Towards the Pantheon Review, Xbox’s New Controller, and Nubbl – Third Player Games Podcast (Ep. 25)

Show Notes

What’s Up Everybodyyy?? In this episode of Third Player Games Podcast, Josh picks up a couple of new games (well, new to him) and makes Jeffers proud. I know, finally, right?! There’s some brief rumblings about the awful news regarding the death of GCU, but let’s breeze past that for now and get to the fun stuff! Xbox announces their incredible new accessory, the adaptive controller, and we learn about a great place to meet more gamers (without even leaving your chair! Win-win!). Amy wraps things up with a review of a brand new indie game that you may not have heard of (Spoiler: you should check it out).

Light Fall, Virtual Console, & Great Protagonists in Video Games – Third Player Games Podcast (Ep. 24)

Show Notes

If this is your first time listening to us, let us introduce ourselves. We are three close friends who can’t help but get a little goofy at times. In a rare occurrence, all three of us completed a game this week and each of those games are worth recommending. Surprisingly, a game is coming out sooner than previously expected and, unsurprisingly, another video game is being turned into a film (this one will probably be great, right?… right?). Get ready to beat Jeffers and Amy at “What’s That Video Game?”, because they can’t win to save their lives (have you thought about writing in to tell us to stop playing this yet, by the way?). Also, stay tuned for a special segment about some video game protagonists that are near and dear to many of our hearts.

Upcoming May Games, Labo, Avengers: Infinity War (no spoilers!) – ThirdPlayerGames Podcast (Ep. 22)

Show Notes

In this episode of Third Player Games Podcast, Josh & Amy have fun with cardboard. That’s right, they got a Nintendo Labo! Better yet, they finished Hellblade! Jeffers isn’t here just for show though, this week he hosts What’s That Video Game! In news it’s rumored that the Playstation 5 might be here sooner than we think. Avengers Infinity War crushes the box office. Nintendo has a new President and the Fortnite comet is going to hit! The gang also has their monthly rotating segment of all the upcoming games for May 2018!

God of War, Celeste’s Impact, and a Flashback to the Past – Third Player Games Podcast (Ep. 21)

Show Notes

In this episode, Josh stumps everyone with a clever edition of What’s That Video Game. Jeffers dives into God of War while Josh and Amy pick up a few oldies, but goodies (as your mom would probably say). And finally, they introduced a brand new segment this week! In this week’s Retro Rewind Flashback to the Past thingy (working title), Jeffers challenges Josh and Amy to play a difficult classic SNES game for the first time and the gang discusses their experiences, along with some fun facts about the game. Can you guess what game they played?

Spider-Man/Spyro Release Details, Niantic Lawsuit + More! – Third Player Games Podcast (Ep. 19)

Show Notes

The release dates are out for Spider-Man and the Spyro Trilogy! Is anyone in the gang excited about this news? That’s a silly question. Amy breaks away from her newly discovered survival game to briefly ramble on about it before getting back to it. Jeffers finally finds a way to enjoy “What’s That Video Game”… by hosting! Josh has been doing a lot of digging this past week and has dug up a new game for himself (pun intended). Will Amy finally guess an answer to WTVG before Josh can? Will Third Player Games be able to contain themselves until all of the major game releases coming this Fall?? All this and more in the 19th episode of your favorite podcast.

Outlast Stream Recap, Sea of Thieves, Upcoming April Games – Third Player Games Podcast (Ep. 18)

Show Notes

What’sss up everybodyyyy? This week we discuss the games we finally got around to finishing (including a spooky game on the ThirdPlayerGames Twitch stream), dive into the news, and as always, “What’s That Video Game?”. It’s Josh’s turn to host, so maybe Amy and Jeffers can finally start to catch up in the scoreboard… maybe. To wrap it up, we look forward to upcoming April game releases. It got a little banana sandwich there at the end, but we’re all stronger for it… I think.

Amanda Farough Special Guest! – Third Player Games Podcast (Ep. 15)

Show Notes

In this episode Amy & Josh have abandoned the show, they left. Alright fine, they went on vacation. That’s okay though, Third Player Games Podcast has their first ever guest! She’s made a career writing about video games and entertainment. Intelligent, funny and knowledgeable, this is one podcast episode you don’t want to miss! The amazing Amanda Farough joins Jeffers Haile in a hilarious informative episode.

We have a huge news segment this week! Valve is back in town when it comes to making games, a PS4 exclusive game was delayed and a lot of fantastic news from the Nintendo Direct! Along with this, we get to hear how Jeffers almost lost his passion for video games, but one game, in particular, changed everything. Better yet, Amanda tells us how she started from the bottom of the internet writing pool, only to make herself into the success she is today. All the while she gives back to the “baby journalist” community!
