#326: NuNews for August 26th

 

Do you like new games? Because we have new games! 

 

This past week was an absolute cracker of a week for new game releases, with something for everyone! Want to get the pants scared off you? Try Blair Witch. Want to go back to the good ole days of Alan Wake and Quantum Break? Well Control has you covered. And thats only 2. So many more came out this week, we cant keep track of everything! 

 

Australia is banning We Happy Few (again). It seems like they have a problem over there. Gears Tactics coming to Xbox confirmed! Game Pass might be coming to all platforms. And prepare to jump into the Monster Hunter World: Iceborne beta.

 

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

#GameFace! Kyle’s Shocking Choice

A shocking revelation that threatens to tear The Xboxcast apart! 

Did Kyle make the right choice? What would you have done instead? 

 

Even more #back2YourBacklog talk on this episode of #GameFace! We cover the usual suspects - Mass Effect: Andromeda, Sea of Thieves and Destiny 2. But this week we reanimate State of Decay 2 as Simone goes through it, get down with Crackdown 3 and Lee's Division 2 talk doesn't do much to divide us. Guest appearances by Forza 6, Final Fantasy XV, Halo 2 and Forza Horizon 4 courtesy of Lee (of course). 

 

Now, we're not saying that you should check out our Mixer channel, but you really should. We have some exciting ideas for the 4th quarter that you may want to check out. And please don't forget to share, like, and join us on Patreon and Discord!

#325: NuNews Goes GamesCom

 

GamesCom was here! And while not as big as E3, its still choka full of exciting news!

So what are we waiting for? Get ready for a mammoth #NuNews! 

 

News Editor Lee had his work cut out for him this week, so things were spoken about as they happened. From new games coming to Game Pass to Gears POP! and Human Fall Flat DLC, we cover it all. New games announced, new DLC announced, Gears 5 announcements and Kerbal Space Program 2 landing soon! It was super exciting!

 

And thats not even the normal news, or new games coming out this week either! 

 

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

#324: NuNews for August 12th

You can now build computers on your Xbox. We truly are living in the future! 

PC Building Simulator has arrived on Xbox this week, to make all your virtual dream PC's come to life. 

 

Slay The Spire arrives and jumps straight onto GamePass. We have it on good authority that this may even be GotY... If you like rougelikes that is. If they are not your thing, maybe try a duck that bends gravity to its will? Or Stellaris's new expansion - Utopia! 

 

On the news side, things take a dramitic turn. Twitch is in hot water, for the umpteenth time this year, after turning Ninja's page into an advertisers nightmare. Phil Spencer thinks Mixer Pro being added to GamePass Ultimate makes perfect sense. Kotaku decides to burn the rest of its bridges with all gamers by telling them they aren't playing games right. And in what might be the biggest twist of the year, it seems that Death Stranding might be coming to Xbox!

#GameFace! *crickets*

Dear Super Sexy Patrons - we have not forgotten you! And to prove our love, we brought back the Patreon Shoutout. 

You may want to check where you rank! 

 

We're continuing with out #back2YourBacklog challenge - well Lee isn't. But Kyle and Simone are! What are you playing to help clear your backlog this August? Kyle is still stuck on Mass Effect: Andromeda, but managed to sneak some Rocket League in. Simone is dealing to zeds in State of Decay 2, and even has a quick Stardew Valley update for us! 

 

And Lee? Well he's just playing everything, but his most recent obsession is The Ashes. A game about cricket. A game that kept him up till 3 the next morning!  

 

We're doing an experiment on Mixer... So head over to our channel and give us feedback. And don't forget - we're live every Tuesday at 7PM NZST!

#323: NuNews for August 5th

 

Back to normal programming! And the GamePlay charts are looking extremely underwhelming... 

 

The biggest news this week is Ninja moving to Mixer! It has sent shock waves through the streaming community and a massive win for Microsoft. We look forward to what the future holds. But for now, we're happy to see Mixer in the limelight. 

 

GamePass adds new games, Games with Gold revealed which games we can look forward to in August, and No Man's Sky is getting another massive update. New games arrive this week with Planetfall from Paradox Interactive leading the charge, and the US President in a mech suit? Yeah, its one of those weeks! 

 

We now have email addresses! Its true. You can email us!

#322: NuNews for July 29th

Lee abandoned us. Well only for one episode... So Paul and Simone have stepped up to the plate. 

Will #NuNews be as good? Let's find out! 

 

August comes with a new challenge - we call it #back2YourBacklog - and the rules are simple. Choose a game you have started but never finished from your backlog and during August, go back to the game and finish it. Finish could be what ever you want it to mean - from the story to collectibles to even those sweet, sweet cheevos! 

 

Fortnite World Champs, Doom being pulled from backwards compatibility and Xbox Home Screen re-designs are coming! The news is exciting this week! As for new games - Madden 20 charges in, while Mutant Year Zero gets its first expansion. And Simone even knows what teenage friends look like!

 

 

And don't forget - we now have email addresses! Its true. You can email us!
