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:

Episode 109: Saint's Row IV

For this week, we cover the greatly anticipated (by Dan anyway) Saint's Row IV.  There was some concern (mostly Dan) that under new publisher Deep Silver, Saint's Row would be more serious and less fun, ruining what made the series fun in the first place.  All of our fears were misplaced however, and even Eric who wasn't totally sold on Saint's Row: The Third ended up loving IV. (Though you wont find that out until a later episode.)   During What We Played Will went back and played Saint's Row: The Third to get a feel for SR before jumping into the fourth game, and Corey again plays a wide variety of games.  Show notes and flash player after the click:

Episode 108: Pikmin 3

Our first episode centered around a Wii U new release, on the action/strategy title Pikmin 3.  Find out what the Athletes thought about the control scheme, and whether or not Nintendo made good use of it's new-fangled controller.  Later on in the episode Corey announces a few more titles to add to his "beaten" list, putting himself very comfortably in the lead.  The XBone also rears its (ugly?) head later on, rounding out the episode.  Show notes and flash player after the jump:

Episode 107: Listener's Choice

In honor of our first two years of podcasting, which started with our first episode being published on iTunes August 8, 2011, the Athletes do an audio version of Reddit's AMA and answer any and all questions posed to us by listeners.  We covered a variety of topics like sports, work, and some personal life stuff....and of course....games.  There was much rejoicing during the episode, a little too much in fact.  But, our listener's know that this happens to us occasionally.  Show notes and flash player after the jump:
