#311: NuNews For April 8th

 

Another week. Another #NuNews for you. And even more delicious live streams! 

 

This week Lee is disappointed in the game play charts, and Borderlands 3 looks like it is launching with crossplay! This is exciting and will be one of the first games to do so. Final Fantasy X and X-2 come to Xbox and there is even some Destiny 2 news, for those that were missing it. And to top it all off, Atari gets Lee all misty eye'd with its new console that may or may not be coming out sometime in our life time...

 

On the new game front, we have exploding butterflies in Flutter Bombs, people getting lawyer'd in Phoenix Wright and cook your perfect burger with Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!! 

 

All this and more on this week's episode of #NuNews!

#310: NuNews For April 1st

It may be April 1st, but there are no fools on this week's podcast! 

Well, maybe Lee..

 

Speaking of April Fools, a bunch of games are testing out "being funny" and leading the charge is Rainbow Six Siege with their Rainbow is Magic event! Everything is cute, cuddly and very, very pink. Perfect for inducing the rage you have hidden inside you. For Honor does one better and add Rabbids (those very strange rabbit creatures) into a sort of horde mode. Talk about nightmare fuel.

 

And prepare to go back to Pandora as Borderlands 3 got announced to much fanfare and excitement! And it looks fantastic. Also rumored to be funning at native 4K on the One X. Now thats impressive. 

 

In case you have been living under a rock, The Xboxcast has kicked off the first annual April Achievement Challenge. What is that? Firstly, listen to find out. Or go to our Patreon page - all the deets are there. Come join us, and battle for eternal bragging rights.

 

We're also trying out this whole Live Streaming thing on YouTube. But only Patrons will get access to the video afterwards.

#309: NuNews For March 25th

 

This is a very confused episode of NuNews.

We're so confused we even live streamed it to our YouTube channel using Lee's phone. You may want to check it out - Kyle was called the "Chris Evans of podcasting".

 

Apart from being confused, news is very Sea of Thieves heavy, because Kyle loves it still. We go over the trusted Xbox Gameplay Chart that Lee loves, welcome two new games to BackCompat, talk about new Game Pass games and even get really excited about the new trailer for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodline 2! 

 

In even more exciting news - Final Fantasty VII is coming to the Xbox this week! Oh man, we (Kyle) can hardly contain ourselves! Lee decides to get weirdly excited about Xenon Racer, but who can blame him?

 

All this and more on this week's episode of #NuNews!

What have we been playing for the last two weeks? The answer may, or may not, surprise you! 

But the answer is indeed very little. It seems we have hit that part of the year where real life is taking over... But we still have some fun stories from our wonderful Game Story Master - Simone! 

 

Simone has been playing Cities: Skylines and things don't seem to be going so well... But then do they ever? Kyle and Lee harp on about how difficult The Black Armory content in Destiny 2 is. Lee has spent way too much time in Anthem for it to be healthy. Kyle is really, super duper excited, in a big way, about Satisfactory (which you so totally have to check out!) and Lee gets really bored of The Sims 4. So much so that he leaves the room.
Bye Lee.

#308: NuNews For March 18th

With GDC kicking off, the news cycle is starting to kick off. Sorta. 

Maybe.

 

The big news this week is of course Google Stadia - the new game streaming service from Google that runs right in your browser. Hey, we never said it was a good idea either... And all this talk of game streaming prompts more details for XCloud to come out, and so far, its looking like Microsoft and Google are gearing up for the long fight. 

 

You can now, sort of, stream games from your PC to you Xbox. Halo MCC will share progress between PC and Xbox, but is still not a Play-Anywhere title, strangely enough. Xbox Game Pass is losing 4 games, while teasing newer, updated titles to come.  

 

In the Nu part this week, prepare to die many times in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and learn how to properly pronounce Tyd Wag Vir Niemand. 

 

All this and more on this week's episode of #NuNews!

#307: NuNews For March 11th

The mists are starting to clear, and out of the fog appears a brand new episode of NuNews! 

 

And boy do we have news. All the news from Inside Xbox along with the random news that pops up over the week. Halo on PC! Yes, you heard that right! Halo fans can rejoice as Halo: The Master Chief Collection is making its way to PC, allowing fans to finally Finish the Fight! And it doesn't stop there, Halo: Reach is coming to The MCC too! 

Xbox Game Pass is getting a new addition, One Piece has a brand new game, special sound on Xbox, and more! Oh my!

 

The launch titles should not leave a division in your mind on which ones to look forward to as The Division 2 launches. And we even get a little fancy with the beer. Sort of.
