Episode 217: The One with the Intern’s Game

As usual Tycko pressed more buttons and played more games.  Games such as Uno and Friends, Song of the Deep, Kingdom: New Lands, and even Prominence Poker.  Well, okay, the poker game was free so that's a button worth pressing.

More No Man's Sky was played this week as well and Sean has figured out what keeps him going in this game.  The game keeps revealing more things and he tells us what that is.

In the news, we discuss, of course, No Man's Sky, the PS4 4.00 UI changes, how to stream Steam games to your Xbox One, and the end of the Console Generation?  Is it possible? Will it actually happen?  We have out doubts. Watch to find out why.

Our Lost Treasure this week is Spec Ops: The Line from 2012.  Lost Treasures is written and narrated by Syd Bolton with gameplay captured by Fred Rojas of gaminghistory101.com.

Episode 216: The One With No Man’s Sky

It was a very big week in gaming as the most anticipated game of the year finally released to PS4 consoles everywhere.  Of course we're talking about No Man's Sky.  And boy do we ever talk about this game.  While we may have had other things planned for tonight's show, this game is just so big that we sort of went on about it for a long time.

We discuss what is good about No Man's Sky, what we like, and some of our personal experiences.  The game isn't all great though and we do illuminate some of the elements in the game that Hello Games didn't quite get right in our opinion.  It's the good, the bad, and the ugly of No Man's Sky, and all the news related thereof.

Other games discussed on this episode include Batman: The Telltale Series, Quatros Origins, #KILLALLZOMBIES, Ben-Hur, and Rebel Galaxy.

Our Lost Treasure this episode is an Xbox 360 Arcade game called Weapon of Choice from Mommy's Best Games.  Lost Treasures is written and narrated by Syd Bolton with gameplay captured by Fred Rojas at gaminghistory101.com.

In the news we discuss our thoughts on whether or not e-Sports belong in the Olympics, and Tim Sweeney things Microsoft is going to break Steam.  We also discuss some more Nintendo NX news, including their target audience.

Episode 213: The One That GOes

Once again, we have many games to talk about this week.  Jeff takes a stroll down RPG lane with the recently released Sword Coast Legends and Neverwinter on PS4.  This lead him to jumping back into Warframe to discover how well the game has been improved over the past few years.

Tycko's games include Tumblestone and The Solus Project for Xbox One as well as a newly released game for Kinect, of all things, called FRU.  It's a very unique take on using Kinect.

We all also played the Pokémon GO craze and Sean gives his reasons why and how the game become something special for him.

In the news, Ubisoft's CEO has seen the Nintendo NX, but is it what we expect?  Xbox One S releases soon, but you'll have to wait for the smaller hard disc sizes and cheaper prices. Star Wars Battlefront adds single player offline modes.  A Dutch company claims that No Man's Sky might be using their patented formulas.

Our Lost Treasure this week is Montezuma's Revenge for Commodore 64.

Episode 212: The One That Changes It Up

Never afraid to change things up and that's just what we do this week.  With all the news being pretty much nothing but Pokemon GO, we decide instead to talk about a lot of games that we played this week.

We discuss Lego Dimensions, Read Dead Redemption's Undead Nightmare, Star Wars Battlefront, Hawken, and Diablo III.  New games discussed include the baffling story of Inside, Kerbal Space Program on PS4, and the unfortunate twin stick ant shooter, MilitAnt.

Our lost Treasure this week is The Mark of Kri from 2002 on the PS2.  Written and Narrated by Syd Bolton, with video captures by Fred Rojas at gaminghistory101.com.

Then, how can we ignore the absolute craze that is Pokemon GO. It may be the only thing in the news these days, so it's pretty much the only news we talk about. It's crazy, that's all it is!
