Podcast Beyond (general)

This week, Brian "Alvin" Altano, Max "Simon" Scoville and Andrew "Theodore" Goldfarb sit down to discuss their time playing Watch Dogs 2, Persona 5 (in Japanese) and just when we're discussing the novel concept of a Firewatch movie, we're interrupted by the delivery of a brand new piece of Playstation-branded gaming hardware. I wonder what it could be!

This week, everyone's on vacation or MIA, so the show has been taken over by LADIES. That's right, this week, it's Alanah "Wild America" Pearce, Kallie "Man of the House" Plagge, Miranda "Tom & Huck" Sanchez, and a mysterious newcomer to the show who is totally not just Max "Home Improvement" Scoville wearing a wig.

Anyway, this week we discuss the Titanfall 2 early tech alpha demo thing, the leaked Playstation Slim (Neo?) photos, the Playstation Plus price increase, Alanah's review of Valley, Metal Gear Survive, and how much we want a Sex & The City game. Don't worry, those smelly boys will be back next week.

This week, everybody's off at Gamescom, so Max "Howlin' Mad" Scoville, Marty "Full Moon Fever" Sliva, and Alanah "Teen Wolf" Pearce talk about what they've been playing, like indie ballerina non-game Bound, and of course No Man's Sky. Meanwhile, Final Fantasy XV's been delayed, but thankfully the movie hasn't, and Marty says it's pretty good.

This week's Beyond is a little unusual, as Max "Roof-Rack" Scoville, Brian "The Glovebox" Altano, Andrew "Center Console" Goldfarb and Zach "Cool Skull-Shaped Gearshift Knob" Ryan talk about their mixed, but mostly positive feelings toward the much-anticipated No Man's Sky.

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.

This week, Max "Earth" Scoville, Alanah "Fire" Pearce, Jared "Wind" Petty, and Marty "Water" Sliva gather together to chat about all sorts of nonsense, including No Man's Sky's leak, impressions of Telltale's Batman, the beauty of Abzu, Inside coming to PS4, and animals in sunglasses.

Beyond!
