Supply and Demand - Unscripted Access Episode #112

Unscripted Access Episode #112

Nintendo Direct announced the New Nintendo 3DS XL and limited editions, PlayStation Now game streaming is now available, and Forza Motorsport 6 was announced.

Nintendo had some exciting news, but it is really hard to buy the stuff they announced. In addition to Amiibo difficulties, the New Nintendo 3DS XL was announced for North America, with a Majora’s Mask limited edition system that sold out in fifteen minutes. And yes, new games were announced too, including a new Fire Emblem and various released dates. The gaming journalism world was shaken up a bit, as Kinda Funny was formed from former IGN editors. PlayStation Now is ready to work, with a rather reasonable monthly subscription rate. Forza Motorsport 6 was announced for Xbox One, which was not a surprise considering the Forza games are coming out every year now.

Good amount of big news, starting with the first ever PlayStation Experience, an even that focused exclusively on PlayStation products and upcoming games.

Sunset Overdrive surprised a lot of us here at TGA, Grand Theft Auto V for PS4/Xbox One comparison footage was released, PlayStation Plus games for December and January were announced, and the Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask remake for 3DS is coming.

Sunset Overdrive has been getting a lot of us excited to the point where this game is probably one of the best of the holiday season. Grand Theft Auto V next-gen had a comparison video released, and we are really impressed. So much so that we wonder how different it is from standard GTA V and if people are going to put it high on their shopping list. More awesome remake news as The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask remake for Nintendo 3DS was finally announced. PlayStation is looking a little twitchy as the PS Plus games for December and January were already announced, raising question marks among the stuff.

We will leave the rest to your ears, but trust me, this is not an episode to be missed. As always, we wrap up the show answering the various questions received from our last episode from our dedicated audience who enjoyed Unscripted Access Episode #108. Unscripted Access commence!

While Nick briefly forgot that we were actually recording, we recapped our Extra Life 2014 24-hour gaming charity run, as well as out SNAFU Con panel the past week. Xbox One bundles are already selling for $350 for this holiday season, and we wondered if the system has a good chance of temporarily outselling the PlayStation 4. In PS4 news, system update version 2.00 had been released, with the new big feature of Shareplay, allowing other players to play their friend’s game remotely. Destiny is set to have a new expansion soon, and it will be priced at $19.99.

Polarizing Driveclub – Unscripted Access Episode #107

Unscripted Access Episode #107

Other TGA members gave their opinions on the polarizing reception of Driveclub, Ubisoft says that Assassin’s Creed Unity will lock the PS4 version to the same level as the Xbox One version, and Microsoft announced the Halo: Master Chief Collection white Xbox One bundle for markets that are not North America.

For Unscripted Access week, we talked about Driveclub, which has proved to be either likable or very mediocre for the general public. To makes even more difficult, the online servers were not working. Other members of the TGA staff gave their opinions on the game. In a decision that made lots of question marks fly in the hair and sent Nick on a rant, Assassin’s Creed Unity will have the PS4 version locked down to the same level of detail graphically as the Xbox One version. Continuing with news that does not make much sense, the Brazil Game Show saw the announcement of a white Xbox One bundle which includes the Halo: Master Chief Collection game. The problem was this system is bundle currently will not be available for the Xbox One’s biggest market in North America.

The Longevity of the Grind - Unscripted Access Episode #106

Unscripted Access Episode #106

Week 4 of Destiny and we gave more of our impressions and disappointments, Blizzard canceled the 7-year-old Titan project, PlayStation Plus games are announced for October, Steve Ballmer has banned iPads from the Los Angeles Clippers organization, and Nintendo itself is now 125 years old.

Destiny is a big topic, and we had some more impressions…and disappointments to express about it. After seven years, Blizzard cancels its Titan MMO project, putting it in the same corner as StarCraft Ghosts. While the costs of canceling such a long-term project are very high, Bronson was not concerned. Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer now owns the Los Angeles Clippers, and ordered the ban of iPads from the organization. Nintendo the company itself is now 125 years old, and we went through a list we found of user picks of the top ten video games the company has ever produced.

Guerilla Games is rumored to have a new game called Horizon, featuring robotic dinosaurs in a post-apocalyptic future. Grand Theft Auto V screenshots for PS4 and Xbox One have been released, and we asked ourselves how much we are willing to pay.

Unscripted Access Episode #104

Destiny has been released and we give the initial impressions, DriveClub initial DLC is detailed, Anthony ran into a laptop snafu, and iPhone 6 and Apple Pay was announced.

Destiny has been released, and we gave our initial impressions and worries! In keeping the PlayStation 4 going, new DriveClub DLC was detailed. Anthony got a new laptop, and already there was a problem, along with a somewhat fuming rant. Apple announced the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but likely more significant is Apple Pay, aiming to revolutionize the way people purchase things in stores and online.
