Talking Point: What was the most impressive thing from CES 2014?

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 Games should we Play Drunk?

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

You gave us a decent selection of games in there, we should be able to get most of them done.

This lead us on to picking a new topic and as it was going on this weekend naturally CES was fresh on her mind so we talked about  What was the most impressive thing from CES 2014?

There are were actually quite a few gaming related topics amongst the wearable tech and curved TV’s, from PlayStation Now to Project Christine and even news on the Steam Machines. While we went on about it I am not sure we picked favourites, but what did you think was the biggest and best bit of news from CES this year?

Batman: Arkham Asylum #2 – Zsasz should really watch the Rafters

I decided to give Batman: Arkham Asylum another playthrough. Unfortunately as I was not intending to release this there is no commentary, but then this is one of those games that really speaks for itself anyway.

The Chase is on, Joker is on the loose in the asylum and we have to do something about that. However first things first someone let the Fruitloop that is Zsasz get loose and he’s got his hands on a guard.

After sorting him out we start to make some headway on chasing down the Joker but he is already well ahead of us, he has captured Commissioner Gordon.

This simply just not do.

Batman: Arkham Asylum #1 – Dropping off the Joker

I decided to give Batman: Arkham Asylum another playthrough. Unfortunately as I was not intending to release this there is no commentary, but then this is one of those games that really speaks for itself anyway.

We enter the game with the Dark Knight once again returning the Joker to Arkham Asylum. However something seems wrong as the Joker didn’t put up anywhere near the usual level of fight.

Turns out the Joker has something up his sleeve that requires him to be at the Asylum – this can never be a good thing.

Talking Point: Which Games should we Play Drunk?

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 last weeks show – What are Your Aims and Goals for next year?

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

A wide range of goals were had by all it seems

This week however there was not as much chatter on the new topic as this really is a question aimed at you the viewers and that is Which Games should we Play Drunk?

Now if you have been watching the youtube channel for a while you will have seen us play games drunk before, including Hearthstone (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fi0Vo-poWxw) and Surgeon Simulator (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYbfqyALYW0) – We plan on doing a lot more of this in the new year and want your suggestions as to games we should play in these upcoming videos.

Lets Play Hearthstone:Heroes of Warcraft – First Play Part 3

Hearthstone:Heroes of Warcraft is the digital trading card game that is currently under development by Blizzard, based on the Heroes and Characters of the Warcraft Universe.

These first few videos are simply of my poking my way through the very early stages of the game, because so that I got to enjoy the experience of discovering everything for the first time I had kept myself away from spoilers. (there are now a lot of videos in my watch later list I shall be taking hints from)

As a result I apologize for how little I was talking at some points, I was engrossed in the game and focusing on the battle at hand.

I even manage to get my first online Victory – I could get used to that!
