Late to the Party (Ep 353)

October 27, 2020

Hades has given Brad the roguelike bug, so he's got impressions of Dead Cells and Risk of Rain 2 this week! We also talk yet another Cyberpunk 2077 delay, AOC's massive success on Twitch, a strange Gears 5 update, where Assassin's Creed on Netflix will succeed where the Assassin's Creed movie failed, another incredibly dumb industry take from a guy who has made giving dumb industry takes a cottage industry, and the impact cloud gaming could have on climate change.

You Knew What This Was (Ep 352)

You Knew What This Was (Ep 352)

October 20, 2020

2K Games is at it again! NBA 2K21 has become the latest game to continue what's truly become a disgusting trend in video games, and what can be done about it? On the opposite end of the spectrum, Sucker Punch has delivered a fantastic free update for Ghost of Tsushima, Sony fixes what wasn't broken and throws in a dash of privacy concerns to boot, Phil Spencer says Bethesda games don't need PlayStation (but they probably will still end up there anyway), and the left is leveraging emerging platforms for political engagement brilliantly.

We’re Not the Kind of Guys to Say ‘We Told You So’… (Ep 351)

We’re Not the Kind of Guys to Say ‘We Told You So’… (Ep 351)

October 13, 2020

So Marvel's Avengers is in a bad way! We talk about that and the shut down of Crucible to discuss why games need more than just a business model to succeed. We also talk more Hades (of course), PS5's now-fleshed out backwards compatibility plans, even more censorship in gaming, the tragic irony with Star Wars Squadrons, Slay the Spire strats, Microsoft trying an end-around on Apple, and Big E's eventual push.

You Should’ve Pet the Dog (Ep 349)

Hades is so good we talk about it for another 20 minutes this week! We also talk about what games are prime to be the next No Man's Sky-esque redemption story, memory upgrades in this next console generation, Amazon's debut of Luna, and which Premier League club should each of the other Dense Pixels hosts support?

Fresh to Death (Ep 348)

Fresh to Death (Ep 348)

September 22, 2020

Hades is PHENOMENAL and Micah and Brad are here to tell you why and make Terrence pine for a PlayStation release. Both Sony and Microsoft stumble and fall when it comes to PS5/Xbox Series X preorders, how are we STILL using AA batteries in controllers?!, Madden buyers ensure they will receive a minimum viable product every year, the 3DS is officially in the ground.

 

Oh, and Microsoft bought Bethesda. Seems like something we should talk about.

Begun, the Console Wars Have (Ep 347)

September 16, 2020

We finally have date and price for both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X (and S). Which one are we getting? Microsoft makes the Series S even more of a bewildering product, Brad and Terrence remind you Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning - still really damn fun, EA adds a ton of value to Game Pass Ultimate, Remedy giveth and Remedy taketh away, and which game hero archetypes are we absolutely over at this point?

A 5-Second Google Search (Ep 345)

A 5-Second Google Search (Ep 345)

September 1, 2020

Ubisoft makes an incredible unforced error and we're actually pretty pissed about it. Fall Guys pays their meteoric rise forward to charity, Gamescom Opening Night Live was a pretty solid success, the war between Epic Games and Apple continues in pettiness, the Biden/Harris campaign finds a new avenue for promotion, and digital Ronald Reagan seems a crappy as IRL Reagan from the looks of Call of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War.

August 25, 2020

We finally gained some insight on the DC games coming from WB Games with Gotham Knights and the far off Suicide Squad titles that were shown off at DC Fandome, it's Madden time already?!, Activision seems to be running against the grain with next-gen upgrades, a new Switch may truly be coming next year, we talk our favorite battle themes not found in Final Fantasy or Golden Sun, and which holidays were the absolute worst to work at GameStop?
