Podcast 61: Much ado about Destiny (Beta)

Hey everybody! Ever heard of a little game called “Halo?” Of course you have. And the creator – Bungie – has a new title coming out on September 9th. The Beta test for “Destiny” went live this weekend, and Will and Willie took it for a spin. What did they think? Well, listen in. Right click to Download

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 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!
