PlayStation Unchained is back once again after a short break (sorry about that!), and there's plenty to discuss!
Well, gamers, it's been a fun run, but RDGH is coming to an end--sort of! This show is not necessarily about PlayStation, which isn't right for a news outlet that is. Even so, we're still going to be bringing you great information and discussion about the world of gaming.
This week on PlayStation Unchained, join Garri Bagdasarov, Ben Shillabeer-Hall, and host Mike Harradence as they discuss the world of PlayStation gaming!
This week has been an interesting one in gaming, and RDGH is back once again to give you the details! Join host Glenn Gordon (who apologizes for his strange audio this week), Garri Bagdasarov, and Ben Shillabeer-Hall for episode 43 of the Racial Diversity Gaming Hour.
One of our Twitter friends brought up Wander, the combat-free MMO (yes, combat-free MMO) coming soon to PlayStation 4. It sounds interesting, despite a scarcity of information, but can it succeed? Feel free to tweet with us as well! Just follow @TheRDGH.
PlayStation could be preparing to become a bit more involved in its sales. The company recently added a field for a discount code in the PS4 PlayStation Store, but how does Sony intend to use it? Also, Guerrilla Games is hiring for a media producer—could it be getting ready to promote its mysterious new game?
We don’t tend to hear much about South Korea when it comes to console-based video games, but PlayStation 4 is apparently doing well there—so well, in fact, that more Korea-focused games are on the horizon.
Also, find out just what free eye candy will be coming to DRIVECLUB after the game’s dreadful launch issues.
Xbox One is doing quite well for the holidays. An EA exec stated that global Xbox sales are “catching up quickly” to those of the PlayStation 4, but the crew thinks that PS4 may not have much to worry about going into 2015.
Gamers have apparently been upset with Xbox after Microsoft offered early adopters a free copy of LIMBO. An article on gimmegimmegames.com posits that the $10 indie is not enough to reward gamers for being the first to purchase the Xbox One, and that early adopters of the console have been “shafted” in favor of those getting great Xbox One bundles this year. It doesn’t stop there—some gamers have been outraged at Gamespot.com for bringing up concerns with the Xbox One in a recent video, accusing it of subtly promoting the PS4 and being “biased” against Microsoft’s console. Yeah, Glenn’s not too happy with gamers on this one.
Finally, the crew takes a look at a great article by an epidemiologist named Georgie Catto from powerupgaming.co.uk, who discusses the plausibility of a pandemic-based apocalypse like that in The Last of Us. The article is a great read and definitely worth checking out.
Our intro music this week is from Overclocked Remix. It’s a remix from Sonic CD, the background music for the Lava Reef Zone in act 1, as well as a couple other songs from the game thrown in here and there. The remix is called “Chips out of Water,” and it’s by Rexy, from OCremix. Our outro is called Trinity. Kingdom Hearts fans, you’ll recognize it quickly—it’s a remix of Dearly Beloved, from the Kingdom Hearts menus. It’s an excellent remix by Tspeiro. This are amazing remixes that you can have in full, for free! To get them and many more, head straight to OCremix.org.
That's it for episode 43! Next week will bring episode 44 and a host of new stories (and better audio from Glenn)! Until then, remember to avoid discrimination against video game platforms based on color or logo. In other words, don't be a racist.
Unchained has returned this week with host Ben Shillabeer-Hall and Garri Bagdasarov at the helm. It's a quiet news week for PlayStation, but there's still a good hour of stuff to talk about:
Once again, RDGH is back after a particularly interesting week in the world of video games. This week, join host Glenn Gordon, Garri Bagdasarov, Ben Shillabeeer-Hall, and (eventually) Fraser Miller as they discuss what has been going on:
Week-to-week sales for the Xbox One have tripled in the United States since the console’s holiday price drop, and according to Microsoft, Xbox One has been ahead of PlayStation 4 for the past couple of weeks. How might Sony fight back, and will the ten-month streak finally be broken?
Meanwhile, the Uncharted movie continues its turbulent gestation. Producers sought Chris Pratt, who played Star Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, to play Uncharted’s Nathan Drake, but the actor declined the role. The crew thinks that the movie’s producers may be going in the wrong direction altogether with their casting goals.
