As a long-time NOT Fallout player, I was curious about this new one in a morbid kind of way after some of the interesting reactions from fans upon the game’s announcement. And more so as Bethesda seemed to not know how to market this game because as more info came out, it seemed to be more of a mess. Continue reading Fallout 76: A Rolling Review→
Welcome to the Red Dead Redemption podcast!
Basically, yeah. While all our listeners are playing Rockstar’s latest classic in the making, we are hiding out in CU towers, like a pair of old fogeys, moaning that we don’t have time to play games!
This week, your hosts John Miller and Andrew Brooker are chatting about RDR2 and all the nonsense that’s surrounded the Developers over the last couple of weeks. We also chat about Playstation letting you change names and the caveats it comes with.
In What We’ve Been Playing, plenty of Call of Duty talk, an impromptu chat about Forza Horizon and Q.U.B.E.
There’s also an insane amount of tangents, left turns and frankly ludicrous chats this week as being grown-ups seems to have gotten the better of the lads and they just let it all out here. It wouldn’t be Character Unlock if we didnt.
Was there ever any other game for us to talk about?
It’s been teased and delayed and teased some more for more thsan two years and Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man is finally here.
But this is too big a job for just two men to take on. So our regular hosts John Miller and Andrew Brooker have dragged in regular guest and all round beautiful man Lee Loveridge to tackle the webslinger’s latest outing.
Along the way there’s more THQ chat, some Netflix Witcher gossip and even chat about the God of War BOOK!!
But recovered or not, it’s time to get into another episode and after a bit of a chat about our highs and lows of the gaming industry’s five day advert for itself, hosts John Miller and Andrew Brooker have finally had time and energy to get into a load of games.
With the pair both firmly sat in a bit of a funk, sales and back logs provided plenty for them to sink their teeth into. Revisiting Destiny 2 and getting his hands on Marvel Ultimate Alliance seemed to give John the kick up the ass he needed. While Assassins Creed: Origins and Life is Strange: Before the Storm were perfectly suited games to get Brooker’s juices flowing.
A week of gaming seems to be just what the doctor ordered for both of our hosts. Listen in to hear about these and a load more.
Both suffering with hayfever after the insane two day summer the UK had this week, hosts John Miller and Andrew Brooker play through the pain to bring you another jam-packed episode.
And speaking of fortnights, or fortnite, its time to talk about Battle Royale.
With the news that both Call of Duty and Battlefield are working on shoe-horning the massive multiplayer mode in to the latest iterations of their games, the lads discuss whether or not it’s a good idea and who will come out on top in this most inevitable battle of the titans.
And speaking of titans.
Brooker gets to grips with the latest installment of the God of War franchise. is it good? is it worth spending money on? Is it the kind of game where you can harass your mate becuase he needs to buy a PS4 to play it on? Listen in and find out.
John fights back with a chat about the Nintendo Switch edition of Football Manager and tries to explain to Brooker how it gets used in real life!
The pair end with a (spoiler free) discussion on Far Cry 5 now the pair have finished Ubisoft’s latest open world ubi-thon.
It’s been a couple of weeks, and we’re back to a normal schedule. For now.
This week, hosts John Miller and Andrew Brooker talk about GTAV – the game that has officially become the worlds most profitable entertianment product – and try and dissect how and why that happened. Including some terrible maths.
They boys then take a butcher’s at the revelation that Sam Fisher’s return – Including the return of his much beloved original voice actor – is, in fact, a weekend special event for Ghost Recon: Wildlands!
Far Cry 5, and everything surrounding it is the focus of this week’s What We’ve Been Playing. Along with a brief chat on the franchises history of bad guys and why this latest installment isn’t everything the adverts promised. The lads’ co-op experience of puzzle adventure A Way Out gets a hefty chunk of this week’s chat.
Elsewhere, John has been playing the new Kirby game for the switch while Brooker got into single-player-but-really-co-op adventure game Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons.
I’ve said a dozen times that Co-Op isn’t really for me. Multiplayer gaming in general is a thing that hasn’t had it’s hooks in me since I finished Killzone: Shadow Fall all those years ago; and it’s because the dynamic of online multiplayer has changed in a way I can’t really get on board with.
