Episode 63 – Top 12 Years In Gaming (part 1)

It seems that 2017 is well on its way to making the case for being one of the strongest years in video gaming history. Since we are still in Q1, that determination will have to wait. Instead, we look back on the years 1985-2016 to create our very own list: The Top 12 Years In Gaming.

Joining Tim & Derek this week are two special guests from the community: Kyle Neely (from the Entertournament of Champions podcast) and Colin Perkins (from the Geeksquatch Podcast). In part 1 of this 2-part episode, we talk about a number of games we are playing including some early impressions of Mass Effect Andromeda from Derek. To kick off our Top 12 Years In Gaming debate, we each nominate 3 games to be on the list. In part 2 (releasing next week), we will create a ranked list of those 12.

Thanks for listening, and don’t forget to tune in next week!

Episode 62 – Zelda Breath of the Wild & The Switch

Nintendo’s new console is here! It’s a handheld that is also a home console, but how is it? How are the controllers? How is the UI? What about the game selection? Does it feel like Nintendo rushed the launch?

We talk about that and more in this week’s special Nintendo Switch episode. For our final topic, we take a look at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. We discuss our *spoiler-free* thoughts on the experience so far and what makes this game so special.

Thanks for listening!
