Talking Point: What is your Favourite Type of Donut?

It is that time of the week again, when in to get warmed up ready for the podcast we ramble about a chosen topic. Before we got onto this weeks topic we did however have to handle the comments of the Listeners/Viewers of the previous show – What the hell are Nintendo going to do at E3?

All of the comments can be found at the links below.

As always some of your suggestions and comments were great, we do like when people get involved.

Everybody seems as mixed in opinion as the rest of us. One guy pulled me up on the wording of some of my complaints and I am happy he did as it gave me a chance to better explain what I thought.

Moving on to this weeks topic, finally Gow picked the topic which lead to the discussion What is your Favourite Type of Donut?

Strangely this is one of the most honest and in depth discussions we have had in sometime in my opinion! For me there was only one option – Freshly cooked donut balls, generally found at fairs and seaside towns. For Gow he did like a glazed donut.

There were other topics  as well but you will have to watch to see what they were

Let us know in the comments below which is your favourite and suggest a possible question for the next Talking Point, please do as I seem bad at picking them myself. Everything is fair game, from politics to movies, music to games, hell we will even discuss our favourite womble if you so wish it..

Talking Point: What the hell are Nintendo going to do at E3?

It is that time of the week again, when in to get warmed up ready for the podcast we ramble about a chosen topic. Before we got onto this weeks topic we did however have to handle the comments of the Listeners/Viewers of the previous show – What is your opinion on the VR Trend?

Seems on the whole everyone was quite positive on the whole VR thing, thinking forward to what it is possible and what the industry might do. You also all seem to realise that whatever happens it is going to take some time.

Moving on to this weeks topic, we want to know What the hell are Nintendo going to do at E3?

They are in the proverbial Catch 22 at the moment. Business wise they could really do with cutting their losses on the Wii U and announcing something new to replace it, but they really cant afford to look weak and can a console that is only 2 years old. Particularly when that console was only bought by their hardcore fans.

Talk about biting the hand that feeds!

It is that time of the week again, when in to get warmed up ready for the podcast we ramble about a chosen topic. Before we got onto this weeks topic we did however have to handle the comments of the Listeners/Viewers of the previous show – Which Game sums up your Childhood?

A lot of very good suggestions but you guys wound up Gow as none of you selected a single game, though to be honest neither did we really and the ones we kinda forced upon ourselves was probably wrong

However one overwhelming opinion was a lot of people really liked the LucasArts

Moving on to this weeks topic, we want to know What is your opinion on the VR Trend?

This came about as a result of during the 3 weeks we have been away much happened in that area of the gaming industry. Firstly Sony officially announced project morpheus as their entry into the VR Market, then just before recording Facebook bought the Oculus developers for $2 Billion (Yes I heard Dr Evil as well). So whats your take on the whole thing and will you still be buying one?

Talking Point: What is your favourite Free-To-Play Game?

It is that time of the week again, when in to get warmed up ready for the podcast we ramble about a chosen topic.

Seriously some of the suggestions were just bat shit crazy, we will be contacting the winner asap – I hope you enjoy your stuff

So it seems that EA aren’t happy with King.com trying to steal thier title of Biggest Tosspots in the Industry releasing a version of Dungeon Keeper for Mobile that is so badly done and so much of a money grab that I am not even willing to try and pretend to be impartial about it.

Knowing as we do that there are a lot of very good free to play games out there, we decided rather than ask for your take on Dungeon Keeper (because lets be fair thats quite a one-sided question) we instead want to know What is your favourite Free-To-Play Game?

Lets get a list that we can share around about how it should be done

Good to see gaming finally learn from the Comics properly - People only stay dead for as long as needed

Saints Row VI ‘Gat Is Back’ Trailer

Well the release date is rolling in for Saints Row 4, and as always this means a build up of the hype train.

One thing I was not expecting was the trailer that landed in my mailbox today, but it just goes to show that Saints Row 4 is going to be even more outrageous than even I had hoped for.

This is the kind of announcement I would have expected to have as a shock in the game, having a character return from the dead is kinda a big deal (unless you’re in a comic then its pretty much a given) particularly a character of this importance to the series.

Having Gat back pleases me greatly but it does make me wonder, if they are announcing this now, what the hell are we going to see in the game?

That is one creepy little pikmin Olimar is wielding

Pikmin 3 Webisodes

Now I make no apologies for it, I am very much excited for the upcoming release of Pikmin 3.

This morning the Nintendo UK PR office sent me an email containing a couple of videos, and being as shameless a fan as I am I have to share them with you guys as well. There is a full series of these leading up to the launch so you may see more of these before the game lands.

The first is an overview of the different types of Pikmin you will meet in the game, my favourites are still the red ones.

The Second introduces you to the three new captains that are in this game, I think if I have to pick a favourite its going to be Alph.
