We're going to be a bit on and off over December/January I'm afraid, so we might miss a week here and there but it'll all be worth it in the end!This week Mike, Paul and Kieran reconvene to talk about what is quite frankly too many games. We've got Star Wars Battlefront 2, Wolfenstein The New Colossus, Jackbox Party Pack 4, Hidden Agenda, Cat Quest, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Mario Odyssey, Sonic Forces, Animal Crossing Pocket Camp, Gloomhaven....AND MORE...It's a long one this week, so get your comfy clothes on, make yourself a nice warm cup of tea and stare blankly at the wall while you listen to three angry scotsmen talk for three-ish hours.
(also we'll be doing Game Of The Year in a few weeks, uh oh)
So, this episode was actually meant to come out last week...But regardless we talk a lot about Mario Odyssey! That game is just so goddamn good and we've all been playing it! If you're not super interested in that though Mike chimes in with his first impressions of Pandemic Legacy 2 and we discuss other recent releases like Mario and Rabbids, Fire Emblem Warriors and Shadow of Middle War...Uh, Shadow of Wardor? Shadow of...war?
So, heads up on this one. I forgot to upload it a week or so ago when it was recorded. This is entirely my fault (Kieran here btw.) We're on Hiatus for a few weeks as we have some overlapping holidays/real world nonsense getting in the way. The good thing being now that I've accidentally uploaded this podcast late, you only have another week or so to wait for a new episode :D
This week we discuss Bears vs Babies and why it sucks, also better games like Secrets, Cuphead, Splatoon 2 and Kieran's impressions of the SNES Mini!
100 podcast hosts are dropped on an island and Kieran and Paul must fight them all to be the last two standing this week as they dive into Fortnite: Battle Royale and find that it's a little bit more than just a cartoon version of Battlegrounds. Also, Kieran explains how cool Echo is in theory even if it doesn't quite stick the landing, updates us on how the Switch port of Xenoverse 2 is and more!
Games just keep coming out! But the GFG squad are trying their hardest to play as many of them as they can!
This week we discuss the latest WRC release, the Project Octopath Traveller demo, Kingdom: New Lands for the Switch and Conga Master Party and also more Splatoon 2 and Puyo Puyo Tetris.
We have a full crew this week and we've all played a ton of games! Mario And Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Madden 2018, Injustice 2, Starcraft 2, Flick 'em Up Dead of Winter, Arms and that's not even half of them!
Also Mike got a Switch! So we discuss his first impressions of that too!
As we start accelerating into a sprint towards the end of the year, Kieran and Mike jump into some of this year's big releases across video games and board games with Yakuza Kiwami, Mario and Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, This War Of Mine the board game and Flick 'em Up Dead of Winter. Also, Kieran dives back into The Evil Within and finally starts enjoying it.
Also, the news and new releases!
Kieran and Mike hold the fort this week and discuss Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, Sonic Mania, Starcraft Remastered and many more videogames.
On the board game front, Mike talks about his recent purchases Kingdomino, The Dresdin Files, The Godfather and Tales of Arabian Nights.
This week Mike is away but Kieran and Paul have played a enough games that we still manage to run a bit over time!
We talk about great games like the latest iteration of Motorsport Manager and Supergiant's latest masterpiece, Pyre. Then also some uh...less great games like Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 and Prey. Also Kieran returns to Starcraft 2 and finds that the rage it once caused him has subsided.
All this and news, new releases and first impressions of the Superhot card game!
This week Mike and Kieran obsess over their recent boardgame day where they played Euphoria, Funemployed, Dice Forge and more. Meanwhile on the videogame front, Mike continues to eat away at Forza Horizon 3 while Kieran picks up Splatoon 2 and explains just why the Switch's online system is the worst one around.
