Game Bytes :: October 17, 2018 :: Bots in the Slots

LeGrande and Jeremy bring a bounteous autumn harvest of video game impressions to satisfy your hunger for games for the middle of the week! We lead in by revisiting our very positive impressions of Arena of Valor and hit the brakes on unequivocal praise with a few questions and concerns about the popular MOBA. Jeremy got a deal on digital adaptation of Sentinels of the Multiverse, and details the rules of the complex solitaire/multiplayer hero battler. LeGrande has been playing the...


Game Bytes :: October 14, 2018 :: Blacksite Up Front, Sengoku in the Back

Kick your week off with a mullet-like combination of serious video game business and doofy video game hijinx! We update you on the fix to a major Windows bug, and warn you about a major PS4 bug. Microsoft launches an Xbox cloud gaming service, Star Citizen looks pretty good but will never come out. Steam Link updates, Fortnite updates, Destiny 2 gets bundled, and... Gooigi. We discuss new releases and freebies, and we talk about open world promises that reeled us in! Intro: "Psychedelic" -...


Game Bytes :: October 10, 2018 :: MalakaMalaka

We've only played two games this week, but they're both good ones. Dale, Jeremy, and LeGrande have all spent a bunch of time in our newest MOBA addiction, Arena of Valor. We've played on Switch and on mobile, and we compare and contrast the different versions and discuss what makes AoV different from others in the genre. Then, Jeremy talks about his experience on Google's "Project Stream" and his time playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey on the worst available laptop in his house... and it's...


Game Bytes :: October 7, 2018 :: I'm Always Space Angry

Jeremy, Dale, and LeGrande are back for the top-of-the-week episode to keep you informed and in the know about the goings-on in video games. We get good news about Clementine, a bunch of people are playing Marvel's Spider-Man, the rumor mill is grinding about games, a high-level departure at Blizzard, and a live-action video game movie adaptation is confirmed. Plus, new releases and freebies, and we make OUR picks for game-to-movie conversions. Intro: "Super Fighting Robot (Megaman)" - The...


Game Bytes :: October 3, 2018 :: SUPER Proportioned

Dale, LeGrande, and Jeremy have done the heavy lifting for you: we played the video games this week so you don't have to! Jeremy gives his breakdown of Nintendo Switch Online service... has he changed his tune? He also spent some time with the Nintendo-partnered mobile game Dragalia Lost. Dale hones his skills and takes on Olmec in Spelunky and appreciates the majesty of Red Dead Redemption's landscapes. LeGrande digs into the 2nd-top-rated game of 2018, Forza Horizon 4. Intro: "BANG! (vocal...


Game Bytes :: September 30, 2018 :: No Fortnite for Old Men

Dale and Jeremy are holding down the news this week, and there's a load of it! We're still going to hit that 30-minute GameBytes Show sweet spot though, so hang on! We discuss the final outcome of Vivendi x Ubisoft, Sony makes a big reversal which may affect the broader medium of video games, events are canceled, IPs renewed, trademarks registered, and everybody is thirsty. Plus, we lay out the beginning of "the season" with new releases, and we clutch our pearls at scandals we have known in...


Game Bytes :: September 26, 2018 :: The Final Boss is Hubris

Jeremy, LeGrande, and Dale form this week's power trio to discuss the video games that they've played! After some trenchant discussion about closed captions, Jeremy begins with My Brother Rabbit from Artifex Mundi. Continuing with the desktop streaming service Parsec, he also played Guacamelee! 2, Cuphead, and Destiny 2 to test things out. LeGrande gets his elemental-damage multiplier on in Dead Cells, and accidentally buys Nier Automata. Dale puts a cap on FF14 for now, and then dons his...


Game Bytes :: September 23, 2018 :: Quality of Life is BACK

Jeremy, Dale, and LeGrande hold the weekly GameBytes Show convocation to discuss the ills of the world, technical problems be darned to heck! Although our news segment is abbreviated due to technology, we still bring you a full GameBytes Show episode (30 minutes!) full of information and discussion you NEED for the week to come! After covering big sellers, regulatory issues, and illness, we talk about new releases and we discuss the shortcomings of the business side of video games and we...


Game Bytes :: September 20, 2018 :: Made of MMO Parts

Dale, LeGrande, and Jeremy reunite to cover the games they've played during the past week (or more!) and we want YOU to join us. LeGrande squashes the big bugs of rogue-like Hollow Knight and continues directly to Dead Cells for wizard grenades! Jeremy tries out surprisingly robust Oregon-trail-like Tayles of Illyria, as well as spending an hour or two with The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit. Dale digs into XCOM-like XCOM 2, and completes the main campaign of Final Fantasy 14. Also,...


Game Bytes :: September 16, 2018 :: Gaming Gates: Less-Than-Alpha Timeline

Dale and Jeremy dive deeply into the news of video games, putting rumors to rest and covering the most important announcements and developments that YOU need to know. Nintendo's Direct was good but had disturbing moments, Spider-Man sells out, Destiny 2's new raid, and a slew of announcements, plus Marvel and Sony break some records! We hit the news and new releases, and we discuss the idea of artificial "gating" in games to keep us from the things we WANT. Intro: "Main Theme" - Marvel's...


Game Bytes :: September 13, 2018 :: Just a Dude, Not Very Doomy

Jerod and Jeremy are bringing it, a little late, but just in time to kick your weekend in the buns! Video games have been played. Which ones? We tried out the new Call of Duty battle royale mode "Blackout" (beta test), shot large-as-life demons in DOOM VFR, and quickly decided we're interested in the unlikely Victor Vran. Rock on.

Plus, we cover new releases and we discuss our memories of superhero games through...


Game Bytes :: September 5, 2018 :: Lord of the Manor: Forsaken Wardrobe

Jerod and Jeremy are on a hunt for vengeance! And by "vengeance" we mean "video games", but also "talking to you about the games they played"... Words are so complex sometimes! This week, Jeremy has been playing the new Forsaken DLC for Destiny 2, and talks about the campaign and the new "gambit" multiplayer mode. He's also playing Another World (aka Out of This World) on the PS Vita and PS4, and talks about the idea of learning-by-failing and the game's historical context. Jerod seeks...


Game Bytes :: September 3, 2018 :: Save the Last Official One for Me

We discuss combos and his future plans as an EVO contender with a new fight stick. Jeremy hits the mat with some Final Fantasy XV Episodes (minor spoilers), as well as the Destiny 2 Solstice of Heroes event. Finally, Jerod does a power intro and hits the ice with Super Blood Hockey and rattles some cages with...


Game Bytes :: August 12, 2018 :: Australian Emu Paradise

LeGrande and Jeremy swoop in like ninjas on hang-gliders to make sure YOU have the knowledge you need about this week in video games! Game regulation changes in Germany are afoot, along with more casualties in the Emu Wars of 2018. Monster Hunter World takes a bone greatsword to a couple of records on PC. Discord selling games? Chinese Zelda knockoffs? Bethesda suing private sellers? And which well-loved video game character gave up the ghost this week? Then we tackle new releases and...
