#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! 

 

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

#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!

#314: NuNews For The Fortnite

Two weeks worth of #NuNews? Lets do this!

 

Anthem might be less annoying now, according to Lee. Mixer is giving away free Sea of Thieves Loot. Microsoft is worth one trillion dollars <insert DrEvil pinky gif>. And XCloud reached the take home milestone causing the abundance of cake. All this exciting news, and yet, we somehow spend time trying to describe some third party Xbox controller concept. No one ever said we were logical, after all.

 

And when it comes to Games with Gold and the new games coming out, well, to say we are underwhelmed would be right on the money. But Final Fantasy XII (thats eleven for the normal folk) did come out which is awesome! 

 

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

#309 - GameFace! Generic Jedi

 

With the April Achievement Challenge coming to a close, the race is heating up. This causes lee to jump into every single game he owns and even buy a few bad ones... And because of this, this podcast becomes a monster - running for over 2 hours for the live stream. hopefully Producer Paul has managed to cut it down to a more resonable length... 

 

From Monster Hunter: World to Star Wars Battlefront II, this episode is jam packed with good games, bad games, ok games and game games. 

 

We are now live streaming our podcast recordings, so if you want to come watch us live, be sure to follow our YouTube 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!
