Mark Daley makes his second debut! This week Dylan magically turns into Jordan and the guys get whimsical about games of yesteryear. Meanwhile, Mark regales us with his adventures at this year’s Portland Retro Gaming Expo!
Mark Daley is back like the uninteresting side of a Magic Card and he comes with a laundry list of games that the “normal” guys normally wouldn’t play! Thus get ready for a breath of fresh air! Our topic this week, Rhythm Games! Rock band and Guitar Hero are making their Next Gen Debut and we have opinions on that! Are we looking forward to having a living room full of plastic instruments? Can Jordan’s roommate survive as Jordan learns the Drums? Was Mark actually a real life rock star?! Listen in to find out!
This week we answer the age old question. Do video games have story? If they do, would we have a favorite? Of course we have our What We’ve Been Play’n where Dylan never ceases to amaze with Kitty Powers’ Match Maker and Jordan goes back to Quake and Metal Gear Solid 5. Spencer and Rob descend into madness playing SOMA and dig into the meat of a great Horror game.
Dave Callaway is back this week so bring on the puns (due to listener complaints puns have been omitted from this episode) Jordan and Dylan give their first impressions on Blood Bowl 2, Dave covers his normal MMO content (and also plays first person shooters we find out) and after that we have a convocast where nothing is sacred!
This week we talk about Games We’ve Been Playing, weird right? After that, we go on a trip down memory lane and discuss some of the best, and worse voice actors in games. From Kyle Katarn to Peter Dinklage and FMV to CG movies, here’s looking at you Metal Gear, we cover it all. Remember, It’s All in the Voice
This week its all a debate about the Xbox One. Dylan seems like he may go buy one but brought it up for debate on the podcast. How has Microsoft delivered on their promises? Are there worth while exclusives? Can you finally efficiently use it without a Kinect? Listen in to find out the verdict!
This week the Game Out Loud Crew falls down a Killing Floor 2 hole! If you like a fast, visceral and amazing looking first person monster killer, CHECK THAT GAME OUT!
Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain is finally out and we cant play enough of it! Does the game stand up to the other games in the series? How does the game look? Is Kojima still crazy as ever? All this and a good round look at the game happens this week with the Game Out Loud Podcast.
This week we cover The History of Metal Gear Solid. Literally. We start at Metal Gear and cover everything up through Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeros. Christopher Lambert joins us this week and I’m pretty sure he has every game in the series memorized. Jordan also talks about Leap of Fate (a rouge lite Early access game with some potential) and a great table top gaming store in the Seattle area named PFC Games. Make sure to check them out over at https://www.facebook.com/pfcgamers . Look forward to more Table Top gaming conversations in the future (If Dylan and Rob don’t kill me first) Tune in next week for our Metal Gear Solid The Phantom Pain coverage!
This week Jordan falls victim to Dirty Bomb and is the death of the party in Party Hard, Dylan pushes buttons to finish Mass Effect 3 and goes a bit crazy in Postal 2 while Rob is stuck between worlds as a non swimming shadow boy in Limbo while slaying monsters and drinking way to many alcoholic potions in The Witcher 3. For our topic we cover the flood of up coming games in the later half of 2015.
Give Dirty Bomb a try before you buy. Seriously though, buy it, it’s fantastic!
This week we have a rather quick discussion about games you should be playing during the dry summer months (no pun intended this time). We open up our listener base to a contest for a copy of Rocket League, but Rob jumped the gun and tweeted about it DURING the podcast so as of this posting the contest is over. That shouldn’t stop you from listening in on last weeks episode to see what we were talking about. Let us know if you hear the offending audio! Thanks for listening in.
The Game Out Loud crew have a new guest! David Callaway brings a new perspective to MMOs in general and (much to Jordan’s delight) puns as a whole. We discuss Knights of the Old Republic, Rare Replay and The Magic Circle. Dylan gives us a very confusing update on The Vanishing of Ethan Carter and Jordan starts a dangerous decent back into Guild Wars 2. After we make enough puns for Rob to contemplate Jordan’s death via spork, we talk about crazy gaming peripherals and the implementation of gaming hardware in everyday gaming. Do gaming mice and keyboards bring an advantage to the table? Is there any real reason to own them? Is Rob insane because of the amount of gaming peripherals he owns? Make your own decision as you listen to this weeks episode.
This week Colin joins the crew for a great talk about Bloodborne with Jordan. Warning, there are some story spoilers but don’t let that stop you! After our what we’ve been playing we talk about the new Windows OS Windows 10!
Should you upgrade? How do our games work? Is it totally awesome having Cortana at our fingertips? Listen in to find out!
This week Jordan talks Steam indie games Dream, Program, and the current state of Kerbal Space Program. Meanwhile, Rob is singing the praises of Rocket League (and struggles to differential between Futball and ‘Murcan Football) while Dylan takes a flick at One Finger Death Punch and gets Stranded Deep in Early Access, then jumps over to the PS4 to bring us a review of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.
After that, they do a little soul searching and admit some of the downsides that come with being a PC gamer in 2015.
Also discussed: Louis CK, True Detective Season 2, Jon Gomm.
