This episode of Controllers & keyboards was recorded on 08/02/15 and contains explicit content, and a possible trap card. 

You can listen to this weeks episode right here.

Another week has gone by and that means max and myself gather around our microphones and try to fill an hour with things we know nothing about. What I meant to say was this is a professional podcast and we discuss many pressing matters in the gaming world.

So it seems the gaming gods listened to my pleas last week regarding a new Yu-Gi-Oh! video game, you can imagine my shock when 3 days latter Legacy of the Duelist was released. I’ve been playing this game non-stop, it has everything that I asked for and the $30 price tag may seem high for a card game but you really do get a nice amount of content. Max states that if you’d like he’ll purchase the game and he and I will have a duel over on our YouTube channel, so please tell us you want to see that so I can send him to the Shadow Realm. 

Now when we recorded the episode we were a few days out from Gamescom which is happening right now, we discuss in light detail on what we’d like to see and how the official website sucks. We’ll be going through all of the announcements and hype on the next episode. 

Sony have come up with a really neat feature called “vote to play” where you, the players, can vote for what games you get on PlayStation+. I really like this feature and hope to see it on Xbox Live sooner rather than later. 

I’ll be honest I don’t remember why but we dig pretty deep in what game testers do and the process in reviewing a video game. So if any of that interests you I hope you enjoy that segment.

It occurred to us that we’ve recently passed 2000 listens over on Podbean, we thought that was pretty cool and want to thank you guys by giving away some games!  

Apotheon – Steam

Robot roller derby disco dodgeball – Steam

Paper Bound – PS4 (North American code)

Tower of Guns  – PS4 (North American code)

Nom Nom Galaxy  – PS4 (North American code)

Farming Simulator – PS4, Xbox One 

Catlateral Damage – Steam

Speedrunners – Steam

Funk of Titans – Steam

If you’d like to get hold of one or more of these games go ahead and listen to the episode to find out more (didn’t think i’d just tell you did you?)

So that about wraps up this weeks episode, be sure to like our Facebook, follow our Twitter and Subscribe to our channel just because you can and we know you will. I’m keen to continue making videos for you guys and I want to know what you’d like to see, do you enjoy Max and myself going 1v1, some gameplays? let me know in the comments below.

Harlee Grey: @Harlee_Grey

Maxime Chiasson: @Max_Chiasson

(The Desceased) Morgan Hench: @TheRetroGoat

Love is a strong word but we like you guys a lot.

We’ve already seen so much of Halo 5’s multiplayer already, with plenty of footage from the multiplayer beta last year as well as videos from E3. However, during Gamescom, 343 Industries gave us even more to salivate over with this new multiplayer trailer

The trailer features all that we know so far of Halo 5’s multiplayer, but with a few surprises in there too. This game is certainly attempting a great feat: to evolve Halo’s gameplay in unique ways, to cater to new fans and old pros alike, and to open the door for Halo’s reign on Xbox once again. It’s a tough act, but we’ll see if 343 Industries has the right stuff.

At E3 2015, we got our first look at Locke’s campaign gameplay and the new Warzone multiplayer mode. The campaign is ambitious, featuring 4 player co-op for both sides of the campaign, giving you smart A.I. companions when real players aren’t there. 343 themselves commented on the challenge with making this new Halo game.

What do you think of this multiplayer trailer? Has Halo evolved in the right way? Let us know in the comments.

Halo 5: Guardians is out for Xbox One on October 27 2015.

We Don’t Need No New Releases

 

I love gaming in the summer, its my favourite time of year in the industry. Big time new releases are still a blast. The hype, anticipation, and even the uncertainty, all giving us that warm and exciting feeling we all want to replicate when we unwrapped our favourite SNES or Genesis game (I grew up in the gaming wild west days). Sometimes we get that and it’s just fantastic. For me, I love finding those hidden gems from months or years back, and catching up on the inevitable backlog from Steam sales.

