Podcast 49 – We’re back! Next-gen is here… and so is the Wii mini.

Hey everybody! We’re back after a bit of a break and ready for the next-gen! This time around, Willie scares everyone with his Pikmin Halloween costume, Will scares everyone with his lack of Mexican-ness, and Nintendo scares everyone by bringing the Wii mini to the USA for the holiday season. But of course, we talk next-gen and how everything will play out! Thanks for listening to another episode of the 8 Bit Awesome podcast!

And seriously, we promise we’re back in full force from here on out. Maybe one day, we’ll release a DVD with the lost episodes 46, 47, and 48. Keep an eye out on Amazon for that in 2015!

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 33 – Microsoft DRM reversal, E3 3DS round-up

This week on the 8Bit Awesome Podcast we discuss how Microsoft is finally reversing their anti-consumer DRM policies for the Xbox one, most likely due to their terrible preorder numbers on Amazon and Gamestop. The PR disaster and E3 backlash finally has Microsoft running scared. After that lengthy discussion, we roundup a couple games we missed in our E3 extravaganza, namely the upcoming Link to the Past sequel, A Link Between Worlds and Pokemon X and Y.
