#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!
