Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 121 - In In Stereo Stereo

It's a shorter episode this week due to some technical hiccups and unfortunate scheduling, but that doesn't mean we're skimping on the entertainment, oh no!

We may have a severly shortened news section, but we also have a music segment featuring a song chosen by one of our listeners, the first ever joint Ellery/Goss Ip, and a familiar face turns up to curate this week's What Have We Been Playing...

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 120 - Get Don In

Guess who's back. Back again. Don is back. Don't tell anybody though, because it's our little secret.

Yes, the one and only Don Goss has returned to fill you in on the newest, hottest Goss Ip in the world of video games, as well as to tell you what he's been playing for the past 6 months... And it's not just been Destiny!

We also have news of the inevitable N64 Mini, eSports on BBC3, KFC game controllers and the Pokemon Go Fest in America which did not Pokemon Go well! Plus, ofcourse, that video game music that you crave so much!

All of that plus musings on why video games fail in mainstream media, disappointing opinions about The Last Of Us, the very nature of perpetual non-achievement, and which type of midget porn is best.

Probably an episode you don't want to miss.

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 119 - Aven Stavens

Hello! It's time for another episode in one of the longest running podcasts going today (probably) the Gamecentral Podcast!

There's no Rob this week, instead it's just Dave and Gareth as they try to keep the ship afloat.

Of course we tell you about money you could have saved, we give you music, and we keep you updated on the news you need to hear, but this week we also have a review! For a game that's not even out yet!

Dave's been playing Aven Colony, a Civilization/Sim City style game that's coming to consoles soon, and Gareth's bought an Oculus Rift. Lot's to talk about on what is (probably) one of the longest running podcasts of all time (maybe)!

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 118 - RE3cap 2017

This week we only have one thing on our minds: E3 2017.

Even though it's after work on a Friday, we go through each of the press conferences and point out our high(and low)lights, which we're sure every listener will agree with 100%.

All that plus, ofcourse, your weekly pinch of deals, and splash of video game music.

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 117 - Nier, Far, Wherever You Are

Amongst more horribleness this week, we're doing our usual thing to take your mind off it: Talking about absolute bullshit and video games.

This week there was news about the official announcement of Far Cry 5, which we talk about, amongst other things which I would try to remember except it's late and I'm tired.

Then in What Have We Been Playing, Rob has had his hands on a robot schoolgirl in Nier: Automata. Does he like it? Would you believe me if I told you that you would find out if you listened to the podcast? So many questions.

This, as well as your weekly music sections and now completely out-of-date deals and we've got ourselves an episode on our hands!

Enjoy, and stay safe out there.

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 116 - Business As Usual

It's been a rough few days here in Manchester, but in the face if that we've decided to put out an episode like we normally would, because doing anything else would just feel wrong. So get your headphones on, because your almost-weekly episode of the Gamecentral Podcast has finally arrived.

We've got a packed News section, a now irrelevant Ellery Ip and a long-ass What Have We Been Playing, so steel yourself for over 90 minutes of human males saying words into microphones for your hypothetical entertainment.

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 115 - Bananas

New segments, old segments, and everything inbetween for this week's brand new Gamecentral Podcast!

They say no news is good news... But those people probably don't have a podcast with a prominent news section. In any event, Darksiders 3 is a thing that's happening and if you like facts about bananas then, weirdly, we've got you covered this week.

We also have the Ellery Ip, the only segment in podcasting that actively tries to Dave you money; the music segment, in which Rob's choice of song is not played for the 2nd week in a row; and a brand new fan fiction driven segment that you didn't know you didn't want until now!

Then in What Have We Been Playing we talk Player Unknown's Battlegrounds, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Dota 2, Pro Evolution Soccer and a few other nuggets of game chat peppered here and there.

"This shhh is bananas! [insert spelling of 'bananas' here]"

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 114 - More Professional

Okay, playtime's over, time to turn this into the professional, serious podcast it was always meant to be.

This week we talk about our disbelief of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's review scores, Nintendo Switch sales, the New Nintendo 2DS XL, and Call of Duty: WWII.

Then in What Have We Been Playing we've got, amongst other things, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Sherlock Holmes, and the talk of the video game town: Player Unknown's Battlegrounds.

No frills, just some good, old fashioned, serious, professional video game discourse...

...ish.

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 113 - Mastication

Picture the scene: It's a Saturday night. Rob's awake, Dave's not out clubbing, and Gareth is halfway through a chicken dinner. The perfect time to talk about video games!!!

We've got news on the Switch, Nintendo's aversion to making money and ofcourse, all the deals you need in this week's ElleryIp.

Also, it's been a while since it happened but we've actually played games that are somewhat relevant and interest to talk about! So settle in while we talk about Mass Effect: Andromeda! Horizon: Zero Dawn! Ryse, and some Sherlock Holmes game!... Wait, no that can't be right... no, it is. Damn, so close!

Gamecentral Podcast: Bonus Episode - 'Yooka-Laylee' Thoughts

I was lucky enough to obtain a copy of Yooka-Laylee pre-release, so I thought I'd record my thoughts about what I'd played for any of you out there that are thinking about buying the game. Oh, and this isn't a review, I can't stress that enough. Grains of salt encouraged to be taken, your mileage will vary, etc.
