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).

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?

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!

Episode 3 – Preview Clips

Every week we like to throw out some preview clips of our upcoming show, but shhhhhh we don’t want to give too much away! This week we talk about The Last Jedi with NO Spoilers, we promise! We play a Star Wars trivia game and of course our normal segments! Check out all the places you can listen to the full episode of our podcast in our podcast locations section!

Episode 1

It’s our first episode of the Third Player Games Podcast! In this episode we introduce ourselves, talk about what the podcast is all about and go through our not quite set in stone segments. We laugh a lot in this episode as we have one *shitty* news segment combined with two much more informative ones, news you won’t typically hear on the front pages of other sites. This episode also features our first round of our word game called, “What’s That Video Game?” In the end we wrap up with our cheers and jeers and we are not disappointed as we get to hear Jeffers sound crazy about a game with a very odd sounding name…