Sony has been visibly working to increase the hype for its PlayStation Experience event next month. Could that help or hurt the end result?
DRIVECLUB has received yet another update on its Facebook page. Evolution Studios is still hard at work, but is offering gamers some freebies to help win some good graces. That’s nice, but is their focus in the wrong place? Also, find out when the update with the weather effects should finally hit the PS4.
Finally, NPD results are in for October, and Xbox One is in a better position than it has ever been in. If Microsoft's data is true, PlayStation 4's now ten-month winning streak could be in danger. The crew discusses PlayStation 4's prospects for the holidays, and why a win for Xbox on November might not be so consequential.
Our intro music this week is called Breaking the Ice, a remix by DigiE of Overclocked Remix. It comes from the Ice Cap Zone of Sonic the Hedgehog 3. To download this and many other great video game remixes in full, for free, head straight to OCremix.org.
Our ending music is a song you heard part of before way back at the end of episode 19. It’s a remix of the background music from the Sunny Glade level of the Super Adventure Box dungeon. The background music itself is a remix of “Logan’s Journey,” part of the soundtrack from Guild Wars 2. This is by a talented artist named DusK. You can find him and many more incredible metal video game remixes on his YouTube channel, ItStartsatDusk, and also at Bandcamp, where he is selling his entire six-track album of Super Adventure Box remixes for literally any price you want to pay. To see and download the album, go to itstartsatdusk.bandcamp.com.
All this and more comprises another great episode of RDGH. Come back next week for episode 43. Until then, remember to shun all notions of discrimination of platforms for their color or logo. Don’t be a racist.
Unchained is here, and a new challenger has appeared! Join co-hosts Mike Harradence and Ben Shillabeer-Hall, along with newcomer Neil Bolt, as they discuss the latest in PlayStation gaming.
The work week begins anew, and with it comes a brand new episode of the Racial Diversity Gaming Hour! Join Garri Bagdasarov, Ben Shillabeer-Hall, and host Glenn Gordon for more discussion about another great week in the world of gaming.
There were lots of tweets this week, and we love hearing what you have to say! To join the party, just find us on Twitter @TheRDGH.
Ubisoft seems to have had a momentary lapse in judgment as its upcoming games inexplicably vanished from the Steam store last week, only to silently return some days later. Okay then, Ubisoft.
Xbox One has had “hundreds” (but not really) of new updates over the past several months, and while Microsoft’s console has not had nearly as many real improvements as Xbox’s Major Nelson would have us believe, the console has indeed gotten a lot better over time.
In fact, RDGH host Glenn Gordon actually bought his first Xbox, and now that he officially owns both consoles, he has some perspective on Xbox, PlayStation, and the console war as a whole to share with everyone.
Xbox is doing well in other areas too; combined, Xbox One and Xbox 360 managed to sell just a bit more of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare than PlayStation’s combined efforts, but perhaps not decisively so. The crew takes a look at the numbers and what they mean for the next generation of Call of Duty.
BlizzCon has come and gone, leaving new information in its wake. A new FPS called Overwatch is on its way from the World of Warcraft developer, and two new posters have arrived for the movie “Warcraft,” expected to hit theaters in 2016.
This week’s intro music is a cheerful little tune from Overlocked Remix. It’s called “Polka Center,” and it’s a happy remix of the Pokémon Center music from Pokémon Red Version, done by remixer “worldsbestgrandpa” from OCremix. The ending is also from OCremix. We’ve used it before. It’s called “The Passing of the Blue Crown,” and it comes from Megaman 3. The remix was done by Sixto Sounds, Steppo, and zircon from OCremix. To download these and many more great video game remixes in full, for free, head to OCremix.org.
All of this and much more comprises the latest episode of RDGH. Come back next week for episode 42. Until then, remember to avoid discrimination against video game platforms based on color or manufacturer. In other words, don’t be a racist.
Unchained had a little break from its regular episodes, but returns this week with Episode 58! Join co-hosts Mike Harradence and Ben Shillabeer-Hall as they discuss the latest news in PlayStation gaming.
What's up, gamers? RDGH has finally reached its fortieth episode, and with it comes a new member of the crew! Matt "Mario" Fernandez joins Garri Bagdasarov and host Glenn Gordon this week for RDGH's latest landmark.
