E3 Overview and Unravel Two Review (Ep. 28)

Show Notes

Buckle up kids, it’s going to be a long one! Our first E3 as a podcast has come and gone and boy, do we have a lot to say. Tune in for any details you may have missed and for our thoughts on many of the upcoming games. While E3 was our main focus this week, we did have time to for a couple of other activities. Amy played a fan recommended indie game (and she’s now recommending it to you too!). Unravel 2 was announced during EA’s conference at E3 and the co-op game released the same day! Stay tuned to the end of the show for a spoiler-free review of this delightful game.

E3 Wish List, Yoku’s Island Express, & FAR: Lone Sails (Ep. 27)

Show Notes

In this episode of Third Player Games, the gang gets a new theme song! We’d like to send a big thank you out to composer, Nevan Dove, for creating us a song of our very own! So, it turns out May was full of new, delightful indie games and everyone has some great recommendations. E3 is coming up fast and it seems to be the only thing anyone in the gaming community is talking about. So, naturally, we are too… but it might not be quite what you expect. Listen in for Third Player Game’s zaney E3 wish list. It’s highly unlikely any of our picks will show up but hey, we can dream can’t we!

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).

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.

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!
