Episode 159: Just the News

Instead of having a main topic for this week's episode, we decided to have another "Just the News" episode, as we didn't really have anything solid topic-wise for this week and there's been some good news items to cover.  As usual, you get not only news, but top notch commentary on said news.

Episode 152: Destiny Alpha

Episode 152: Destiny Alpha

Sony was kind enough to offer PlayStation 4 players a sneak peak into Destiny the weekend after E3.  The three Thumbstick Athletes who have the PS4 all managed to get into the Alpha, with two getting their codes directly from Bungie, while the third resorted to begging and complaining on reddit until a kindly stranger donated a code.  (You can't keep me down forever Bungie!)  We get the chance to evaluate for ourselves whether Destiny lives up to it's lofty name.

Episode 128: 2014 Games Preview Part 1

Episode 115: SteamOS

With Valve's monumental announcements last week, and our inability to get into GTA Online, Dan and Will do a rundown of the newly announced SteamOS, Steam Machines and Valve's new controller.  We talk about features, options, and what it will mean for PC gamers in the future all while trying to contain fanboyism.  Later on in the episode Eric talks more FIFA 14, Will hadn't had much time to play games, and Dan visits Gamestop to get Wind Waker HD.  Flash player and show notes contained within:
