The Recurring Bosscast: 028: Celebrating One Year of Bosscasting

Episode 28 marks the one year anniversary of the Bosscast being on Splitkick. Huzzah!!

Besides recollecting a bit on the year behind us, Jett, Mat, and I give the good ol’ Xbox 360 a final farewell as we officially enter into the eighth generation of video game consoles. What were our favorite games, least favorite games, best features of the console, and even the games that might become collectible in the future (!), all that a more in this episode of the Recurring Bosscast.

Review: Pokemon X and Y

Pokemon X and Y LogoBy now you know what you’re getting with each new Pokemon game: more adorable creatures to catch, train, and battle, new regions to explore, and a lighthearted story that  ties everything together. For more than fifteen years Nintendo has been releasing games that follow this very formula time and time again, and each new version sells millions. In no way a departure from the series form, Pokemon X and Y take small steps towards making an already great franchise even better. Read the rest of this entry »

Sunday Roundup: 10/20/13

New Games (10-20-13)Man, these GameStop deals really need to stop. I’ve been dropping $30-$40 a week on these Buy 2 Get 1 Free, 3 for $15, and 2 for $10 sales. Granted, they’re all really good deals in my opinion, and I’ve been able to track down some games I’ve been searching awhile for, but still! Maybe what I really need is just another store to have a sale so I can ransack their racks and let the half dozen GameStop’s around me replenish. Whatever the future may hold, here are this week’s games. Quite an assortment, too!

Review: Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl

SoulFinalSome RPGs are about telling a story.

Some are about finding the best loot.

Some are just about surviving, plain and simple.

And then there are RPGs like Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl that has the whole package: it constantly pits you against fearsome foes, always tempts you with a shiny new piece of equipment, and has an interesting story to boot. Etrian Odyssey Untold acts as both a remake and reimagining of the original DS game, and incorporates aspects from the recent Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan to create a game that is arguably the best in the series and one of the finest in the entire dungeon crawler genre.

The Recurring Bosscast: 027: Spit Hot Fire

After sitting out for an episode I’m back on the Bosscast with Mat and Jett!

With all the talks focusing the past few weeks on Grand Theft Auto V, I’ve been feeling a bit left out of the gaming loop in terms of what’s new. But all that is going to change with the release of Pokemon X and Y. In this newest episode of the Recurring Bosscast I lead a discussion on all things Pokemon! Unfortunately Mat and Jett don’t share my enthusiasm for the series… nonetheless, Pikachu and crew are back!
