Welcome one and all to the final regular Utterly G33k of the year! Sadly Steven Petrella could not join us today, however Wally and Daron talk about story driven games, visual novels, and what happens when you re-watch the original Star Wars Trilogy once you’ve grown up. (As much as we’ve actually grown up). Oh, and also apparently cereal is an Amiibo now. So that’s the thing. 2017 has been weird.
Welcome once again to Utterly G33k! This week we update you on the ongoing shenanigans surrounding Star Wars Battlefront II. This includes the U.S. Government, player retaliation and Rubber Bands! We also dig into similar problems arising in Destiny 2, as well as look at the upcoming new releases!
Welcome! This week we continue the downward spiral that is Electronic Arts’ attempt at Star Wars: Battlefront II. We also reminisce on the wonder and joy of renting video games for a weekend as well as discuss Mario Bros. The Movie and potential future Mario Bros. movies.
Loot crates. Loot Crates! LOOT CRATES! Loot crates? loot crates. Grinding? Randy Pitchford. Telltale
Welcome one and all to another week of Utterly G33k! We start off this week’s show with a movie round up! We then shift into depressing news about studio closings, before getting into Blizzcon and all the good that was announced there!
The whole gang’s back for a super sized episode! We catch up on the news, finally have our big Blade Runner 2049 discussion, we discuss Paris Games Week and a bevvy of new game announcements!
Short one for you this week! With Steve absent we’ve decided to hold off on news until his return to get his perspective on things. In the meantime Wally and Daron catch you up on what they’ve been playing, some announcements and upcoming releases!
The gang’s all here this week for another episode! This week we continue our discussion into loot boxes while also talking at length about Guild Wars 2, Middle Earth: Shadow of War, Axiom Verge and Steamworld Dig 2! We also dig into the unsettling acquisition of Humble Bundle by IGN… seems a bit shady to us.
