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.

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 #133. Unscripted Access commence!

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!?

Six Months of Value? - Unscripted Access Episode #128

Unscripted Access Episode #128

WB Games detailed more about the Batman: Arkham Knight season pass, Sony will not have a press conference at gamescom, Activision announced Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5, and the next Destiny expansion to be named The Taken King.

“Technical Problems” the raid boss squashed the squish Internet of Fiori and Intern 001, but mass resurrection brought them back! After initial anger, WB Games detailed more about the DLC plans of Batman: Arkham Knight, and things probably do not look as bad so far. We will see. With E3 later in the year and gamescom earlier in the year, Sony has decided to not hold a press conference at gamescom due to limited time for preparation. Tony Hawk games are still a thing, because Activision has announced Pro Skater 5. The next Destiny expansion is to be named The Taken King…but most of us don’t know if we were going to be interested. Also, we talked TVs, TVs, TVs…and smartphone games.

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 #127. Unscripted Access commence!

Unscripted Access Episode #127

Silent Hills has been cancelled, a new season pass for DLC was announced for Batman: Arkham Knight, the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will have huge square area, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III was unveiled.

Welcome to the month of May, where the hype for E3 2015 really starts, and the PS Plus “free games” and Xbox Live Games for Gold lists turned out pretty dry for this year. In major news, Silent Hills has been cancelled, and the PT demo suddenly found itself very valuable for the time being. Mortal Kombat X has an unpopular DLC plan. Guess what? Batman: Arkham Knight now has a season pass, which prompted some anger. The map size for the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has an insane area. The regions already announced have enough area to cover half of a smaller-end medium-sized city. In “shocking news”, Call of Duty: Black Ops III was revealed. In surprising news, Bronson was all for it so far.

Broken Online Is Not Fresh - Unscripted Access Episode #126

Unscripted Access Episode #126

Mortal Kombat X on PC has some serious online issues, PlayStation 4 Share Play is very under-marketed and unknown, and Star Wars Battlefront got a new trailer of excitement.

This week on Unscripted Access, we have John and Bremenn! Mortal Kombat X on PC was the version John bought, but discovered major online lag. Nick promptly went on a rant about how in the world games with online can be launched broken. On things that are working really well, Playstation 4’s Share Play feature is pretty awesome, but apparently nobody has heard about it. Something that everyone has heard of is the new Star Wars Battlefront trailer. In sad news, that game will not have a story mode.

Unscripted Access Episode #125

Mortal Kombat X and Grand Theft Auto V on PC were released, Bloodborne sold over one million copies worldwide, Guitar Hero Live is an actual thing, and a new Star Ocean is coming.

Wow! We had over three hours of stuff to talk about! Grand Theft Auto V is now out on PC, and some of us are probably going to buy GTA V a third time. Mortal Kombat X had quite a lot of excitement behind it, but now has anger behind it due to controversial DLC decisions. Bloodborne is a nice success, with one million sold, and Star Ocean fans can rejoice because a new one is coming! Love 1990s FMVs? Guitar Hero Live is going to have them. Destiny has a new upcoming expansion, called The House of Wolves, but so far it looks more like a mild patch. We also got lots of Nintendo and Blizzard news to talk about. Wow, that was a lot of topics for this episode!
