Valve and censorship, “content” vs value - yeah we get heated this week (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #18)

Join Alan and the band as we talk about some of the many big debates that exploded over the last week:

Should we be counting the value of games by the number of hours of entertainment they've provided? Should Steam be removing "adult" Japanese games but not touching western ones? And what the heck is up with Microsoft actually pushing out a new zombie game in 2018?

Looking forward to E3, Football, and a bit more Yakuza (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #17)

E3's rapidly approaching, and we're starting to see announcements coming in regarding what we can expect from that event, so we kick this week's discussion off with what we know about E3 so far.

With the FIFA World Cup rapidly approaching, we also have a chat about football games - both EA's FIFA and its great rival, Konami's PES.

And then we finish the podcast off this week with a chat about Yakuza - a series that we just can't get out of our minds now.

Thanks as always for tuning in! Grab us on Twitter if you'd like to chat:

Fire Emblem, retro games… and this podcast goes places (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #16)

Note: While Digitally Uploaded tries to be an all-ages podcast, we do get a little silly on this particular episode. So apologies in advance for that.

There may have been something in the water this week. But anyway, in between all the nonsense (and there is a lot of nonsense this week), we do chat about satire in video games, really retro retro stuff, and Fire Emblem! We do love Fire Emblem!

Final Fantasy VIII, Studio Ghibli and games that kids and adults love equally! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #13)

This week on the DDNet podcast, we take a break from video games to discuss Studio Ghibli and the impact that those amazing films have had on us.

Fighting games and DLC, co-op gaming and more! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #12)

This week on the DDNet podcast, we chat about DLC and fighting games - with it looking more and more like the genre is heading towards F2P and expanding rosters via DLC, what are our tolerance thresholds for these things.

Then we chat about that old chestnut - violence and game addiction, and in particular how the media portrays these things.

Finally, and to finish things off on a happier note, we chat about the resurgence in co-op gaming.

Come chat with us on Twitter if you'd like, and thanks for tuning in!

The games of April! Also Okami in-depth and more! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #11)

Amazingly enough, after one very busy February and March, April is shaping up to be something of a relief from the endless big releases. Still, there's a few gems in there, so we help highlight the titles you should be keeping an eye out for.

We also get a bit nostalgic in looking back at the games that convinced us to get really into video games in the first place. To write about games and spend a lot of time doing things like podcasts it needs to be more than a hobby to us, so we thought we'd have a chat about what really drove us to take our passion for games that far.

Finally, we have a great chat about Okami and why that game is not a "Zelda-clone" for a reason.

Tomb Raider! Yakuza! Rhythm games! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #10)

This week's podcast was an eclectic mix!

First up, we talked about Tomb Raider; the games, the movie, and the IP in general. It's been a busy couple of weeks for Lara and her adventures.

Then we talked about rhythm games, in light of DJ Max turning us a bit batty, and then Yakuza 0, as the world gears up to get stuck right in to Yakuza 6. What a game that was.

Thanks for tuning in! As always, catch us on Twitter if you'd like to chat!

Awesome bad games, Nintendo Direct, and Life Is Strange! (Digitally Uploaded 2018, Episode #9)

Last week brought us a new Nintendo Direct, so of course we had to have a good chat about that. We also took a look at games that are "bad", in that they don't play well by conventional standards, but we love them anyway.

And for our in-depth look at a game, we have a chat about the original Life Is Strange, which remains one of the very best examples of storytelling in games that you can find.

Thanks as always for tuning in, and grab us on Twitter if you'd like!
