This week on Game Crunch: As the day of reckoning, November 10th 2015, approaches the crew is hard at work doing what they can to prepare. Mike is trying to clean up his slate to have it ready for the new games. Currently he’s balancing Chibi Robo Zip Lash, Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes, Yoshi’s Wooly World and a dash of Jackbox Party Pack 2. Can he be ready for StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void and Rise of the Tomb Raider on release day? Nick is at the other end of the spectrum. While he has games that he needs to finish – they could be listed out here, but this podcast would never be posted on time – he is working to find that perfect game to get his gaming fix and tide him over without leaving another corpse on his pile of shame. His choice? Game Dev Tycoon. Meanwhile, Mr. Secretive Brandon is very content with his new acquisition of Guitar Hero 5 – Err… Live. Will his true intentions ever be discovered? Is he prepared for November 10th? Listen and find out! Game On!
This week on Game Crunch: The march towards the 2015 holiday onslaught of games continues! Mike starts it off by talking about Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes! Although he was only able to play the demo the possibilities of the online dynamics are already clear! He also takes some time to explore the fluffy Yoshi’s Woolly World. Is it possible a game can be TOO cute? Nick spends some more time in Rock Band 4 and returns triumphant to Final Fantasy II. Meanwhile, Brandon goes to the dump bins of value and picks up more Playstation 2 games than could possibly be listed in this podcast description, but he does spend a little bit of time with the gem Killer 7. Things don’t slow down as the news rolls around: rumors of NX Dev kits shipping, Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD and Kojima officially leaves Konami. Game on!
This week on Game Crunch: The onslaught of new games is coming! Brandon and Nick both find themselves trying out games of the future (or is it the past?) with the Star Wars Battlefront beta! If that isn’t enough to get them rocking out on the new systems they do have Rock Band 4 to help them there. Is it the rocking out that the next gen needed or are the initial bumps a little too much on the new platform? Meanwhile Mike gets his hands on a piece of the future as well as he finally gets his hands on Whispers of Oblivion – the StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void prequel chapters, while he finishes up his foray into the past with StarCraft Mass Recall the fan made remake of the StarCraft campaigns for StarCraft 2. The podcast wraps up with news talking about the PS4 price drop, how not to piss off the Pokemon Company when getting sued and more! Game on!
This week on Game Crunch: It’s time for our big talk of Shadows of the Damned! Before that though this is one big Halloween themed Game Debate episode of Game Crunch! We answer your burning questions like: What aspect of a horror game is most important? What are your favorite scary themed areas in an otherwise unscary game? Has a video game ever scared you outside of the game? What game do you think offers a creepy/scary vibe even if that isn’t its intention? If that sampling of questions isn’t enough for you we also have a horror themed anagram quiz! Then there is the list of top ten spooky / horror games! THEN to wrap up the episode we have a lengthy discussion on Shadows of the Damned – what worked, what didn’t, the game play, the story – the EVERYTHING! This is a jam packed spooky episode of Game Crunch! Game on!
This week on Game Crunch: Shadows of the Damned be damned! Our playthrough had to be delayed (as well as the Game Debate) but don’t let that ruin your fun! The Game Debate crew found themselves still with plenty to talk about! Nick is still keeping it real with Destiny. Brandon checked out some big new releases this week with SOMA and Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer. Then Mike is still on his StarCraft II kick. This time playing through the original StarCraft and Brood War campaign redone by fans in the StarCraft II engine called StarCraft: Mass Recall! If that wasn’t enough there is even talk about the unlikely Vita successor (and how it is kind of actually Sony’s fault), a possible voice actor strike and more!
