Episode 61 – The One With The Swears

April 11, 2014 6:01 pm

This week the crew talked about a bunch of games including Pro Evolution Soccer 14, Titanfall, Final Fantasy X HD, Infamous Second Son’s Paper Trail DLC and Borderlands 2 coming to the Vita then they ran out of topics. This led to an impromptu google topic search, leading to intense discussion about EB Games, the Wii U and much more. The episode ends after a sad announcement from Susie, but stay tuned after the outro music for the sweary bit (profanity/laughter warning).

Review – Dark Souls II

Edan | April 4, 2014 3:41 pm

Edan

Five minutes after I made my character and was released into the open world of Dark Souls II I was slain by an overpowered giant ogre. A trophy popped in the top corner of the screen called ‘This is Dark Souls’. It was a friendly reminder that over the next 50-plus hours, Death and I would become fairly close friends as I would meet my demise over and over again.

Review – South Park: The Stick Of Truth

Edan | March 25, 2014 5:13 pm

Edan

South Park is definitely not for everyone. In the 17 years it has been on the air it has probably offended more people than any other TV show. Its crude humour ranges from Tom Cruise being locked in a closet and not wanting to come out to Kanye West being a gay fish and everything in between. It is a show that doesn’t pull any punches and yet still has such a following that after 17 seasons, it’s still going strong. After 4 long years in development Obsidian have delivered an excellent game that pays homage to the source material while delivering something fresh that could be considered an entire season of the show wrapped into a nice 14-hour RPG.

March 15, 2014 4:49 pm

Matt and Lucas are holding the fort on this episode while Susie is still on holiday, and surprisingly enough Lucas has been playing some games! They discuss Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Velocity Ultra, Surge Deluxe, Move The Box, and the recent announcement of Arkham Knight. The guys then have a bit of a spoiler-filled chat about “Left Behind” the new single player DLC for The Last Of Us, but don’t worry about it catching you by surprise, there is plenty of warning before the spoilers starts. We hope you enjoy the show!

Review – Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

Matt | March 6, 2014 6:01 pm

Matt

Throughout the 28-year history of the Castlevania franchise the player has always been tasked with defeating Dracula. Now with the latest game in the series, developer MercurySteam has decided that it’s time for a change. They have returned to complete their Lords of Shadow series with the first ever Castlevania game to have you play as the Prince of Darkness himself, and not only that, it’s also the first to be set in modern times.

Review – Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

Matt | January 31, 2014 1:25 pm

Matt

In the last couple of years of the PS3 and Xbox 360, for better or worse, HD remakes were storming the gaming marketplace. It wasn’t the biggest leap of the imagination to think that the same trend would continue on in the new generation of systems, and lo and behold it has. In the current dry spell of game releases for the PS4 and Xbox One veteran publishers Square Enix have given us Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition.

Episode 57 – Argument Now!

January 16, 2014 3:49 pm

It’s the first Drop Bear Gaming podcast episode of 2014 and it is also the Susie birthday episode! The show begins with some friendly catching up, then Matt breaks down why he thinks Knack is one of the most under-rated games on the new generation of consoles. What follows is perhaps one of the biggest arguments we have had on the show so far when the topic of Sony’s new gaming streaming service PlayStation Now is brought up. Have a listen, pick a side, and then let us know what you think in the comments below.

2013 – Reflections By A Drop Bear

Matt | December 31, 2013 5:28 pm

Matt

It’s December 31st once again, and of course that means it’s time to look back on the year. 2013 has been a huge year for gaming in Australia and given that it is about to end, I thought I’d do some reminiscing about the more influential and controversial moments of the year.
