Next Gen News - Episode #57

March 30th, 2011

Welcome back to Next Gen News, CraveOnline’s weekly gaming podcast. For this week’s episode #57 we have a full house of hosts. Listen in for the smooth sounds of Joey Davidson, Mike White, Alex Keen and Erik Norris.

A fitting alternative name for this episode would be “Listen To Us Ask Joey Questions About The 3DS.” We just started running our review coverage of Nintendo’s new glasses-less 3D handheld, and Joey has been taking the wheel on all the coverage. So he’s the man with all the answers in regards to Nintendo’s latest hardware endeavour. We talk tech, the 3D effect, launch games, and battery life.

As per usual, subscribe to the show on iTunes and follow us on Twitter at @CraveNGN.

Next Gen News - Episode #56

March 23rd, 2011

Welcome back to Next Gen News, CraveOnline’s weekly gaming podcast with your hosts Joey Davidson, Mike White and Erik Norris.

Let’s not beat around the bush; this past week has been incredibly light on the news front. That’s why we’re turning this into a “What We’re Play” type of episode. We cover Homefront, Crysis 2, Rift, Dragon Age 2, Minecraft and You Don’t Know Jack. OK, that last one isn’t entirely accurate. But Joey does have a funny story involving that phrase.

Also, dinosaur month continues here on Next Gen News with our awesome introduction theme. By the way, Joey and Mike do not know it’s dinosaur month. Ssshhhh.

As per usual, subscribe to our show on iTunes and follow us on Twitter at @CraveNGN. We post links to articles, funny videos/pictures, and host giveaways. For example, we just gave away a really awesome Bulletstorm nutcracker. We thought about keeping it for ourselves, but then we got in a charitable mood (Joey was not happy about that). But if you’re not one of our Twitter followers, the opportunity to win something like that doesn’t exist. So get on with it already!

Next Gen News - Episode #55

March 16th, 2011

We spent four grueling days in the wilds of Boston and a convention center to bring you our opinions concerning the industry's upcoming games. Most nights were spent in the same bar next to the hotel drinking beer that tasted like bacon and eating cheeseburgers topped with a lump of smooth peanutbutter.

We meant to do a wrap-up show for you on Saturday night. But that same bar held us until 2am, and then Dalight Savings Time reared its ugly head and turned 2am into 3am. And by the time we finished walking the streets of Boston while singing the Foundation's "Build Me Up Buttercup" it was approaching 4am.

But, hey, we're back. This week's show is a wrap-up of everything we saw at PAX. We cover our favorites, the disappointments (what little there were) and what games you should be psyched for.

Next Gen News - PAX East 2011 - Episode #1

March 10th, 2011

We have arrived in Boston (after a few hitches, we might add). And to celebrate our first night in Beantown, we've recorded a special PAX East preparation podcast for your listening pleasure. This speical episode's hosts are Joey Davidson, Erik Norris, Mike White and, new to the show, CraveOnline's Video Editor Mike Breiburg.

We're going to be honest, tonight's episode is light on actual video game discussion. Sure, we're about to embark on a journey that takes us into the bowels of a video game-specific convention, but this show is spotlighting everything leading up to that. We've been through some shit before safely arriving in Boston, so we're going to comment on that insanity. Listen into this powwow for talk about Zelda messenger bags, lonely men carrying single red roses on a quest to find true love, microphone dirty bombs and the terror of flight cancelllations. Oh, we also make a man's dream come true by reuniting him with Dunkin' Donut's coffee after a break of 8.5 years.

Lock and load, and keep it quiet for the shirtless man with a meeting in the early AM.

Next Gen News - Episode #54

March 9th, 2011

Welcome back to Next Gen News, CraveOnline’s weekly gaming podcast. This week’s Episode #54 features the standard hosts of Joey Davidson and Erik Norris, as well as the rest of the Crave gaming crew, Alex Keen and Mike White. This is our first 4-person rodeo in quite some time. We handle it less than gracefully.

This is our PAX East hype episode! Inside this audible nugget of information you’ll find us talking about what we’re excited to check out at this year’s PAX East convention, which kicks off in just a matter of days if our sundials are anything to go by. We also discuss how grueling and exhausting the convention scene can get, as well as how we’re really “excited” for cosplayers. Hard emphasis on the air quotes there. Oh yea, we also make a lot of references to dinosaurs this week. And trust us when we say that every dino-rific joke dropped has absolutely nothing to do with video games. Yay, tangents!

As per usual, subscribe to our show on iTunes and follow us on Twitter (@CraveNGN). We’ve even included a link below that will direct you to CraveOnline’s PAX East coverage hub so you can keep up with all the shenanigans that happen this coming weekend. Also, expect multiple podcasts at PAX East from this crew, our goal is one every night to round-up our coverage. Fingers crossed, folks!
