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.

#E3

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This, as well as your weekly music sections and now completely out-of-date deals and we've got ourselves an episode on our hands!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

Digitiser Podcast: Episode 112 - 01/04/1998 - Game Boy Colour

This week Dave has been scouring the high street for the latest deals on your cartridges and discs, and we talk the upcoming Game Boy Colour and its camera and printer add-ons. Will they change the world?!? We seem to think so!

And I guess hypothetically, if it were 2017, we'd talk about Mass Effect Andromeda, Evolve, Earth Defence Force for Vita, and Resident Evil 7. But that's just hypothetical.

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 110 - Smack My Switch Up

Hey! You there! Have you heard the good word of our lord and saviour Nintendo, and his son the Switch? No? Then let us fill you in!

Yes the Switch is now out and Nintendo sent us some early hardware to give you our honest first impressions (disclaimer: No they didn't, and no we don't.)

There's still a wad of Ellery-Ip, a clump of video game music, and an ejaculation of What Have We Been Playing to sink your teeth into on this week's episode too, featuring talk of Ghost Recon Wildlands, Sleeping Dogs, Just Cause 3, Hitman, Yakuza Zero and Resident Evil 4.

See, plenty to enjoy for all you Nintendo haters out there! Though if you don't like Nintendo then please do not listen to our podcast.
