E3 2019 Rundown!

GRcadeTwitchcast – E3 Discussion Videos!

The Electronic Entertainment Expo which most just call E3 is the time of year us game lovers call our Christmas. It’s a little daft, but the sentiment is pretty simple, we watch people sell us stuff… Wait, that’s not what Christmas is about?

I’m not writing a massive article about E3 here, but instead a few of the people from GRcade took to Twitch and decided to talk about E3, some of the conferences were at convenient enough times for people to have live reactions to them, while others weren’t and will be discussed in a general E3 round up in the end.

First video up is Microsoft. Doom and Pedz were available for this, ad7 did try and join, but, was unable to do having Mic troubles. The Watching Artist (Matt) joined approximately half way through as Doom had to leave, but he did return to talk a tiny bit about the conference overall.

Audio only.

Ubisoft. Ah, good old Ubi, you can’t help but admire their crazy silliness. Do they stay as silly? Let’s have a look.

Inside Xbox. Another Xbox Conference, it’s not a ’60 games announcement’ conference, but it does show a few new games and talks a little about the future of the Xbox One. I think Doom put’s it well at the end of the live viewing.

Audio only

Lastly, we have the Nintendo E3 Direct. We have Jenuall, The Watching Artist (Matt) and Pedz taking part in this one. They didn’t watch the direct during its live broadcast but they did watch it for the first time, together.

Audio only

We haven’t been able to get together since this, so a round-up isn’t likely going to happen, but we all had fun doing this and we hope we can get more done for future events. Thank you all for watching and listening to us all prattle on!



GRcade Twitchcast Episode 14 – Arnie-mal Crossing!

Today’s hosts are Doom and Pedz

With E3 mere days away you can guess what the chat is about, right? Well, you’d be correct in thinking it’s the Ghostbusters remaster. Pedz brings up the remaster and Doom asks things like what generation would Pedz buy a remastered game of. The discussion is about remasters in general in the end, not just Ghostbusters.

You’d also be correct in thinking Doom and Pedz talk about the baffling decision Nintendo has made with regards to online friend play in Super Mario Maker 2. Truly bizarre, and the reason just doesn’t add up.

Next up, Pokémon is discussed (You guess that? – with the Pokemon Direct the day before this Episode was streamed. Doom disagrees with Pedz on the better-looking wolf, but surprisingly, people agree with Pedz (It’s surprisingly ’cause Pedz is normally always wrong) and both are pretty impressed with how it’s looking, also… Why Wolves? Red Squirrels, they’d get, Wolves? Not so much.

Lastly, you, you guessed it, Google’s Stadia. A mere couple of hours before the stream went live. Google had its own with some Stadia chat. Both hosts are interested, but there are concerns which Doom has more and the concerns are higher, while Pedz while having concerns feels that they could be levelled at Netflix and the like and yet people lap that up.

Okay, okay. We do then jump into Pre-E3 chat: what we want, what we think we’ll see, but the guys find it difficult with thinking of things due to the winding down of the current gen of consoles; it’s difficult to think of things you want over the next year when within 2 years we’re all (maybe/probably/more than likely) getting our shiny new consoles.

This episode is a doozy though and comes in at over 3 hours long. Hope everyone enjoys this as much as Doom and Pedz enjoy doing them!

Don’t forget, you can always tune in live to the GRcade Twitch channel for these episodes, plus various game streams.

GRcade Twitchcast Episode 13 – Kil-ing time with Doom and Pedz

Doom and Pedz are joined this week by Captian Kil for his first Twitchcast appearance.

This week’s exchange is all about:

  • Super Mario Maker 2 and the latest Nintendo Direct. Honestly the direct isn’t spoke about too much, it’s mainly Doom, Kil and Pedz talking about whether it looks like a significant upgrade,or if it should have been Super Mario Maker Deluxe.
  • Sony and Microsoft teaming up and perhaps Nintendo using Azure for streaming games.
  • Kil catches us up on City of Heroes and Villains, which has recently come back to for all to play and for free.
  • Doom brings the Playdate and Huawei into the conversation with how interesting the former looks and hipster-ish, while Huawei has been great for him and he’s hoping things will be changed back so he can have more Huawei devices.
  • Kil tells us about his visit to the V&A exhibition in Dundee. It’s sounding pretty ace.
  • We then talk a little about games we’ve played, though it’s pretty brief, most talk is about Sea of Thieves and how Doom and Pedz view the game differently.

GRcade’s Twitchcast 12 – A Car Ride and Awkwardness!

GRcade Twitchcast 12 – A Car Ride and Awkwardness!

Doom and Pedz are the hosts this week.

There is a point where Doom has to leave but joins via his phone on HANDS-FREE to continue talking, but for a short period of time Pedz is left on his own. While Pedz likes talking he feels that he needs a person to bounce off and being alone is where the awkwardness of the title is from. Silly Pedz.

Big 3 under UK investigation over online games and services

Someone beat Mario 64 in 70 hours… With 1 Button?!

