Ep111 - Unfinished Swan Song
BIG KIDS PLAYGROUND! Go find them and follow/listen to them! http://www.bigkidsplayground.net/ There you go, promised I'd do that, this is the fourth show I couldn't remember live on the show! As the title suggests we are calling time on our weekly live show/podcast, but this isn't the end for us in terms of output. Listen to the show for a better explanation but you'll be seeing more content starting to appear in a few weeks over on our twitch and youtube channels: twitch.thegamescast.com youtube.thegamescast.com Thank you to all of you that have listened, be it regularly or occasionally. It's been a tough decision but we know our podcast output has fallen short of what we expect it to be so it's time to call it a day. This isn't the end of the podcast. We expect to return to it at some point in the future but there is not set timescale on that. Keep up with us on twitter (@thegamescast) and facebook.com/thegamescast, as well as on our website. We'll see you on the flipside!

Ep107-Halo (aka F*** Off Collins)
Look, all three of the teammade it on to the show. At the same time. On the same night! Surprisingly enough this week we talked about Halo and GTA V a lot. So if you don't like either of those franchises, probably best not to listen. Add in Dalek Sex Talking about Apps, (although he doesn't give any fucks anymore), the Retro Tunes competition, What We've Been Playing and a dose of QuizUp. Time for some linkage: Halo Stuff - http://www.computerandvideogames.com/480507/halo-the-master-chief-collection-launch-trailer-released/ http://www.gamespot.com/articles/microsoft-exec-talks-bigger-xbox-one-hard-drives-m/1100-6423435/ GTA V Stuff - http://www.vg247.com/2014/11/07/gta-5-content-from-all-11-online-updates-will-be-in-ps4xbox-one-story-mode/ http://www.vg247.com/2014/11/07/gta-online-heists-coming-to-all-platforms-soon-says-rockstar/ Tony Hawk is getting his skateboard zimmer out - http://www.purexbox.com/news/2014/11/new_tony_hawk_game_en_route_to_consoles_in_2015 Share Play not as share-y as we thought - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-11-06-not-all-games-are-on-board-with-ps4-share-play Come back next week for us recounting how many pads we've destroyed playing Halo multiplayer.

Ep106-The Wedding Sex Episode

Ep105-Post Stag Do, Pre Wedding
There was no plan other than make a show this week and by god you can tell! Let's just leave it there shall we, probably best. However if you want to join in with the Jelly game challenge and see how quick you can beat level 1, get it from: http://qrostar.skr.jp/data/jelly1000.zip It's as safe as we can be sure it's safe, but we don't take responsibility for any viruses/infections that may befall your device after installing. We didn't get any so we're sure it's OK, but at your own risk and all that. Enjoy folks!

What else do you need to know?

Ep101 - All back to "normal"
Well we tried to go back to normal but it didn't quite go that way. Or maybe it did, depends on your viewpoint. This week it was all about GamesCom and how much we've fallen in love with MiniMetro from Dinosaur Polo Club. Here's the list of stuff we talked about starting off with a link to buy the best early access game yet: MiniMetro - http://dinopoloclub.com/minimetro/ Then the stories we picked out which I think we mostly covered were this lot.

This is Episode 100!
It's Episode 100, what more do you need to know!? We still do Retro Tunes, What We've Been Playing (including lots of Elite talk), revisiting EA Access, and the QuizUp challenge. Most of the show is a history lesson of us with loads of clips of us going right back to 2005 when our podcasting life began. It's a long show, and we still haven't even started on Season 2 of TGC yet! That's for next week (if Duncan can manage to pull the right clips out!). We'll hopefully be getting a "best of" type show put together with our favourite clips, but we would love to hear of any standout moments you guys pick too. That's it, no links this week given it was a very special show. If you guys could also help us to convince Paul to come back on the show more often that would be awesome! Till next time!

Ep99 - Access Now!
One away from the big 100 and we have a hell of a lot to prepare. Meantime we made episode 99! And it's a cracker this week (if I do say so myself) with our pick of the weeks news, our own gaming highlights, Retro Tunes, Sex Talks About Apps, an awesome run on QuizUp, and loads of great feedback from the live chat room. The main thing we picked out this week was the clash of EA Access and PlayStation Now hitting the consumers, and opinion between us ended in Phil "doing a Microsoft".

Ep98 - Back from Summer break
We're back after a two week Summer break and it's like nothing has ever changed! Phil and Duncan go through what they've been playing, the top news items of the week, a totally new Retro Tunes, and the invention of a brand new segment live on the air; QuizUp! Ok, so the new segment isn't our own idea and we're totally using the App of the same name but here's the thing; we want you guys to challenge us on QuizUp to be played out live on the show. You can either play along live during the broadcast or answers the questions using the game's offline challenge mode. We'll be doing this each week and we need you to let us know by 12pm on the Saturday before the show so we can make sure both Phil and Duncan have you on their Friend list within the game. Tweet, email or facebook message us and we'll get back to you to sort it out. You can pick any topic you like, it doesn't have to be Video Games! If you want to get the game: Android - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.quizup.core iOS - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/quizup-biggest-trivia-game/id718421443?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 As always, here'e the list of stories we covered this week: Halo 3:ODST was the precursor test for Destiny - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-07-27-halo-3-odst-retrospective More Peggle anybody?
