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!

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!
