The world inside is quite small, and we’ve been seeing a lot of that this year, so by means of not-really-good-enough-but-it’ll-have-to-do cure, Tim, Ken and James have recorded a discussion about games that take you on epic adventures for your listening pleasure. After starting on an awkwardly forced avoidance of Skyrim, the guys actual manage to turn this one into something of an actual discussion as opposed to just rattling off lists of stuff.

At least, they think they did. Some people were really tired. Blame it on cats. Actual cats, or the movie based off of the musical Cats. Your choice.

Everything is now happening at home. When people go shopping, somebody ends up getting punched because of toilet paper. Everything has been cancelled, and this very much includes gaming events. We expect that the industry may well be affected in other ways, too.

Hewso, Ken and Tim speculate what will happen to events such as E3 in the long term as a result of Covid’s influence on the world. They also touch on how this may affect next-gen and, true to style, both Microsoft and (somehow) Sony managed to drop huge information payloads between the time this episode was recorded, and when you’re reading this now.

They spend there time talking about just being in a game world, enjoying the atmosphere without the pressure of goals or vicious, teabagging teenage opposition.

Ever had one of those thoughts that goes against the masses? Liked a game no one else did? Disliked a popular system? Found yourself strangely attracted to Phil Spencer’s dad bod yet surprised by the fact no one else is? Well, we have those odds thoughts all the time, those opinions that go against the grain and in this episode of the Pixelcast we are taking the time to explore them. Matt hosts and is joined by Ken and Tim as they explore their deepest darkest thoughts on gaming that go against popular opinion. There are tears, disagreements and a lot of head-scratching, all in good fun of course.

It is time for another episode in the life of the PixelCast crew. In this episode of crazy time and space antics, the crew consisting of leader Tim and peons Adam and Ken cast their prophetic gazes into the future to talk all about next-gen, the systems, the games, the trends. As is tradition with any of these podcasts from this crew expect all speculation to be 100% incorrect when the new systems finally release.

This rather unorganised and technologically stunted episode of the PixelCast is none-the-less worth a listen. Why? Well because it is an episode about hope, hope for awesome games in 2020. Join Matt as he takes Adam and Tim through the year 2020 and what is coming that tickles their respective fancies. Of course, there were games played and guesses made and it the team almost managed to get through it all before Skype hit the skids. But don’t let that stop you from joining in the fun.

The first PixelCast of the year was actually recorded last year, right in the middle of holiday celebrations (which becomes more evident as the podcast goes on.) Tim hosts this slow dive into debauchery with Matt and Shaun coming along for the ride. The team talks about all their personal games of the year and a lot of garbage along the way. So join the fun and get ready for another great year of the P2 PixelCast with this great episode.

Ho, Ho, Ho boys and girls it is time once again to grab a glass of your favourite Christmas beverage, find a comfy chair and relax to the sounds of three esteemed games writers going insane while describing a fetid video game given to them by none other than Sadistic Santa. Yup, the cranky old bugger is back and he has brought his own brand of Christmas cheer to Jess, Paul and Ken, while Hewso takes the role of Santa’s elf and laughs at the chaos.

To make things a little less painful for the team, the crew also got around to talking about some of the games that came out of nowhere in 2019 and surprised us with how good they were. It is a fantastic episode and one that is sure to have you laughing at the crew’s collective pain.

Remember the days when you used to sit in front of the stereo, madly going through your music collections making mixed tapes for that special someone? You used to make sure there were songs on that tape you thought would enjoy but also represented who you were and what you were about. That special someone had to put on that tape and be entertained but also be impressed and perhaps a little attracted to you. Well, we have applied the same concept to video games, with Tim and Stephen going through a list of video games that are about them, yet aren’t so niche that they would scare off prospective suitors… I mean friends.

The Outer Worlds has captured Player 2 in recent times and we felt like it was only fair that we spoke about that obsession in the latest Player 2 PixelCast. Join Ken as he leads Matt and Chris through all things Obsidian, their past work, the future, the Microsoft buyout and how it has all lead to a game that many of us adore. Please note there are some mild spoilers in this one folks so make sure you give this one a skip if you haven’t started the game yet.
