Let’s Talk About “Services Overload” with Fwends [Episode 006]

Episode 006: Services Overload.  We’re talking out of our pockets about services hot on the heels of Disney’s announcement of an exclusive streaming platform. When is “just another $10 a month” going to become too much? Let’s talk about it, shall we fwends?

About Us and the Show
Age-old friend Rob and I haven’t recorded much together since the days of NfamousGamers back in 2009. The site is long gone now but our five episodes remain online, as does Rob’s guest spot on an early GameLuv PodShot episode.

That’s not to say we haven’t kept in touch. Across town and across the country we IM and chat pretty regularly but just finally decided to sync up in real-time to record a new (hopefully weekly) show. Based on Rob’s “Let’s Talk About it” videos, the new show will focus on a single topic each episode, frequently about gaming but anything is up for discussion. Right now you can find it on either of our YouTube channels (mine | his) but I’m going to eventually get it up on the podcast circuit so you can subscribe wherever you listen to shows.

Let’s Talk About “The Comeback Games” with Fwends [Episode 005]

Episode 005: The Comeback Games where we discuss the games that launched at full price (no Early Access here) and weren’t so hot but made a turnaround through updates and expansions to become pretty good. Some of the games Rob & I talk about include Diablo 3, No Man’s Sky, Tom Clancy’s The Division, Rainbow Six: Siege, Destiny and of course, the yet-to-make-a-comeback, For Honor.

Let’s Talk About “Day One-itis & the Pre-Order Itch” with Fwends [Ep.004]

Episode 004: Day One-itis & the Pre-Order Itch where Rob & Shawn issue the edict: thou shall not pre-order games or buy on Day One… unless, ya know, you want to. Just do it for you and not because of an upsell or an ad. Well, this didn’t solve anything!

Let’s Talk About “That Three-Letter Word: DLC” with Fwends [Episode 003]

Episode 003: That Three-Letter Word: DLC where we discuss the differences in approaches to DLC (largely between Capcom and Namco) and try to think of ways to “balance the scale” and not be so sleazy to consumers.

Let’s Talk About “Free to Play & Play & Play & Play” with Fwends [Episode 002]

On Episode 2, Rob & Shawn almost finally get the intro right. And then talk about the free-to-play lifestyle, its perils, and how we feel about all that. It’s a real premium episode, one that’ll make you subscribe and follow along while we grind our way to the level cap, err, Episode 3.

Some of the games covered include Crossout, Marvel Heroes 2016/Omega, Spelunker World and Ace Combat Infinity (naturally), and some free-to-play MMOs like ArcheAge, Star Wars: The Old Republic and Allods.
