Video Games

A weekly podcast from, bringing you the latest chat about the video game world. New episodes every Wednesday.


It’s a warm welcome back to Chris White, who hasn’t been on the pod in weeks, and he’s got Little Nightmares 2 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to talk about, so it’s great to see him again. Adam has been playing The Falconeer and Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit, and that’s about it for the pod this week, after four big games get talked about, but not before Adam also tries to work out what Mario’s real name is.

It’s a shorter show this week, so get your questions in for the next few weeks. Do you have any burning next-gen Qs? Ask away!

This could be described as an emergency pod as Adam Cook and Chris Hyde get together, one on his mobile due to technical difficulties, but we wanted to get this pod to you so we could talk about FIFA 21 and Yakuza: Like A Dragon.

Elsewhere, Microsoft has revealed the 30 Optimised for Series X | S games for day one of the console’s launch, and Sony has broken cover to show off the new UI for the PS5. We catch up on listener questions this week, too, and reminisce a bit over a generation that’s coming to an end.

Adam Cook has played around four and a half hours of Watch Dogs Legion and is really impressed. Aside that, when not being a Watch Dog, he’s been inside Virtual Reality spending time with the Oculus Quest 2 which, again, he’s very impressed about. Chris Hyde has been playing Pikmin 3 Deluxe in a preview sense, while Adam Carroll is floored by how good Hades is.
Questions this week from you, the lovely listeners, range from voicemail messages to eruptions, and the latest goings on in the world of Geek Street. Send more questions, we love it! Will you be getting an Oculus Quest 2? Let us know via Twitter, we’re @GodisaGeek.

415. Xbox and Bethesda, Hades

Returning from the wilderness this week, it’s Adam Carroll and Nicola Ardron, and they’re joining up with Mick Fraser and Adam Cook to talk about Hades, Super Mario 3D All-Stars, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, Spiritfarer, and Spelunky 2.

But also, not much has happened except OH GOD Microsoft bought Zenimax, which includes Bethesda, and my my, there’s a lot to chat about because of that. Sexy voices are part of the listener correspondence, and Adam has rewritten everyone’s Twitter biographies for them, so that’s nice.

Chris White and Adam Cook have been playing a bit of the Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time demo, and have a lot of thoughts on it, while Chris Hyde must surely have been playing Super Mario 3D All-Stars, right?

The PS5 price date and launch lineup has been revealed, but some mixed messaging and last-gen info has given the trio plenty to chat about on this week’s show. But now we know everything, almost, so it’s time to see what way the lads are going to go on launch day.

We’re bringing news back, folks. After just one single listener asked, we buckled, so now we talk about games, game news, and listener correspondence, too.

First up this week, is Marvel’s Avengers, which the internet seems to hate but the three man crew of Mick Fraser, Adam Cook, and Chris Hyde might just disagree on that one. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 still continues to wow the pod-crew, and Mick has had a bit of a go on Spellbreak, too.

In the news, well, the biggest thing recently is surely… well, you know! The Xbox Series S and X have been fully revealed with dates, prices, and everything. Ubisoft went Forward with some more game reveals, too. Listener correspondence gets sexy and musical, so make of that what you will. It’s a packed pod fully of games and whimsy, get listening, and stop reading this text you mad person!

It’s your weekly dose of major enthusiasm, as Adam Cook and Chris Hyde are going gaga over what they’ve played this week. Both are loving the preview build of The Dark Pictures Anthology: Little Hope they played, while Adam is head over heels in love with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2… and, surprisingly, Wasteland 3 as well.

The two have a long overdue chat about Control’s AWE DLC and answer some questions that demand passionate answers and might divide the community. Which Chocolate tin is best?

Chris Hyde gets centre stage this week to talk about Spiritfarer (Adam interrupts), Risk of Rain 2 (Mick interrupts), and Fall Guys (Adam loses his mind), but there's also time to discuss Tony Hawk, some Batman game reveals, Wasteland 3, and a little bit of listener correspondence for good measure.

Chris has been sportsing it up with some UFC 4 and PGA Tour 2K21, which he and Adam Cook are both fans of. But he’s also been being super cool and edgy because he really likes the 2020 reboot of Battletoads.

Adam Carroll, Cook, and Mr White have all fallen head over heels in love with the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 demo and cannot wait for the full game, too.

A few listener questions this week, which are about beating up game characters and remaking old classics.
