#229: Just Ignore My Hands

00:0000:00

Are you ready for some news? Because thats all we're doing in this one! 

Oh, and Lee has played a little indie game, not sure you'll ever hear of it - Call of Duty: Black Ops 4! 

 

Final Fantasy's are coming to Xbox, and we couldn't be happier! If you ask us, its about time. We can't wait to dive into 7, 9 and 10 all over again. Sorry 8, but you're a bit late to this party. PUBG was broken, and then fixed, and then fixed some more in what turns out to be a rollercoaster of emotions. Alexa is now friends with Cortana, which is sweet, even if a little wrong. And we know someone who will be over the moon to hear the Lego Harry Potter is coming to Xbox as well!

 

But we all know what you're here for - and thats Lee's Blackout Beta Review! Listen to what he says about the new Call of Duty, and why PUBG should be worried. Very worried. Just ignore our hands as we dive in.

Do dinosaurs eat brussel sprouts? We try to find out!

 

Simone is having a hard time with driving a horse and shooting the bad guys in Red Dead Redemption. And dating more pigeons. These two might be related... Kyle is getting absorbed into Gears of War 4 and has managed to convince Lee to play too. No seriously, check out our YouTube! And everyone is still being amazed at the beauty of Star Wars Battlefront 2. 

 

In the news, PUBG gets achievements, Forza Horizon 4 releases its achievements and Gears of War 4 is getting ready for its final achievements... To remember all of that is quite an achievement! 

 

We have 20 new games on Xbox releasing this week, and Simone goes through most of them. 

 

But the best news to come out of this week - Henry Cavill is going to be Geralt - The Witcher - in a new Netflix series!

#227: Xbox Axe(cess)

00:0000:00

Do you want to learn all about tupperware parties? Do you even know what a tupperware party is? Well, you're in luck - our special guest Jeremy is here to explain everything you need to know about them. From how to get started, to what you need, to even what tupper really is. You don't want to miss this one!

 

With Simone being away, we take the time to reflect on the lull of news by talking about Xbox All Access! It's real, it's a thing, and no, Phil will not come to your house if you buy it. Trust us, we asked...

 

We also talk about games, and in particular - No Man's Sky - which has absorbed Jeremy's life. Star War Battlefront 2 - which has absorbed Kyle's life. And of course, Forza Horizon 2 - which has absorbed Lee's life.

Also, something something about Destiny 2?

We're back! And Just in time to get on the Gamescom Hype Train for this year. 

 

Gamescom happened this week in Germany! And were pretty sure you aren't tired of hearing about it yet. There is a ton of news to get through. From PUBG controllers to Battlefield V Special Edition Xbox One X's and everything in between. Sea of Thieves gets an expansion, State of Decay 2 gets an expansion, PUBG gets a release date and Hunt: Showdown pops up on our radars. We have the freshest Xbox news, shipped to you straight from Germany, via the internet to us. And then to you.

 

Simone has come around to loving Halo, just like we knew she would, Kyle takes more drugs in Fallout 4 and Lee races around the French country side in Forza Horizon 4. And because you've missed us, there is always talk about Destiny 2...

#225: The 50th Episode

00:0000:00

This here is a very special episode. For you see, its our 50th episode ever! 

What? We never did any beta episodes. No idea what you're talking about. 

 

Anyways! This time we start off a bitt differently. The format is undergoing a revision, so please let us know what you think. 

Kyle plays Sea of Thieves, becomes a drug addict in Fallout 4 and tells some really awesome jokes. Simone talks to us about Quantum Break and the amazing end boss fight. Lee... Lee has been driving cars. Not real cars. Forza Horizon cars. To be honest, we're starting to get a bit worried. 

 

In the news, Sea of Thieves hits 5 million players, Xbox Game Pass gets an annual subscription and over 9 million people have joined Lee in their car hobby as Forza Horizon 3 announces its player base numbers. 

 

As a reminder, on the 4th of August, at 7ish PM New Zealand time, join us on our Mixer channel as we celebrate hitting 50 episodes with a live stream and some friends.

And out of nowhere, a normal episode appears! 

But how can you be normal with this bunch?

 

Since we're back with your regularly scheduled episode, Lee comes at us with news, nuus, and knews... So much news! Xbox Scarlett and its streaming capabilities, Microsoft hitting $10 Billion with is gaming division, Shadow of War removing microtransactions, QuakeCON coming u, Destiny 2 news and... Fortnite took up 20% of all internet traffic in New Zealand? Say what? 

 

For new games, we have a big one - No Man's Sky lands on Xbox with its NEXT update and the screenshots being shared on Twitter make it look amazing. We can't ait to jump in to what looks like a properly finished game. And Train Sim World opens up the Northeast Coridor. We think thats where the posh people are. 

 

Kyle goes on about Fallout 4 (only a few years too late) and Lee has completed 80-something percent of Forza Horizon 3! 

 

We're one episode away from hitting our 50th episode, which is awesome news! We have a live stream event planned for the weekend of the 4th, so be sure to check out our Facebook or Twitter page for deets and timing and stuff like that...

 

All of this, and more in this 'normal' episode of The Xboxcast.

A year ago, we came together to talk about games. Who would have thought we'd still be doing this? Not us, thats who! 

 

But here we are, officially one year old! And what better way to celebrate, than to eat cake while trying talk... Well that and have a look back at our very first episode - Episode Numero Uno. 

 

From the news of yesteryear, to what we were playing back then and then even a bit of introspection where Kyle asks everyone how happy they are to be seeing his face every week, this episode has it all. Plus cake. Well... Chocolate brownies. But still, thats sort of cake right? 

 

This episode was streamed live on Mixer, so if you want to see our setup procedure and how many false starts we have to suffer through, go check it out. A more refined version will be on our YouTube channel. And of course, you'll always have the audio version of to cherish for ever.
