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!

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?

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.
