Taking a cue from our favorite British panel shows on TV and radio, we bring you GameSpot GamePlay. Each week, we recap recent news and test our panelists' wits and knowledge, probing their minds to find out just what makes them tick.
Host: Kevin VanOrd
Even though Kevin, sadly, has zero knowledge of The Wire, Homicide: Life on the street was written by the same creator of The Wire. So one is not a "clone" of the other. It's a Demon's Souls/Dark Souls situation instead of a Pac Avoid/Scamperghost.
When I saw the character from Shadow Of Mordor, he immediately reminded me of Raziel from Soul Reaver more than anything else. Especially, in the way you can switch between two plains of existence, the "living world" and the "shadow realm" or what have you.
Just a note: I just found this show is still going on... no updates to be seen in the main page for new shows... or did I miss them all? Visibility!
No new episode this week? :(
This show is one of the reasons I keep coming back to Gamespot. I'm so excited I can find the show without having to Google it now. Keep up the good work!
Xbone fanboy doesn't understand server maintenance and real gaming. No surprise here. Keep on tooting that Xbone horn. Is Micro$oft paying you for it, too? Lawl.
I wish I could watch it live but I work nights :(
I knew the first three tunes but after that you got to the newer stuff (and then Golden Axe) so I was lost. :P Also, Dragon's Dogma had THAT as a title theme? I was speechless...
I've tried playing The Witcher series on multiple occasions and systems, but just can't get past the boring combat. I have no idea what Tom is talking about when he says it's better than Skyrim. To be fair, I mostly used a bow in Skyrim, but still...
Kevin: RPG's aren't necessarily known for having brilliant combat...
Kevin: You've said this before out loud to me !!!!!!!!!!!!! You are F***ing kidding me right ?
LMAO ! KEVIN LOST IT !!! I love the interaction between these two !
Great episode as usual! Good luck to Francis and sorry to see you leaving.
I like the idea of having guests and enjoyed all the guest appearances in the past! On the other hand, I also like this podcast partly (mostly?) thanks to those who regularly appear on it. The current group's personalities seem to play off well with each other and result in fun interactions! Plus it's always entertaining to have people with strong opinions, even if I don't agree with said people sometimes :P
I guess what I want to say is that, I do believe getting a guest (quite like in the past) will make for interesting episodes so I look forward to it! But I also look forward to episodes with familiar faces and would never get bored of that. Either way, thanks for a great podcast!
I can't believe Francis is leaving, I liked her alot. Kevin and Tom arguing is always funny like watching a married couple fight. Always funny and Chris' face when he is thinking is priceless XD
We should assassinate all QTE's from the games industry......
your mission should you choose to accept it is to eliminate a dastardly fiend which has lead to many cheap death's in the gaming industry and caused many broken controllers.....
exterminate with all due haste.....
this message will self destruct in 5 seconds......
candy crush is a direct bejeweled rip off. no need to bother with it. as for elder scrolls, screw that game. 60$ for the game AND 15$ a month, quite the double dip there. they don't deserve press. plus, a majority of beta testers say it's terrible.
Jeeze I've been looking for this all week! Nice to know I didn't actually miss last weeks episode I guess. Looking forward to tuning in!
@kagento it's true. this is a great show to be sure, but ever since the website redesign, it has been somewhat hidden from view. some advertising on the front page would allow it to get more exposure. it isn't even listed under "shows" on the left side of this page, though strangely enough it can be found on the footer.
@Sun-Tzu-GE LOL yeeeees that made me laugh so hard
@AtheistPreacher I hope not to! Been looking forward to my weekly dose!
