#303 - GameFace! Rocket League Edition

GAMEFACE! 

Remember our "What Have We Been Playing?" section? Or our "Games Played This Week"? Or as Lee put it "So what have you been playing Kyle?"

No? Ok, never mind! Onwards. 

 

Strap in for this episode, as the entire Xboxcast have managed to find themselves addicted (or at least playing excessively) Rocket League! From Kyle driving into Lee, to Lee swearing at Kyle, and Simone yelling at everyone, much fun was had and we even have proof on Mixer! Simone is still struggling to satisfy the aliens in Stardew Valley (I thought this was a farming game?), Kyle and Lee did their first Destiny Nightfall together - which is a cause for celebration, and Lee has even played the indie game of the year - Celeste. What did he think about it? You'll just have to listen to find out. 

 

All this and more on this episode of GameFace!

Welcome to Nu News - a new series from The Xboxcast.

Nu News show cases all the Xbox news you need to know about for the week past. That covers the News part of Nu News, so whats this magical Nu? Thats for all the Nu games coming out (or have come out) for the week! And together we have Nu News!

 

 

This week we want to clothe ourselves in Xbox Onesies, we're sad about at least one game leaving Xbox Game Pass, but manage to console ourselves with a few new games coming to Xbox Game Pass! Final Fantasy IX has arrived on Xbox & Windows 10 and Crackdown 3 gives everyone a brand new bonus pack for free. Daddy Duck says "Quack! Quack!"  

 

On the releases, we have a small game, you may have heard of - Anthem! Be sure to tune into a future episode of GameFace! to hear Lee talk all about it... Looks like this could very well be the new Destiny.

 

Kyle and Lee go over all this and more on this week's episode of Nu News!
