Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 151 - The One Free Podcast

The Gamecentral Podcast returns with another episode worth of gaming talk, life talk, and well, talk for the sake of talk. Blizzard's run of terrible PR continues; Nintendo are selling Switches faster than one of their most beloved consoles; and Final Fantasy VII's non-PS4 release date gets a swift kick in the balls. And then, after the excitement of the News we've also got some music for you before we get to our feature, which is... Half Life 2! A game which is renowned the world over, but which Dave has never played! Will the game meet the hype, or flounder under the pressure? Find out in this week's feature! Also, don't be alarmed at the unusual static that pops up at the start of the Half Life 2 section, it goes away before too long. Though now I think about it, something about it seemed... Oddly familiar... (Right-click the file and select "Save as" to download it, or left-click to listen in your browser)

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 150 - How The Sausage Gets Made

We did it! We reached 150 episodes! It took us longer than we expected to get here but the journey's not even close to over, so thank you for joining us, no matter which leg of the journey you hopped on. This episode we cover what may be the most dry news week in recent memory, to the best of our ability; before giving away the trade secrets of the podcasting game. We'll tell you what programs and equipment we use to create the podcast itself, and the various other necessary expenditures of time and effort that go into creating our humble little corner of the video game podcasting world. If you've ever listened to even 1 second of a single episode of the podcast, then we owe you an enormous thank you. Thank you! And here's to 150 more!

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 148 - Sexy Cat Taylor Swift

Two podcasts in two weeks?! So far so good! On this weeks episode we're attempting (and failing) to slim things down, so we've got 3 news stories; a little feature about movies; and 1 game that we've been playing each. We even find time to squeeze in some video game music! In News we're talking about the PS5 logo, the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Direct, and the Final Fantasy VII Remake getting delayed. In our Feature we discuss the concept of day-one patches for movies, just like the new Cats movie has done. And finally in What Have We Been Playing we talk about Borderlands 3's DLC and MediEvil. 2020 is off to an encouraging start! (...If you ignore the upcoming World War and literal countries on fire) (Right-click the file and select "Save as" to download it, or left-click to listen in your browser)

Gamecentral Podcast: Episode 147 - Best of the Decade

Welcome to a new year, a new decade, and a new episode of the Gamecentral Podcast! On this episode we're looking back at the year that was 2019, the decade that was the 2010s, and the fertile ground that is 2020. We start off by going over the games that made an impression on us over the past 12 months, whether a positive one or a negative one; then we're discussing the decade as a whole and hand picking a batch of games that we consider some of the best of all time, all of which were released between 2010 and 2020; before finally looking towards the far flung future of the year two thousand and twenty. Will we get a quality crop of games this year? And what are we looking forward to in the months to come? The only way to know is to listen to episode 147 of the Gamecentral Podcast!
