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.
This week the whole crew is back together to talk about games. Mike tells us more about Micro Machines and Forza while Paul gets deep into Motorsport Manager while he and Kieran also discuss Mass Effect Andromeda and Marvel vs Capcom Infinite's demo.
We also talk about a ton of board games this week from podcast favourites like Sheriff of Nottingham, Splendor and the Arkham Horror LCG to new entries (for us) like Viticulture, Shiba Inu House and Dice Forge.
We ran a bit long with the recording this week, so it's a really long podcast but we didn't quite get time to go through this week's news. We'll try and catch up next week!
This week Paul is off doing real world things so Kieran and Mike talk about how much they continue to love the Wipeout series, the mediocre new entry to the Micro Machines franchise and the new DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Also, Mike talks about the most serious game of Knitwit ever played and a handful of other games he played at a recent game day.
