Unscripted Access Episode #85

PAX East 2014 schedule lives up to the PAX excitement, Nintendo gave many new details on the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, and we talk a lot of random things since the news channels were quite dead.

We just might be getting better at BS-ing gaming topics to talk about, as the news channels are almost completely dried up with E3 being just two months away. Nick has recently experienced an illness that has caused him to temporarily to lose his voice. We wish him a speedy recovery. For those heading to PAX East, the schedule continues the PAX tradition of providing excitement every day. Nintendo did a new “Super Smash Bros.” Direct video providing thirty minutes of new announcements.

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 #84. Unscripted Access commence!

Concerns of the Top People Leaving PS – Unscripted Access Episode #84

Unscripted Access Episode #84

Amazon announced the Fire TV, Phil Spencer is now head of everything Xbox, and we become concerned about the number of reputable people within PlayStation leaving Sony.

Amazon announced and started selling the Fire TV on the same day. The device is an Apple TV competitor, and its gaming abilities were described as for people who game on tablets and phones. Phil Spencer is now head of everything on Xbox, which is viewed already as an improvement from the Don Mattrick days. On the topic of head people, a lot of high-profile people and people in general have been leaving PlayStation. With layoffs at Sony Santa Monica, Jack Tretton recently leaving Playstation, and lead writer Amy Hennig gone from Naughty Dog, we found it strange and a little worrying that people are leaving when PlayStation 4 is enjoying massive success at the moment.

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 #83. Unscripted Access commence!

A Graphics Card That Costs More Than Gaming PCs – Unscripted Access Episode #83

Unscripted Access Episode #83

Nintendo and Sony will not be at PAX East, Game Boy Advance games are coming to Wii U in April, Facebook bought the company behind Oculus Rift, and NVIDIA announced the $3000 GeForce Titan Z.

Rapid-fire news delivery this week, so here we go. Nintendo and Sony will not be making appearances at PAX East this year; we thought it was because of E3 and not having much to show. Game Boy Advance games are coming to Wii U next month, but not to Nintendo 3DS. Facebook bought the company behind Oculus Rift, which gave a confusing vibe since the two of them do very different things. NVIDIA has announced the GeForce Titan Z, which has two Titan GPUs on one board. It costs $3000, which is more expensive than most very-well equipped gaming desktops and notebooks.

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 #82. Unscripted Access commence!

Small News and More Dark Souls Brutality – Unscripted Access Episode #81

Unscripted Access Episode #81

Jack Tretton will no longer be at the top position of Sony Computer Entertainment America, a Microsoft Store glitch allowed people to get $400 Xbox Ones, Dark Souls 2 quickly lives up to the reputation of the franchise, and Super Smash Bros. finds itself back into the Evo fighting game tournament scene.

The list of big news is almost non-existent, but, in its place, we found a lot of small news to talk about. Jack Trenton will no longer be at the top position of Sony Computer Entertainment America at the end of the month, having been with PlayStation since the beginning. A glitch that lasted an hour on the Microsoft store allowed people to purchase Xbox Ones at $400; whether those purchases are honored is another question. Dark Souls 2 easily lived up to its predecessors, at least in the statistics count. Just over a day after launch, players have gotten their characters killed 4.3 million times. In fighting game news, Nintendo has approved Super Smash. Bros Melee to be played and broadcasted from the Evo fighting game tournament, after last year’s controversial attempts to block broadcasting.

Which Version of Titanfall Will Sell Better? – Unscripted Access Episode #80

Unscripted Access Episode #80

Batman: Arkham Knight is announced exclusively for the new generation, major Uncharted writing Amy Hennig left Naughty Dog, PlayStation 4 reached six million units sold worldwide, Titanfall originally spent some time developed as an Xbox 360 game, and Xbox One got another major system update.

Nick was back, and so was Anthony. Batman: Arkham Knight was announced, exclusively for the new generation of gaming (PS4, Xbox One, PC), and is developed as a full Rocksteady game instead of a different development team. Uncharted writer Amy Hennig leaves Naughty Dog, which made us concerned whether the future of the franchise can retain the “Uncharted” touch. PlayStation 4 reached six million units sold worldwide, aided by the recent launch of the system in Japan. Titanfall was originally developed as an Xbox 360 game for some time, which caused a debate whether the Xbox 360 or Xbox One version will sell better. Wrapping up the news, Xbox One got another major system update, which yet again introduces features already found on the Xbox 360.

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 #79. Unscripted Access commence!

How Hyped Are We for Titanfall? - Unscripted Access Episode #78

Unscripted Access Episode #78

TGA gives the opinion on the Titanfall beta, NVIDIA releases the new GeForce Titan Black and GeForce 750 Ti video cards, The Order 1886 has new brief gameplay footage, Twitch Plays Pokemon becomes a massive phenomenon, and TGA conceives a new t-shirt idea.

This week is giving some excitement, as March is coming soon and big games are within a month away. With the Titanfall beta out for a week now, we gave our impressions on the shooter that features giant machines. NVIDIA has announced some new video cards. We think the GeForce Titan Black makes no scene, but the $150 GeForce 750 Ti is showing some incredible potential for the future. New details of The Order 1886 were released, including brief gameplay footage. However, it was brief to the point where we could not give a good opinion just yet. The gaming community has taken massive interest to “Twitch Plays Pokemon”, a Twitch TV channel where Pokemon Red is controlled by the comments.

In the Face of Controversy – Unscripted Access Episode #77

Unscripted Access Episode #77

Titanfall beta signups have started, Flappy Bird gets pulled of the App Store in the face of much controversy, and Amazon buys Double Helix Games.

The news has been very dry, so we dug for some smaller news stories. To start off, Titanfall beta signups have started. Yes, we continue to not like Origin. Flappy Bird became quite the news story since it was not well-liked, and then it disappeared off the App Store, prompting eBay prices of phones with the game to shoot into the thousands. We thought it was because of Internet jerks and over-reaction. We didn’t know it was because of “addiction” concerns. Amazon has purchased the developers of the latest Killer Instinct game, Double Helix Games. What does this mean? We are not sure, but creating a new gaming device may happen.

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 #76. Unscripted Access commence!

Kojima stated that Metal Gear Solid V looks slightly better on PlayStation 4, MGS V is rumored to be capable of being finished in two hours, and Kojima has indicated that he would like to move on from Metal Gear. In addition, Halo 2 Anniversary is all but confirmed, and Xbox One is to get some “important updates”.

Quite a bit of Metal Gear Solid V news this week, starting with Kojima stating MGS V looks slightly better on PlayStation 4 than on Xbox One. Calm down people, it’s not the end of the world. There are rumors that MGS V: Ground Zeroes can be finished in two hours, which may or may not lead to questionable value. With Metal Gear Solid V happening this year, Kojima has stated that he would like to move to new ideas after the game’s release. We think it might lead to cool new creative ideas. We talked about our opinions on a Halo 2 Anniversary game possibly existing, and, with new Xbox One updates introducing “Hard Drive Capacity Remaining” and “USB Keyboard Support”, it sent one of us on a rant.
