Episode 262: The One with Just the Two of Us

It's just Sean and Tycko this week as Jeff takes the month of August off. We've got new game reviews for you for VR games Archangel and Dino Frontier. We also finally get to review one of our most anticipated games from PAX East, Shadow Tactics. Will it live up to our expectations? We let you know. We also discuss Elder Scrolls Legends now that it's hit iOS.

In the news we discuss such topics as micro-transactions in single player games, eSports as an Olympic Medal Event, Hellblade's unique death mechanic, and the improvements made to the year old game, No Man's Sky.

Lost Treasures returns this week with "King of Chicago", release in 1987 on the Amiga and other platforms. Lost Treasures is written and narrated by Syd Bolton, owner of Canada's largest video game collection.

Episode 261: The One with Strange VR

We've got another great show for you this week with some more new games showing up. Jeff realizes how much he sucks at Battlefield 1, visits The Farm in Destiny 2 Beta, and battles the undead in Fortnite. Sean takes a trip into mythology in the PSVR game, Theseus, and Tycko tries his hand at card battles with Fable Fortune.

In the news this week we discuss the change to Destiny 2 that Bungie made even before the Beta began; Overwatch League reveals player salaries (how can we get on a team?? I want to be paid to play Overwatch! ~Sean); and Nintendo Switch sales are soaring. Looks like Jeff might have to eat his words next year as Nintendo is fast approaching their target of 13 million units sold in a year.

Finally, we discuss the games that will be made available in August with PS Plus and Xbox Games with Gold as well as a remastered version of the Sega CD classic, Night Trap, coming to PS4.

Episode 257: The One With Atari’s Comeback?

Something incredible unprecedented happened this week and you may not believe it when you hear it. We'll give you a hint: it has to do with Tycko and how many games he played this week. As mentioned last week, Jeff finally picked up Horizon Zero Dawn and gives us his thoughts on Sean's favourite game of forever. Finally, Sean reviews the amazing, yet unsettling game, The Town of Light.

In the news this week, we discuss some new VR technology that's being developed and some possible games being remade for VR. Sony takes a page from JackBox and brings party games to your phone with PlayLink while Firaxis takes a page from Shadow of Mordor and brings the Nemesis system to their next XCOM 2 expansion.