Prince Harry wants Fortnight banned :/

Borderlands 3 will have the best gun ever and Rage 2 has the best cheat ever. A little about some cool little odd things in games.

Microsoft set to reveal Game Pass ultimate, which is both Game Pass and XBL Gold and will be cheaper than being bought separately.

And then there’s the Xbox Live Gold price increase in the UK only, Wonder what is the cause of this….?

GRcade Twitchcast Episode 11 – Lots to Discuss.

GRcade Twitchcast Episode 11 – Lots to Discuss!

Doom and Pedz are you hosts for Episode 11.

The guys talk about several things, Monolith Soft and Zelda, where speculation is made on their involvement, and where the Zelda franchise will go after Breath of the Wild, as well as what we would like to see and if we’d be willing to go back to a more focused Zelda game.

Next is the Sega Mega Drive Mini. A little chat is had about this, Pedz even pre-ordered his.

Then Switch online and Amazon are mentioned before talking about the 2 supposedly leaked Switch models.

Lastly, talk is on Sony’s State of play, Driveclub going bye-bye and then Elder Scrolls Granny.



GRcade Twitchcast Episode 10 – Stadia and Nindies!

GRcade Twitchcast Episode 10 – Stadia and Nindies!

First off, I need to apologise for the technical difficulties during the stream, This Twitchcast is streamed live on Twitch and all the members who take part use Discord due to being in different locations across the UK. The problems were mainly with Discord and voices cutting out. If it was recorded and streamed, there wouldn’t have been any change in the problems due to it being via Discord, and the one time the stream cut out meant things weren’t caught and again if it was being recorded it wouldn’t have been picked up as Discord itself disconnected. Again, I can only apologise for this, but I guess this is one of the biggest obstacles of doing a podcast live on Twitch. It hasn’t been a problem until now, and I think the fact that the Twitchcast is interactive with the audience as it’s streamed makes up for that, so I hope you all still enjoy this episode and let’s hope to technical difficulties doing one and not coming back.

The hosts this week are the Doom Spoon, Jazzem, Legendary Slam, Lord Aten and Pedz. The guys chat about the news of Google and its entry into the gaming space with Stadia. Views are mixed on this, and there are good and point points brought up by everyone.

Then talk goes into The latest Nintendo Indie Developer Direct, where only Doom, Jazzem and Pedz discuss this. One guy is underwhelmed, can you guess who?


GRcade Twitchcast Episode 9 – Driveless, Porting and Responsibility!

This week your hosts are Doom and Pedz and joining is newcomer Lord Aten.

After a couple of weeks of being unable to do the GRcade Twitchcast, Doom and Pedz get together with Lord Aten and get Episode 9 underway.

The team talk about The Xbox One that’s coming out fairly soon which will not have a disc drive. It will be an all-digital home console, we ponder how successful it will be and whether they release the NeXtbox with 2 SKU’s one with and one without a disc drive, ould we buy it.

The second topic of discussion is about the Halo Master Chief Collection coming to PC, the fact it’s coming to PC is what a lot asked for, and we kind of expected it, but the surprising thing is it’s coming to Steam, a rival PC store.

Lastly, the topic turns to the reception that ‘Anthem’ has gotten and how ‘The Division 2’ is getting a better one, and the chat does get a little heated as Doom and Pedz are in a little disagreement about responsibility behind a game’s failure.

Don’t forget that the Twitchcast is a Podcast that is live stream to Twitch.

GRcade Twitchcast Episode 7 – GRcade’s Game of the Year!

This week your hosts are Doom, Pedz and for the first time Serial Celer.

This week the good folk of GRcade talk a bit about the release of Resident Evil 2 Remake, and a little about the series in general. We also delve into the recent Nindies Direct (Nintendos Indie Direct). Finally, we talk about the 2018 GRcade Game of the Year Awards. The awards are run by Celer, and the voting is done by the members of GRcade.

It’s a fun discussion about what we think may have been the reasons for some of the votes, what we voted for, and why other games may not have had the success we thought they may have had. There was also talk of winners from previous years.

We also had a special moment in where Doom is asked his opinion by Celer and his reply is not what you expect. Sorry for the clickbait like sentence there, but I don’t want to spoil the moment for you.

Remember, we stream this live on Twitch and would be grateful for anyone who enjoys listening to come along and take part. It’s what the Twitchcast is all about.

Along with the news, we discuss the data mining of the Switch and it’s Snes games that may be coming to the online service. We talk a little about each game that is in the data mining information and a little bit of what we’d like, what other systems we’d like, the online service itself and then answer a few questions from the viewers in the Twitch chat.

GRcade Twitchcast Episode 5 – Who is The Doom Spoon?

This week the cast is Doom and Pedz.

On the GRcade Twitchcast this week, there were only two people available. Someone came up with the idea to make this episode delve into the background of Doom’s history in gaming, with a load of questions.

There are about 30 questions in total and are mainly about Doom’s past experience with games. The idea is the more you lovely listeners get to know about us the more you can feel a connection.
