#NuNews: Portal Punch and a Pint

 

Xbox buying Konami? At least that's the latest rumor... 

 

We expected more movement on the game play charts, but it remains underwhelming. Mafia: Definitive Edition stumbles on the One X, and Ubisoft is absolutely killing it this generation with 6 franchises reaching over 10 million copies sold. 

We also cover all the games being optimised for the Series X! It's getting so close, we can taste it! 

 

Minecraft Dungeons is released and Lee can not wait to play. If this episode is shorter than normal, we can all blame him for rushing off. Oh, and now you can punch Robocop in Mortal Kombat 11, go fishing in Ultimate Fishing Simulator and punch a portal in Georifters... 

 

Thanks for listening! We will see you all on Xbox Live.

#GameFace! Let’s Not Shoot Dad

 

#GameFace! has a special announcement this week! 

The announcement of our Community Event Calendar. Or what we like to call our Community Calendar. 

 

We now have one place where you can see everything we have planned for the year. So check it out on our Patreon Page and join in all the events. 

 

And now, onto the games... 
Lee has decided to play ALL the games... Again! From racing cars, to surviving the nuclear apocalypse and even going back in time, Lee has played it.

Kyle rages about Minit, gets excited about The Division 2 and tells everyone to play Astroneer. Seriously, play Anstroneer!

Simone goes way back west, plays some live shows and even shoot some Covenant. And we get a long awaited update on Stardew Valley! 

 

Thanks for listening! We will see you all on Xbox Live.

Real news by real people. Thats our guarantee!

 

Join Kyle and Lee as they discuss every single game that was shown off on Inside Xbox. Xbox Live and Game Pass numbers get revealed Star Wars Battlefront 2 gets a fantastic update, XCloud is coming to Game Pass and we even take a shallow dive into the history of Assassin's Creed Valhalla. 

 

We even cover Microsoft's plans to build an Azure Data Center in New Zealand and what that means for us.

#NuNews: Screenshot The Screw

 

We're recording this by ourselves... Let's see how this goes!

 

In this episode, we cover a bunch of people who have left other game studios and moved to the super secretive The Initiative. There is a pattern emerging, and it seems its good news for Team Green. Monster Hunter: World gets an update, and Lee forgets to mute his laptop, Apex Legends gets an awesome looking short story movie, and Saints Row: The Third goes up for digital pre-order. 

 

Prepare for the new games as we have half a list for you, including a new dating sim - Arcade Spirits! Now you can date like its 1980 all over again! 

 

Don't forget, we stream our recordings live every Tuesday at 7PM NZST only on Mixer
