Episode 235: The One That Looks Forward to 2017

AKA: The One with the Random 8-bit Guy

It's our first show of the year and have a lot of catch up to do. As usual Tycko played a ton of games but we limit what he's allowed to talk about. Otherwise we'd be here all day...

As we always do, this being the first show of the year, we take some time to review what's coming out this year and what games we're most looking forward to. Additionally, and since it just happened on Thursday night, we also dive into our thoughts on the new Nintendo Switch information that was presented during the Nintendo Press Conference.

This week's Lost Treasure is, quite coincidentally, 2007's Switchball (no relation to the Nintendo Switch). Lost Treasures is written and narrated by Syd Bolton (www.pcmuseum.ca) with gameplay by Fred Rojas (www.gaminghistory101.com).

Episode 231: The One with All the Schick

It takes dedication for Jeff to show up to the show after the week he had. Sleepy eyes and all, he manages to stay awake for it all. He even got the play some games this week too! Titanfall 2 and Final Fantasy XV were discussed this week and Sean shares some of his adventures in Watch Dogs 2. As always, Tycko pressed more buttons and tells us all about Ubisoft's new Steep, Jonothan Blow's The Witness, and the Warmastered Edition of Darksiders.

The Game Awards happened this week and, while Jeff was unable to watch, Sean and Tycko have some very poignant thoughts on the show. In other news, Ubisoft announces all their VR titles feature cross-platform play, EA takes a break from Battlefield to concentrate on Star Wars Battlefront, and all the PS Plus games for December.

Finally. FINALLY! We have gameplay footage for Mass Effect Andromeda! Jeff wakes up just in time to discuss his thoughts on that.

Episode 230: The One with Stolen Black Friday

Here in Canada we decided that Boxing Day (the day after Christmas) wasn't enough so we stole Black Friday from the US. Now we get two days to get stuff on massive sales. With this week giving us big savings on many games, we all indulged and picked up a few games we've been waiting for. Our games discussion continues with more Watch Dogs 2, Overwatch, and Dishonored 2. As always Tycko pressed more buttons and brings us Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection, more Lego Dimensions packs, Livelock, and Headlander.

In the news this week, we discuss the categories for The Game Awards and what we hope the show is and isn't this year. News from Ubisoft including free DLC plans and a new direction for gaming in general. Todd Howard talks about the Nintendo Switch, and all the games for Games with Gold in December.

Our Lost Treasure this week is Vexx from 2003. Lost Treasures is written and narrated by Syd Bolton (pcmuseum.ca) with gameplay captured by Fred Rojas (gaminghistory101.com).

Episode 229: The One with The Station

We have another packed show for you this week with something we haven't had in a very long time...and interview with a developer. First, we discuss our latest gaming adventures in Dishonored 2, Watch Dogs 2, Mekazoo, more Robinson: The Journey, and a return to Mass Effect 3.

We are thrilled to welcome to the show, Kevin Harwood, Creative Director of The Station (www.thestationgame.com), now on Kickstarter (http://kck.st/2fG845d). Watch the interview, then check out the Kickstarter and we're sure you're going to want to back them too!

In the news, the list of awards for the annual Video Game Awards has been revealed. We will discuss them in more detail next week. Finally, we'd be remiss if we didn't acknowledge the 15th Year Anniversary of Xbox. To celebrate we each share when and why we first bought an Xbox and quickly realize how much the Xbox truly changed our lives.

Our Lost Treasure this week is Second Sight, the 2004 game for PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube. Lost Treasures is written and narrated by Syd Bolton (pcmuseum.ca) with gameplay captured by Fred Rojas (gaminghistory101.com).

Episode 228: The One That’s Supah!

Despite other events in the world, we were able to enjoy so many new games this week. We all played Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, a game that some of us on this show feel could have made its way without the Call of Duty name. Fresh off the Pre-order early play, Tycko dove into Dishonored 2, Sean and Jeff dove into Eagle Flight on PSVR and adventured on an alien planet in Robinson: The Journey.

In the news, we discuss all the Mass Effect information we've received this week including the inclusion of Mass Effect 2 and 3 coming to Backward Compatibility. With N7 Day, we also received much more information about Mass Effect Andromeda and we cover what we know about the game so far.

Our Lost Treasures this week is Disney Guilty Party, a party game for fans of games such as Clue. Lost Treasures is written an narrated by Syd Bolton (pcmuseum.ca) with gameplay captured by Fred Rojas (gaminghistory101.com).

Episode 227: The One Before Extra Life

Sean finally gets through the last of his VR game reviews, this week with 3 VR games from Oasis Games, Ace Banana, Pixel Gear, and Weeping Doll.  Our cover image this week comes from Skyrim: Special Edition, of which both Sean and Tycko have been happy to jump back into on the Xbox One.  We talk about what we like about it and what really doesn't live up to our expectations.

In the news this week we say goodbye to the Wii U.  Or do we?  Driveclub rides way into the sunset, Mass Effect Andromeda begins enlisting, and nearly 40 games get the 4K upgrade just in time for the PS4 Pro release.  Are these games worth playing in 4K? Do we need all these games upgraded and what does this mean for those of us who don't buy the new console?

If you can help Sean raise funds for his Extra Life campaign, visit http://bit.ly/ExtraSean and you could win a game.

Episode 226: The One with the Cult Classics

So many games so little time to talk about them. If only we could go longer than an hour....but not this week!  Jeff and Sean are still fully ensconced in their Virtual Reality worlds.  On the docket this week are games such as Sports Bar VR, Tethered, Loading Human Chapter 1, The Brookhaven Experiment, and probably the best VR game in the release lineup, Batman: Arkham VR.

In non VR gaming this week, we cover the Destiny Halloween event, Battlefield 1, and Reus.

In the news there is so much we don't know about the Nintendo Switch, according to Nintendo, and we won't know more until January. The November free games have been announced for both Xbox Games with Gold and PlayStation Plus with one of them presenting a clearly better package than the other.

Our Lost Treasure this week, just in time for Halloween, is Deadly Premonition, released in 2010 for the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.  Lost Treasures is written and narrated by Syd Bolton with gameplay captured by Fred Rojas at gaminghistory101.com.
