Hello everybody and welcome to another episode of the TBoD podcast. Having finally surpassed our centenary episode we feel like we’ve matured as podcasters and as people so we’re delving into some seriously deep discussions today including;
Thanks for joining us once more as we assault your aural cavities talking about the Uncharted 4 Beta, The Hitman Beta, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Stardew Valley and the price point and relevance of VR ahead of the upcoming PSVR announcement.
TBoD is back. After a week off due to illness (both mental and physical) and a celebration of new life we have returned for your listening (dis) pleasure. We do our best to catch up on two weeks worth of exciting gaming news including;
Evolve – a 4vs1 shooter from the team behind the awesome L4D,
BF4 – Resuming the stream of DLC coming out from Dice/EA and the implications on the buggy game itself,
Uncharted territory for Seth Gordon, the front runner to bring Drakes adventures to the big screen,
Titanfall – We couldn’t ignore the Xbox/PC exclusive this week of all weeks,
Sonic Boom – The return of the blue blur with a new look,
So here we are once more at what is undoubtedly the busiest time of year for gamers which is both exciting and depressing at the same time. So to help you all out we decided to do a quick round up of all the games we are going to be playing in the build up to the festive period.
Ico and Shadow of the Colosus Hd 3d– I may be late to this party but don’t underestimate my excitement I loved both of these games first time around and can’t wait to see this new, even more beautiful edition.
Uncharted 3 Drakes deception– Yup Drake’s back and since his last two outings were probably the best games on the ps3 and possibly the best looking console games of all time I’m literally drooling at the prospect of returning to the tomb raider inspired shooter with a side order of puzzles in all of its 3d glory.
We played the beta and are hitting the main game right now and despite the frustration of dying every couple of minutes its destructable enviros, vehicle combat and massive maps have you respawning back for more and more …. and more.
Nuff said really. Seriously though oblivion was easily the best rpg of this generation and skyrims new engine promises much and I (elth) feel confident that bethesda won’t let us down and that we will be immersed in a world of snow yetis, swords, bows, magic and dragons for a long while and we might be able to finally wash the foul taste out of our mouths which was left by the frankly appaling dragon age 2.
