually gets some F2P on with Loadout. Also included is The Order 1886, Thief, the end of Irrational Games, lots of news and some solid crowdfunding.

Episode 91 – The Old Man of the Sea

Nobody suspects a thing

You put your left foot in, you put your left foot out. You put your front left foot in, you put your front left foot out. You put your back right foot in, you put your back right foot out. You do the Octopokey and you turn around. That’s what it’s somewhat about.

We talk Octodad: The Dadliest Catch, Pyro Jump, Nintendo’s new strategy, XBone rumours and much more in today’s episode which also includes an overly aggressive News Attack.
