Podcast Beyond

It's that time of year again: the time of year when we're tired of talking about news and also, there is no news, so let's look back on 2016, ahead to 2017, and of course... Discuss the movie Heavyweights.

This week, join Max "You'll Shoot Your Eye Out" Scoville, Marty "Buzz's Girlfriend, Woof!" Sliva, Brian "Yippee Ki Yay" Altano and, on his last episode for the foreseeable future, Jared "To Me, You Are Perfect" Petty as they discuss a pathetic smattering of gaming news in these pre-holiday doldrums, what they have on their 2016 backlogs, and most importantly: what are the best Playstation games to play in the presence of younger or older relatives, who might not be okay with F-bombs and no-scope headshots?

The boys are back in town... From PSX! Well, Marty "Marvelous Medicine" Sliva, Brian "Enormous Crocodile" Altano, and Andrew "Golden Ticket" Goldfarb got to check out a bunch of new games down in Anaheim, while Max "Big Friendly Giant" Scoville stayed home and watched the Death Stranding trailer on repeat. Marty reviewed The Last Guardian, and we're all very excited to know that Naughty Dog is still making new games, like Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and The Last of Us Part II.

This week, Max "Farfetch'd" Scoville, Marty "Weezing" Sliva, Alanah "Snorlax" Pearce and Brian "Grimer" Altano gather round the ol' Coleman camp stove to reflect upon the long awaited release of Final Fantasy XV, which was announced over a decade ago. What were you doing in 2006? Meanwhile, Watch Dogs 2 might be GOTY material for some of us, and hey, why is it so hard to nail down a GOTY this year anyway? The Game Awards nominees have us very anxious.

Finally, come say hello at PSX this weekend if you see us. It's okay, we're awkward too. Details on Facebook here.

Hey gang!

Titanfall 2 is being received really well, and finally, Bethesda is done sending out early review copies, which is a little frustrating for people in our field.

Then, Max gushes about Battlefield One, which is weird, since he normally hates competitive military shooters. Finally, Brian got a PSVR, and he's in love with it.

Conversely, HBO's Westworld is shaping up to be one of the best shows about video games that isn't actually about video games.

Then, Zach and Goldie take off to make room for Iron Galaxy bigwigs Chelsea Blasko and Dave Lang, as well their newly-hired colleague Adam Boyes, who you might know from his time with Sony and Capcom. They give us a little insight into what it's like working at a larger independent studio, the balance of creativity and business that goes into game publishing, "jankiness", and Adam's really corny Twitter handle.

Welcome to our second annual late-night, slightly-tipsy E3 Beyond! The Fig, the site of last year’s episode, was under construction, so we had to improvise. We recorded this on the last night of the show in Zach’s Airbnb, so pardon the audio quality/background noise/yelling/sounds of drinks being made/slurring.

Greg Miller returns to Beyond to join Max Scoville, Alanah Pearce, Marty Sliva, Steve Butts, Zach Ryan, Miranda Sanchez, Kallie Plagge, and making his Podcast Beyond debut, IGN’s newest associate editor Jonathon Dornbush.

The crew talks about their impressions of God of War, Death Stranding, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Persona 5, Final Fantasy XV, Detroit: Become Human, The Last Guardian, Batman Arkham VR, Insomniac’s Spider-Man game, Days Gone, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, E3’s secret Vita game, pangus (probably), and a whole lot more.

Oh, and HUGE thanks to James Faulkner for producing/editing the episode and making sure that none of us lost our jobs.
