Nintendo held a direct last week, and it impressed us that much that we decided to talk exclusively about it in the podcast this week. From Deadly Premonition to SNES classics on the Switch, the 40-minute show demonstrated how the Switch is going from strength to strength... and it is amazing to watch.
So this week we talk about the highlights from the show (there were many), what we'd still like to see from Nintendo (yes, there are areas for improvement), and we rave about how good Deadly Premonition really is.
Thanks as always for tuning in! See you next week!
With the HD remaster of Final Fantasy VIII released this week, the DDNet team took the opportunity to look back at all the Final Fantasy (numbered) series, and talk about the good, the bad, and the way the series has evolved over time.
That's right. From Final Fantasy I through to XV we talk about them all this week.
We also have a look at all the games you'll be playing in September. There are a lot of those.
Thanks as always for tuning in!
The big "art blockbuster" release this week is Control, from the makers of Max Payne and Alan Wake. We have a good chat about that one on this week's podcast!
We also take a look at all the big announcements from Gamescom, the "replacement E3". And we chat through a recent wave of censorship that has hit Australia courtesy of a number of very high profile games getting themselves banned.
Thanks as always for tuning in! Let us know of there are ever any topics you would like for us to address, and we'll get right on it!
Phew! That's been a couple of weeks. Our podcast recording platform got up and died, so we needed to find an alternative. That's why we've been away the last couple of weeks, but we're back now.
So this week we talk about ACE Team's mesmerising new game, The Eternal Cylinder. We've only seen a first trailer of it so far, but we're completely sold on it. We also talk about Plague Inc, which is still kicking around after almost a decade and just released on Nintendo Switch.
And we have a bit more of a laugh at the ongoing saga that is Borderlands 3. It's the gift that keeps on giving.
Thank you for your patience as we worked through those tech issues!
It was a very sad week for the games industry last week, with one of the finest and most respected game developers, Defiant Development, closing up shop despite being behind the critical darlings Hand of Fate and Hand of Fate 2.
We talk a bit about where Aussie game development is, and what we'd like to see for it next. We also talk about all the lovely games releasing in August this year... and of course there are a lot of them!
Thanks as always for tuning in, and we look forward to seeing you at the next one!
Welcome back! We had a week's hiatus to get some other things done, but we're back this week, in style. Nintendo's had a whole lot of stuff out to talk about, Netflix tried its best to ruin Stranger Things on us all, and we have a good chat about games we've gone back to after taking a break from them.
Thanks as always for tuning in, and remember, if there's ever a topic you'd like to see us cover, just let us know!
What an awesome week of news we had last week, headed by the return of Hatsune Miku to consoles! Yes! She's getting a brand new Switch experience, and we chat about that, and some of the other exciting stuff that came last week.
We also catch up on all the awesome stuff that Final Fantasy XIV's new expansion is bringing us, and we list out our favourite arcade games of all time.
Thanks as always for tuning in, and we'll catch up with you all next week!
We're now halfway through the year! Tired yet? Well, you're going to get a whole lot more tired soon, because there's a lot to play this coming month!
We also have a good ol' chat about our favourite fighting games of all time (and why), and we discuss two of the biggest releases over the last week in-depth: Judgement and Bloodstained.
Thanks as always for tuning in, and we'll catch you next week!
Don't worry. We don't actually talk about Tifa's boobs, or the ridiculous controversy surrounding them. Much.
We have a great podcast for you this week! There's so many horror games releasing at the moment, so we talk about that, and then we also chat about My Friend Pedro and the old bugbear it raises - the question of violence.
This week we also try out a new feature, listing out our three favourite games within a specific genre. This week we're talking about sports games, but if there's any particular genre that you ever want us to chat about, let us know in the comments!
So, how good was E3 this year? Well, it was great if you were a fan of Nintendo and retro games... but was there much more to this year's show?
In our post-E3 wrap and debrief, we talk about everything that excited us in the show, what we're looking forward to playing, and what the biggest highlights were.
Thanks as always for tuning in, and we'll see you all next week!
