S3 Ep30: IM83 - INDIE GAMES VS PLAYSTATION
No, we don't talk like that in the episode. Yes, we have fully embraced the dark side... of clickbait. Then again this is simultaneously episode 100 and 83, so all the rules are off the table. I'll stop bringing that up after this episode, promise. In the first half of the show we talk about news. Specifically that clickbait title, Hideo Kojima, Dead Space, Silent Hill and loads more. My favourite part is when I call of Todd Howard out for his d*ck move of publishing an announcement trailer for Elder Scrolls 6 (VI), 3 years before bothering to start to make the game. Classy of me, that, I thought. Then in the back half it's the latest edition of the titular podcast itself. On which, we look at the recent revelation that PlayStation doesn't really do all that well by indie game developers. However, unlike other facets on the online content world - we look at it with this mysterious force called... balance. Perish the thought internet. Sarcasm aside, it is a good episode that looks at the bigger picture for indie games and their place on console store fronts. Join us on Patreon for more

S3 Ep29: IM82 - E3 2021 POST-MORTEM
Somehow we can be on episode 82 but 1 off our 100th podcast. The internet is weird. This week, we collect together the first news episode post-e3 on which we talk about the few news stories to slither from underneath the gargantuan heft of e3. Not that this episode totally escapes the electronic entertainment expo of youtube playlists. No, we take a good amount of time to talk about whether or not it made a successful return. Then in the second half, we talk about some games we have played recently which includes the like of the masterful Ninja Gaiden Collection and the metal detecting shenanigans of the magnificent truffle pigs. There's more, of course, there is, but you don't need me to explain everything. Those two northern scamps on the podcast can do that themselves. e3 trailer video one e3 trailer video two Patreon

S3 Ep28: IM81 - ELBOW DEEP IN E3 RUMOURS
As a final apology for my laxness in getting the podcasts out, not only are you getting the latest news trash a day early. You are also getting the next episode of Impossible Mission about a week early too. In the future, we'll try to stick to this and get episodes out on a Monday. Anyway. In the first half - we have a news trash. On which we talk about all the leaky susan's in videogame press and all the rumours they keep dropping. After which we have three stories on the bounce about members of the video game old guard either leaving or rejoining somewhere and more. And because all the trailers have ran for their nearest digital showcase, we have done something different. We talk about games we would like to see more of in this upcoming summer of games announcements, a concept which one Rob got completely wrong and ended up banging on about comic books or something. Then, in the back half. It's a relatively simple concept for one of our hypothetical chats. China. They haven't impacted the video game industry yet, we talk about what might happen when they do. They are a sleeping video game giant, or dragon. #podernfamily #videogames #news #e3 #rumours #gamingleaks

S3 Ep27: IM80 - WE NOW PRONOUNCE YOU... MICROSOFT+BETHESDA
All up to date now. Won't be making the mistake of forgetting to upload episodes to the podcast feed. My bad. My really bad. This week we collect a new trash and an impossible mission. We probably should rename this feed news trash weekly games blast or something, it belongs to news trash more than it belongs to impossible mission, these days. In the news trash half, we talk about the sony investor relations document, more EA ultimate team sneakiness, timesplitters, square enix going through their emo phase, netflix wanting more 'games', and more. Then in the back half, we talk about something we did a episode or two back. There was a story where Ubi Soft said they are going to simutanously do less and more free to play games. After we figured out that their statement was just corporate boggins, we decided to pounce on the idea of Ubi Soft, in fact, doing more FTP stuff and digged deep into that and The Division heartland.

