#NuNews: Lee is Here to Blow Your Mind

 

Get ready for Lee to blow your mind! 

Just in general though, nothing too specific. 

 

Microsoft is closing its stores, Facebook will not come to Xbox and we start gearing up for the Xbox July reveal! And we look at a great concept box for the Series X. You can't see it, but it looks really good. You'll just have to take our word for it. 

 

Kyle struggles to pronounce all the new game names. So many random letters all mushed together! You'll need metal ears for these names to make sense. These games are so confusing, we temporarily become a movie review podcast... 

 

Remember, we're streaming now on Twitch on Tuesday's at 7PM NZST.
Join us there to see all the behind the scenes and join us after the recording to chat and hang out.

#GameFace! Secret Feet

Months, secret feet and Pinterest?

What even is going on? 

 

With June ending, we wrap up #back2YourBacklog and go over how we didn't actually go back to our backlogs. Lee gave up on Jedi Fallen Order, Kyle went to Mass Effect and has still not completed it, Producer Paul actually played a game and Simone played 3 back log games! I think she is winning...

 

When was the last time you were faced with a Game Over screen? Kyle is shocked when it turns out that you can actually lose Frostpunk! But that shouldn't stop you from playing it - its such a pretty game. Lee managed to ignore his backlog completely and get sucked back into Destiny 2. Along with Minecraft Dungeons, Human Fall Flat and COD: Modern Warfare. 

 

Thanks go out to this months patrons on Patreon - you guys are awesome and allow us to keep doing what we do. 

 

How far did you get with #back2YourBacklog? Tell us on Twitter. 

Oh, and we're now streaming on Twitch, so be sure to follow along there!

#NuNews: The Mixer Fallout

After the Mixer shake up, we're excited to move to Twitch! 

Follow us there to catch all our podcast recordings and other fun things. We'll be doing another 100 follower celebration when we hit that mark. 

 

Join us as we take a deep dive into Mixer's demise and what the causes could be, along with all the news and new games that are coming this week. Brawlhalla returns to our game play chart, EA announces news stuff, and some PS5 games are coming to Xbox Series X. All in all, there is quite a lot to look forward for. 

 

Be sure to tune into our Twitch channel on Tuesday at 7PM NZST as we wrap up the #back2YourBacklog challenge, and have cake to celebrate our launch on Twitch. 

See you there!

#GameFace! #back2YourBacklog Update

 

Have you managed to stick with your #back2YourBacklog challenge? 

Or are you as distracted as we've been? 

 

Simone has changed her backlog game, Kyle has changed his backlog game and even Lee has... stuck with game he said he'd play! In a rare twist of events, Lee is the one keeping on track while Kyle and Simone have veered off on different tangents. 

 

Just what games are distracting us this week? 

 

In some exciting news - we now have merch!

Listen now to find out how you can get your hands on some sweet Xboxcast stickers!

#NuNews: Uncage The Wozan

 

Old games looking even better than before - thats the promise of the Series X. 

And from what we've seen, it sure looks like it delivers on that promise! 

 

From Xbox sales, to Game Play charts, to the new Store coming to Xbox consoles - we cover the past fortnight in Xbox news. A new Destiny 2 trailer has us thinking about going back even! Lee even breaks down what Smart Delivery is and how you'll be playing the best version of the game on the Series X. 

 

For our new games, we dive into cooking, go biking around France and uncage Wozans. What are Wozans? Well, you'll just have to listen to find out.

#GameFace! #back2YourBacklog Is Here

Welcome to June! And welcome to an excuse to jump back into your backlog! 

You're welcome. 

 

June is our #back2YourBacklog month - a month where we play games that we started and have not finished. You're invited to join us as we explore games we have forgotten, challenge yourself to finish them with us, and reduce our collective backlogs by at least one! 

 

Simone is undecided about Star Wars: Battlefront II or Final Fantasy XIII. Lee is undecided about Jedi: Fallen Order, Halo 2, Bioshock or Mass Effect. At least Kyle has decided on Assassins Creed: Black Flag for a very logical reason. 

 

Now it's your turn - tell us what game has you going #back2YourBacklog?

#NuNews: Portal Punch and a Pint

 

Xbox buying Konami? At least that's the latest rumor... 

 

We expected more movement on the game play charts, but it remains underwhelming. Mafia: Definitive Edition stumbles on the One X, and Ubisoft is absolutely killing it this generation with 6 franchises reaching over 10 million copies sold. 

We also cover all the games being optimised for the Series X! It's getting so close, we can taste it! 

 

Minecraft Dungeons is released and Lee can not wait to play. If this episode is shorter than normal, we can all blame him for rushing off. Oh, and now you can punch Robocop in Mortal Kombat 11, go fishing in Ultimate Fishing Simulator and punch a portal in Georifters... 

 

Thanks for listening! We will see you all on Xbox Live.
