Podcast: Episode 169 – BAFTAs, Apotheon and Assassin’s Creed Rogue

Out cavalcade of guests continues this week, with long time friend of the podcast Peter Willington making an appearance this week. He joins Lewis, Kev and I, to talk about games and movies, and to try and solve a close to impossible quiz.

Before we get to that, however, we of course took a look at the week’s news. As Peter’s day job over at AppSpy is set firmly in the mobile world, he managed to give us some insight into microtransactions when we took a look at Evolution’s DLC pricing, and noted the lack of mobile representation in this year’s BAFTA Game Awards Norminations.

Peter also gave us a quick rundown of what’s going on in mobile gaming at the moment and, in a more console focussed section, told us about Assassin’s Creed Rogue. Then there’s Kev, who’s seen 12 Years A Slave and has decided to work on a new game development challenge focussed around maps. While we may mock him slightly, the concept for his new game does sound interesting.

As for Lewis, he’s been playing Apotheon on PS4, a game that we couldn’t quite decide how to pronounce. Although he had a lot of praise for the game’s visuals, he wasn’t overly impressed by the title overall.

If you want to know about what I’ve been up to, it mostly revolves around buying a PS4. Yes, I’ve finally joined the current gen, on a HDTV no less, so any recommendations would be very welcome.

Finally we have a quiz from Lewis that was just comically difficult. We then wrap things up with your questions, as we always do.

  1. Map game sounds good. Love a good map!

  2. Cannot remember such a podcast start before. Seems like you guys were really showing up in front of new_Peter :P and yes, Kris level of knowing things is disturbing. Seriously, he must be a pain in the ass when it comes to hang out and chat, like while having a beer or something. Like freaking Mr.Google seating next to you :| “No, just fuck it…” – gold xD

    Well, I try to be positive about the DLC, Season Pass things, but this is just fucked up. Evolve is now on my ‘not to buy list’. Done.

    You should definitely play Driveclub. The game graphics are just insane and on top of that the driving is very good. Lot of fun. Recommended by Germanos.

    Yep, the QUIZ turned out to be really funny xD Seriously xD

    OWww, Kev. Thanks. How lovely to hear such things about me playing Destiny ^^ BTW. it was really great to meet you guys. The multiplayer season was great. Even so you guys were rubbish for most of the time. Still great…just kidding friends ^^ Hope to see you again somewhere in the PSN multiplayer world.
