Podcast: Renowned Explorers: International Society – Game Review

I’ve kind of been spamming you all with Game Warp stuff this week and just other randomness but I’m also gearing up for a crazy weekend so trying to rest up and get other housekeeping bits in order.

E3 is this weekend and we’re getting ready to step into gear to catch all the conference streams and the releasing timely recaps (just like we did last year), as well as get an E3 impressions recorded. However, we also don’t want to have a huge gap in the podcast so we did a mini episode to review Renowned Explorers: International Society, a strategic turn-based adventure game that takes the player into selecting a trio to trek the world and trying to be the most renowned within five expeditions.

We didn’t even take a look at their new expansion, Emperor’s Challenge so expect some streams of that (and other games like June’s featured game Seasons After Fall) over the E3 weekend as we wait in between conferences and just generally make this an all-around gaming craze. If you haven’t already and are into this, we stream over on Twitch. You can follow us HERE to get the notifications on when we do stream. We also announce on Facebook and Twitter. Both fun places to follow if you like gaming news.

Game Warp Podcast: ‘Little Nightmares’ Review & Theories

The next episode is here! This time Elwood and I sit down to review Little Nightmares, a game by Swedish game developers Tarsier Studios. You may recognize them as they were involved with the Little Big Planet series. Now, they decided to make their first original game which turns out to be this 3D puzzle-stealth platformer, no narrative, atmospheric game starring a 9 year old yellow raincoat clad girl that tries to escape the Maw which has held her captive.

We start off with a discussion and review of the game with minor spoilers. After the ratings, we jump into an additional conversation on theories for those who have played this game and have heavy spoiler alert.

If you haven’t caught up with the game, we have an entire playthrough on our Youtube channel here.

Game Warp Podcast: Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition Review (Guest: Drew’s Movie Reviews)

The next episode of Game Warp Podcast is here!

April’s featured game is Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition chosen by our special guest reviewer joining us, Drew at Drew’s Movie Reviews. You may know him for his cool features like his trailers on Monday and the Wednesday Quotes challenge segments or maybe you know him because he is my co-host for the Ultimate 80s and 90s Blogathon from this and last year. Whatever it is, believe it or not, Drew may be partially responsible for me actually getting back into the gaming world more. Plus, while he does play very different genres of games than I do, he is quite the avid gamer behind the scenes of his movie reviews blog.

Guacamelee!, developed by DrinkBox Studios, is a Metroidvania-style game set in a Mexican background as a simple man is turned into a luchador to save el Presidente’s daughter (who he likes) from the evil clutches of Calaca, a man who sold his soul to the devil with a vengeance. Listen here as we chat about the story, game mechanics and characters!

Game Warp Podcast: ‘Batman: The Telltale Series’ Review

Game Warp Podcast’s new episode is here!
We are looking at our March featured game, Batman: The Telltale Series!

This episode, Elwood and I sit down with Youtube Gamer Slaymate, aka Insomnia Knights, to talk about Batman: The Telltale Series. We talk about what we thought about the story arcs that Telltale Games choose and how they made it their own. The conversation lead to the choices that tailored the story and game flow along with the game mechanics which are mostly the quick time events based. We end the conversation with whether we think there will be a sequel and what heroes or villains we’d like to see if it did happen as well as pitch other franchises that Telltale Games should do that could be fun.

Game Warp Podcast: ‘Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture’ Review

The next Game Warp podcast episode is here!

This time, Elwood and I sit down to talk about the independent game by developers The Chinese Room called Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. This is a first person adventure game where you walk around a rural English countryside where everyone has mysteriously disappeared. As you follow a light, it guides you to uncover fragments of memories that piece together the story of what happened. We look at gameplay, visuals and the score. We discuss the story and what we think about the ending. There are some spoilers here but the footage gives you a good idea of the environments and the tone of the game.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for listening!

Game Warp Podcast: Batman: Arkham Origins (2013)

Over at Game Warp, Elwood and I have been getting into the Christmas spirit as we dove into Batman: Arkham Origins which is set on Christmas Eve in Gotham. Batman: Arkham Origins is a 2013 open world action-adventure game and the third installment in the Arkham trilogy. We start with a younger Batman who follows a lead to track down Commission Leob who may be in danger at the Blackgate Penitentiary and learns that Black Mask is behind everything and has put a bounty on his head which eight assassins have gladly accepted. While he could hide away from all of them and stay as Bruce Wayne, Batman just couldn’t let others get caught up in his mess so he goes out to follow the lead to put an end to this.

We would like to apologize for the minor audio issues! Its something we are working hard to remedy.

Podcast: ‘Beyond Good and Evil’ Review

The next Game Warp Podcast is here. we are breaking out from the indie mold for a moment and looking at a Playstation 2  Greatest Hits from 2003 developed by Ubisoft called Beyond Good and Evil. Beyond Good and Evil follows Jade, a photojournalist who is tasked by the underground IRIS network with uncovering the sinister plans of the Alpha Sector and the DomZ, with her humanoid boar uncle Pey’J and agent HH. With the recent update on the long-awaited sequel which will be coming to reality, we take ourselves to Hillys and its world to see if Beyond Good and Evil is as great as everyone else says it is. Or maybe, is it just nostalgia?
