Next Gen News - Episode #88

November 23rd, 2011

Welcome to our 88th episode of Next Gen News, CraveOnline’s weekly gaming podcast with your hosts Joey Davidson, Alex Keen, Mike White and myself, Erik Norris.

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we turn our attention to the day that follows it -- Black Friday. There are a lot of great gaming deals to be found on Black Friday at various brick-and-mortar retailers scattered across the Unites States, as well as on digital services such as Xbox Live Arcade and Steam. We run down some of best offers and explain why you shouldn’t pass them up. We also find time to make fun of Alex for his terrible taste in pretty much everything.

Xbox is officially 10 years old. Guess what… so is Halo.

On this week's show, Erik, Joey, Mike and Alex gather 'round to talk about what made the Xbox what it was and how strong of a machine it turned out to be. We celebrate the coming of Microsoft in the gaming world, the mastery of classics like Halo and the sway of global development from east to west.

It's another episode of pondering, arguments, making fun of Erik and group discussion. If you dig the 'cast, subscribe, comment and review us on iTunes. You'll find links to all of that and our Twitter account below.

Next Gen News - Episode #86

November 9th, 2011

Welcome to Episode #86 of Next Gen News with your hosts Erik Norris, Joey Davidson, Mike White and Alex Keen. On this week’s show we’re talking about games with awesome stories to tell that are unfortunately bogged down by crappy gameplay. Think of this show as the inverse of what we talked about last week.

And what’s the reasoning for this topic, you might ask? Well, Joey is not a fan of Uncharted 3’s gameplay at all. Gasp! So we’re using Uncharted 3 as a springboard to discuss other games that fall into this category. Listen in for our thoughts on Assassin’s Creed, Brutal Legend, Fable III, Splinter Cell and more!
