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).

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?

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…
