Controllers & Keyboards Episode 28 is here! As always, contains explicit language. 

It’s another week without Harlee, poor bugger got sick with a severe case of blah blah, so it’s just Max and Morgan this week! Better than The Harlee Grey Show.

Lots of anger in this one, due to missing our alledged heart of the show. Max and Morgan vent. A lot. About broken launch titles (Batman: Arkham Knight), expensive DLC (Destiny, Batman: Arkham Knight) and Triple A PC ports rarely working on Week One (Batman: Arkham Knight). We also get the chance to have an amiibo mini-sode, which we may continue to do periodically if you like! Let us know in the comments below.

There is some cheery parts though! Such as Bethesda allowing a superfan to purchase the game using bottle caps, the in-game currency in Fallout, as well as Morgan fanboying over Fire Emblem: Fates. Spoiler warning, he doesn’t intend to stop.

Because you love us, make sure to like/follow/subscribe our Twitter, Facebook, PodbeaniTunes page and our brand-new YouTube channel, and also follow each of us individually to keep up to date with what we are doing. We also intend to do a Spoilercast for the latest Batman title, so keep an eye out for it!

See you next Tuesday!

Whether you’re a squid or a kid, you’ll be playing on a brand new ranked game mode for Wii U shooter Splatoon tomorrow. The news was announced via the Squid Research Lab.

‘Tower Control’ is a brand new game mode releasing July 1st at 7PM PT. The mode is similar to Team Fortress 2’s ‘Payload’ game mode. In Tower Control, teams fight over a small tower in the centre of the map, if you’re team controls the tower, it will move towards your opponents base. Once the tower reaches either base, the game is over.

Nintendo of Japan have released a gameplay trailer showcasing Tower Control, so you know what to expect tomorrow. You can check it out below.

No extra gamerscore for you in Rare Replay.

Player’s may be either relieved or distressed that the 10,000 gamerscore spanning all the titles in Rare Replay will include achievements previously unlocked on Xbox 360, according to an interview between Rare Gamer and Rare’s Jason Thomas. That means if you played Banjo Kazooie on Xbox 360, the achievements unlocked will carry over to those in Rare Replay. This means players will not be able to pad out their gamerscore with double the fun.

On the upside of things, players will see some benefits to having already unlocked various achievements. There is plenty of bonus content beyond the core games included in Rare Replay and having achievements already unlocked will give players a head start with this content. Another detail to note, game saves will carry over from Xbox 360 to Xbox One if players saved through the power of The Cloud, according to the interview

Rare Replay includes 30 different titles, each of which will have their own achievements. Therefor, even if you beat Banjo Kazooie to 100% completion, there are many other titles to earn some extra gamerscore. 

Rare Replay releases on August 4, 2015 as an Xbox One exclusive and includes 30 games for only $29.99. That tallies up to one dollar per game.

Twitch streamer, The Mexican Runner, dominates Battletoads using only his right hand.

Chances are if you have ever played Battletoads, you most likely didn’t beat it. The game is notorious for its punishing difficulty. Even the most skilled players of past generations found their last stop in the Turbo Tunnel. However, The Mexican Runner aka TMR, makes us all look like babies when he rushes through Battletoads in under 40 minutes, using only his right hand

TMR is no stranger to beating Battletoads quickly. His personal best for speedrunning the game is 13:33, just shy of the 13:17 world record. TMR also has his share of other records. He holds the world record for games like Contra on the NES and The Lion King on SNES. 

If you are interested in older games being beaten, specifically NES games, TMR is currently in the middle of NESmania, the quest to beat every NES game. He has currently toppled 242 out of 709 NES games. 

Battletoads is soon to reappear on the Xbox One as part of the Rare Replay that is coming out in early August. Rare Replay will feature 30 games, including Battletoads and Battletoads Arcade as well as many other classics, some for the first time ever on an Xbox console. 

Watch Battletoads get destroyed with one hand by clicking here.

This game is hard enough using two hands.

The incredibly popular Shovel Knight will finally be getting a physical release across various platforms, including the Xbox One, PS4, Wii U, and 3DS on October 13 in North America and Europe. It will cost $19.99, and is to include all content that is already available right now, such as:

  • Specter Knight’s Campaign
  • King Knight’s Campaign
  • Battle Mode
  • Body Swap Mode

Since its initial release in June 2014, Shovel Knight has sold more than 700,000 copies, winning various Game of the Year awards along the way, among others. The game very much resembles NES-inspired graphics, gameplay and music, making for a nostalgic, yet refreshing experience.

A look at all four versions of the game, sporting some awesome artwork.

Developer at Yacht Games, David D’Angelo, also mentions in the blog post that Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows will be released before the physical release of Shovel Knight, as follows:

The wait for Plague of Shadows is almost over! It will definitely hit BEFORE the boxed version. We’re in the home stretch and are polishing every detail, pixel, and potion right now.

Nice to know the game is doing so well and we’ll be treated to a new Shovel Knight in the not too distant future. Kudos, Yacht Games.

Suicide Squad director David Ayer hired an on-set therapist to keep the actors from going over the edge.

In an interview with Adam Beach, who will be playing Slipknot in the upcoming DC Comics film Suicide Squad, it was revealed that David Ayer hired a sort of therapist to keep the cast from becoming too villainous themselves.

“David Ayer is about realism,” Adam Beach told E! News. “So if your character is tormented, he wants you to torment yourself. He wants the real thing.”

Sounds superfluous? Well, you might want to rethink that. Jared Leto will be portraying the legendary character of The Joker, and he is definitely willing to go above and beyond the norm to further immerse himself into his role.

jared-leto-joker-632x400

Leto has previously sent letters, bullets and even dead animals to his colleagues to further refine his Joker persona, a character that already took its tole in a variety of different actors (more on that below). To keep him (and the remaining Suicide Squad cast) from losing it, Ayer decided to get a therapist on set to keep the madness where it belongs: on the set. 

Jack Nicholson, who played The Joker in 1989’s Batman, had warned Heath Ledger before taking on the role of the Clown Prince of Crime in 2008’s The Dark Knight, saying it was a mentally exhausting and maddening experience. Reports confirmed that Ledger died after an accidental overdose on prescription drugs. According to his father, he went a bit too deep into his role as the Joker, which likely caused mental disturbances that led to the taking the prescription drugs. 

What do you think? Do some actors simply take it too far, or is complete immersion a must these days? Let us know in the comment section below.

Spider-Man will get a new look in the All-New, All-Different Marvel reboot.

On the cover of Amazing Spider-Man #1, we get a first full-body look at Peter Parker’s new Spider-Man costume. While similar to the original look we all know and love, there are some changes that make it stand out. For example, his web, the webbing under his arms and the emblem on his chest are surrounded with a neon-ish green glow. 

The tagline reads “Your friendly neighborhood just got bigger”. Check out the full cover below.

However, on the cover of Uncanny Avengers #1, we see an entirely different Spider-Man suit, so it’s perfectly possible that both Peter Parker and Miles Morales will simultaneously take on the alter ego of Spider-Man whilst fighting crime in different cities to cover more ground.

According to IGN, Warner Bros. Games Montreal is looking to recruit employees to work on a new project for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

The job listings on the studio’s website specify that the game will be an open-world action game that is said to be developed using the Unreal Engine 4, since experience with the Unreal Engine 3 engine is preferred.

While it’s still a bit early to dub it Batman: Arkham Origins 2, it seems likely that WB Games Montreal is working on a new Batman: Arkham title could be in its early stages. Not only did the studio develop 2013’s Batman: Arkham Origins, but they’re also developing some downloadable content for Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Knight.
