Next Gen News - Episode #68

June 29th, 2011

This week's show is all about the new surge of free-to-play gaming that's taking the industry by storm. Erik, Joey and Alex sit down to chat the nature of the model, how it succeeds, where it takes its roots and its potential pitfalls.

It's a winding series of rants, branches and turns throughout the entire show, so prep yourself to flip-flop all over some random diatribes and sidebars.

That's how we roll.

Next Gen News - Episode #67

June 22nd, 2011

We are back with another episode of Next Gen News, CraveOnline’s weekly gaming podcast with your hosts Joey Davidson, Alex Keen and Erik Norris.

This week’s topic focuses solely on the handheld gaming market. Now that The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D has released, Joey, Alex and Erik discuss the draw of buying Nintendo’s 3D-enabled handheld for those who haven’t already adopted. This whirlwind discussion then leads straight into the PlayStation Vita and our stance on Sony’s upcoming handheld. Find out what it’s going to take to get us to invest our hard-earned duckets into these handhelds. Short answer: a lot for Alex and Erik.

As per usual, you can subscribe to our show on iTunes, as well as follow us on Twitter (@CraveNGN). Feel free to leave us a comment below or a review on iTunes. Until next time, game on!

Next Gen News - Episode #66

June 15th, 2011

This week's show marks the end of E3 2011 for the Crave gaming channel. Seriously, we don't want to talk about it anymore. We've hit you with loads of coverage, so we're more than sure you're ready to move on as well. We can't blame you for that.

For #66 we cover the E3 press conferences in great detail. We talk about the impressions each show left us with and what went right and what went wrong. The answer to that? Oh so much.

We also spend some time covering some games that may not be on your radar in the looming shadow of threequels and huge franchises.

All that and more. Listen in!

Next Gen News - Episode #65

June 1st, 2011

We’re back to talking about Activision on Next Gen News. This week sees Joey Davidson, Erik Norris and Alex Keen buckle down to discuss Activision’s newly-announced Call of Duty online platform, Call of Duty Elite.

There’s a lot of misinformation about the service floating around the vast internet, so we try our best to set the record straight. But don’t worry, we still manage to slip in a few pot shots, as well as give Activision a new “Pro Price” slogan to live by.

As per usual, follow on us Twitter (@CraveNGN) and subscribe to the show on iTunes. Trust us, it’s in your best interest to have us whispering into your ear-holes once a week.
