Back to the PS4 this week as Xavier takes on a single player two person game. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a game with a unique control scheme that sees the player control two characters at the same time. With their father sick, the brothers must venture out to get the cure. Hopefully a nice and gentle stream for a Friday night.
Testing stuff on the stream is rarely a good idea, so that’s exactly what’s happening tonight as TK and Xavier go head to head in Armello, thus testing if PC Multiplayer streaming can work with the setup. Hopefully a couple of games can be got in, depending on how long things take, with Xavier in the main studio and TK remoting in from his realm upstairs. Isn’t online play wonderful?
Xavier is feeling under the weather so TK has found a nice little fantasy game for him to play tonight, so he can have a chill and an adventure. Pryzm: Chapter One – The Dark Unicorn on the PS2. What will Xavier make of it in his currently somewhat ill ways? Will it kick his (admittedly more frail and usual) ass, or will he become the master of the Dark Unicorn? Tune in to find out.
With Xavier still having to actually work in the office this Wednesday, Hedgie once again hijacks his timeslot to play some more retro games. Going to the PS2 this week, Hedgie picks a Destruction Derby style game with the original Flat Out. Will he do well, or will he be a smoking wreck on the side of the track? Tune in to find out.
As it’s still Sonic Year, it’s time for Xavier to play a game he’s not yet had time to play… Sonic Mania. TK went and got the disc version, so it’s Sonic Mania Plus on offer today. Xavier favours the 3D Sonic games, so how well will he do with the latest 2D offering from the Sonic universe? And will TK get to play as Tails? Tune in to find out.
Following on the sports theme from the Wednesday stream, this week sees Xavier tackle the PS2 classic “Disney Extreme Skate Adventure”. Based on the Tony Hawks engine, this game will see Xavier do on a skateboard what Hedgie attempted on the slopes. The question is, has the recently(ish) re-released classic Tony Hawks games help Xavier on his way, or will the Disney experience overwhelm him into dismal failure? Watch the stream to find out…
With Xavier having to actually work in the office this Wednesday, Hedgie once again hijacks his timeslot to play some more retro games. Once again Hedgie selects a PS3 game, this time opting for the alpine thrill of SSX, the modern version of the classic snowboarding series. It’s been a long time since he’s played a game in the SSX collection, so expect lots of re-learning how to play. Will he do well? Watch this space to find out.
Friday Night Fights get squishy and a bit gore-filled as Xavier and TK take on Mortal Kombat. A game series that saw its start in the early 90’s and carries on until the present day. This version of the game is known as MK9, or the Mortal Kombat 2011 reboot, and the story mode picks up from the end of Armageddon, ignores MK vs DC, and reboots the series quite nicely. This allows for the events of the first 3 games to be played out again, but this time with a twist. But our fighting duo are ignoring all the nice story and heading straight into some vs fighting instead. And there may or may not be a couple of other surprises thrown in for good measure.
With Xavier having to actually work in the office this Wednesday, Hedgie once again hijacks his timeslot to play some more retro games. The PS3 takes the stage this time as the Mad Hog takes to the road(ish) in MotorStorm Apocalypse. A thrilling drive around the post apocalyptic landscapes – much like Hedgie’s bedroom, so he’ll feel right at home. Will he win all his races and become king of the wastelands – or will he face the crushing defeats at the hands of the AI? Only way to find out is to tune in and enjoy.
Tune in for some more Stream and Chill, as Xavier attempts to complete the tactical RPG game that is Alpha Protocol. This is on PC, on normal mode, fully expecting crashes, glitches and crabwalking.
