#340: The Xboxcast Game Awards for 2019

Its the show you've been waiting for. The last official episode of the year and we're presenting the 3rd annual Xboxcast Game Awards! 

 

Like any typical award show, the categories are made up and the points don't matter. With that in mind we don't have a clear winner or loser, or even nominations. We go purely by personal preference. Because that way, we can't be wrong! Its a complete win-win situation.

 

 

Our categories are on our Patreon page and our Discord. Which means you can't blame us if yours didn't win. Or even get mentioned. 

 

Thank you guys for listening. Its been a pleasure to have you along for the ride! We hope to see you all in 2020 with even better, funnier and many more stories about our gaming adventures. Or lack thereof.

 

Until then, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

 

We'll see you all on Xbox Live!

#339: NuNews for December 3rd

We're gearing up for our very own Game Awards show! And you get to chime in.

Head on over to our Patreon page for more info... 

 

Its been a really quiet week on the news front, with everyone holding off on end-of-year announcements till the televised Game Awards. But that wont stop us! From State of Decay 2 to Halo: Reach, we're talking about Microsoft games coming to Steam. Along with some really exciting Games with Gold news that we're sure will excite the 10 year old within us!

 

And then we have a massive list of games coming out this week. The biggest one being Halo: Reach! And the excitement is palpable. Often heralded as the second best Halo game, its now finally here and finally part of The Master Chief Collection. We couldn't be more excited! Neverwinter Nights comes back in an Enhanced Edition, Kerbals get more toys to play with in Kerbal Space Program's DLC - Breaking Ground and we're enthralled with Arise: A Simple Story. My Friend Pedro has also jumped on this hype train. 

 

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

#GameFace! Simone’s Secret Jedi Power

 

A little Star Wars game was released and our very favourite game reviewer has been playing it! 

Thats right, Simone reviews Jedi: Fallen Order. 

 

Lee managed to get into the West of Dead Beta and gives us his thoughts on that, which makes it sound harder than it is. It can't be that difficult, can it? Its not like its a Souls game...

 

Meanwhile, Kyle has decided to up his completion ratio. Why? We don't even know. But it did lead to getting 30 achievements in one Sunday, and even going back to the OG Destiny. You have never heard a happier Lee... 

 

And apparently Old Man's Journey is better than ABZU according to the resident achievement hoarder... Which means, of course, we had to check it out. Can it live up to the hype? 

 

Join us as we gear up for The Xboxcast Game Awards for 2019! Find it on our Patreaon page and give us your thoughts! Use the hashtag #TXCGA19 to get in on the action!

#338: NuNews For November 26th

The stores are starting to play Christmas music, so you know what that means? 

Another 'Game Awards' show! And this time, you're invited to our party!

 

Xbox 360 and Xbox One had birthdays recently which leads us to ask "When will the 360 die?" Playground Games might have given us a glimpse into Fable 4, but all we can do is wait. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare seems to be divisive, and even more so with its new patch. And Logitech comes to the party with a toolkit for the Xbox Adaptive Controller. Good on ya, mate! 

 

Golazo leads our new releases for what is a quiet week. Where The Water Tastes Like Wine has us enthralled with its art style, again! (It was pushed back for some reason) And Mowin' & Throwin' seems like an amazing party game you'll want to get your friends around for. Also, did you know Lee hates rhythm games? We didn't... 

 

Now, onto the excitement - The Xboxcast Game Awards 2019 - we have a post on our Patreon page where we tell you the categories. And we're letting you suggest new categories or games! Be sure to check it out and have your say. It may even end up in our Game Awards episode (Coming Soon).
