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.

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.

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.

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.
