Next Gen News - Episode #100

February 22nd, 2012

Holy shit. We made it! Welcome to the 100th episode of Next Gen News, CraveOnline's weekly gaming podcast.

For our 100th birthday we're tackling the past, present and future of our gaming lives. In round robin style, each of our panelists -- Erik Norris, Alex Keen and Mike White -- break down what got them into gaming in the first place, what they're currently enjoying, and concluding with what they want to see from the gaming industry in the future. This leads to quite the conversation that covers Alex's life-long obsession with Gauntlet, Erik's troubles with The Karate Kid 2 game on NES, Mike's love of free-to-play games, and a lot in between.

Next Gen News - Episode #99

February 15th, 2012

This week's episode is all about Double Fine and the glory that is, potentially, Psychonauts 2. While the game isn't confirmed by any stretch of the imagination, it has been popping up on news outlets all over the web.

We're also talking about Double Fine's recent Kickstarter endeavor. The company aimed to raise $400,000 in over a month for a point-and-click adventure game. Instead, they raised more than $1,000,000 in a 24 hour period.

Finally, we'll gloss over the PS Vita as our review unit showed up. Listen in, subscribe, follow us on Twitter.

We break down why in this week’s show. We also take some time to talk about all the big releases coming out this week, ranging from Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, The Darkness 2, Shank 2 and more.
