#210: Best Employee Evar!

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. But we soon forget about the sadness with a few awesome Sea of Thieves stories. In the news, Sea of Thieves has become a behemoth of a game, Fortnite breaks all the YouTube records, Resident Evil VII and The Division are getting enhanced for Xbox One X and No Mans Sky is coming to Xbox. That makes...


#209: Sandwich Mode

Simone entertains us with even more Fable fables, Kyle takes us on his Sea of Thieves adventures and Lee struggles with news, in what is probably our most profressional episode ever. Playstation console exclusive Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice comes to Xbox, with Xbox One X support in tow, Doom is coming with a 4K patch and Xbox is having another sale. We take a trip down memory lane and discuss the legendary Duke controller as well. But all the news is drowned out over the tidal...

Yarrr! Welcome aboard Ye Ole Xboxcast and sail with us on the high seas, as we seek to unravel the mysteries of this week in the land o’ Xbox. Take a wild guess at what we are super hyped about!

Apart from being pirates, we listen to Simone’s continued trials and tribulations in Fable 2, The Xboxcast’s Gears of War 4 event and even Kyle [...]

Xbox unveiled the world’s first Priate Blaster, PUBG gets some future planning, Everspace goes full 4K and the adorable PixARK gets shown to the world. Lee goes down the rumor rabbit hole and starts randomly...


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!

Want to hear what we thought of these games? Well listen and find out. Adding to that we discuss Mixer’s new controller sharing feature,...

This week Xbox 360 versions of The Witcher 2, Crackdown (which is 11 years old), Fable and Forza Horizon (yes, the original) got enhanced for the One X, which is pretty amazing, and they are looking better than ever. We go over the best selling games of January and number 10 will underwhelm you, Ubisoft is making all the right moves, Burnout Paradise is getting remastered and Destiny 2 gets an update. We also...

What we thought was a quiet week on the news side ends up with info coming at us from all sides! Luckily we are here to help break it all down for you. EA might lose Star Wars, mods coming to Cities: Skylines, Xbox One is on fire in Japan and GTA 5 sells how many copies!?

A Conversation With Merv

The Xboxcast Presents: A Conversation With Merv This week, we talk to a long-time friend and old colleague of Producer Paul’s. Merv worked at EB Games in Hastings and has some exciting stories to tell about the Gears Of War launch, dressing up in full camo and even pre-ordering $4,000 worth of games. We start off with some news as things are already ramping up in the world of gaming and Lee has been feeling a bit sad with missing his slot.


A Conversation With Jeremy

Our first podcast of 2018 brings a very rusty Xboxcast. These holidays might have been a little too good. While we struggle to get back into the groove, we yell questions at our special guest – Jeremy. Jeremy is a proud owner of an Oculus Rift and has spent many hours in VR, so it a was great opportunity to talk about the technology and where it could be going. If you like what you hear, follow Jeremy on his blog at Pythagean on Wordpress and his T [...]


A Conversation With Lee

For our last podcast of 2017, we have Lee on with us. You may have heard us mention him as Little Lee or Lieutenant Lee. Lee is new to the Xbox family and new to gaming in general, so his thoughts on Xbox come from a place of ‘innocence’… In a first, The Xboxcast all had more than one beer, so things got a little… excited… If you like what you hear, follow Lee @Lieutenantlee69 on Twitter and Xbox.


A Conversation With Rebekah

For our first special, we would like to introduce you to Rebekah. Rebekah is a completionist. If a game has an end, Rebekah has seen it. Does it have achievements? She has them all. And she is an unashamed Xbox fan, which is an added bonus. Show Rebekah some love and follow her on Xbox and Twitter at @SpiritedSojourn. –


#18: The Awardcast 2017

#17: The Wrong Type Of Chicken!

The Xboxcast has no microtransactions, but feel free to give us money anyways! This week, we discover that a certain game has been using the wrong type of chicken. Can you say scandal? We certainly can! We also talk about Democracy (the game of course) and Simone’s talent for being assassinated, True Achievements Christmas Challenge, Blizzard’s wonderful shade at EA and CyberPunk 2077 (which would you believe, STILL does not have a release date!) For the stories we have covered in this...


#16: Can Chickens Swim

Hello World and welcome to a podcast by grown up gamers that we like to call The Xboxcast. Trump might be insane, but we’re not here to talk about that. This week, we ask that age old question… Can chickens swim? And be honest, you don’t know either! Thats why you have to listen to this wonderful episode. But in other news, the Xbox One X is a top rated gadget, Mass Effect is 10 years old, CD Projekt Red cast all the shade and Minecraft gets all wet. And because we love our listeners,...
