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?

Fe Review & Upcoming Video Games In March – Third Player Games Podcast (Ep. 13)

Show Notes

Hey there everyone! In the 13th episode of Third Player Games podcast, we are back at in our corners of the world. We might be separate, but our audio is back to its high quality form! This week is light on news, some of it is not your normal headlines, what can we say it was a quiet week. We do have our end of the month segment where we give you the preview for March’s upcoming video games!

We also have What’s That Video Game and it’s a rare occasion where Josh can’t get points, mainly because he’s the host. Josh and Amy have apparently put together their own computer! With this comes some possibilities, including a potential Third Player Games Sea of Thieves run! Our biggest segment this week is one of the best reviews of a game we’ve heard in a long time. This one is for the video game Fe and it’s been done by our very own Amy Rose in our rotating segment!
