The GRcade Twitchcast Episode 29 – Talking Games and #BLM!

On the GRcade Twitchcast this week we have Jenuall, Pedz and Victor Mildew hosting along with newcomer Corazon De Leon.

The first port of call is talking about some of the games that we have played and Cora starts with Resident Evil 6 chat and the chat revolves around how the game is, how it is compared to other Resident Evil Games and is it a good or bad game and some brief chat of the other games in the series.

Victor then talks about Assetto Corsa Competizione a Racing Game that is very much a sim and simulates the Blancpain GT3 Series and then Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition which is a game that a few people have played a little, or played the Wii version. The discussion here goes into the gameplay, music, the updated visuals and of course the voice acting.

Jenuall talks about briefly about Doom, the classic from the ’90s and then he talks about Super Mario Maker 2 and the ‘Are You A Master Mario Maker?’ Jenuall talks about his experience with Mario Maker and how he;’s finding he AYAMMM? Competition.

Then, coming back to Cora he brings up Half-Life 2/The Orange Box and has recently played through Half-Life 2 and both episodes, having not really played them in the past. During this talk, Victor has to leave for his is 10 PM Dog Walking. Lastly, Wolfenstein is talked about.

The topics here shift from What we’ve played to what’s happening in the news.

Well, first off there’s the Sega Game Gear Micro. It’s a tiny version of the Game Gear and doesn’t really resonate with the hosts. Briefly touched upon is also Sega’s Arcade Cloud service and a little chat about Arcade Games.

The last topic of conversion is the Black Lives Matter protests. The topic comes up due via Sony, Nintendo and Xbox showing support via Twitter, many things are brought up here including the question is it enough? This is a long conversation and is probably the most serious conversation that has been had on this podcast, even though this is a gaming podcast the guys personally felt that this was too big of a cause to not talking about it.

The GRcade Twitchcast Episode 28 – Catching up and Checking In!

This week the hosts of The GRcade Twitchcast are Doom Spoon, Pedz and Victor Mildew.

This is the first Twitchcast in a while and the idea was to have a shorter podcast and just have a catch-up.

The guys start off talking about Animal Crossing: New Horizons. What’s discussed is how often they play it, if they’ve stopped, what he game is like for them, what hole it fills in their gaming life compared to other games and simply if they like it.

Moving on from Animal Crossing and the discussion turns to Half-Life: Alyx, where Victor explains how the gameplay and also lets us knows how thoughts about the game in how good it is, how he feels it would be without VR and just his general views on its general quality.

After that talk turns to puzzle games, where The Witness is briefly mentioned before it turns to chat about Picross S4 and the Picross series in general and how there are just certain games whether you like games or not that partners just seem to really enjoy playing together.

Talk turns a little more serious with some talk about the Corona Virus. The chat is more about how everyone is coping with the isolation or, having to work in a place where getting the virus could have some serious impacts. The guys say that there is a thread on GRcade that if you need to chat about the impact that the isolation on you mentally then you should absolutely go there and talk, talking can really help when emotions are running high or mental wellbeing is low, so please if you need to come and talk in the ‘Depression, Anxiety, or other Mental Health Conditions’  thread.  There are also helplines to call if you need to talk to somebody to help you through this time. a quick google search will bring up tons of results for your area and beyond.