S3 Ep26: IM episode 79 - Narita Boy & Fatal Frame (Project Zero) Return?
Just one more then we are all caught up. This episode is a twofer, collecting May's Marmalade and an episode of News Trash - meaning this is twice the episode. In the first half, we have news trash, on which the realisation that this semi-conductor shortage is real serious hits - why? because Nintendo is feeling the pinch, Sony has loads of ps5 exclusive buns in the oven, Xbox is hitting China and much more. Plus a truly evil trailer for Fatal Frame or Project Zero, I don't know, names are weird. Then in the back half, we have games to talk about. This includes what is either a nostalgia headache or Gloryhole in Narita Boy, abstract weirdness of two unique flavourings with Genesis Noir and Buildings have feelings too. Bookending all that indie is Rob's flirtations with GamePass in Sunset Overdrive & Star Wars: Fallen Order. Oooh, sexy times.

S3 Ep26: IM episode 78 - Resident Evil 7 was no scary & no profit for Xbox?
Two more episodes today, again, I cannot apologise enough for not keeping up to date with these episodes. I am a bad podcast producer, bad. No treats for me today. In this news trash solo episode we talk about the high price of digital PS games, Xbox not making any profit on any machine, discord to PlayStation in 2022, e3 steaming ahead, resident evil 7 was apparently too scary, and more.

S3 Ep25: IM77: Xbox Profits up, Resident Evil Village & Konami are Alive!
Two in one day is probably enough for today, more new episodes will go live tomorrow so we will be up to date by Thursday - good fortune willing. In this episode, we harp on about 7.8 million PS5's in the wild, PlayStation investing more in exclusives, Xbox doing much better, EA being their usual sh*tbird selves, there's a hunger for socially responsible games, Konami is actually doing stuff, and much more. Including us waxing lovingly about the most adorable Japanese promotional campaign for Resident Evil Village. Give us a series and inject it into our veins.

S3 Ep25: IM76 - Sony Store Reversal + Assassins Creed Mr. Men + More
Bit of a crunched up blast of trash, apologies, life sometimes gets on top of you and tasks get overlooked and forgotten - this is one such time. Sorry, after this salvo of NT, it won't happen again. Fingers Crossed. In this episode, Rob and Prob talk about Playstation Reversal, "Playstation Plus Video Pass" Xbox Dropping Xbox Live Requirement for Free to Play Online Games, Olympic VR eSports, ageing gamers, Assassins Creed Mr Men Crossovers, Ubi Soft and Blockchain sitting in a tree, Amazon's Lord of the Rings MMO being cancelled, shocking CDPR red profit, Twitch growth (which is an odd statement) and the new Mortal Kombat movie. Of course, there is more - it's news trash we rarely stay on topic. If you want to keep this podcast Absolutely Free from advertising, why not donate to our Patreon?

S3 Ep24: Sony Schrier Article + Paradise Lost Review - Impossible Mission 75
This time on the Omni-feed, we collect April Games Marmalade and the latest News Trash. In Marmalade we look at Paradise Lost as well as some older titles and oddities. Part of which includes Rob just wrecking Donut County for Prob. Something which I make absolutely no apologies about - if someone presents an open goal like that. It's just wasteful to not make some jokes at its expense. Then in the back half, we talk about Loot Boxes, Six Days to Fallujah, E3, Jason Schrier powering himself with the tears of Playstation fanboys, CSGO in trouble with the filth, Twitch records and a nice little chat about the gorgeous indie title, Harold Halibut, to round out a pretty negative video games week.

S3 Ep23: Sony done Screwed up with their closures - Impossible Mission #74
News Trash doesn't have solo billing this week, it shares the centre stage with an episode of Impossible Mission in which we totally don't get carried away about the fallout of the Sony PS3/Vita/PSP store closures. Nope. Not a jot of exaggeration or anything, no, not us, no sir-ee. Any-way. Now that we've totally convinced you of that, we have to kick things off with a news week that isn't quite as heavy as last week. Weirder? Yeah, for sure, there's just less of it. We have more on Sony's store cockup, in-app purchases boom, academic studies pointing out what we all already knew, Activision-Blizzard being Activision-Blizzard, Ar madness, and the unlikeliest of contenders to stop a global games cheat-ring. SUPPORT US ON PATREON And until next time, belly dance!

