Game Warp Podcast: E3 Impressions Part 2: Playstation, PC Gaming Show & Nintendo

Part 2 of E3 Impressions are here!

This time, we talk about the last three conferences. Not a lot of people have covered the PC Gaming Show but as I am the independent games fanatic, it felt like one that I had to check out and it was well worth it to see some of the smaller games getting highlighted with a little more details from the developers themselves. In this episode, we talk about the PC Gaming Show, Playstation and we wrap up with the Nintendo Spotlight event.

Before we wrap up the episode, we discuss whether the new upcoming Nintendo Switch games has made us want to pick up the new console and which conference appealed to us the most?

Game Warp: Top 10 E3 2017 Upcoming AAA Games

E3 2017 has ended. The conferences feels like they were so far away because of all the trailers that has been flooding the internet along with the news. Of course, this year, in our second year of operation, we had better planned for it. Soon to realize that, at least for myself, that you don’t exactly plan for this, you just make time and see what happens. However, as we work out our longer E3 impressions discussion, we both go in our own domains of mainstream and indie games and list our top 10 upcoming games that impressed us.

Up first, is our resident retro and Mainstream connoisseur, Elwood with his Top 10. Of course, That Moment In has the write-up if you’d like to read some more on his thoughts. However, this is a nice countdown video. Hope you enjoy!

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.

What’s Up Thursday #4

I’m WAY overdue for the post but I figured I haven’t done What’s Up Wednesday, and its Thursday now. I feel like mid-week is where my slump happens as things slip away from me. Regardless, I guess more to talk about than the last one. I’ve been doing a lot of gaming so less of everything else. However, gaming is a world of discovery and while they frequent Twitch more, a shoutout to SplatPanda who has taken up a lot of my time as I watch their fun streams on games that I doubt I could play for many reasons. However, they are a great companion to writing. Not all is lost πŸ˜‰

Anyways, moving along with whats been going on behind the scenes or in the works.

Binging

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 3

unbreakable kimmy schmidt

I’m a huge fan of the show and I always binge it when it releases during the first two weeks. I can’t say I qualify as binging right now but I am just wrapping up everything else so that I can watch it without worrying about anything and just having fun. Plus, I have a few TV binge posts in the works that I would like to wrap up before starting (or finishing) something new.

Reading

After reading some books sent to me for reviews, which I still have at least two, I am back to clearing up some overdue Kindle reading from books bought back in 2014/2015.

Right now its Talespins which I just started a few pages. It seems fun to read. Probably going to take some time to sit down and read it in a few days. Same issue with book reviews as for TV binges is that I never try to have too much backlog and I believe there’s still one book that needs to be reviewed to be up to date. Its a new strategy on my part to try and minimize any backlog because what becomes backlog usually stays there. A good example are books that I started this year that are just sitting in my Currently Reading on Goodreads and I just haven’t been in the mood to go back to them.

PLAYING!!!

Currently in recording phase

Trying to complete an expedition

Story mode with my husband

Achievements Run

Told you that I’m gaming a lot, right? Let’s break it down πŸ˜‰

Little Nightmares was our featured game of May and also a strong contender in my game of the year. There’s some super great news about new DLC material coming out in the next few months. I love the game so much that I went back to do an achievement run, which I’m currently still doing. The goal is to unlock the secret achievements along with breaking some stuff and hugging some things. It won’t mean anything unless you’ve played it. If you haven’t watched out episode, you can check it out HERE.

Rise of Balloons however is a game that we had a fantastic chat with the devs last year when this game was first released on mobile. I have already completed and reviewed it last year but the devs told me recently when they told me about the PC release that they added new contents and expanded the game. So I’m a few levels in and its still lots of fun and I have seen some new levels and some more details. We’ll have a review discussion mini episode over on Game Warp soon.

Just to make sure that I’m covering all the genres at the same time, we recently went on fun expeditions on Renowned Explorers. While this isn’t my usual go-to game because it requires my brain too much as a turn-based strategy game. However, once I start this up, it usually pulls on my determination to win. Although I did just decide in yesterday’s session to change my team and start over because they just weren’t strong enough as a group to beat that battle and I knew that even if I swapped the strategy, it wouldn’t have made a difference.

Finally, I’ve been having a crazy desire to play fighting games which is super weird, because I’m horrible at them. Apparently, I’m not all that bad and since I recently picked up Mortal Kombat XL on discount, my husband and I are working through the story mode. Its incredibly brutal but man, its a nice change in pace.

On top of that, I’ve been tracking and streaming on release date the Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, which just had the episode 2 release.
Maybe you’d like to watch it πŸ™‚

That’s it for this What’s Up segment!
Don’t you sometimes wish that you could be split yourself up and be at different places at the same time? Haha!

What have you been up to?

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 hisΒ 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: Interview with ‘Super Walrus Games’

Welcome to the next episode of Game Warp Podcast!

This episode, Elwood and I sit down to chat with Paul Harrington from Super Walrus Games. Their upcoming game, Kaiju Big Battel:Fighto Fantasy was recently greenlit on Steam. It fuses Kaiju Big Battel into a Final Fantasy style and setting making it quite unique in its own way hoping to welcome newcomers to the game while appealing to the fans of these live monster wrestling performances. For those who don’t know Kaiju Big Battel, which I didn’t until days before the recording of this episode, it is quite the performance with some more than unique characters fighting against each other. Go on Youtube and you’ll be enlightened! However, how is it to turn it into a game and what does this all mean? How has the idea evolved? Super Walrus Games has quite the task on their hands. Check out our chat to learn about the game development process so far of Kaiju Big Battel: Fighto Fantasy.
