Mike and AJ weight in on the VGX, Fallout 4 rumors, and a slew of games. Mike defended a killer whale in the Ace Attorney 5 DLC, explored caves in Spelunky, and chopped up a horde of zombies in Dead Rising 3. Meanwhile, AJ experience the not one, but two Sonic games on 3DS: Sonic Lost World and Sonic the Hedgehog 3D. And Peggle 2 too!
Mike and AJ take some Battlefield 4, Forza 5, Madden 25, microtransactions, and how to not play piano.
With the Xbox One here, and the next gen is the now gen. We answer your Xbox One questions, talk hardware, and play Forza 5, Battlefield 4, Crimson Dragon, Killer Instinct, and Kinect Sports Rivals Preseason. We also have more Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Super Mario 3D World, and Persona news.
The Playstation 4 is here! We go hands on with the system, controller, Killzone: Shadowfall, Knack, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Resogun, and more! Mike also got to review The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and AJ played the multiplayer in Batman: Arkham Origins. Plus, news from Blizzcon!
Next week the next generation begins! Until then, we look at Call of Duty: Ghosts’ place in the market, the announcement of how Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes release, and how Nintendo fits in to all this non-sense as they announce the Wii Mini for America.
Can you believe it? 300 episodes of the Exploding Barrel Podcast. To celebrate, we take another look at the next gen consoles while remember the 360/PS3 generation that EBP was around for. We also played Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Dual Destinies, WWE 2K14, Batman: Arkham Origins, and (gasp) GTAV. Thanks for listening! We’ll see if we can muster another 300 episodes!
Mike and AJ are timidly holding on to their gaming budgets as they await the next gen systems and their next gen games. That means no Assassin’s Creed and Battlefield for us just yet. We’re keeping busy with The Wolf Among Us, Sonic: Lost World, and more Pokemon X and Y.
My Pokemons! Yes, we’ve been playing Pokemon X and Y for a while now. And now we can talk about it at last. Mike also got a new graphics card for his PC, and he has been enjoying a plethora of graphical goodness. Who needs next gen consoles anyways?
Mike and AJ are preparing for the upcoming console launches by checking out the launch line-ups for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. We also got some time with the Battlefield 4 beta.
Mike and AJ talk about the wildly different looking Steam Controller. We also talk about the end of Shadow of the Eternals, the fate of the Last Guardian, and Grand Theft Auto Online’s turn at launch woes.
