    AustinMates: Episode 3 - Much Ado About VR

    In this episode our intrepid heroes discuss Quantum Break, the new Ratchet and Clank game (based on the movie, based on the game), as well as Gabriel's feelings about the Kingdom Hearts mobile games (spoiler: not a fan). We also talk about some Nintendo platform naming conventions you may have missed, this year's video game movie predictions, and a Deadwood drinking game no one could survive. 

    Will we see an upgraded Xbox at E3 this year? Should you play Telltale's The Wolf Among Us or Game of Thrones? And does virtual reality deliver on its promise to bring us a new way to play games, and truly immerse us all in virtual worlds? We don't know the answer to any of these questions, but we certainly have opinions!

    AustinMates Plays Milon's Secret Castle

    Last weekend the AustinMates made a terrible decision. A great, terrible decision. We decided to do our first Let's Play video and for some reason Jonathan and Jess let me pick Milon's Secret Castle. We had a lot of fun and I realized more than two decades after playing it for the first time that the game doesn't totally suck. In fact it's quite clever and enjoyable in a lot of ways. Give it a watch and let us know what you think! You can obviously comment on YouTube, but if you want to communicate in a slightly less toxic manner you can also email us at AustinMates@gmail.com.
