    AustinMates Episode 8 - So Butt Sniffin Pugs is a Thing


    We had a hell of a time at RTX and are back to tell you all about what we saw! The first thing you should know is, Butt Sniffin Puggs is an actual game. Gabe played a lot of Gigantic and is really excited for more. We also talk about Livelock, Song of the Deep, and RWBY: Grimm Eclipse amongs others. 

    Garett played Black Ice and got sucked into some developer's drug induced hallucination. Jess has finished Inside and is playing Red Dead Redemption and Adventures of Mana. On top of all this excitement, we debut our new segment, 'The Pitch'! It only got a BIT pornographic. Listen, like, subscribe, etc.

    AustinMates Episode 7 - In Which a Champion is Crowned

    Last episode we talked about everything we saw at E3 2016. This episode, we narrow it down to discuss which we actually think is the best, and crown our AustinMates winner for E3 2016 Game of the Show! Spoiler: It wasn't Death Stranding. 

    We also get back to what we're currently playing in this episode. Jess gives us a brief hint at what awaits in Playdead's "Inside", the follow up to "Limbo". Garett is still playing The Witcher, and still loving every minute of it. Jonathan has just started Adventures of Mana and it reminds me how bitter I am that we still haven't gotten a US release if Sieken Densetsu 3. So while I continue seething, you should settle in and enjoy our latest episode with a nice bottle of wine and that special someone. Or just on your drive to work. I don't really care how you listen, so long as you do.

    Included in this episode are tips to make pinatas more American, An argument about Terrence Howard, and perhaps our most surprising grades yet!

    AustinMates Episode 6 - Reintroducing Hideo Kojima and His Ego

    Have you been waiting with bated breath to find out if all our E3 predictions came true? Well this is NOT the episode for you! But, we do talk about all five of the E3 conferences and discuss pretty much every game revealed, minus the EA sports titles because...we just don't care. 

    We finally get to talk about Sony Bend's new game, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild! There was so much exciting news, and major changes from established franchises. This E3 was weird in a lot of ways, but a fantastic year for the show in others. Join us as we talk our way through it, and give our impressions of the games, as well as Sony's Playstation Experience 2016. 

    The Last Guardian, Days Gone, Breath of the Wild, God of War, Steep, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and the list just goes on. Come for the thoughtful insights, stay for the Kojima bashing!
