Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Okami HD, and Overcooked 2 (Ep. 37)

Show Notes:

This week on Third Player Games, Jeffers takes a vacation but the show must go on! Josh and Amy find silly ways to entertain themselves and I’ll be the first to admit… this one gets a little weird, guys. When they’re not discussing strange games located on the darkest depths of itch.io, they’re talking about all of the newsworthy events that happened this week! Did you catch Nintendo Direct? If not, no worries! Josh is here to fill you in.

 

Time Stamps:

1:50 – What have we been playing?

12:40 – News

Playing Monster Hunter World, Nintendo Switch & News! – Third Player Games Podcast (Ep. 10)

The Tenth Episode

In the tenth episode of Third Player Games Podcast, we go back to our roots. Josh, Amy, and Jeffers take a look back at their first news stories and what those have developed into since. Josh and Amy talk about the wonderful game Celeste a bit more, while Jeffers plays Hellblade for the first time. Of course, all three have loads to discuss now that they are all playing Monster Hunter World! In addition, there is a teaser about future content for Third Player Games, what could it be?!

Another crazy time with What’s That Video Game this week, the host? Josh Neilson! While revisiting old news stories is fun, the gang has plenty to add this week in terms of headlines. Nintendo Switch sales numbers compared to the Wii U, Anthem is delayed and rumors of Microsoft buying out big companies? And of course, they also have a Dark Souls 3 related Humble Bundle and a heads up on a valuable Playstation coupon! Third Player Games also is looking for feedback for their podcast segments while deciding on some major changes, use the contact links at the bottom or simply email us at heylisten@thirdplayergames.com.
