Podcast #7: A Bad Man Goes To War

What?

Another episode? So soon?

YES! E3’s over for another year, but there has certainly been a few big reveals for gamers in the past week. The biggest of which was the unveiling of A virtual Disneyland game on Kinect… No, I’m kidding.

But seriously though: The Wii-U.

The new Nintendo game-changer is put under the microscope and given a good going over by the guys, to judge whether we think it’ll be, well, ANY GOOD! The choice of name, the dinner plate they call a controller, and the stupidity of Nintendo are all discussed.

After the verbal assault on Nintendo, we move on to talk about Microsoft’s conference, and how almost EVERY game they demoed or announced was for the Kinect. Some looking quite good, some just downright laughable (See: Disneyland game), the conference was hit and miss. We babble on about how much we love Halo games, after the announcement of both Halo 4 and Halo: CE Anniversary Edition. Sony’s next generation portable,
the PSVita, gets a look in as well.

This extra long podcast is rounded off nicely by taking a trip down memory lane, mentioning the great games of yester-year, with special attention to the games of Rare. So listen in, folks! I’m sure there’s something for everyone in this ‘cast (Unless you’re a Nintendo Fanboy), and be sure to tune in next time, which might be sooner than you think!

Podcast #6 Nintendo gives birth…. again

“A-Ha!” I hear you say��� the exclamation that can only mean one thing: your favourite thrice-yearly video gaming podcast has returned! That’s not even once a season, so you must feel quite the privileged little being to have our earth-shattering presence in your life again.

So what’s re-united our sorry souls this time? Not just E3. Oh No. There’s a historic ripple on its way tomorrow – a new console! Nintendo are about to unveil their next backwards-compatible-backward-thinking-nostalgia-milk-a-thon-a-what-the-hell-is-the-controller-gonna-be-like-this-time wonder machine.

So, listen in, and be quick about it, because this ‘cast will be relevant for a limited time only. We muse like wild and abandoning philosophers over all the rumours surrounding Nintendo’s new baby. We debate about the place of the Wii in the heart of video-gaming history and conclude, perhaps a little too frankly, that it may have stopped beating altogether.

We also discuss the games we’re totally gazonked (yes, I believe that is a brand new word) about at this years E3 conference including Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Uncharted 3, Mass Effect 3, Skyward Sword and Sonic Generations…

Too many sequels? Don’t worry we noticed and unlike other soulless reviewers, we care enough to provide the most insightful critique on the video-gaming industry this side of tatoonie.
