#313: NuNews For April 22nd

 

Get Over Here!

Thats right - Mortal Komat 11 is ready to satisfy all your fighting needs. 

 

All the news is being horded for E3, so don't blame us for a super efficient episode... 

The Game Play chart has finally bored Lee. Its finally happened. There is not much rejoicing to be done. Final Fantasy X and X-2 are not Xbox One X Enhanced but they are? Its all very confusing. We go through the best Game Pass games, Ubisoft donates money to Notre Dame and Stardew Valley is getting an update! 

 

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

#308 - GameFace! Fun Numptys

Have you joined the official Xboxcast True Achievements Leaderboard? Now is your time to shine! 

 

Kyle has played the worst game in the world. So much so that its now even on YouTube for you guys to endure. Its so bad. Like its just the worst. Arrrrgghhh... 
Lee has decided to PLAY ALL THE GAMES for our April Achievement Challenge - from BLOPS4 to Life is Strange. He must be feeling the pressure now. In more joyful news, Simone has The Best (TM) Stardew Valley stories to entertain us. Seriously, may she never finish this game because its just too good! 

 

Thank you all for listening! Don't forget to yell out to us on Twitter, Patreon and Facebook. We love hearing from you and would love to hear where in the world you are!

 

All this excitement and more on GameFace!

#312: NuNews For April 15th

Come on down to the barber where you can get a haircut and a beer, while you play Xbox! 

Is he here? Only in our news stories... And our dreams. 

 

With Notre Dame tragically burning down, Assassins Creed Unity finally has a use. And that is to rebuild the iconic landmark. Phil Spencer was seen playing Destiny 2 on his one private XCloud server, Lee completely forgets about the game play charts, Xbox is making (small) waves in Japan and GamePass has become even better with the addition of Monster Hunter: World and a golf game... 

 

If you feel like being overrun by zombies, World War Z has all the ZoS (Zombies on Screen) you could ever need and Final Fantasty X and X-2 are finally on Xbox! And there was much rejoicing. Until Lee tries to explain the rules of snooker to Kyle. But Kyle is not interested due to the extremally low ZoS score.

#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.

 

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