Victor has to leave us again here as he is unwell, has work the next and has to walk his doggo. The guys continue to talk games though and they move onto Poké… No, no Pokémon this week, the chat is actually about Sonic the Hedgehog. There have been a fair few things unearthed by people when it comes to Sonic Prototypes and the guys like Sonic and are all interested in looking at things that ‘may have been but did not come to pass’.
Lastly, when the topic changes again, it’s focus is not on a particular game or series, but it goes back to a subject from a previous week and that is talking about game streaming, Stadia, Xcloud are Amazon coming into the fray? What do the guys think? Are they getting paid for the things they are saying about Amazon?
The week your hosts for the GRcade Twitchcast are The Doom Spoon and Pedz.
The conversation starts with the Xbox event that was in London – X019. The guys go through the announcements at the show, but as neither saw it all live, they didn’t see every announcement. However, they did see the majority of the games; they were:
Sea of Thieves
Some of the games shown coming to Gamepass
Tell Me Why
Microsoft Flight Simulator
Age of Empires IV
With X019 talking about Project Xcloud and Google’s Stadia service launching both before the Twitchcast, Doom and Pedz together think it would be a good idea to discuss them both. Stadia is seemingly having a bad launch and Project Xcloud is still in a beta stage, gradually being rolled out to more people.
Lastly, the conversation turns to Pokémon Sword & Shield, in which the guys discuss the game and some of the controversy surrounding it after its launch.
