A Thesis to Explain Plot? - Unscripted Access Episode #143

Unscripted Access Episode #143

The Witcher 3 achieved six million sales, YouTube Gaming has launched, Street Fighter V has new beta dates, and the PlayStation Plus games for September have been announced.

This week is a plethora of many small stories, starting with the success of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, which received six million sales in six weeks. YouTube Gaming has been launched, and is a dedicated gaming media portal. A bigger plus is they can now stream, and we debate whether people will stay at Twitch or switch. Street Fighter V will have new beta dates due to earlier beta issues. Microsoft is limiting entry to the Xbox One preview program also because of large success. The PlayStation Plus games for September have been announced, and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate on PC will have a later release date than on consoles. We also had a rant about Five Nights at Freddy’s and bad writing.

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 #142. Unscripted Access commence!

Maybe One Step Further Back in Time - Unscripted Access Episode #142

Unscripted Access Episode #142

The Xbox One may have backwards compatibility with Xbox original games in the future, Halo 5: Guardians will not have big team battles at launch, and Final Fantasy VII comes to iOS.

This week on Unscripted Access, we vented about the Super Smash Bros. roster! The Xbox One might have backwards compatibility with Xbox…erm…original games. We do not think it is the most difficult considering the original Xbox was made with mostly off-shelf PC parts. Halo 5 will not have big team battles on launch, likely to draw people to the new Halo Warzone. Final Fantasy VII came to iOS, but it’s the old version, marking probably the tenth time the game has been released to a new platform. We also got some Destiny news!

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 #141. Unscripted Access commence!

Looking to Nerf Properly - Unscripted Access Episode #141

Unscripted Access Episode #141

Destiny will be introducing a round of “nerfs” to its most powerful weapons, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture was released, That Game Company is looking for server engineers for online, and Resident Evil 2 is going to have a remake.

Sir John Macaluso took the hosting helm this week and kicked things off with Destiny. The game has gotten quite a lot better since its initial weeks, but a major problem it faces is the sheer power of its most powerful weapons. To compensate, those weapons’ power will be reduced soon, but we are not sure that will solve anything. Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, successor to Dear Esther, was released, and is creating quite a buzz. That Game Company, the studio responsible for Flower and Journey, is looking for server engineers, possibly indicating a larger online experience. Resident Evil 2 is getting a remake, and sparked the debate about remakes; are they really necessary or great ways to re-experience old game titles of long ago.

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 #140. Unscripted Access commence!

Chatpad Expensively - Unscripted Access Episode #140

Unscripted Access Episode #140

Microsoft made many major announcements at Gamescom 2015, Driveclub sold two million copies, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will have the same release date on PC as consoles, and Windows 10 had been out long enough to give initial impressions.

During gamescom 2015, Microsoft made some big announcements, including a chatpad for the Xbox One controller, a special edition Halo 5 Xbox One, and upcoming DVR features for the system. Driveclub had a bad launch and its developer had layoffs, but surprisingly the game managed to sell two million copies before the launch of the PSN Plus version. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will have the same release date on PC as on the consoles. Sadly, no DirectX 12 support to Nick’s dismay. Zombie (formerly Zombie U) is coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC? We do not get it either. And with Windows 10 out a week now, we gave our early impressions.

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 #139. Unscripted Access commence!

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.

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?

PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Games for Gold games for July were announced, a new PS4 hardware revision is circulating, Nolan North leaked information at Metrocon on next Last of Us, Forza Motorsport 6 will have a lot of content, and Batman: Arkham Knight sales on PC have temporarily stopped.

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. A new PS4 model revision is in circulation, but proved to be a minor hardware revision. In news that does stun people, Nolan North, voice actor of Nathan Drake in Uncharted, has leaked information about what has been happening at Naughty Dog, including a new Last of Us game. 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.
