You could hear the complete change in tone I had in my voice as soon as RJ said he’d fired up Destiny on the PS4. And it isn’t like it was his first time, but I think he’d all but given up on the game in my mind until I had heard this. Not that
Push the button. Get a reward. Push button. Get reward. Button. Reward. This is every video game, ever, when you get down to the fundamentals of it. And that’s not a negative. Most games find a way to make that whole operation fun and rewarding
First things first: No show next weekend. Secondly, the video for this episode might seem a little different since we’ve switched studios. This room has windows! So, Gamescom was like a little mini-E3 there for a bit. I still wish they’d stop w
I really want to play Humankind. And I can actually play it right now with my Gamepass subscription. It isn’t on the console versions but it is on the PC versions. But…I can’t play it. Actually, I can, but there’s a risk involved because of Gam
We had something brought up in this episode that I haven’t given thought of in more than 25 years or so. Probably longer. And I probably only thought about it for the span of maybe a day or so when I did all those years ago. Made me wonder abou
If the same thing that’s happened at Activision took place at another company that you support by playing their game, would you continue playing it? I asked that question at the tail end of this episode so there weren’t any responses. It is a q
I can’t remember the last time James was on the show. He may have called in for a segment or two but the last time he was in-studio I think we talked about Prey. The newer one…not the portal one with the awesome intro of the bar getting sucked
It’s a strange place to be in gaming when the highlight of a publisher/developer showcase is a remake of a game from over ten years ago. We shouldn’t even be getting a Dead Space remake since there’s really no reason this series should have eve
Valve can really sneak up on you. Just out of nowhere announce a new device. And more so, a device we’ll see this year. Usually for console reveals or announcements, you’ll get a head’s up that something is coming or something will leak or you’
First up is a note to apologize for the audio issues after the first 30 minutes or so. If you’re listening to the audio from iTunes, it’ll just cut from music to talking, and if you’re watching the video, it’s about 2 minutes of trying to read
Just a head’s up that there will be no show for next weekend. We’ll see you back on Saturday the 10th. Thinking back on this episode, I mentioned why we weren’t talking about Activision and all the money they are giving to ol’ Bobby. I’d said i
We’re a week out from E3 at this point and we barely break the bubble of discussion on it. I’m saving a lot of articles I had for this episode and bringing them over for the next episode just to discuss more of E3. Especially the analytics of i
Happy E3! This past week had new reveals as did this past weekend, and we’ve got more as of today’s posting here and more to come in the days ahead. So there’s still plenty of time to recover and redeem the fact that Ubisoft dropped the ball on
What a completely crazy two weeks it’s been. And most of it we tell you about right at the opening. Most of it having to do with our website being down, then back up, then split between 3 different people and now, finally, all under one roof. I
Last week, when RJ mentioned he wouldn’t be able to be on the show this week, I wasn’t really expecting to do an episode. But, given that next Friday I get my second vaccine shot, and the weekend after is Memorial Day weekend, it potentially me
The first thirty minutes of this show have barely anything to do with gaming at all. It’s just the recap of a VERY chaotic week. The rest of it has to do with Epic and Apple and everything we learned in just the first few days of that court cas
I’ve long since stopped trying to find the magic ratio for game to value. We talked about this with Returnal and it’s price tag. And how, at $60, I was more than entertaining the idea of picking up the game. Until I found out it was $70 and app
Welcome to an episode that almost never was…twice! Some of it’s explained in the show itself. That being the bad weather we were having and you’ll notice this show starts differently than the rest because of all the hecticness that was happenin
At this point I’m pretty sure ANY Pac-Man game will get my attention and will also end up being something that’ll just keep me playing over and over. It’s been doing that since the whole “Championship Edition” versions have been released. And i
Just a quick show note: No new episode next week. We’ll be back live again on the 17th. I don’t want to sound like a shill for Microsoft, but I can’t really find a reason why you should NOT have a Game Pass subscription if you own an Xbox or ev
I don’t consider myself a hoarder, but I can imagine some people would say otherwise about me. I do tend to “hold on” to things a lot longer than most from time to time. Although I’ve recently backed off a bit with that habit. Or, at least, put
I was going to lay out my whole situation here but it’s covered pretty well in the second half of the first hour of the show. Last fall I built a new PC. Almost everything in it was new except for two things: my power supply and my graphics car
Strictly speaking consoles, when you take the big 3 and put all their exclusives together, Nintendo probably leads the pack with the most, both in intellectual property and games featuring that IP. Microsoft SHOULD be in the number 2 spot there
Ever had peer pressure to play a game. Honestly, I never have, but there is some sort of feeling when you see so many people playing or talking about a game and you aren’t in on it. Maybe it’s an odd social pressure. Currently, for me, that pre
Apparently, I really need to play Until Dawn. And from our caller praising it I’m actually looking forward to it. Now to just finish up some more time with Destiny before that. Anthem never really did anything for me (or anybody else it seems,
