Pedz is joined by Tafdolphin, who is making his first Twitchcast appearance. Although those that listened to the GRcade Podcast 2.0 will recognize Taf.
This episode Taf and Pedz have been playing a few different games. Taf wanted to talk about The Outer Worlds and a game called Disco Elysium, comparing how the way conversation trees and action in games are done differently and why he prefers the latter game’s way of doing it.
Pedz talks about a few other games, where he segues into horror games which also segued into the horror/Halloween theme. A few days after Halloween had happened, the guys thought why not talk about horror. We all like horror, bar Doom, the baby.
The third topic, Pedz and Taf talk about Blizzcon, which leads to a little political chat about Hong Kong and Blizzard’s attitude and apology.
This week the Twitchcast is hosted solo by The Doom Spoon.
This week Doom talks about Fortnite going offline. Is one of the biggest games at the moment going offline a big risk?
In other news, Bethesda and Id Software delay of Doom Eternal – whether it’s a good, bad, necessary measure. It not being delayed but up to scratch would be worse than it releasing soon and disappointing players.
There’s a section of Doom checking some GRcade topics to see who smells, which is different, but, it’s pretty fun.
The last topic is quite different from the norm. It’s video game -related, but, it’s also very political in that it’s about Blizzard and the banning of a Hearthstone player for speaking out against China’s oppression of Hong Kong.
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.
