Next Gen News - Episode #96

January 25th, 2012

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

On this week’s show, we discuss the negativity that surrounds our gaming culture, whether it’s in games, on forums or between competing developers. Everyone seems to have a problem with something these days, and frankly, it’s killing our love buzz.

But before we dive into that super depressing topic, we spend a few minutes talking about BioWare’s Star Wars: The Old Republic MMORPG. If you frequent Crave’s gaming section, then you probably already know Joey just recently dove head first into his first MMO experience. Therefore, we give him the spotlight for his 15 minutes of fame (read also: shame) to tell us what he enjoys and what he hates about the MMO scene thus far.

Next Gen News - Episode #95

January 18th, 2012

Are we crazy, or are there a lot of Mac OS X users out there in the world? With Apple computers gaining great marketshare traction, we decided to take this week to turn the show's discussion towards gaming on the Apple platform. Growing up, it wasn't an option…today, it should be.

We also take a few minutes to dump heaps of praise upon a single 2D platformer that released in 2011. Rayman Origins is one of the best games our cast played, we'll try to sell you on it in this show.

Next Gen News - Episode #94

January 11th, 2012

This week’s episode of Next Gen News is all about new consoles, specifically when we should expect them and why rumors can oftentimes deflate anticipation. This conversation was sparked thanks to the lack of a “Xbox Next” reveal during Microsoft’s Consumer Electronics Show keynote, which many theorized would happen. We’re all for new consoles (eventually), but right now just isn’t the time, and why that is is what we dive into on this week’s program.

But don’t worry, we still manage to slip in a few references to Star Wars, Lost Boys and brainstorm an idea for a killer zombie game featuring deceased Compton rappers. Yea, we go there.

Next Gen News - Episode #93

January 5th, 2012

This week's show features Joey, Erik, Alex and Mike as we gather round and talk about the games we're looking forward to most in 2012. There's a lot of talk in this week's show about what's to come, including some time spent chatting about game soundtracks, the zombie genre, Naughty Dog and BioShock Infinite.

Collectively, but the time we were finishing the show, we all realized that 2012 is looking stacked for games. Maybe not as brutal as 2011, but still pretty damn ridiculous. Good times lie ahead for gamers.
