This week Fred and Trees talk about the infamous Xbox Showcase that left almost everyone less than impressed.  Trees has started up Paper Mario: The Origami King and returns to the drastically changed world of No Man’s Sky.  Fred played a bunch of demos on Xbox, gave up on The Witcher 2, completely played Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap as well as Resident Evil 0, and finally struggled with Shadow of the Colossus (PS4).

This week it’s almost no real life and all games.  Trees and Fred discuss the glory days of Playstation Home, HD Retrovision cables and the bubble economy of second hand gaming.  Trees has been working his way through Nascar Heat 5 (and enjoying it) as well as delving into Mr. Driller in Drill Land on the Switch.  Fred continues to work through The Witcher 2 and Halo 2 co-op with his daughter, while also going all retro on Saturdays with Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap and of all things Burn: Cycle on the Phillips CD-i.

Trees is back from his vacation, Fred is just relaxing, and things are starting to get back to normal.  Trees takes a break from Kingdom Come: Deliverance to try out his new copy of Nascar Heat 5, Infinite Mini Golf on PSN Now, and Observation on Game Pass.  Meanwhile Fred is having random nights on Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance and after finishing the first book, started on a little game called The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.

This week Fred joined up with Ali for an impromptu discussion about…really anything.  Very few talk of actual games but fun discussions to be had and with Trees off on vacation this made a perfect Ep 23.  The video of this podcast, in case you want to watch instead of just listen, can be found below.

This week both Fred and Trees are talking about adventures with cabins and a few movies before jumping into games.  Trees headlines with a forgotten 3DS gem, Pocket Card Jockey, before delving into another adventure in Kingdom Come: Deliverance.  Fred is still deep in The Last of Us Part II and wrapping up his impressions before a brief (spoiler free) discussion about the coverage of the game.

Video Game Purists Ep 20: Color Me Impressed

This week is all about comfort gaming.  Whether it’s Lego Pirates of the Carribean or Assassin’s Creed, Fred and Trees are playing what they enjoy.  There’s plenty of titles discussed and it all wraps with a lengthy discussion on the PS5 reveal.  This discussion is more about the games rather than the episode Fred and Andy previously did.

Lets Talk About PS5

Fred is joined by Andy of 42 Level One to discuss what yesterday’s presentation actually meant in the lead up to the launch of Playstation 5.  While opinions on personal taste in the games shown will be abundant, we wanted to talk about the business decisions Sony is making and what it means to the average consumer.  Sadly, communication from Sony is poor on this front and it’s due to some of these decisions, as we discuss. If you are scratching your head after this presentation, you want to listen to this episode.
