Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 142 - Crapcom

Between the Resident Evil 2 remake and Devil May Cry 5, Capcom are drowning in a sea of praise as of late, but we can't help but ask: Is it deserved? Are these games really as special as the "consensus" would have you believe? Join us in the discussion.

In the news this episode we're covering the Google Stadia, Borderlands 3, and the recent BAFTAs. We also have only the best gaming music for you, and a familiar, sinister face makes a reappearance...

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 138 - Unrealistic Ammo

Is an over dedication to realism ruining games? That's one of the topics up for discussion on this weeks show, citing Fallout 76 and Red Dead Redemption 2 as primary examples.

We also have the latest news for you, including the Epic Store's gradual rise in power, new VR developments, and a certain time limited demo for a certain scary-as-fuck game.

As well as all that we have your usual Did You Know and Music segments, as well as talk about Earth Defence Force 5, Overcooked 1 & 2, Magic the Gathering: Arena, Bloodborne, and more!

Welcome to 2019! Ask me next year how my vision is.

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 136 - HitFalloutMan 726

It's back! The The Gamecentral Podcast! The most hipster podcast on the internet! "Oh, what podcast do I listen to? You've probably never heard of it. They only put out one episode every 3 months and it's 2 hours of barely coherent, utter crap when they do. It's fabulous."

This episode we go deep in our review of Fallout 76. You might even say TOO deep. We also review Hitman 2... Though thankfully that review is quite a bit shallower.

We also have news on the Playstation mini, Sony pulling out (of E3), Detective Pikachu, and much more news for you! Plus some other stuff that we're... Erm... Still working out the kinks on.

A new generation of the podcast? Or a podcast that's exactly the same as it used to be? The answer to both questions is, somehow, yes.

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 135 - The Spiderman One

Marvel at this monumental episode of the podcast as we finally release an episode that coincides with a new release! Yes, Rob can barely contain his excitement this episode because he's played the new Spiderman for PS4, and you can bet you'll hear a good deal about it coming out of his mandibles! You could say he's got spiders on the brain, and not the kind that killed my great, great, great grandad in 1894.

The best podcast on the web also has some sexy news for you, like Nintendo's latest Direct coming at you in semi-list form; Henry Cavill's newest role as [insert results of google search for "that main twat from The Witcher" here] in Netflix's The Witcher TV series; a new holder to the rights to beloved franchise gaming Timesplitters may mean remakes or new entries in the series; and some news stories specially chosen by Rob that may or may not need fact checking.

Then we finish up with more discussiion about Spiderman, as well as some Dead Cells, Prison Architect, Dying Light and more before you swing away onto the next podcast in your queue!

Signed, your friendly neighbourhood podcast hosts

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 134 - 4Kelly Clarkson

It's been a while, but your patience has been rewarded! With another 2 hours of Gamecentral Podcast!

We may have had a break, but so have video games! So forgive our sparse news segment, we'll make it up to you though, because we've got an Ellery Ip and a 3-song music segment!

We also have a special feature in which we discuss the practicality and necessity of 4K, in gaming or otherwise. Is it affordable enough? Is the technology impressive enough? Is it worth it? We'll try to answer these questions and more.

Then in 'Time To Play The Game' we're talking Monster Hunter World, Red Faction ReMARStered Edition and No Mans Sky!

The British heatwave's almost over, but don't worry, the podcast isn't! We love you all too much.
