Press X | Video Game Conversations

Summary: Is that a bird? Is it a plane? No, of course not. Why would you even confuse those things? They look nothing alike. Welcome to the Geek Show Podcast Network’s very own video games podcast where we look at everything from indie titles and Japanese oddities to the latest AAA titles, but only as long as they're interesting or cool. No episodes on Black Ops IV: Zombies in 'nam total ultimate edition, thank you very much. When we're not doing that we’ll be spinning yarns or sticking our noses behind the curtain but ssshhhh you never heard that from us. Stay with us here on Press X for a good old chinwag about video games.

 38: PX38 - What Would Make You Boycott A Game | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2911

Tis the season to be grumpy, and nobody complains like a gamer (or spits their pacifier out/throws their toys out of the pram). Now there are plenty of reasons to complain about a game (micro-transactions, pay-walls, pay-to-win, gorily-detailed hunting, forcing developers to censor their games after signing exclusivity contracts, etc), but some are more valid than others - and yes, we are looking very pointedly at the developers of Playing History 2: Slave Trade here. Anyway, before we get into the meat of the show there’s a bit of time for Producer Rob to introduce to the joys of Moonlighter - an indie dungeon crawler with shop mechanics from Digital Sun and 11 bit Studios that he’s bee addicted to recently.   After that it’s time for Andy and Mark to join the fray for this week’s big question - What Would Make You Boycott a Video Game?  If you've enjoyed this podcast then please share us with your friends or leave us a rating on your podcast app of choice.

 37: PX37 - Video Games Set In The Wild West | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2445

Andy, Mark and Producer Rob join forces once again to tackle some of the interesting topics about video games, and with the release of the highly-anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2 the gang decide to take a look at the games set in the Old West. But before all of that it’s time to catch up with what we’ve been playing and as usual, everybody’s got something different with Mark pouring more hours into Dragon Quast XI: and the Kemono Friedns puzzle game, Andy investigating ancient ruins and the art of the suplex in Shadow of the Tomb Raider and WWE 2K19, and Rob exploring the remarkably strange world of Yakuza Kiwami 2. After that it’s time to grab a six-shooter, saddle-up, and ride through the wastelands of video game nostalgia to find out why the Old West is an inspirational yet marginalised time period in the medium. And like any good gunslinger, they pay special attention to the horses.

 36: PX36 - How Did Incomplete Games Become the Norm? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2442

Video games are a multi-billion dollar industry, so why has it become normal for developers and publishers to release unfinished games? Join Andy and Rob as they investigate this peculiar problem, and also why a bunch as salty as gamers continue to allow the industry to get away with it.

 PX35 - What Counts As Video Game Merchandise? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2788

Merchandising has long been part of the lifeblood of entertainment and media (who wouldn’t want a plushie of the Demogorgon from Stranger Things), but sometimes the products associated with a particular title can head in some strange, disturbing and bizarre directions. After a quick chat about the games that they’re currently playing (Shenmue Remastered, Spider-Man (PS4), and Dragon Quest XI), it’s time for Andy, Mark and Producer Rob to venture into the dark alleys of video games merchandise. Join them to discover some of the oddities that lurk in the shadows of gaming. #Merchandise #Collectables #Posters #ArtBooks #TShirts #Caps #Figures #Toys #Statues #ActionFigures #LEGO #CityUndercover #TheIncredibles2 #Spyro #Skylanders #DisneyInfinity #Amiibo #Nintendo #LEGODimensions #GuitarHero #Rocksmith #DJHero #StrategyGuides #Advertising #Marketing #PopVinyl #PlayArts #Nendroid #Figma #TheGeekShow #VideoGames #Games #Gaming #PressX #Podcast #SpyroTheDragon

 PX34 - Which Games Deserve a Reboot, Remake or Remaster? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3351

With all of the remakes, reboots and remasters that are going around in video games these days, it seems like developers and publishers are determined to plumb the depths of gaming history to unearth some long-forgotten treasures.

 PX33 - Are Collector’s Editions Worth The Money? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3283

The video games market is expensive and over-saturated, but collector’s editions, special editions and the ubiquitous “game of the year” editions have generally held a special place in the hearts and wallets of gamers. The question is, are they really worth all of that extra money? Gaming is, after all, an expensive hobby, and not everyone has a bottomless wallet. Join Andy, Mark and Producer Rob as they venture down one what turns out to be one of gaming’s stranger rabbit holes in an effort to find out. #TheGeekShow #VideoGames #Gaming #News #Nintendo #PS4 #Switch #PC #XboxOne #PressX #SquareEnix #Handheld #Consoles #Sony #Microsoft #Nintendo #CollectorsEditions #SpecialEditions #GameOfTheYear #PSVita #3DS #Bioware #Bethesda #Codemasters

 PX32 - What Games Are You Proud Of Completing? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2529

On the last episode we challenged each other to play a game that we owned that we didn't buy and wasn't released this year, and the results are definitely … weird. Andy found himself playing an obscure online game called Dino D-Day and the Omen-esque horror Lucius 2\. On the other hand, Mark sample the "My First JRPG" mechanics of Guardian's Crusade on the PS1 before he got distracted and wound up playing Stranded Kids on the Gameboy Color. As for Producer Rob, he decided to take Dragoneer's Aria on the PSP for a spin. Anyway, our main discussion this week is about the games that we've completed, in particular the ones that we're proud of completing, which naturally leads us on to the subject of trophies and achievement hunting … If you've enjoyed this podcast, then please follow us on Twitter @TGS_TheGeekShow or on other social media by searching for [The Geek Show](http://thegeekshow.co.uk).

 PX31 - How Many Games Haven't You Finished? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2505

Like movies and music, video games are one of those strange things that you wind up collecting without thinking about it. They just seem to accumulate over time until your risk life and limb trying to sort through them. But how many of them have you actually played properly, and more importantly how many of them have you finished? Join the Press X gang who, after a brief chat about Conan: Exiles, Theme Park, Farcry Arcade and Touhou Kabuto Burst Battle, wax nostalgic about games magazines, demo discs (and tapes), and other unfinished tales of their childhood.

 PX30 - Are Google Making a Games Console? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2187

Everybody wants to get into video games, but rumour has it that perpetual late starters Google (think about it), are making their own console. So what does that mean for the manufacturers like Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo? After our usual look at what we’ve been playing (Panzermadels, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, Gravel and Onrush), Mark, Andy and Prob stare at Google and take an irreverent journey through video games before somehow winding up in a very strange classroom … If you've enjoyed this podcast, then please follow us on Twitter @TGS_TheGeekShow or on other social media by searching for The Geek Show.
