Podcast 42 – Splinter Cell: Blacklist, PS4 and Xbox One release dates, and more!

This week on the 8 Bit Awesome Podcast, Willie is back, so we can’t make fun of him anymore (but we do anyway)! We chat about Sony’s presence at Gamescom and the announcement of a PS4 release date, while we theorize why Microsoft didn’t let the cat out of the bag for when we’ll be seeing the Xbox One. Chris gives an odd review of Splinter Cell: Blacklist, calling it amazing and awesome, but his second least-favourite in the series, whatever that means. We also chat about The Killer is Dead, and hit on some more about The Wonderful 101. Thanks for tuning in to another edition of the 8 Bit Awesome Podcast!

Podcast 41 – More Microsoft reversals (Kinect not required) and Pokémon vs. Tekken?

This week on the 8 Bit Awesome Podcast, Willie is gone, so Chris and I take the helm (and make fun of Willie a fair amount, too).  We start off with a plethora of Pokémon news from the Pokemon Game Show in Japan, where a trailer showed off a potential Pokemon fighting game. Then we move on to another Microsoft reversal, where they revealed that the Kinect would not need to be plugged in for the Xbox One to function. Finally, we touch upon the reviews for The Wonderful 101 and Disney Infinity and  finish up with a GBA SP/ GBA versus segment. Be sure to also take a look at Chris’ glowing review of the Pokémon Travel series posters from Little Pixel Posters!

Podcast 40 – Pokémon gets mega evolved, Saints Row IV, and another 8 Bit Awesome VERSUS!

This week on the 8 Bit Awesome podcast, we talk even more about Pokémon as we get more and more news about Mega Evolutions in the upcoming Pokémon X and Y. Deep Silver also announced an ungodly million-dollar edition of Saints Row IV, and no one is quite sure if it’s a joke or not. Roller Coaster Tycoon 4 also got leaked this week, though by leaked, we really mean FAKED. Too bad Willie and Will really fell for that one, and you can hear their hearts break as I prove it to them. Oh, and our second round of the 8 Bit Awesome VERSUS goes down with our favourite handheld Zelda titles! Thanks for listening to another episode of the 8 Bit Awesome Podcast and let us know what you’d like to see on the next podcast by leaving a comment below!

Podcast 39 – Xbox One specs, (the lack of) Wii U sales, and Pikmin 3 is finally here!

This week on the 8 Bit Awesome podcast, we muse about Nintendo’s space in the gaming industry as the Wii U sold a paltry 160,000 units over a three month period. Worldwide. No, really. Microsoft also bumped the specs of its Xbox One due out later this year, though not by much. We then spend an ungodly amount of time talking about Pikmin 3 as Christopher is sad that he can no longer make fun of Willie for the game not coming out. Thanks for listening to another episode of the 8 Bit Awesome Podcast and let us know what you’d like to see on the next podcast by leaving a comment below!

Podcast 38 – LEGO, Amnesia, and our new segment: 8 Bit Awesome VERSUS! Oh, and Amnesia!

This week, we discuss the another sad lack of news from the gaming industry, but we do it with class as we introduce our new segment, 8 Bit Awesome VERSUS! Before that, we chat about Fez 2 being cancelled, the possibility of Zelda-based LEGO sets (no, they’re not called legos, Willie), and chat about The Wolverine! Our first segment of VERSUS is all Pokémon related, and it’s a doozy! There are runners up and legacy awards and everything. Thanks for listening to another episode of the 8 Bit Awesome Podcast and let us know what you’d like to see on the next podcast by leaving a comment below!
