Welcome to the thirteenth episode of Character Unlock, unlucky for some.
With little going on in the world of video games at the moment, hosts John Miller and Andrew Brooker have opted to spend just over an hour chatting about stuff that is about to happen with the imminent release of the Nintendo Switch and the recently announced Xbox Game Pass, an Access style rental service for Microsoft’s console, before digging into an extended What We’ve Been Playing.
Having definitely found his comfort zone recently, John continues the tales of his journeys with Mass Effect and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege; whilst Brooker waxes lyrical about his short-lived fun times with full price PlayStation VR demo VR Worlds and reviews the first couple of hours of Horizon: Zero Dawn.
To top things off this week, John goes into detail about the time he spent with the HTC Vive, a Steam based Virtual Reality headset. Hear about the games he was playing and enjoying while Brooker grills him about the tech.
Join us in a couple of weeks with first-time guest Jack Woodcock, who’ll be giving us a detailed rundown on Nintendo’s latest console and its games. Until then, find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up with what we’re up to.
What better way to spend your time than with the consoles that you love so much and the games that make you feel good about yourself? How about spending a couple of hours talking about those things with your mates? Welcome to this week’s Character Unlock podcast.
Fresh off the back of the last jam packed episode, hosts John Miller and Andrew Brooker spend a bit of time digging into the news from the last week or so. From Call of Duty going back to its roots and what that might mean for the series, to the insanity that is selling public access tickets for E3; the lads kill a bit of time wondering about the point of it all before heading to a marathon session talking about the games they’ve been playing.
As John continues his mission to finish the Mass Effect series for the 132nd time in preparation for the new game, Brooker has to justify spending a small fortune on a PlayStation VR completely on a whim by playing almost everything made for the thing in a very short space of time. What was worth playing? What made him so sick that it completely ruined his day? All that and more as a featureless episode ends with the guys talking nonsense for more than may be healthy as the bitter pair let everything off their chest.
Come back and join us for more of the same in the next episode in a couple of weeks. If you want more from us in the mean time, come find us on Twitter, on Facebook, and guesting on the recent Resident Evil based Failed Critics film podcast.
