#GameFace! Speed Friend

The one that made us famous! 

Listen closely, and you'll hear a real life gun shot in this episode. Luckily no one was hurt. 

 

The #purplePants are back! Simone gives us our much needed update on Stardew Valley and we're still amazed at how this game continues to exist. She's also played Jedi: Fallen Order and in a revelation might actually be able to play a Dark Souls type game... Find out what Simone and Kyle think about the latest Star Wars outing.  

 

Lee has managed to win a copy of Need For Speed: Heat, only to find its not really the new hotness he was hoping for. What makes it so bad? No one knows... 

 

And then ewe're back to the 'normalities' of Sea of Thieves and its treasure losing ways, getting spaced in The Outer Worlds and grinding up the Swarm in Gears 5, which all of us are slightly disappointed in... 

 

Join us as we gear up for The Xboxcast Game Awards for 2019! Find it on our Patreaon page and give us your thoughts!

#337: XO19 & NuNews - Together At Last

Simone's #purplePants story is now famous! 

Missed the how and why? You'll just have to listen... 

 

And thats not even all! We covered XO19 which has been called "better than E3" and "exciting" and "bold". In fact one quote was even "you guys should totally listen to #theXboxcast because they are great!" And who are we to argue? Even if we did make up 90% of those quotes! It didn't stop us from having a special panel - made up of Kyle, Lee and Producer Paul - to go over all the excitement of XO19. So much news... Its almost too much. 

 

But we still did some normal news and some normal nu-games! 

 

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

#336: NuNews for November 12th

Lee and Paul take over #NuNews to give Kyle and Simone a much needed break. 

 

All the pre-hype about XO19 is here! Listen now and see how much we got right, and how much we got wrong. Disney+ is coming to Xbox and we go over how to get it. And if you're one of the few people who don't have GamePass yet, well here is an offer you can't refuse. 

Could Fortnite be in trouble? People are spending less on the micro-transactions than they used to... Maybe the titan will fall? And now your Xbox will suggest things to play! The robots are here and they just want you to have fun. See, Terminator, its not that bad! 

 

Let us know what you thought of this episode over on Twitter.

#335: NuNews For November 5th

 

Do you have the need? The need for speed? And can you stand the heat? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you're in luck - Need For Speed Heat comes out this week. And even better for you, we take apart the flow chart EA provides on ways you can play! 

 

Blizzard unveils Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 while trying to take the heat off their pro-China scandal. Which would have worked if these games were coming any time soon... A Red Dead Redemption 2 feature ends up angering console gamers, and really, is it worth all the gnashing of teeth? We have some teases about Gears 6, which is nothing you didn't already know. And Xbox streaming to your phone is available to alpha testers! This is going to be awesome. 

 

Need for Speed Heat races into our lives, but can it race into our heart? We'll have to pump the brakes on that one, until we can see for ourselves. In the mean time, why not boogie on down with Just Dance 2020, slay some dragons in The Elder Scrolls MMO, beat up your friends with Tanky Tanks and experience the thrills and chills in Football Game.

#GameFace: #terrorTober Wrap Up

 

That it. Its all done. #terrorTober has come and gone. We can all return to normal heart rates again...

 

Without a doubt, Simone 'won' this years #terrorTober - she actually managed to finish her chosen game and get a little creeped out by it. Lee spent an hour with three games, and Kyle actually stuck around in Blair Witch for 12 hours, before nope-ing out of there. But how and why and what did we think of our games? You'll just have to listen to find out. Thanks to everyone else who took part and joined us in our time of need! 

 

We'll be releasing our The Outer Worlds review soon! So stay tuned for that. 

 

Thanks to @AmyBakerness for the nice and shiny new logo and @Matt for the awesome #terrorTober header!

#334: NuNews For October’s End

 

You don't need any kind of access to jump into this episode! 

 

XboxAll Access is back and it comes with a path to Scarlett when it launches. Oh, and its now available in Australia! So all our mates across the ditch can jump on board getting themselves an Xbox super easy like. 

Lee has decided that The Outer Worlds and Fallout: New Vegas are linked. We don't really believe him, but maybe you do? And while he's talking about conspiracies, have you head about Overwatch 2? Apparently thats coming too! 

 

We're super hyped about Afterparty which has been released and come to Xbox Game Pass on release! So, maybe we'll dive into that at some point - just have to finish off a few more games quickly... A blast from the past with Super Monkey Ball has people hyped, and we don't know why. 

 

Thanks to @AmyBakerness for the nice and shiny new logo and @Matt for the awesome #terrorTober header!
