Cliff, Colby and Vinny take a deep dive into the first season of The Walking Dead from Telltale Games.
We have a lot of thoughts on the story and characters, some good (Vinny) and a lot bad (Cliff and Colby). But both good and bad, we run through the entire game, sharing our thoughts along the way.
Byte Me DLC Plays is a book club for video games! Play a game along with us every month, discuss it in our Discord and then we’ll make a podcast about it! In April, we are playing Metro 2033.
The Master Chief Collection is coming to PC (and Steam!), the OG version of Diablo is back and up on GOG, the Dead Cells DLC is coming out way sooner than we thought, Bioware is patching bugs and players are pissed, Devil May Cry 5 has a scene that is only censored on the PS4 and a couple of new Octopath games are in the pipeline.
Plus we answer a bunch of great questions (some that are about breakfast), talk cheap and free games, look at a new Small Bites and throw Spiro in Troll Corner.
It’s another great week in podcastland! We talk about a fun writer reveal for Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, Days Gone effectively has two full length movies stuffed inside of it, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition might actually be a thing, Friday the 13th: The Game: The Switch Edition: Plus DLC is a thing (although we still aren’t sure how), if you aren’t playing Apex Legends or Fortnite what are you actually playing, Anthem is not very stable on the PS4 and RIP PS Vita.
We also answer some great questions, talk Girl Scout cookies and go over a TON of cheap and free games.
It seems like it’s been forever since the entire Byte Me Podcast team has all been in the same room together and so we let this one take as long as it needed to!
We talked about the Pokemon Sword and Shield announcement, the new Detective Pikachu trailer, Dead Cells is getting free DLC this year, Kingdom Hearts is getting a board game, Anthem has a pretty solid 90 day plan, Reggie Fils-Aime is retiring (and being replaced by Bowser), Chex Quest HD has a new trailer, and Xbox games might be coming to both Windows 10 and the Switch!
We answered some questions (and talked a lot about reviews), talked about a ton of cheap and free games, and even did a Small Bit and Troll Corner!
Cliff was out having fun in the Florida sun in WDW and forgot to post this episode in the timely manner to which you have become accustomed. Please forgive him. 🙂
Dylan and Adam held down the fort in Seattle, talking about free copies of AC: Odyssey showing up in Uplay for people who played it via Google Stream, Crackdown 3 isn’t quite living up to people’s expectations, the Anthem Day One patch is huge (but helps with load times), Skull & Bones is getting a TV show (before it even has a release date) and an unlicensed Fortnite Festival gets shuts down after Epic sues them.
Sadly we were without Adam again this week (but he should be back next week, just in time for Cliff to leave.) On the plus side, Cliff played enough games last week to make up for Dylan and Adam.
There was a TON of news to talk about this week.
Just before we started recording, Activision-Blizzard announced they were laying off roughly 8% of their workforce, or 775 employees. Apex Legends his the 25 million player mark and announces both the start of their first season and a Valentine’s Day based event, Fortnite will let you merge accounts now, the CEO of Hi-Rez calls out Sony and tells them to stop playing favorites and give everyone (including Paladins) cross play, Crackdown 3 won’t let you play with your friends in the competitive multiplayer at launch, some former Telltale alums are creating a new studio with some cool sounding ideas, Playstation has a new boss, AC: Odyssey is getting a new game plus, Beat Saber players are a lot faster than Valve was giving them credit for and Capcom dumped a ton of music on Spotify.
We answered some great questions from Vinny, JoeColeslaw and Eddie and don’t forget to grab Thimbleweed Park when it goes free on the Epic Store later this month!
Love retro games? Do you wish you had your own arcade, or love the idea of setting up a Raspberry Pi so you can play your favorite C64, Atari, NES or SNES games? Then this podcast might be for you!
Does that sounds like gibberish, but you love Byte Me Podcast? Then this podcast might also be for you!
Either way, come hang out with Cliff, Dylan and Hans (remember him from Episode 42?) and listen to us reminisce about a time before Dylan was born!
We kick of this monthly(ish) feature talking about ROM sites getting sued by Nintendo, how ROM sites are important for video game preservation and how you can get a 3/4 scale arcade game in your house from Walmart! We also chat about our earliest video game experiences and some of our favorite games from the good old days!
