#GameFace! Dead People Don’t Pay Taxes

 

With Kyle still suffering a broken thumb, its up to Lee and Simone to have a game off! 

 

Lee is building his house in Minecraft, and getting distracted with the mining part. Simone is becoming a city planner in Cities: Skylines. It seems this is the week for building! 

But thats not all - Lee has jumped into the Ghost Recon: Breakpoint beta and has an interesting review of it while Simone has discovered the awesome Creature in the Wall, thanks to Game Pass. And Kyle even has some thoughts on it. 

 

And now we're gearing up for #terrorTober. Not sure what that is? Check out our Patreon...

#328: NuNews for September (So Far)

After a week off, Lee has his husky voice on. We hope you like it. 

 

Since we missed the last week's episode, we have a lot to update you guys on. From watching the Game Play charts jump around - thanks to the monster that is Gears 5 - to testing out the latest update of the Xbox dashboard. Then we have realistic fishing sims creeping up on us to boot. What a wild ride. 

 

Speaking of rides, two new games to keep an eye on is Truck Driver and Bus Simulator. You'll be piloting your very own big rigs in no time. Along with helping folks get around a city. So really - win win! 

 

Be sure to join us on Patreon and Discord as we gear up for #terrorTober...

#327: NuNews for September 2nd

Gears POP! has exploded onto the scene with over a million players in just a week.

But already the servers are experiencing some issues...

 

Welcome to this week's episode of #NuNews. And we kick off with seeing one of our own fallen in battle... Kyle has broken his thumb and had his Xbox One X succumb to the RMA gods... But now onto the real news! 

 

Telltale is back, sorta. Forza 6 is driving into the sunset. Capcom has a new Resident Evil game coming. And Forza Horizon 4 celebrates 12 million players! 

For the new games, we have Gears 5 leading the charge in big names (and have you seen those review scores!), Final Fantasy VIII Remastered is a blast from the past, Monster Hunter: World goes frosty in Iceborne, NBA 2K20 shoots some hoops and Creature in the Well pinballs its way on your Xbox and into our hearts.  

 

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