PX34 - What Games Deserve a Reboot, Remake or Remaster?

10/15/2018
More
With all of the remakes, reboots and remasters that are going around in video games these days, it seems like developers and publishers are determined to plumb the depths of gaming history to unearth some long-forgotten treasures. Join Rob, Andy and Producer Rob as, after a brief discussion about the games that they've been playing recently (Death’s Gambit, Far Cry Primal and F1 2018 respectively), they dive into the mausoleum of lost games to find some titles that are worthy of...

PX33 - Are Collector’s Editions Worth The Money?

9/25/2018
More
The video games market is expensive and over-saturated, but collector’s editions, special editions and the ubiquitous “game of the year” editions have generally held a special place in the hearts and wallets of gamers. The question is, are they really worth all of that extra money? Gaming is, after all, an expensive hobby, and not everyone has a bottomless wallet. Join Andy, Mark and Producer Rob as they venture down one what turns out to be one of gaming’s stranger rabbit holes in an effort...

PX32 - What Games Are You Proud Of Completing?

9/4/2018
More
On the last episode we challenged each other to play a game that we owned that we didn't buy and wasn't released this year, and the results are definitely … weird. Andy found himself playing an obscure online game called Dino D-Day and the Omen-esque horror Lucius 2\. On the other hand, Mark sample the "My First JRPG" mechanics of Guardian's Crusade on the PS1 before he got distracted and wound up playing Stranded Kids on the Gameboy Color. As for Producer Rob, he decided to take Dragoneer's...

PX31 - How Many Games Haven't You Finished?

8/1/2018
More
Like movies and music, video games are one of those strange things that you wind up collecting without thinking about it. They just seem to accumulate over time until your risk life and limb trying to sort through them. But how many of them have you actually played properly, and more importantly how many of them have you finished? Join the Press X gang who, after a brief chat about Conan: Exiles, Theme Park, Farcry Arcade and Touhou Kabuto Burst Battle, wax nostalgic about games magazines,...

PX30 - Are Google Making a Games Console?

7/8/2018
More
Everybody wants to get into video games, but rumour has it that perpetual late starters Google (think about it), are making their own console. So what does that mean for the manufacturers like Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo? After our usual look at what we’ve been playing (Panzermadels, The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit, Gravel and Onrush), Mark, Andy and Prob stare at Google and take an irreverent journey through video games before somehow winding up in a very strange classroom … If...

PX29 - E3 Roundup 2018

6/15/2018
More
There's more Press X than you can shake a stick it and a whole lot more games to talk about as Andy, Rob and Producer Rob tackle the biggest show in the video game calendar - E3! With a massive number of titles being announced at this year's event, along with some notable ups and downs, we chart a course through the choppy waters of gaming to fish out some our highlights from the various conferences and the the E3 floor, including Spider-Man, Cyberpunk 2077, Metro Exodus, Assassins Creed...

PX28 - Dreams and Expectations: E3 2018

6/9/2018
More
E3 has just begun so Mark and Producer Rob take a flight of fancy and postulate, peruse and ponder on the possibilities that will be showcased at this annual cavalcade of video games.

PX27 - Level Designs by Domino

5/25/2018
More
In a rather odd turn of events, Raw Thrills and Play Mechanix have teamed up with 343 Industries to create a new four-player arcade machine called HALO: Fireteam Raven. In other news, Valve have set out to remove sexual content from Steam by censoring or removing visual novels (but leaving games like The Witcher and Leisure Suit Larry), and the ongoing 1980s nostalgia trend will soon get a new addition with a Garbage Pail Kids mobile game.

PX26 - A Generation of Napoleons

5/20/2018
More
Surprising things are happening this week as Belgium bans in-game loot boxes under the country’s gambling laws - which may have unforeseen repercussions … In other news, drugs are being hidden in old NES cartridges and PC Building Simulator may become part of the IT curriculum in schools.

PX25 - How Much Of A Thing Is A Thing?

5/15/2018
More
After a long hiatus where we all left to travel and “find” ourselves, Press X returns in an altered format. On this return episode, join Mark, Andy and Producer Rob as they discuss the Megadrive Mini, controversy about Farcry 5, eye-tracking software and Minecraft, the Western release of Shinobi Refle: Senran Kagura, and PUBG’s “ransomware”.

It's the last episode before Press X goes on hiatus for a while, but fear not as we will be back in a new form in the future.

