Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 131 - McDonalds' Milkshake Machine

The sun has finally shown itself once again to the British Isles and we don't really know how to handle it, so we decided to lock ourselves indoors and spend a few hours talking about video games.

We're talking about the video game BAFTAs, God of War, Skyrim VR, Steamworld Dig 2, Xbox One backwards compatibility, Final Fantasy XV, Sea of Thieves, Grand theft Auto V, Drake, Ex-Donkey Kong World Champion Billy Mitchell AND MORE!

So buy yourself a 99, pull up a deck chair, and don't even bother trying to get a milkshake from McDonalds because unfortunately the machine isn't working today.

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 129 - Like, Share, Subscribe

Hey! Hi! Hello!

We're back, and we're celebrating the first year of the Nintendo Switch with a segment in which we talk about the system's first year on the market. We discuss the games, what we like about the console and what we want for its future.

We've got news for you about some video game movies in the works, Red Dead Redemption 2's release getting pushed back, Donald Trump's blaming of violence on video games and more on top of that.

We've also got your usual dose of Ellery Ip, some great video game music and plenty of talk about things that aren't video games. We end the podcast with talk of Player Unknown's Battlegrounds, Dragonball FighterZ, Fifa, Civilization VI and more in "What Have We Been Playing?!"

Here's hoping you enjoy this episode of the podcast and tell all your coworkers, elderly family members and strangers in the street to have a cheeky listen themselves!

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 128 - Player Dave's Battlegrounds

No your eyes do not deceive you, we have returned!

On this episode, apart from the usual random bullshit, we're talking Nintendo cardboard; God of War's release date; Microsoft's newest method of getting their new games to you; and ofcourse, that supposed Michael Bay Duke Nukem movie starring John Cena.

Then in 'What Have We Been Playing' we mostly talk to Dave about the Xbox One version of Player Unknown's Battlegrounds and see if the magic of the game still holds up or is the shine is off the apple for Xbox gamers? All of that and, ofcourse, much more besides.

Enjoy!

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 126 - And A Happy New Year

Happy New Year listeners! We hope you had a great holiday, and a responsible New Year, and you're now mentally prepared to hear the intellectual heights of the Gamecentral Podcast.

We've got news for you, we've got music, we've got expired deals and we've got lists of games we played in 2017, both long and short.

If that sounds like a short description that's because it's New Years Day and you don't want to read a long blurb about the podcast, you just want to put your head back and absorb the dulcet tones of our elite video game luminaries... and Dave is also there.

Happy 2018!

Gamecentral Podcast: Bonus Episode - Star Wars: The Last Jedi

In a break from our regularly scheduled programming... Or rather, in a break from our programming, We bring you a review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

It is I, Gareth. Come hear me turn on a microphone with no script and no plan, but a lot of thoughts about the newest film in the Star Wars franchise.

There will be thoughts and opinions for those still waiting to see the film, and a full-blown spoiler section for all of you who have seen it already. But did I (a lifelong Star Wars fan) enjoy the film? You'll just have to listen to find out!

If you agree (or disagree?!?) with my thoughts come find me on Twitter @GameBanter and let's talk Star Wars!

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!
