Battlefield V Reveal & Pikmin Retro Rewind (Ep. 26)

Show Notes

In the 26th episode of Third Player Games Podcast, we dive into the controversy that was the Battlefield V reveal. The gang quickly moves on to happier times though leading into an Amy hosted What’s That Video Game. This week the gang has not one, but two rotating segments! First up is the preview of games in June! A lot of ports on this list, Wolfenstein II, Crash Bandicoot, but we also have one of Jeffers most anticipated games of the year, indie title Vampyr! At the end of the podcast, Third Player Games wraps up with a Retro Rewind segment, this time the name of the game is Pikmin!

Towards the Pantheon Review, Xbox’s New Controller, and Nubbl (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 (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?