PX23 - Stress Relief for Japanese Salary Men

8/8/2017
More
Press X returns to talk about more games that we've been playing recently, video games publishers and developers that are trading in nostalgia, and the rise and fall and rise of the point-and-click genre. This week we've been playing a veritable smorgasbord of games, from the mobile-to-PC port First Strike: Final Hour and beat-'em-up but not-quite-sequel Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2, to the nostalgia-fest that is Yooka-Laylee and the Haruki Murakami-themed point-and-click adventure Memoranda. As if...

PX22 - Anime and Arms, Anime and Cut Scenes

7/31/2017
More
We're a video games podcast aren't we? Maybe? It depends on the day I guess? This week we have a plateful of anime-themed gaming for your tastebuds. First up we have the release of the rarest thing in gaming - a new Nintendo franchise - with a slightly surreal punch-'em-up called Arms. After that we launch into a trio of titles with a strong connection to anime, starting with Accel World Vs. Sword Art Online: Millennium Twilight before moving on to the much-anticipated Valkyria Revolution,...

PX21 - This is Micro!

7/19/2017
More
We return to the expansive wilds of the video game world for that part of the annual release schedule that is often referred to as a barren wasteland. A quick rummage around the box of games leads to a very mixed bag of things to play, including Cladun Returns: This is Sengoku!, DiRT 4, Micro Machines: World Series and Dark Rose Valkyrie, and as if that wasn't enough, we also talk about early gaming memories. Until next time, don't play anything we wouldn't play. #TheGeekShow #PressX...

PX20 - E3 2017 Special

6/20/2017
More
Now that the dust has settled it's time to survey the wreckage left by the biggest gaming convention on the planet, which can only mean one thing. It's time for our E3 special! We take a look at all the interesting happenings (including the Xbox One X and more), but since there's no point in bringing up the same titles we discussed on last year's special we're sticking to only the newest game announcements. Until next time, don't play anything we wouldn't play. #PressX #TheGeekShow #E3...

PX19 - Friday The 13th: Tokyo Dreamfall

6/13/2017
More
While all the other gaming podcasts are off flirting with trailers, we're talking about games we've been playing. Don't panic though, as we'll be joining the throng next week when all the E3 dust has settled. It's not a classic selection of games this week, but the titles we have up our sleeves include Operation Babel: New Tokyo Legacy, The Town of Light, Dreamfall Chapters, Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception and, saving the best till last, Friday the 13th - The Game. Until next time, don't...

PX18 - Steel Birthday: Disney's Injustice

6/4/2017
More
Sarcasm isn't the lowest form of wit. It's actually puns and bad segues, and we emphatically prove that in this week as we work through a mega-list of diverse games (you can imagine how ridiculous things get). So, on this episode we take a look at *deep breath* Birthdays: The Beginning, Outlast 2, Endless Space 2, The Disney Afternoon Collection (DuckTales 1 & 2, TaleSpin, Darkwing Duck, and Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers 1 & 2), Akiba's Beat, Steel Division: Normandy '44 and Injustice 2 ......

PX17 - The Walking Dragon's Surge

5/22/2017
More
The Surge is most definitely not The Purge. That said, how good would a Purge game be in the right hands? Welcome to Press X, The Geek Show podcast network's very own video games show, and this week we've got the sci-fi techno-horror The Surge, A New Frontier - the latest season of the Telltale's The Walking Dead adventure series, and grand strategy title Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIII (you don't need to play the other twelve). We round out the show with goblin stealth-em-up, Styx:...

PX16 - Puyo Puyo Persona

5/15/2017
More
This week we hit the wall with gaming exhaustion at it's most incomprehensible before finding our happy place. We start by getting elbow deep in the strange puzzle combination of Puyo Puyo Tetris, the cute-yet-gothic puzzle-platformer A Rose in the Twilight, and indie roguelike action-platform game Toy Odyssey: The Lost and Found. After that we talk about the state of affairs then get lost in the crafting wonders of Atelier Firis: The Alchemist and the Mysterious Journey before finishing...

PX15 - Guardians of the Lego Kingdom

5/10/2017

Controversial opinions and sandwich conspiracies ahoy on this latest episode of Press X. On the gaming side of things (that is what we're all about after all), our bounty includes a load of LEGO (Worlds and City: Undercover), the strange Japanese school-based visual novel stylings of Danganronpa, the latest Telltale excursion in the form of Guardians of the Galaxy, the rather lovely Celtic puzzler Scéal, and a contender for most laboured subtitle of the year - Kingdom Hearts 2.8 Final...
