We are that profesh! From The Outer Worlds getting confused with The Outer Wilds to Keanu Reeves appearing in Cyberpunk 2077 and even some Halo Infinite tease, we have all the news as it happened with our thoughts. And there's even some talk of Next-Gen...

#318: NuNews For June 3rd

 

Xbox games coming to Steam, GamePass coming to PC, cats and dogs living together! What is this? Only the best universe of course.

 

Thats not even all we have for you! Watchdogs 3 leaks, Baldur's Gate 3 teased, oh my! Looks like the news is ramping up as E3 comes ever closer. And speaking of E3 , we also have a ton of news about that for you. 

 

In a world first, Kyle does the new games with a positive spin. Take that everyone who was playing the Pixel Art Drinking Game!

#311 - GameFace! The Cat Does Care!

What a packed #GameFace! we have for you guys. 

Lee gives us some golf tips from his time spent with Golf 2019 PGA Awesome Tiger Woods Edition, beats his kids at Halo 2 and surprise, surprise, plays more Division 2... Shocked Pikachu gif. Kyle jumps into Forza Horizon 3, continues with Mass Effect: Andromeda, and has a very rough time with Sea of Thieves. Simone has a small update on Stardew Valley. And no, she still does not have the purple pants! These things are mythical at this stage... 

 

We are now live streaming our podcast recordings, so if you want to come watch us live, be sure to follow our Mixer page. We typically record on Tuesdays at 19:00 NZST. And don't forget to join our #Discord! Oh, and have you joined the official Xboxcast True Achievements Leaderboard? In fact, join all our things. And become a Patreon while you're at it. 

 

All this excitement and more on GameFace!

#317: NuNews For May 27th

 

After what seems like a super long week, we're suffering from some serious low energy vibes... But that won't stop us giving you all the #NuNews you know and love. 

 

Lee confuses himself with the Game Play Chart, first wanting to go forwards, then backwards, then jump around, jump around, jump up and get down! The Division 2 is not going to lower its difficulty, we just have to get gud. Ubisoft leaked their plans for Ubisoft Pass Premium, although uPass would have been a much cooler name. XCloud is getting a whole lot of info before E3 and we have at least three stories about Gears of War. 

 

We try to do the new games, it becomes a lesson in cricket - the sport, not the animal. We get scared in Layers of Fear 2 and then super excited about Outer Wilds. Did you know that if you watched something on Mixer at some point in the past, you probably own Outer Wilds? We didn't either! But its Game Pass on release day, so who cares! Go play it. Right meow! 

 

And we even brought back the beer segment for you guys.

We hope to be educational as well as funny, and getting beer right is a lot easier than getting news right.

#316: NuNews For May 20th

Microsoft and Sony working together at long last! It's less exciting than you think. Even though the PlayStation division had to be calmed. And now Nintendo is jumping on the band wagon too. 

 

We have a leak about Xbox's E3 keynote, Activision hands over the reigns to Call of Duty, Game Pass is losing 18 games and The Division 2's eight man raid has finally been beaten on consoles. And on top of all of this, Microsoft has shown us Minecraft Earth and we're totally not worthy.  

 

New games are coming fast and furious this week, with Team Sonic Racing leading the charge, but we're more excited about Dauntless. On the other side of the scale, we're less than excited for Back to 1995. But hey, we're not exactly game critics. 

 

We live stream every episode now on The Xboxcast's Mixer page. We're live on Tuesdays, 7PM New Zealand time. Join us and be a part of the next episode. 

And join our #Discord server!

#315: NuNews For May 13th

 

This episode fills us with Rage! Rage 2 that is. Which is now out to some very interesting reviews... 

 

Gears 5 has leaked - well just the box art and the release date, and we can't say we're impressed. More devs are joining The Initiative. Monster Hunter World gets all frosty. More games are becoming Epic Store exclusives, and we're not cut up about it at all. And it looks like Anthem burned EA in more ways we could imagine. 

 

This episode was live streamed on Mixer by the request of our fans. Want to join in next time? Check out The Xboxcast's Mixer page. We're live on Tuesdays, 7PM New Zealand time. 

 

So what are you waiting for? Jump on in. Oh and join our #Discord server!
