Ep. 89 Why Outriders isn't coming to Xbox Game Pass for PC Day One

While Xbox, Square Enix, and People Can Fly have announced that Outriders, the upcoming looter shooter will be available to play via Xbox Game Pass day one - but only for the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series. This has obviously frustrated a number of PC gamers, as Xbox Game Pass for PC and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate also provide acess to a vast number of PC games. So why is this happening? Why is Outriders only heading to Xbox Game Pass for consoles and not the PC? We have a good idea why and we break it down in this episode. #outriders #peoplecanfly #xboxgamepass

57: Until You Fall Fantasy Sword Fighting VR Game is amazing - PAX East 2020 Interview

While at PAX East 2020, in the Indie Megabooth no less, I encountered a fantasy sword fighting game that takes place solely in VR. That game being Until You Fall, which features fantastic graphics, interesting gameplay and I simply couldn't pass it by. Thankfully, the fine folks who were showing off the game. Jill Sciulli and Dave Bennett Schell,  were more than happy to let me try the game for myself. While doing so, I found myself being engaged with how well put together the game is. Not to mention that this is still in development and is available as an early access title. Afterward, Dave took some time to speak to me regarding Until You Fall and Schell Games' PAX East 2020 experience, the future of VR headsets and more.Check out more of our PAX East 2020 coverage ➜ https://www.theouterhaven.net/news/gaming/pax-east-2020-coverage/Read our gaming content ➜ https://www.theouterhaven.net#paxeast #vr #virtualreality #untilyofufall #videogames

We’re brutally honest and no topic is safe from us, no matter what it is. Ah, this past week was a glorious time for gaming news. Sony hosted its final State of Play of the year, and we finally got an official confirmation for Resident Evil 3. While The Game Awards Show provided tons of new trailers, game announcements and Microsoft's Xbox Series X. There's a lot to unpack here, so we've tried us best. But as always, gaming talk always tends to take us to other places, but we're sure you'll enjoy the show. Thanks for listening.

This week we touch on the delay of DOOM Eternal and if releasing among some of the biggest games of 2020 is going to hurt sales of the game.

34: I rather be playing Anthem (Ep. 34)

This week we're taking a look at a recent news article that talks Ninja's arrival on Mixer and the impact he's had. Red Dead Redemption 2 was finally announced as a PC title and we're all excited to either play it again or for the first time. While the WGA has decided that video game stories aren't really important to them for some reason. PlayStation's renewed interest in PlayStation Now has us wondering what else is in store, while Diego gives us the rundown on the state of Ghost Recon: Breakpoint. It's not very good if you're wondering. Closing it out, we discuss Destiny 2: Shadowkeep and how it's captivated us and why we can't put the game down. This and much more on this week's episode. Mixer and Ninja talk - 1:10Red Dead Redemption 2 announcement - 19:30WGA story - 29:41PlayStation Now renewed interest - 49:37Ghost Recon: Breakpoint mini-review - 59:58Destiny 2 Shadowkeep discussion - 1:1106Subscribe to us on:Audioboom (https://audioboom.com/channel/spectatormode) | Overcast (https://overcast.fm/itunes1454432466/spectator-mode-podcast) | Spotify (https://open.spotify.com/show/3hMI4hk4B8tQIsbI6QD6YN) | Stitcher (https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/the-outerhaven-productions/spectator-mode-podcast?refid=stpr) | iTunes (https://apple.co/2GY6ddQ) | Google Play (https://play.google.com/music/listen#/ps/I634ijd7ebd4d3e2yevouqkmbmi) | YouTube (https://bit.ly/2TvlSXK)Follow the Spectator Mode Podcast crew on Twitter:Spectator Mode Podcast- https://twitter.com/spectator_mode  (https://twitter.com/spectator_mode)Keith Mitchell – https://twitter.com/Shadowhaxor  (https://twitter.com/Shadowhaxor)Karl Smart – https://twitter.com/Themasething  (https://twitter.com/Themasething)Diego Perez – https://twitter.com/CircleSquareDPRob Dolen - https://twitter.com/actuallybobdole

This week's episode is a little more laid back than usual considering it's only Diego and Rob on the panel this time. That doesn't mean there's any less content though! Rob talks a bit about Minecraft and how the game seems to be becoming popular again, and then both Rob and Diego share some more thoughts about the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Beta, specifically the new 32 vs 32 Ground War Mode. Not only that, but Diego takes some time to talk about Untitled Goose Game, Borderlands 3, and The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III, which got a demo on the PlayStation Store last week.Later in the show, the two discuss the upcoming State of Play and what they'd like to see from it. Also, the August NPD report came in, and the guys take a look at what games sold well and others that didn't do too hot. Finally, a court ruling in France might mean big changes for the way we buy digital games, and Diego and Rob ponder as to what this could mean for Steam, other platforms, and the industry as a whole.All that and more in this episode of the Spectator Mode Podcast!Subscribe to us on:Audioboom (https://audioboom.com/channel/spectatormode) | Overcast (https://overcast.fm/itunes1454432466/spectator-mode-podcast) | Spotify (https://open.spotify.com/show/3hMI4hk4B8tQIsbI6QD6YN) | Stitcher (https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/the-outerhaven-productions/spectator-mode-podcast?refid=stpr) | iTunes (https://apple.co/2GY6ddQ) | Google Play (https://play.google.com/music/listen#/ps/I634ijd7ebd4d3e2yevouqkmbmi) | YouTube (https://bit.ly/2TvlSXK)Follow the Spectator Mode Podcast crew on Twitter:Spectator Mode Podcast- https://twitter.com/spectator_mode  (https://twitter.com/spectator_mode)Keith Mitchell – https://twitter.com/Shadowhaxor  (https://twitter.com/Shadowhaxor)Karl Smart – https://twitter.com/Themasething  (https://twitter.com/Themasething)Diego Perez – https://twitter.com/CircleSquareDPRob Dolen - https://twitter.com/actuallybobdole#callofdutymodernwarfare #goosegame #borderlands3 #legendofheroescoldsteel3 #NPD #stateofplay #xbox #minecraft

