#237: XO18 eXcitement!

00:0000:00

Do you like the new news, like Lee likes the nu-news?

Well you're in luck! This episode is news from start to finish. Everything Xbox announced at XO18 is discussed and dissected by our panel of judges - those being Kyle and Lee of course. 

 

XO18 took place in Mexico City and was chockfull of announcements - from new studios joining the Microsoft family, to updates and expansions for existing games, and even a bucket load of games coming to Game Pass. 

 

We even take a deepish dive into the tech behind Crackdown 3 and what it means for the future of Xbox and gaming.

 

Also, remember to take a photo of you gaming with a buddy and hashtag it #GiveWithXbox!

And now for something, completely the same. 

 

Exactly the same, except Lee has decided to play *all* the games! From Battlefield 1 to Fallout 4, Gears of War to Fallout 76. And almost everything in-between. We hear Lee's trepidation at Fallout 76, and who can blame him? Kyle wonders how Sea of Thieves remains so vague with their quest giving, but still gets so excited about Gears of War 4. 

 

For new games, we get a Grip on Hitman 2, MechaNika and Scalextrix. So many new games this week! Steel Rats tries to take the title for the most buzz words used in a game description. 

 

Big game news was teased for XO18 and we are beyond hyped! And Red Dead has earned all the money in the world. Thats it. No more money. We can all go home...

Better late than never, right? 

 

This is out Shocktober But For Realsies episode. Or at least it would have been, if the game devs decided to come out and play. In stead, its a pretty normal week with only two 'scary' games launching, and most Halloween themed things taking place in games... 

 

Joined by our spare warm corpse, Jeremy (due to Lee being slack), Simone is back at Red Dead Redemption (the first one) and she entertains us with some fantastic stories. And Kyle has a horror story about his Xbox One X... 

 

This is our very normal, Halloween episode, that might not be very Halloween-y. But who cares, because we still have fun! Yay!

#234: My Gun Is My Passport

00:0000:00

Simone's inner cowboy has come out, and his name - John Marston. 

 

Thats right - Read Dead Redemption 2 has come out, so we're celebrating the best way working gamers do - by playing through our backlog. It just happens that Red Dead Redemption is the one Simone is enjoying at the moment! 

 

And since we're so close to Halloween, we have a very normal Shocktober Episode for you here. To keep with the theme (and because as the memo writer, he's the only one to get the memo...) Kyle played Manual Samuel - a fantastic little game that's on Game Pass at the moment. 

 

We go over the few games that have decided to come out on the same week as RDR2, those brave souls. 

 

In the news, Kyle goes on a rant about the new avatars, Game Pass gets some Halloween themed games, The Orange Box gets a 4K makeover on the One X and  Battlefield 5 lets you play as a Nazi? Whaaa? 

 

All this, and more on this weeks episode of The Xboxcast.

#233: The Xboxcast & Jeremy

00:0000:00

Simone is being slack. So lets talk to Jeremy! 

And what should we talk about? I am glad you asked. 

 

Forza Horizon 4! 

 

Its not like any other games exist right about now... 

We dive into some cool Forza stats, and spend way to long going on about the drifitng and the sound of crashing into the walls. Its great!

 

And then as per usual, its new games, some gaming news - like For Honor getting a really pretty graphics update - and giving Jeremy a very hard time. But don't worry. He gives it right back.

#232: WARFACE!

00:0000:00

In case you haven't heard, Warface is coming to Xbox One... After coming to Xbox 360 in 2013. Its ok, we don't understand either. 

 

Simone is still Red Deading it up, Lee has finished the Forsaken story, and all three of us are still only slightly obsessed with Forza Horizon 4. 

 

Call of Duty: Black Ops Quadruple I is here to crush what remains of PUBG, and it brings a heap of ID@Xbox friends along. There really is something for everyone this week. 

 

What has really gotten us excited this week is the news of Project xCloud - the new game streaming project Microsoft announced. We talk the possible tech behind this and what ot means for the game industry while rumors of Obsidian being sold to Microsoft are flying about. And to add a cheery to the tip of this wek - Forza Horizon 4 is the fastest selling game of the series so far! 

 

(You really should be playing it buy now!)

With the smell of petrol in the air, and the arrival of cars that cost more than your house, we can safely assume its Forza season! 

Thats right, Forza Horizon 4 has arrived, and its even on GamePass on Day 1! You have no excuse for not playing it. 

 

In this very special normal episode, join Kyle and Lee as they talk about their experience in what is the arguably the best racing game ever made. 

Did they enjoy it? What was good? What was great? And what blew the doors off? 

 

This is our Forzathon. A semi deep dive into the Forza Horizon 4 experience
