Writing on GamesCast Ep. 112 - So Good, So 90s, So Vegan

Happy new year! We're back for a whole new decade of chatting shite. After a little while of figuring out how exactly to podcast again, we realise we've barely played anything since Game of the Year. Nico got back into Dark Souls 2 for some strange reason and, predictably, has hated every minute of it. Some thoughts on Thronebreaker, finally. Nico got his own Oculus Quest and, similarly to Hamish, has had his perspective on games shift dramatically. Nico reveals the Bitbusters answers he set up over a month ago, we answer your burning questions, and discuss terrible metalcore singers electrocuting themselves on stage.

The Fourth Annual Writing on GamesCast Game of the Year Bonanza (Day Two)

Time to wrap this up. Our deliberations into the best, worst and... oldest of 2019 concludes with almost five hours of goofs, gaffs, guests and games. Will Death Stranding make top 10? You decide! No wait, we decide! Our guests decide! A massive thank you to to all of you for sticking with us over another year of inconsistent release schedules. We really appreciate it a whole lot. We'll be back in 2020 bigger than ever. Take it eas'.

The Fourth Annual Writing on GamesCast Game of the Year Bonanza 2019 (Day One)

Well, we're here. Time to subject ourselves to this endurance test once more. Here is over four-and-a-half hours of us talking about the best and worst we played this year. For an idea of how this goes, this is, by some margin, the longest/most heated Best Looking discussion we've ever had (it's all in good fun though). Enjoy, and stick around for day two!

Writing on GamesCast Ep.109 - A Fountain of Corn Dogs

It's finally here—the StrandCast! That's right, we needed a month away just to deal with the momentous release of Death Stranding—a game that Nico inexplicably loves and Hamish gets exhausted even thinking about at this stage. We also talk Nico's venture to Vegas, how Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is... fine, why Pokemon might be bad now, as well as how the Oculus Quest is starting to reshape how Hamish looks at games (while looking like a cartoon doofus in Superhot VR). As always, we have Bitbusters (now with fabulous, furious prizes), the Big Time Tommie Minute, Goin' Postal and your questions! Next up—maaaybe Game of the Year?! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support

Writing on GamesCast Ep.108 - That's the Way I Get Down on a THURSDAY

This is the third episode in a row (I think) where we talk for half an hour about a game we haven't played yet (Death Stranding). After a debrief on Nico's first viewing of the entire John Wick franchise and a discussion on how Henry Rollins might not be that great, we talk about how Modern Warfare's campaign might be as dumb as The Quiet Man. The Outer Worlds is so good we don't have much to say about it. Going Postal returns as do Nico's regerts about starting the segment. This answer's to last episodes Bitbusters legitimately break Hamish to the point that it might be the hardest he's laughed on the podcast. And because we didn't play many games, we have a bumper edition of your questions! OS for life, take it eas'. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support

Writing on GamesCast Ep.107 - SF+U2

People are playing Death Stranding now. We're not, but that won't stop us talking about it. Nico goes to Galaxy's Edge and has a measured opinion on new Star Wars. Everything John Wick Hex does is understandable, but that doesn't make it fun to play. Introducing Nico's second new feature in as many weeks, Goin' Postal. This means he has to play Postal 4 every week, which is a fate worse than death. A Short Hike is tiny Breath of the Wild and might honestly be in both of our game of the year lists. And yes, we announce the answers to Bitbusters, give you the Big Time Tommie Minute you've all been waiting for, and envision the most expensive game of Pong ever made. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/writingongamescast/support

Writing on GamesCast Ep.106 - Freestyle Music

Join us as one host recovers from illness while the other develops it. Question whether anyone that says either "Joker is an irresponsible movie" or "Joker is a modern classic" has ever seen the film/any film before. Untitled Goose Game is a funny little experience, but we'd probably choose Goat Simulator over it. Ghost Recon Breakpoint is maybe the most catastrophically broken AAA game in years but not a totally terrible time. John Wick Hex is a true disappointment. Yakuza 3 doesn't hold up super well. Checking in on Big Time Tommie. Introducing new feature Bitbusters—tune in next podcast to hear the answers I guess. And yes, we discuss that Nostalgia Critic video.

Writing on GamesCast Ep.104 - Put Randy in the Aztec Box

Jackson Dingle and Ryan Nosecondname are talking Gamescom and have a lot to say about what was played/seen both on the show floor and behind closed doors—Avengers, Cyberpunk, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Dragonball Z Kakarot, and more. We also talk about how our opinion on Wolfenstein Youngblood somehow worsened from when we last called it "the most disappointing game since Mafia 3", Fire Emblem, that new No Man's Sky update (and why there probably won't be the usual Annual Video about it this time around) and Budget Tom Hardy from Upgrade starring in Telling Lies.Also a massive thank you to Nico who has taken over editing duties on the podcast—he's doing an amazing job.

In which we get paid millions by Microsoft to take the podcast to Mixer. Well, we don't actually, but we do go into how Metal Gear Solid 4 makes more sense in 2019 (because it doesn't make sense), why Wolfenstein: Youngblood might be the most disappointing game we've played since Mafia 3,and why Goat Simulator is still (and has always been) great. Oh, you also have your requisite CKY and Mike Patton minutes.
