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!
