The GRcade Twitchcast Episode 18 – One Foot in the GRave!

The Doom Spoon and Pedz are joined by Victor for hosting duties.

This week the guys talk about the Pokemon 24hr mystery stream. Was it worth a 24-hour stream for what appears to be a reveal of a Galar variant of a generation one Pokemon?

The discussion then turns to the Fallout Legacy Collection. What do the guys think? Does this sound good? Is it a coincidence that Obsidian’s name game is being released on the 25th of October and this so happens to come out the same day?

Ubisoft and the microtransactions in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint is the next topic of discussion. There are some mixed views on this.

Unfortunately, Victor had to leave due to the time and then remembering he works on a Monday and will be shattered. But Doom and Pedz continue to talk (do they ever stop?) and the conversation moves over to the GRcade Video Game Eliminator. The top spot is somewhat predictable, but what does Doom think overall?

Playstation Now is also a topic tonight. The guys think Sony may have now realised that the service may be viable after looking at Xbox Gamepass’ success.

Lastly, there’s a little chat about Alphadream. They were the creators of the Mario and Luigi series but unfortunately filed for bankruptcy in the week.

The GRade Twitchcast Episode 17 – The Name Will Come Later!

The hosts of this weeks GRcade Twitchcast are Pedz and The Doom Spoon.

This week the guys talk about the latest PlayStation State of Play. The games they’ve shown, whether it was engaging enough – did anything pique anyone’s interest?

After that, the chat turns to the Inside XBox presentation and again similar things are discussed; which was more interesting?

Lastly, it’s been 2 weeks since Robocop Versus Terminator was picked as a game that both will replay to see if it still holds up and whether nostalgia is a big part of that. Both have played the game, but, how does it fare today? Pedz also played the NES prototype game and that’s rather different. During the podcast, there is footage from the game shown. Check it out on YouTube if you are interested in seeing some of the points made.

GRcade Twitchcast Episode 16 – The Root of All Evil!

The hosts of this weeks GRcade Twitchcast are Pedz and The Doom Spoon.

This week the conversation starts with the chat about The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. A game that Pedz has played back on the Gameboy and Doom is playing for the first time. The chat is more about the controversy surrounding the framerate issues, than the gameplay.

Moving on to the second topic is Untitled Goose Game, where Pedz talks briefly about his short play session on it. While Doom hasn’t played it, he’s got the game and is rather intrigued by it.

Then lastly we have The Guardian’s Top 50Ggames of the 21st Century to talk about. Unfortunately, the chat is rather quick as Doom had personal commitments and it resulted in Pedz just telling games to fuck off so they could move on quickly to another game.

GRcade Twitchcast Episode 15 – Catching Up!

The hosts of this weeks GRcade Twitchcast are Pedz and The Doom Spoon.

It’s been a while since the last GRcade Twitchcast, in fact, there hasn’t been one since E3. Doom has been busy and has had a few issues and Pedz has been lazy. Basically, this is just a catch-up episode where the guys catch up and just talk random stuff for a little while. We hope you enjoy this, and we should now things have settled down the Twitchcast will be more regular.

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.

Audio only

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?
