The Honest Gaming Podcast - S2 EP1 - New Format, Nindie Showcase and Halo Master Chief Rumours.

 

- Welcome to the first episode of The Honest Gaming Podcast VERSION 2.0! Joining me for today is Bonnie. As this is the first episode of “Season 2”, I’ll just remind you all at how this is going to go down:

  • What we’ve been playing this week! Featuring, Mad Max, Stardew Valley, Pokemon: Let’s Go Eevee, and GTA V.

  • The week’s news that we’ve found interesting/mildly annoying! Fallout 76’s newest venture into messing itself up, Nintendo Nindie Showcase and the games that were announced and released, Hbomberguy and his DK64 stream, and Halo Master Chief Collection with the PC rumours that seem to be going around.

  • Upcoming games of the following week that we are looking forward to!

Thanks again to Bonnie for putting up with my rambling, and thanks to you for listening to this new version of our podcast. Thanks for listening (and reading)!

The Honest Gaming Podcast - Episode 3 - Nindie Showcase, Various leaks, and Game Announcements.

 

 - Welcome to the third episode of The Honest Gaming Podcast! Joining me for this episode is Matt from UGNN. Like I have mentioned in the other 2 podcasts, it is going to turn into a running joke that I can't get all 4 guests on at the same time... This episode is no different as because of weather issues, 1 guest couldn't make it. This meant that today I was joined solely by Matt. Maybe next week, it'll just be me talking to myself... Anyway, today we talked about quite a lot including:

  • Various brand new game announcements, including Minit, Shape of the World, Satisfactory, Genesis Alpha One, and more!
  • Bloody microtransactions and rubbish collector's editions...
  • Lots of leaks including Star Wars Battlefront 4 (2006), Call of Duty MW2 Remaster, Kingdom Hearts worlds, and the Jurassic World Evolution release date.
  • The upcoming Nindies Showcase, and what we think should be included.
  • BAFTA Game Nominations...

I would just like to say a final thank you to Matt for putting up with my rambling, and be sure to check out his site for various news, reviews and other stuff!

 

The Honest Gaming Podcast - Episode 2 - Nintendo Direct, Microtransactions, and Sex Dolls...

 

 - Welcome to the second episode of The Honest Gaming Podcast! Joining me for this episode is A.J from Video Chums, and Amy from NindieNexus. If you listened to the previous podcast, you will know how there were quite a few problems that had to be fixed for future episodes. Well I'm happy to announce that this episode was nearly perfect...I just need to sort out my planning and edit down a lot of the news to fit into the 2 and a half hour time-slot. Anyway in today's episode we talked about:

  • Updates to various games including Rocket League, Fortnite, and Kingdom Come Deliverance.
  • Mods that have taken the news spotlight over the past week.
  • Far Cry 5 detailed to oblivion.
  • NINTENDO DIRECT!
  • Sex Dolls...
  • And microtransactions!

I would just like to say a final thank you to A.J and Amy for putting up with my rambling, and be sure to check out both of their sites for various news and other stuff! Hopefully next week will just be a little more organised!

 

The Honest Gaming Podcast - Episode 1 - PILOT

 

- Welcome to the first episode of The Honest Gaming Podcast! Joining me for this first gander is Matt from UGNN, and Bonnie from NindieNexus. As this is the Pilot episode, this will be where we work out of the kinks and problems...professionalism! Anyway, in this episode we talked about "most" of the news concerning the Switch, PC, Xbox, and PlayStation. Some of this news included:

  • Lots of game announcements and updates
  • Bethesda announces their E3 Showcase date and time
  • ESRB to label in-game purchases on future titles
  • Various video-game TV adaptations
  • Nintendo and their stupid, weird policies
  • And a very speedy look at upcoming releases on all platforms

Now going on to problems that I encountered during this first episode! Firstly I am, from now on, going to enable "push-to-mute" instead of push to talk, and I will also enable the feature on the recording, not just Discord... Another problem was the organisation towards the end. I now know how long it takes to compile the news of the day and so now I can plan accordingly. Also at the end...BLOODY SKYPE; I need to remember to turn of all desktop and application sounds... Other than that, I think the stream went quite well and I can't thank Matt, Bonnie and Kevin (Moderator) enough for tackling the first episode in this podcast series. Hopefully all of the issues in this Pilot will be non-existent in next weeks episode!
