Latest Podcast: Episode 175 – Inside The Next-Gen
Episode 172 – It’s About Time
Duration: 01:12:20 • Size: 33.12 MB

In true Drop Bear Gaming form Lucas and Matt start this episode discussing news that dropped literally one day after they recorded the last episode. The Microsoft acquisition of Bethesda. The guys also talked about the initial previews of the Xbox Series X and how it may not need launch exclusives to succeed after all. Sprinkled across the episode are reviews of the new The Outer Worlds DLC “Peril On Gorgon”, Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time, and Mafia Definitive Edition. We hope you enjoy the show! Read more…

Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time (PS4)
It's been 22 years since the last proper Crash game and Toys For Bob have taken the reins from Naughty Dog with the passion and love that true Crash fans deserve. It's an absolute treasure and a fitting way to see this Gen's consoles out.
Mafia: Definitive Edition (PS4)
Hangar 13 have nailed it with this remake of the 2002 classic. This is probably one of the best quality remasters we have seen with it's fresh modern graphics, improved controls, and all new voice acting, while remaining faithful to the original. Absolutely recommended.

Xbox One Lost The Battle, Has Playstation 4 Won The War?

Over the past twenty four hours or so, I have seen increasing numbers of tweets, Facebook updates, memes and articles showing a growth spurt in supporting the Playstation 4 being the next gen console of choice – even from folks I have  known to be the Xbox faithful’s in my inner gaming circle.  While I am all for the preferential choice of platforms, and have tried to maintain neutrality between the two choices, I am wondering if I will be the only one with an Xbox One.

Xbox One And A New Generation

It’s 4:30am and Microsoft’s reveal of their new system “Xbox One” finished not too long ago. While I sit here letting the tidal wave that is Twitter flood in front of my eyes I find myself still just as clueless about how the next generation is going to play out as I was when I went to bed last night.

EBX 2012

The second annual EB Expo came and went over the weekend just past and it most definitely lived up to EB Games’ hype about being bigger and better than the inaugural show last year. With attendance counting in the thousands higher than last year and the duration increased to three days instead of just two it was definitely a lot busier, and the atmosphere from the punters had the venue buzzing with excitement throughout the entire event.

The Outer Worlds: Peril On Gorgon (PS4)
More content for an already great game. Although this DLC doesn't add much in the way of new features it does add a good sized area to explore, a bunch of new dialogue, and a fun new side quest during it's 6ish hour playtime.

Lucas
The Podfather/Convo Controller
Super salesman by day, Batdad and Gamersutra by night. As a self-confessed technology pacifist, he prefers to sit on the console-war fence and play games on his PC.
Matt
PlayStation Fanboy/Motormouth
Electrician by trade and yet also highly skilled at finding time to game around work and family commitments. A PlayStation fanboy with a platinum count and obvious podcast bias to prove it. Thinks DC is clearly superior to Marvel. Has been known to rant.
