E3 Final Thoughts, Overcooked, & Cuphead Stream Highlights (Ep. 29)

Show Notes

Did you listen to last week’s episode and think to yourself.. “Man, I loved the rambling, but I wish it wasn’t so long”? If so, have we got an episode for you! You may not believe it, but we somehow manage to find more to discuss about E3 in this episode too as we wrap up our final thoughts. Josh and Amy have been facing the stresses of running a kitchen, without any of the (less than) minimum wage.. and Jeffers hops back on our Twitch channel and plays a game that is near and dear to all of our hearts. Skyrim comes up again (no surprise there) but Fortnite seems to somehow not make an appearance for once (except for right here – whoops!). Stay tuned to the end for a special insight into films that comfort us during moments of despair and stay tuned to the very,very end for a special documentary recommendation that we think you might like.
If you’ve stuck with us this long, thank you.. Seriously. We love you all.. Especially you, Onyx. And you, Jason. And you all.

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.
