Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 125 - Brothellery Love

Happy 125th episode! We're back after an embarrassingly long hiatus with more of your favourite segments, more of your favourite "bants", and more Ellerys than ever before!

We've not been around for a while so we try our best to bring you up to speed on the last 6 weeks in gaming the only way we know how: By talking about vaginas. Paris Games Week, Xbox One X, Red Dead Redemption 2 trailers and so much more has been and gone and we'll let you know what we thought about it.

There's also the mainstays of your Ellery Ip and Music Segments, along with a surprise segment as it's a somewhat special occasion.

Then we finish off by talking about what everyone's been playing, including Super Mario Odyssey, Destiny 2, and Rob's honeymoon in LA.

Congratulations to us for reaching another milestone, and congratulations to you for reading this entire podcast description! You're the real MVP.

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 124 - Easy Like A Sunday Morning

If you're interested in nipples, football and Sundays, then you have no choice but to listen to this week's episode of the Gamecentral Podcast!

We're a Don down, but we're making do with what we've got by inserting some Ellery-Ip into you, then, if there's any room left in there we wouldn't mind shoving in a little video game music segment.

But if you're not into that then we still have some juicy News for you. News like PewDiePie fucking up again, Nintendo honoring Satoru Iwata with some free golf, some new Switch games on the way, some new L.A. Noire on the way and that new Tomb Raider movie trailer.

Then in What Have We Been Playing, Rob walks us through this year's Pro Evolution Soccer vs. this year's Fifa. Which will be the superior game? One thing's for sure, we're the only podcast in the world with the answer!

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 123 - Croissants

Like a nice Sunday brunch, we're here again to leave you feeling satisfied, overcharged, and just a little bit sick.

This week we've got some Destiny 2 PC beta impressions, as well as some news about the latest and greatest in Nintendo's upcoming indie game line-up, Yakuza 2 getting Remade, Fallout 4's Creation Club and Half-Life 3's story getting leaked,

On top of all that, like some butter on top of a delicious croissant, we'll be giving you your weekly Ip and music sections, along with a special message from this week's sponsor: Bungie's 'Destiny 2'!

Bon appetit!

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 122 - Sonic Maniac

This week it's all about Sonic Mania for Rob, and with no other major releases of note, consider that our main event.

But before the main event we need to fill you in on the week's news, including stories on the Sims 4, Crackdown 3, Xbox One X and Jurassic World Evolution. No glitches in our audio this week either, so it's a full and robust news segment just for you.

We also have the music that you crave and all the Ip that's fit to grip, so ease back in your seat and listen to this podcast. I mean you might as well, right?

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.