Hope you got that popcorn ready!Just like clockwork, we start off with games we've played this past week, which is always interesting. Then we moved on to Gamescom 2019 and game announcements we were looking forward to and disappoints on games that didn't surface. That includes Death Stranding, Need for Speed Heat and the lack of a new Resident Evil game. We eventually segway into why we felt Gamescom 2019 was lacking and why companies aren't really excited to jump into new IPs. Moving on to more depressing news, we touch on the layoffs that affected the GameInformer magazine and the decline of Gamestop. We also weigh in on if Battlefield V and is its days numbered now that Call of Duty Modern Warfare (2019) is almost here.That and more in this episode of Spectator Mode Podcast.Thanks for listening.

27: Episode 27 - So many games so little time

This week there's just two of us holding down the show, but it's all good as you have two our the gamiest members. That said, we're all about not only the most recent games we've been playing but also the games we're looking forward to this Fall 2019. We also took some time to talk about the update to No Man's Sky and Remnant: From the Ashes (It's so damned good!). Changing gears, we reflect on the number of games that are releasing fairly soon that have received little to no marketing. We're fearful of them and their chances of selling. Of course, where's there's some good talk, there's also some bad stuff that follows. We're referring to the departure of Bioware's Anthem lead producer, the swatting of the recent swapping of Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf. As well as the bomb threat of Bandai Namco US and the death threats toward Square Enix. It's been bizarre as of late.You know what to do. Sit back or don't, but be sure to enjoy the week's show.Thanks for listening.

26: Episode 26 - Blame Video Games For Everything

Folks, we have a bit of a serious show this week. As you know, video games are yet again under attack thanks to the government of the US of A nothing being able to actually anything for gun control. So once again, they just blame video games because that's the answer. Keith gets a bit emotional over this mess, he's quite upset over this.But it's not all serious, as we talk about what games we've played this past week. Resident Evil is on our minds and we discuss which new entry in the series we'll see first. Moving on to Gamescom, which is right around the corner and we wanna see some new games. But what we'll see and what are we excited for? Lastly, we move on to the ESA dropping the ball again, as it's discovered that they leaked not just E3 2019 press and journalist info. Nope, they also leaked several other lists as well. We saved the serious chat surrounding Walmart removing game adverts and even games from their stores and how the USA needs to stop blaming video games for every major violent act carried out.Yep, this one is a bangerThanks for listening.

23: Episode 23 - EA and G2A are the bad guys this week

For some reason, EA's EVP Matt Bilbey has a hard time understanding why the gaming community perceives them as the bad guy. Meanwhile, G2A employees have been pitching an article to various gaming websites and asking them to not say it was from G2A is a smart thing to do. Thankfully, there's some good on today's show as Keith finds out about Assassin's Creed Odyssey and is now a fan.Thanks for listening.

22: Episode 22 - Epic Games and the future of Crowdfunded games

With Epic Games being attached to several high profile crowdfunded games (Phoenix Point, Outer Wilds, Shenmue 3), what does this mean for future crowdfunded titles? Will people shy away from them, will developers highlight what game store the keys will be from? Will Epic Games continue to interfere with games that were already backed?That's what today's episode begs to ask.Thanks for listening.

18: Episode 18 - A Loot Box by Any Other Name - 6.21.2019

Welcome to another episode of the Spectator Podcast, the Outerhaven's weekly podcast where we talk the latest news, topics and everything else that's video games.Recently, EA has been making the rounds and trying to tell people that loot boxes aren't really a bad thing. Nah, instead they're perfectly fine and are surprise mechanics that gamers everywhere love. Well, we don't believe the hype and we're not too thrilled about EA's rather crappy tactics. Speaking of crappy tactics, we jump into what would happen if gaming would be taking over by streaming. We don't mean Twitch streaming, but all your games being played via the all-mighty cloud. We're not completely convinced we're ready for that. Oh, and Keith recaps how much money he's spent via Kickstarter and gets a bit sadder on the inside.Lastly, this show is a bit PG-13, as there are a few swears it in. We're all grown adults here, nothing you haven't heard before.That and more in Spectator Mode Episode 18.Thanks for listening.

17: Spectator Mode Podcast Episode 17 -Shenmue 3 The Epic Games Store and You

During E3 2019, Deep Silver and Epic Games announced that Shenmue 3 was no longer coming to Steam. Which really set a really bad tone and upset countless PC gamers who had requested a Steam key prior to this announcement. As a fellow PC gamer and a backer of the game, I felt betrayed and frustrated.

However, with a new challenger, Pantheon (https://www.theouterhaven.net/2018/03/pantheon-wow-killer/) , being worked on. Could this lore us back to the MMO scene? Thanks for listening.
