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!

Battlefield V Reveal & Pikmin Retro Rewind (Ep. 26)

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

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!

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.

Amanda Farough Special Guest! – Third Player Games Podcast (Ep. 15)

Show Notes

In this episode Amy & Josh have abandoned the show, they left. Alright fine, they went on vacation. That’s okay though, Third Player Games Podcast has their first ever guest! She’s made a career writing about video games and entertainment. Intelligent, funny and knowledgeable, this is one podcast episode you don’t want to miss! The amazing Amanda Farough joins Jeffers Haile in a hilarious informative episode.

We have a huge news segment this week! Valve is back in town when it comes to making games, a PS4 exclusive game was delayed and a lot of fantastic news from the Nintendo Direct! Along with this, we get to hear how Jeffers almost lost his passion for video games, but one game, in particular, changed everything. Better yet, Amanda tells us how she started from the bottom of the internet writing pool, only to make herself into the success she is today. All the while she gives back to the “baby journalist” community!

ESRB Will Add Label, We Play Keep Talking & Nobody Explodes – (Ep. 14)

Show Notes

It’s Third Player Games Podcast time! In this week’s episode, we keep it short and sweet! The ESRB is adding labels for “In Game Purchases.” We also talk about the many games we’ve been playing, some old school, some new school and some that are right in the middle. The new Overwatch character Brigitte has been announced, Sony is doubling down on First-Party Games and the PSN Plus this month is amazing!

In addition to all that we talk about a game that everyone can have fun with, even non-gamers, Keep Talking And Nobody Explodes. Also, we have a bit of an announcement at the end of this week’s show, the next couple of episodes will be wildly different to past weeks.
