VG247’s Definitely Not a Podcast Video Chat #2 – Cloud gaming, game movies, Kojima’s Xbox game, and more

As per last week, we are back once again to have a little chat about the week that was in video games. We still don’t have this setup as a “proper” podcast, but a podcast is what this essentially is. Look out for a full podcast launch in the near future, where hopefully the show will have an actual name, plus musical jingles and things to make you think we’re a professional outlet and not a bunch of people in casual clothes broadcasting out of bedrooms.

Watch on YouTube

But, this is not that podcast. This is myself, Alex, Sherif, and Dorrani talking about what we’ve been playing and a few hot topics of the moment in the games industry.

Listen for thoughts on Chivalry 2, again, which Sherif has been having a blast with, and an impromptu rundown of almost every video game movie ever made – what is better out of Sonic the Hedgehog and Detective Pikachu? There’s also a nostalgic look back at the online shooters we all used to play, some of us having to stretch a lot further into the past than others – not naming any names. And we try to wrap things up with a think about what Kojima’s rumored Xbox exclusive game is going to be, and only go slightly off topic.

I won’t ruin it, but Alex also brings up a “classic” game from his childhood, that isn’t about the famous TV alien, Alf. He’s also shocked at how hard golf is in real life.

We’re experimenting a bit with the format, but what do you think? Would you like this in audio form every week? Do you have any suggestions for the podcast’s name? Let us know in the comments.
