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!

ESRB Will Add Label, We Play Keep Talking & Nobody Explodes – (Ep. 14)

Show Notes

It’s Third Player Games Podcast time! In this week’s episode, we keep it short and sweet! The ESRB is adding labels for “In Game Purchases.” We also talk about the many games we’ve been playing, some old school, some new school and some that are right in the middle. The new Overwatch character Brigitte has been announced, Sony is doubling down on First-Party Games and the PSN Plus this month is amazing!

In addition to all that we talk about a game that everyone can have fun with, even non-gamers, Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes. Also, we have a bit of an announcement at the end of this week’s show, the next couple of episodes will be wildly different to past weeks.

Fe Review & Upcoming Video Games In March – Third Player Games Podcast (Ep. 13)

Show Notes

Hey there everyone! In the 13th episode of Third Player Games podcast, we are back at in our corners of the world. We might be separate, but our audio is back to its high quality form! This week is light on news, some of it is not your normal headlines, what can we say it was a quiet week. We do have our end of the month segment where we give you the preview for March’s upcoming video games!

We also have What’s That Video Game and it’s a rare occasion where Josh can’t get points, mainly because he’s the host. Josh and Amy have apparently put together their own computer! With this comes some possibilities, including a potential Third Player Games Sea of Thieves run! Our biggest segment this week is one of the best reviews of a game we’ve heard in a long time. This one is for the video game Fe and it’s been done by our very own Amy Rose in our rotating segment!

Chris realized something was wrong with his hand while playing Switch. Turns out he had a tumor in his left hand. Now he’s using a customized grip that someone on Reddit offered to create for him with a 3D printer so that he can play one handed while recovering from surgery.