I think it all started back in the day when me and my younger brother would spend our Saturday mornings nose length from the TV screen making our way through the Donkey Kong series or finally trying to concur Super Double Dragon. It is a little different as a kid, you’re at the mercy of your parents, family, and gift giving with the games you own, but these are still my fondest gaming memories. As I’ve gotten older I’ve been all aboard the Hype Train many times, Halo 2, the Uncharted series, and most recently the Arkham games. I was a pretty late adopter of the Sony consoles so I missed out on the Uncharted 1 & 2 releases. To get myself prepped and ready for the 3rd installment, I spent the summer previous playing through the first 2. I loved every minute of it. That was one of these first times I came to the revelation that summer is my new favourite time for gaming. One of the main reasons is time, I just don’t have the time to play all the newest releases, I’d love to but life gets in the way.

I am dying to get into Arkham Knight, but I just haven’t had the time. I’ve played numerous games since it was available, and I honestly haven’t felt like I’ve missed a beat, if anything I’ve had a better time experiencing games I hadn’t cracked open yet. This has been my approach the last few years between (roughly) May and October, focus on the past and take the time to play something I didn’t have time to a couple years ago.

Some of my favourite games of all time have been played in this “summer lull.” Fez, Mark of the Ninja, The Wolf Among Us, Thomas Was Alone, and Bastion are all ones that first come to mind. I sift through my Steam library or PS Plus list, boot them up, and love almost all of them. Maybe it’s just the games I’ve decided to play that have created this sense of joy in my summer gaming, if I played the latest Arkham game would I be having just as much fun? Maybe, but I also like jumping from game to game sometimes. This summer for example, I’ve gotten deeper into Heroes of the Storm, but along the way started playing Ori and the Blind Forest, Journey, and (trying to become the motorized Pele) Rocket League.

Summer gaming at its best: Luigi's Mansion on 3DS

Summer gaming at its best: Luigi’s Mansion on 3DS

Growing up in the North East coast of North America it’s not exactly the warmest or friendliest weather all year round, passing on the rare warm weather would be a great tragedy, so if gaming is in the cards why not take it with you. Right now I’m discovering one of the best 3DS games I’ve ever played, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. I’ve even gotten around to finally reading Ready Player One, also a great way to get outside while also being a huge geek while I’m at it! I actually want to thank the gaming developers out there for giving the industry some much needed down time like the summer. Without it, I don’t know if I’d have experienced a lot of my favourite games. Sure, you’ll hit some duds, or something you’ve heard is fantastic but just didn’t connect with you. For me it was Monaco, Witcher 2, and Spelunky (I know, for shame!).

Maybe it’s not for everyone, but I love heading back into my own personal collections to replay a title I love, or boot one up for the first time. I love gaming, new or old, taking the time to experience many of these unique and innovative games has not only given me more appreciation for what the industry really is, but made me fall in love with video games even more.

Pretty much everybody who’s ever touched Rockstar’s mega-IP has drooled over the idea of every GTA title combined into one big game.

Now, thanks to this reddit user, we can see what the map for such a game would look like. (Be sure to click the image for a better view)

Okay, so you knew it was going to be big but blooming hell, look at it.

Okay, so you knew it was going to be big but blooming hell, look at it.

Incase you’re struggling to sense the scale, GTA V’s map of Los Santos is the area in the bottom left corner – taking up less than a quarter of the map in its entirity – and we all know how easy it was to get lost in the mountains or desert in that game.

The San Fierro region is sitting up at the top left while Liberty City and Vice City are top right and bottom right respectively. 

Bridges, deserts, mountains and water – God help you if you lose your boat – link up the whole map, and most of it looks as if it was made to slot together.

Any sort of game set here would need a mammoth story and would include hundreds of hours of gameplay. Of course, we won’t be seeing anything of this scale for a long, long while but one day, internet. One day.

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners are going to be delighted to learn that Batman: Arkham Knight is getting a new photo mode. This mode will enable you to take pictures of The Dark Knight while he’s in action.

This will be a menu based option and it will take still freeze-frame images. The update will occur in August and will be a download file size of 4.3 GB.

However, I have some bad news for PC users. This update for PC is currently unknown, and with all the issues that the PC version is facing, it likely won’t be anytime soon. 

This update will include the next upcoming Batgirl DLC which was made by Batman: Arkham Origins Developer WB Games Montreal. It will also include additional Batman skins and The Batmobile from the 1989 Tim Burton’s Batman Film.