S3 Ep22: Playstation out of touch with their own history (Impossible Mission 73)
This week is a News Trash solo outing and there's a whole buttload of video games news to dig into. There's so much, in fact, that I'm not even going to bother trying to write it all down. Instead, I'll say just these few teasing sentences. Prob doesn't like the new Gollum Game; Playstation shutting down the PS3, Vita and PSP sucks hard; Sony is doing some movies, one of which we could do without; and, SEGA wins. The 8-year-old in me is bouncing off the walls at that last one. SUPPORT US ON PATREON We have all sorts of news stuff and plans regarding our Patreon, so follow us on social media to keep up with all that. I'll post it here on future episodes, but for more details check it out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Check out the George A. Romero Resident Evil Script HERE

S3 Ep21: PSVR 2, Returnal & More - Impossible Mission 72
This week on Impossible Mission, we open with the latest from the world of gaming news and a back half where we talk about the upcoming PS5 exclusive, Returnal. Come for all that, stay for the weird metaphors about the state of the gaming industry. We talk Square Enix Presents 2021 (in the future, we'll be releasing digital events like this on their own under the banner "trailer trash", which will also be under this heaving feed). PSVR 2, a new cloud gaming service, UK Games Industry smashing records like teenagers smash like buttons on youtube, Red Candle Games, and EVO. Plus Digressions, we have them too. Lots of 'em.

S3 Ep20: On which we make some Bold Xbox Predictions (Impossible Mission 71)
Time for another episode of your salty neighbourhood videogames podcast. This time out its a solo venture for News Trash, so let us hit you with the full weight of our news. Before any of that, though - you read that image and episode title right; we make some bold Xbox predictions but not the sort you might be thinking. The sheer tease of it all. This week's Stories include Microsoft's Acquisition of ZeniMax Bethesda, Microsoft testing a chrome based browser for the series X, Outriders Dev puts limits on their Demo, Roblox makes Astonishing Debut on Stock Market and the debut of TRAILER TRASH: where we talk about the Dynasty Warriors Movie Trailer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rc1h9sOqyps #podernfamily @xbox #gamesnews

S3 Ep19: Square Remaking More Classics & The Great 2021 Games Drought (Impossible Mission 70)
News and a nice old chat with two smug people who dared predict that the videogames industry wasn't robust enough to not be effected the the biggest elephant in the room since World War II. Yes, I'm happy enough to admit this episodes back half is fuelled by smug. Before that though, there's the small matter of news. There's a PSVR blowout, 2020 Console Sales Figures and Nintendo Switch Pro?, Square Enix plan to remake more of their old titles, Sony to Stop Selling and Renting Movies & TV shows on PSN Store & Ultimate Team Player gave lifetime ban after sending racist messages to Football Legend, Ian Wright. Of course, there's plenty of diversions too. This part of the show isn't called News Trash for no reason, after all. Then, we talk about the great games drought of 2021 - which we predicted way back in August last year. Amazed more people didn't see it coming, to be honest. #podernfamily #squareenix #sony #nintendoswitchpro #psvr #fifa21

S3 Ep18: Playstation 5 State of Play & EA Scrap Live-Service Dragon Age & More (Impossible Mission 69)
Another solo outing for News Trash, focus on the trash - there. Despite the video version being beleaguered by issues of all kinds, this audio version was all rosy. Buttery smooth as all those Americans say on the Intertubes. The stories we look at in this episode include... the latest Playstation State of Play & Other PS News. An Update in the Apple Vs. Epic "War". Sony have decided to shut down and Assess Japan Studio 22:16 Illinois Politician Tries to get GTA banned... in 2021!?Twisted Metal as a TV show!? and News from Uncharted Movie, and EA scrap plans for live-service Dragon Age. Of course, us being who we are, we don't exactly stay on topic. But come on, show me a podcast that actually does and I'll show you a liar. Podcasting is the medium of wafflers and we waffle with the best.

