Next Gen News - Episode #80

September 28th, 2011

For this week’s episode of Next Gen News, we kick it old school with just the two original hosts -- Joey Davidson and Erik Norris.

Because we’re currently in a gaming news lull, we decide to talk gaming masterpieces in light of Joey’s perfect 10 awarded to the Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection. Before we get to our choices, we start by defining what a “masterpiece” is, and then we spend the rest of the episode tossing out titles back and forth to gauge each other’s reaction. Some of the choices we throw into the pot may surprise you, honestly. We cast a wide net, to say the least.

Next Gen News - Episode #79

September 21st, 2011

Prep yourselves for this week's masterful introductions; they've been done by our own Alex Keen. It's seriously cheesy business within Crave's Next Gen News, and #79 takes that concept and runs with it.

Alex Keen, nerd. Also, doesn't like The Ghostbusters. We don't even know what to say to him anymore.

This week's show is all about Gears of War 3, its reception, its team, its premise and what it brings to the table. When we're done chatting about that, we move into the realm of Netflix's new Qwikster split and their upcoming offering of video games by mail.

Do we think GameFly needs to brace itself for competition? Listen to find out.

Next Gen News - Episode #78

September 14th, 2011

Welcome back to CraveOnline’s weekly gaming podcast, Next Gen News, with your regular hosts Joey Davidson, Alex Keen and Erik Norris. But that’s not all! We welcome back Mike White to the program! With our powers combined...

This week’s show is dedicated mostly to Nintendo’s Tokyo Game Show press conference (with a brief primer covering the recently announced Red Dead Redemption GOTY Edition). We dive balls deep into Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 discussion, as well as touch on a completely new inventory/upgrade system featured in The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. And after much prodding, Erik finally pushes the rest of the NGN crew to talk about the recently revealed 3DS version of Mario Tennis, which leads to a conversation covering what works so well about the Mario sports titles to close out the show.

Next Gen News - Episode #77

September 7th, 2011

The Next Gen News crew consists of Alex, Erik and Joey this week as we wait patiently for our fourth member, Mike, to make his glorious return (to Joey's basement).

There are a lot of big, big, big games coming up on the horizon for this holiday season. We decided to sit down and pick two games per panel member and chat about how they have us pumped, concerned, nervous and salivating with desire. We touch on games like Gears 3, Batman: Arkham City and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.
