What are you most excited about for E3?


#218: Pratt On A T-Rex

Chris Pratt riding a T-Rex and saving the world is the brand new franchise that you never knew you needed. Until now! So while that happens, we stop everything to completely go gaga for State of Decay 2. Seriously, no other game exists for The Xboxcast any more. We’re all playing it, and you totally should to. In fact we even get Jeremy to join us and talk about his adventures in the zombie wasteland. Fortnite gets sued by PUBG, more dinosaurs get shown off for Jurassic World Evolution...


#217: Just Expect Sarcasm

Sarcasm. Its that thing that you never expect. Unless, of course, you do. In that case, its not unexpected. This week, Kyle and Simone are back, and we are almost back to normal programing. We talk about Apple giving all the 3.5 jacks to Microsoft for use in their new Xbox Adaptive Controller, more titles leaving Game Pass and Fortnite getting $100 million for its foray into e-sports.

Can you believe it! We’re already 10 episodes into Season 2. And Destiny 2 is pants? For episode 10, we have a very sad Simone. It seems life in Fable 2 is getting a little too realistic.

A Conversation With Josh

The Xboxcast Present: A Conversation With Josh For our March Special, we chat to Josh, who is long time friend of Jordan, and certainly knows his stuff. Josh is super knowledgeable about all things gaming, and it was a pleasure to talk to him. From Elite Dangerous, Monster Hunter World, For Honor and Halo, we cover exactly how many hours he’s played. And lets just say that you will be surprised. And jealous. He’s inspired at least one member of The Xboxcast to devote more time to...


#206: Stupid Clown Wizard

Nah ah, you’re a stupid clown wizard! In what has been the quietest week ever for Xbox news, we have all decided that we really like games. And so we played a bunch of different ones!

EA might lose Star Wars, mods coming to Cities: Skylines, Xbox One is on fire in Japan and GTA 5 sells how many copies!?
