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!

Show Notes

In the 26th episode of Third Player Games Podcast, we dive into the controversy that was the Battlefield V reveal. The gang quickly moves on to happier times though leading into an Amy hosted What’s That Video Game. This week the gang has not one, but two rotating segments! First up is the preview of games in June! A lot of ports on this list, Wolfenstein II, Crash Bandicoot, but we also have one of Jeffers most anticipated games of the year, indie title Vampyr! At the end of the podcast, Third Player Games wraps up with a Retro Rewind segment, this time the name of the game is Pikmin!

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?

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.

Outlast Stream Recap, Sea of Thieves, Upcoming April Games – Third Player Games Podcast (Ep. 18)

Show Notes

What’sss up everybodyyyy? This week we discuss the games we finally got around to finishing (including a spooky game on the ThirdPlayerGames Twitch stream), dive into the news, and as always, “What’s That Video Game?”. It’s Josh’s turn to host, so maybe Amy and Jeffers can finally start to catch up in the scoreboard… maybe. To wrap it up, we look forward to upcoming April game releases. It got a little banana sandwich there at the end, but we’re all stronger for it… I think.