S3 Ep17: Games Pass & The Burden of Choice... (Impossible Mission 68)
Impossible Mission has returned to the impossible mission podcast feed. Fancy that? Also. Fancy that it's debuting here instead of over on youtube. The first half of the show is given over to News Trash, our weekly look at news from the big, bold and beautiful world of video games. Well... it's big and bold. Some of the news we look at includes... Updates on the PS5 DualSense court case, Apple Vs Epic Continues, EA and their Codemasters Acquisition, e3 and pals, and a Konami rumour blowout. On that last thing, we have to apologise to any Hideo Kojima fanboys, sorry, but also not sorry as it's our opinion and everyone is welcome to their opinion as long as they don't ruin other peoples lives with it. Looking at you here, Internet. Then, in the back half, Impossible Mission returns! On that episode of Impossible Mission, we talk about the problem of having access to more games than you can possibly ever play. You know? The Games Pass model. Then, at the back end of the show, we try out a new closing feature... GAMES FIGHT! #podernfamily #xbox #EA #GamesFight #Konami #GamesNews

S3 Ep16: PS5's Dual Sense May Face Legal Action (Impossible Mission 67)
Apologies about the audio quality. We tried a new recording method and the kinks have yet to be worked out. Still, News has to go on. There's no stopping for any audio interference. If it's good enough for news broadcasts, it's more than good enough for YouTube. Still, we apologise and are working hard to fix these issues. Right. The stories. PS5's DualSense is the latest controller to suffer from "stick drift" CD Projekt Red hacked source code has apparently been bought at auction Warner Bros. Games have patented the nemesis system from the Shadow of War/Mordor Games Kingdom Hearts is going multi-platform by making its PC debut There is going to be a 25th-anniversary pokemon concert, featuring Post Malone of all people.

S3 Ep15: 99% of January Games Sales are for Nintendo Switch, Morbid: Seven Acolytes and More... (Impossible Mission 66)
Another Twofer on the podcast feed. First up is News Trash on which we talk about some of the following hoo-haa. AMD "demand for their gaming chips has exceeded supply, and this is going to continue to be the case for the first half of 2020"; 99% of Video Games Sales in Japan (so far in 2021) have been for the Nintendo Switch; Google Stadia closes Games and Entertainment Studios; and More. Then, some games we've been playing. Like Morbid: the Seven Acolytes, in which Prob spends too much time detailing which way the camera points and Steamworld Dig 2 which made Rob tired.

S3 Ep14: Riot Breaks out at Japanese PS5 Event, Hollow Knight, Paradise Killer & More (Impossible Mission 65)
In 2021, Impossible Mission is three shows; Impossible Mission (Obviously, which is going fortnightly), The Monthly Games-we've-been-playing Chat, Marmalade And, New boy, News Trash, a weekly show in which we cover the less exposed video games news story. In the first episode, we talk about: EA set up new Studio to make the upcoming Skate Game; Amazon Spent Nearly $500 million in a year on its gaming division; Netflix and Legendary Pictures to Produce animated Tomb Raider Series; Ninja Theory to halt updates for Bleeding Edge After a Year; and, Riot Breaks out and police are called at PS5 event in Japan. Then in the back-half, instead of doing a boring, predictable best games of 2020 video, we thought it'd be more fitting for us to talk about some of the highlights of our video game backlog that we played through 2020. Hollow Knight, Paradise Killer, The Last of Us Part II and much, much more... What about you, what are some of your highlights of the past 12 months that you finally got around to?

S3 Ep14: Let's Talk About VideoGame Music! (Impossible Mission 64)
This is a deeply cynical episode for the most cynical time of the year. I mean festive. How could I possibly confuse the two things? How very bad of me. Controversial opinions thy name is Impossible Mission. This week we talk about video game music. Then we do a 2021 videogames preview a.k.a. 8-ish games that we are looking forward to in 2021. Not much else to say about this one, it's a "does exactly what it says on the tin" type of episode. It is the last one of 2020, mind you, so hope you had a happy Christmas and have a good (& safe news year), we will *see* you again in 2021.
