Episode 059 - WTFosoft

Microsoft did some things. Namely going nuclear on the Xbone’s controversial DRM policies. Some people are happy, some people are confused and Ben people are sad about it. But screw that because Paul got an OUYA!

Episode 058 - The desolation of E3

PS4! Wii-U! XBone! OUYA! Sifteo Cubes! All the big players were in attendance in what was perhaps the most controversial E3 of all time.  Emotions are high and there’s a bit of bullshit to cut through but we try not to get too bogged down in that and instead focus on what really matters... the length of Bayonetta’s new hair. IT’S SO SPUNKY!

Episode 057 - Sneaky Snake Vs Big XBone

There’s a new Solid Snake or maybe there isn’t. Frankly we don’t know what to believe anymore. We know that the Xbone continues to be the most controversial console announcement in memory, Rogue Legacy is awesome, Deus Ex: The Fall is upsetting and zombie hip hop cyborg ninjas are a good thing. There are only a few days until E3 kids so get your adult diapers ready.

Episode 056 - Kickstart this! ...and that and all of these ones

James gets his Fire Emblem on, Paul plays The Swapper and Ben needs to talk more.  There is the amazing Crypt of the NecroDancer to chat about, PS4 remote play, American McGee’s new projects and more crowd funding than you can point a stick at!  That is of course assuming you can’t point at more than 10 things with a stick.  This included a new project from Double Fine, a successor to The Neverhood and a gorgeous trip back to the 1930’s.

Listen to us talk.
