Sony’s show! Nintendo’s show! What a couple of parties! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #34)

Ahead of TGS, we can't help but get excited about all the stuff that's on the way!

Civilization VI Switch and old games we’re still waiting on a HD remaster for! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #33)

This week on the Digitally Uploaded podcast, we chat about a couple of big news moments that happened over the last week.

First up, Civilization VI for the Nintendo Switch. How good is it going to be having that in portable form on the go (very, very good).

Then we talk about THQ Nordic's excellent acquisiton of the Kingdoms of Amalur IP, and more broadly, how THQ Nordic has really emerged as a major publisher, especially of beloved classics of yesteryear.

Then, finally, we chat about older games that we're still waiting on a HD re-release for on modern consoles. Lollipop Chainsaw, for example.

Thanks as always for tuning in, and catch us on social media!

It’s our 100th episode!

What a milestone! The Digitally Uploaded podcast has this week hit 100 episodes from when we started, way back in 2016. Almost the entire DDNet team jumps on the podcast this week for a bit of chaos and fun as we look back over the last couple of years of gaming - the highs and the lows.

Also we talk a bit about Animal Crossing. C'mon Nintendo, a new console Animal Crossing game is way overdue.

Thank you for listening over the past 100 episodes, and here's to 100 more!

The games of September, and Nekopara! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #31)

It's a big month ahead for video games, as we start to ramp towards the all-important Christmas season, so we kick of this week's podcast with a chat about everything to look forward to in the month ahead.

And then, for something completely different, we chat about Nekopara - an adult visual novel on PC, but sanitised right down for the Nintendo Switch release; do games like this need the erotic scenes to work? That's what we muse over!

Thanks as always for tuning in, and be sure to grab the team on Twitter to chat!

The all-retro cast! Games that haven’t held up well, emulation, and modern-retro (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #30)

We've got a theme going on this week - all retro, all episode!

We kick things off by talking about games that haven't held up well at all (yes, GoldenEye 007. We go there). We also then talk about the sad demise of Emuparadise as an archive of the classics... and finally we chat about the idea of modern-retro; games that take old ideas but modernise them nicely.

Thanks as always for tuning in, and if you want to chat with us, come join us on Twitter!

Bullet Girls Phantasia is very pervy! Also Shinto spirituality and hunting games. (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #29)

Bullet Girls Phantasia is a mind-boggling game that's just been released in English throughout Asia. We've been playing it a heck of a lot and chat about that this week.

We also talk about how terrible hunting games are, and how awesome games are when they reflect Shinto spirituality.

Fortnite, and great games that are hard to play! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #28)

We had lots to talk about this week! First we talk about Fortnite and addiction (and the media's horrid handling of both topics), and then move on to really excellent games that are hard to motivate yourself to play.

We also chat about the new character additions to Dead or Alive 6, this year's NHL release, and game franchises that we'll continue to support no matter how bad they get (hello, Harvest Moon).

Be sure to chat with us on Twitter if you'd like - and let us know what topics you'd like for us to talk about!

In other news, we also talk about the gaming achievements that we're the most proud of... and we take a good look at the rather delightful Code of Princess EX, now out on Nintendo Switch!

Taiko the Drum, No Man’s Sky, and Captain Toad! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #26)

It's an eclectic mix this week, as we talk about the ongoing development of No Man's Sky, Taiko the Drum on the Nintendo Switch, and everyone's favourite Nintendo hero, Captain Toad!

Is it okay to creatively alter games after release, if "fans" don't like it? Or should a developer be able to stick to its creative vision, even if it means some people don't like it? That's been an ongoing debate in the games industry for some years now, with games being the one art form that can be "updated" after release, and forms the core of our discussion this week.

JRPG special! Shining Resonance, Octopath Traveller, and more! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #25)

It's all about the JRPG this week, with two equally-exciting JRPGs hitting the market!

The first is, of course, Octopath Traveller, the new, Nintendo-published love letter to the JRPGs of yesteryear. We chat about that one (without spoilers, of course). Then we chat about Shining Resonance Refrain, the first Shining game in ten years to make its way out west (we also chat about that one without spoilers).
