#209: Sandwich Mode

00:0000:00

Simone entertains us with even more Fable fables, Kyle takes us on his Sea of Thieves adventures and Lee struggles with news, in what is probably our most profressional episode ever. 

 

Playstation console exclusive Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice comes to Xbox, with Xbox One X support in tow, Doom is coming with a 4K patch and Xbox is having another sale. We take a trip down memory lane and discuss the legendary Duke controller as well. 

 

But all the news is drowned out over the tidal success of Sea of Thieves and Lee fills us in on some really impressive stats. 

 

And as a side note - Farcry 5 is being released this week. 

 

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

 

Please remember to like and share!

You're welcome.  

 

Apart from being pirates, we listen to Simone's continued trials and tribulations in Fable 2, The Xboxcast's Gears of War 4 event and even Kyle's take on Surviving Mars. Thats right, this week was a week full of gaming for our hosts - truely a rare occasion.

Now with 100% more stories about Fable II!

 

With a bunch of new games that are lauching, or have launched, this week, we get stuck talking about Surviving Mars and how hyped Kyle is (but isn't he always hyped?) and Vicious Attack Llama Apocalypse gets everyone quite excited again. 

 

Xbox unveiled the world's first Priate Blaster, PUBG gets some future planning, Everspace goes full 4K and the adorable PixARK gets shown to the world. Lee goes down the rumor rabbit hole and starts randomly listing games that might or might not be shown at E3 or might even not be real at all. We even go over the console gaming numbers for 2017, and some of those will surprise you. 

 

In Xboxcast News, we have hit over 500 listens under 2 months, and just want to thank you guys for joining us. You're welcome to give feedback on Twitter, Facebook, our website and even on the PodBean comments. In celebration, we have a Looking For Group event in our Xbox Live Group. So if you own Gears of War 4, feel free to jump in. If not, we're sure Lee will stream it. Check the Club for futer infomation.

A Conversation With Josh

The Xboxcast Present: A Conversation With Josh

 

For our March Special, we chat to Josh, who is long time friend of Jordan, and certainly knows his stuff.

 

Josh is super knowledgeable about all things gaming, and it was a pleasure to talk to him. From Elite Dangerous, Monster Hunter World, For Honor and Halo, we cover exactly how many hours he's played. And lets just say that you will be surprised. And jealous. He's inspired at least one member of The Xboxcast to devote more time to crashing spaceships in Elite Dangerous. 

 

Josh comes all the way from Wellington and you can stalk him on Xbox Live at Srgnt Kingsley.

Nah ah, you're a stupid clown wizard! 

 

In what has been the quietest week ever for Xbox news, we have all decided that we really like games. And so we played a bunch of different ones! Simone has started Fable 2, Kyle decided to play Batman Arkham Knight and even Lee, much to everyone's surprise, started 2 news games - GTA V and Super Lucky's Tale. Want to hear what we thought of these games? Well listen and find out.

 

Adding to that we discuss Mixer's new controller sharing feature, what to expect from Bethesda at E3 and how many hours the oldies are playing a week. Surprise of the week goes to 3D Realms releasing a new game - Ion Maiden. We also talk about The Darwin Project and other games that came out this week.

#205: Lightning VS Cloud

00:0000:00

We're trying to make sense of Lee. But it seems impossible. Can you help? 

 

This week Xbox 360 versions of The Witcher 2, Crackdown (which is 11 years old), Fable and Forza Horizon (yes, the original) got enhanced for the One X, which is pretty amazing, and they are looking better than ever. 

 

We go over the best selling games of January and number 10 will underwhelm you, Ubisoft is making all the right moves, Burnout Paradise is getting remastered and Destiny 2 gets an update. We also have a donate button on our website and stickers!

 

But possibly the most exciting thing for this week is that Rare is immortalising players' most memorable achievements in Sea of Thieves and doing a fantastic job of it. 

 

This is a full on week for news and excitement and so far one of our best episodes (no bias at all here).
