#118 – Super Podsmash Bros Ultimate

Welcome to the Podsmash. We’re going to be smashing a bunch of things in this episode: Our reviews for Super Smash Bros Ultimate and Darksiders 3, the first two RESET AWARDS for 2018, a bunch of preconceptions about our level of podcasting professionalism, and my mum’s car. She knows what she did.

This week we’re also discussing the winners of The Game Awards 2018, The Outer Worlds, Mortal Kombat 11, Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fuelled, The Last Campfire, Hades, Journey to the Savage Planet, Devil May Cry 5, THQ Nordic’s recent gaming acquisitions, some final words on Red Dead Redemption 2 and Bethesda not being able to catch a break with Fallout 76.

And again, we discuss our (and your) winners for the first two RESET AWARDS: The Indie Award and The ‘New IP’ Award. And we play RESET Mini-game: Who’s that sound.

#112 – Rumours can be fun

When all the gaming news we have to report on is made up of rumours and speculation, there’s only one thing to do: report on them with poise and extreme grace. But hey, we’ve also played some games this week, including the absolutely fantastic Forza Horizon 4.

This week we’re also discussing the upcoming PAX Aus, the leaked upcoming Harry Potter RPG, rumours of a new Diablo game, rumours of a New Nintendo Switch model, Rockstar potentially casting for Bully 2, Microsoft potentially buying Obsidian Entertainment, Sony rolling out PSN ID name changes, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4, Super Mario Party and Jackbox Party Pack 5.

And finally, we list our Top 3 Characters we want in Super Smash Ultimate, and play RESET Mini-game: Who’s that sound.

#95 – Yakuza 6 and A Way Out

This week we’ve done something we almost never do: play games and then talk about them on a podcast, which is good because we definitely needed a new coat of paint on this thing. Anyway, the games lucky enough to be part of our major transformation are the as yet unreleased Yakuza 6 and the newly released A Way Out, so there’s plenty to gab about on this lovely episode.

This week we’re also discussing EA hiring for an open world Star Wars game, Brigitte going live in Overwatch, another GOTY for Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the upcoming Far Cry 5 and Curse of Monkey Island releasing on Steam and GOG.

And finally, we list our Top 3 Worst game instalments in a beloved series, and play RESET Mini-game: Who’s that sound.

#88 – Crossover games which should exist

There’s nothing quite like a good video game crossover. Actually, that’s not true at all, there are plenty of things better. By and large they’re usually mediocre. So let’s change that: for this week’s Top 3 we’re discussing crossover video games which should exist. Spoiler alert: we don’t change anything, all our suggestions are pretty terrible.

This week we’re also discussing Red Dead Redemption 2 being delayed again, Xbox Game Pass including Microsoft first party titles on day of launch, THEC64 Mini (Commodore 64 Mini), Mario Kart Tour, Illumination and Nintendo working on a Mario movie, the upcoming Shadow of the Colossus Remake, Hunt: Showdown and Monster Hunter: World.

And again, we list our Top 3 Crossover games which should exist, and play RESET Mini-game: Who’s that sound.
