Unscripted Access Episode #108

The Gamer Access completed Extra Life 2014 Charity Run and the SNAFU Convention panel, Xbox One bundles are selling for $350 this holiday season. PlayStation 4 system update 2.0 was released featuring Shareplay, and the new Destiny expansion is priced at $19.99.

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.

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 #106. Unscripted Access commence!

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.

Fired Up at Lousy Sales Pitches - Unscripted Access #99

Unscripted Access Episode #99

The Last of Us: Remastered was released on PlayStation 4, Bronson Rants (get it) at GameStop for poor stocking of games, EA Access was announced and in beta, and the Destiny Beta had 4.6 million players.

There is now one more reason for Anthony to buy a PlayStation 4, because the greatness that is The Last of Us is now available on that system. We gave our thoughts. Bronson tried to get The Last of Us PS4, but GameStop decided to not stock things very well, and caused him to fume. In addition, there is now a GameStop credit card. EA Access was announced, and entered beta on Xbox One. If things are ideal, PlayStation Now could look quite a bit worse. If beta testing numbers are a sign of success, Destiny is looking much more than healthy; 4.6 million players entered the Destiny beta.
