Tragically Hilarious Scheme - Unscripted Access Episode #139

Unscripted Access Episode #139

Rocket League has reached five million downloads, Sony’s PlayStation 4 market share in Europe is over 70% in Europe, PlayStation Plus games for August were announced, and Windows 10 has been released.

This week, our news was not big save for a release of a major new operating system, so it was off to plot…different ways to be entertained. Rocket League has reached five million downloads, brining rocket RC kind of cars to soccer. PlayStation Plus “free” games have been mediocre for a while, and the list for August 2015 have been announced. The biggest news the past week is the release of Windows 10. Unfortunately, due to the really fresh state of the operating system, not much could be said about it yet.

We will leave the rest to your ears, but trust me, this is not an episode to be missed. Unscripted Access commence!

Execution Still Needs to Be Fixed - Unscripted Access Episode #138

Unscripted Access Episode #138

Gears of War Ultimate Edition for PC will be released after the Xbox One version, keyboard and mouse support is coming to the Xbox One, and the Halo 5: Guardian’s Collector’s Edition contents have been revealed.

Microsoft had quite a few things going on the past week, starting with the announcement that Gears of War Ultimate Edition on PC will be delayed past the Xbox One version release date. After Batman: Arkham Knight on PC, we understand the decision…but felt Gears of War will still be fundamentally broken. Keyboard and mouse support is coming to the Xbox One, but we were not sure if people can even practically use it. Halo 5 is one of the blockbusters of the year, and now the contents of the $250 collector’s edition have been revealed. Some small Nintendo news happened, and PS4 got a minor system software update.

We will leave the rest to your ears, but trust me, this is not an episode to be missed. As always, we wrap up the show answering the various questions received from our last episode from our dedicated audience who enjoyed Unscripted Access Episode #137. Unscripted Access commence!

Too Young to Leave the World - Unscripted Access Episode #137

Unscripted Access Episode #137

Nintendo CEO Saturo Iwata passes away at the age of fifty-five, Metal Gear Solid V now has new official box art without Kojima’s name on it, and CD Projekt RED announced that The Witcher 3’s two DLC packs combined will be almost as big as The Witcher 2.

It has been a sad week for the world, as Nintendo CEO Saturo Iwata passed away at the young age of only fifty-five due to a bile duct growth. We reflected on his career as head of Nintendo, when he led the company during the days of the extremely successful Nintendo DS and Wii systems of the 2000s. In a move to create further resentment towards Konami, Kojima’s name has been completely removed from the new official box art of Metal Gear Solid V. Fans responded by creating altered box art covers for printing. Those who are big fans of The Witcher 3 will find that the upcoming two DLC packs will be almost as big as The Witcher 2, all for only $25. And we finally fixed the bug with our comments section, which means we have comments to answer!

We will leave the rest to your ears, but trust me, this is not an episode to be missed. As always, we wrap up the show answering the various questions received from our last episode from our dedicated audience who enjoyed Unscripted Access Episode #136. Unscripted Access commence!

Less Popular PlayStation Could Have Existed - Unscripted Access Episode #136

Unscripted Access Episode #136

An alleged prototype of the “Nintendo PlayStation” was discovered, Project Morpheus is launching in 2016 but with no price info yet, and Reggie Fils-Aime defends the latest Metroid game.

With one of us just about on the brink of wiping out onto the bed, we tackled what few news stories we could manage to scrap together in the dead middle of summer. News had hit that an alleged “Nintendo PlayStation” prototype had surfaced, a system that could play SNES cartridges as well as CD-based games. We did not hear much about Project Morpheus at PlayStation during E3, which was surprising, but the VR device is coming in 2016, but no price information until about “five months to release”. The latest Metroid game announcement got a lot of backlash from fans, but Reggie Fils-Aime came to defend it, stating that people should at least give the game a chance before judging. Sega says they will seriously put quality into their games but…do companies not all say that?

We will leave the rest to your ears, but trust me, this is not an episode to be missed. Unscripted Access commence!

Short and sweet, and to kick things off, we ran through another potentially mediocre month of PlayStation Plus free games and Xbox Live Games for Gold for July.

Forza Motorsport 6 will have lots of content to keep us racing fans happy, and Batman: Arkham Knight on the PC had enough problems that sales of the game have been stopped on the platform.

Post-E3 2015 Impressions! - Unscripted Access Episode #134

Unscripted Access Episode #134

The Gamer Access staff gave their post-E3 impressions on two major press conferences and Nintendo Direct, Batman: Arkham Knight was pulled from Steam due to performance issues, and Persona 5 is still hoping to launch in North America this Fall 2015.

With E3 2015 over, The Gamer Access staff talked their impressions of the Xbox Media Briefing and the PlayStation Press Conference, as well as Nintendo Direct, all from E3 2015. We also covered some news stories that happened in the past week, including major performance issues in the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. The issues were bad enough that the game was pulled off from sale on Steam until the issue gets resolved. Persona 5 is being planned to launch in both Japan and North America during Fall this year, but some of us doubt that.

Also on hype is the rumor that Dark Souls 3 may be unvieled at E3, but may not have the same levels of amazing as Bloodborne.

A First Party Plan for 2015 - Unscripted Access Episode #131

Unscripted Access Episode #131

Industry insiders say Sony will show two unannounced Games behind closed doors, Andrew house may have suggested a weak first-party lineup for PlayStation 4 in 2015, and The Witcher 3 encounters frame rate issues on all platforms.

There is some PlayStation news, average, good, and bad. To start, PlayStation Plus games for June 2015 were announced. The vague news is two industry insiders say Sony will show two unannounced games behind closed doors. What is not good news is that during a financial meeting, Andrew House said PlayStation 4 third-party content is key, because 2015 first-party-wise is spent “investing”. The Witcher 3 is shaping up to be pretty good, but performance issues and annoyances tend to get in the way. In iffy news, a Majora’s Mask lamp is available only outside North America on Club Nintendo. And where are our questions!?
