It took awhile, but Strider was brought back to the spotlight thanks to studio Double Helix (Killer Instinct) and oh, did they do a great job at staying true to the original content. A fast-paced download only game that keeps you hooked with non-stop action and level design that we think should be used more often in future platformers. Flailing a sword around at blazing speeds never felt this satisfying. (more…)
First week of April, we we’re expecting a slow week but was able to cook up a good discuss on what happened this week. Microsoft gets a new Xbox head, Amy Hennig joins Visceral Games for a Star Wars game, and a lot more. Miggy plays around with Goat Simulator 2014, Carlos becomes BATMAN, and Will joins the crazy grind in Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls. Have a listen of episode 26 after the bump.
This episode we broke out of our comfort zone by recording this in the morning to have our reviews editor, Joseph Choi, joins us as we talk Oculus Rift/Facebook and Nintendo. Carlos goes crazy mad with Diablo 3′s expansion; Will gives his final thoughts on BioShock Infinite’s last DLC ever; Miggy doesn’t understands Lara Croft’s emotional side, and Joseph gives us our very first impression of a Wii U exclusive – The Wonderful 101.

This week is packed with topics to discuss. Aside from our impressions for the week, Sony revealed their new VR project called Project Morpheus. Ubisoft continues the yearly Assassin’s Creed with Unity. Capcom being itself, disappoints with the new Street Fighter character reveal. And to top that all off – local street dates for specific games were broken recently, should we be concerned? Also, we have Migs from Zeptonium joining the crew for this episode. Press E to listen now! (more…)
We here at TMG have tried a few Dragon War products and for the most part have had good experiences with them. I saw the Dragon War Thor Gaming Mouse and thought that design wise it looked pretty neat, came with a mouse pad, and had a very reasonable price. (more…)
This episode we have only Will and Carlos doing a two-man show for you guys since Miggy was enjoying his trip on the beach. Even with just the two of them, they were able to go past the usual time. Carlos gives his impression of the full version of Titanfall, Will talks about Broken Age, a game from Double Fine, and the latest episode of The Walking Dead Season 2 episode 2. Aside from the usual news, we discuss a specific topic during the second half – The power and effect gaming media can have in the gaming industry. With the NDA now officially release for The Elder Scrolls Online, Carlos gives his two cents about Bethesda’s first MMORPG.
Another week, another episode of The TMG Podcast. Just like always, we have a so much to talk about but what happened this week is a bit depressing. Jack Tretton steps down as CEO of Sony America, Disney layoffs 700 employees in the gaming department, and Amy Hennig steps down as creative director at Naughty Dog. On a lighter note — A new batman game was announced, yay? Will is still at it with his Pokemon adventure, Miggy is playing Beer Pong in his PS3 for some reason, and Carlos now has his final thoughts on the Strider reboot. (more…)
