Progress Bar Podcast: Episode 18


What We Talk About

We discuss the two remakes of the third generation of pokemon games, Ruby and Sapphire. The team flashes back to 2003 and reminisces their time with the game and what they were doing in their lives.
A teaser trailer for “Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire” have been released detailing a new world and new adventure but it should be the same great adventure from 2003
In more news Nintendo the company has rebuffed requests from gay gamers to simulate same-sex weddings in the upcoming 3DS game “Tomodachi Life”, stating “that they never intended to make any form of social commentary”. Nintendo declined, saying, “The relationship options in the game represent a playful alternative world rather than a real-life simulation”.
Shifting a gear a little, DriveClub will have a ‘free’ edition of the game coming to PS+ subscribers. There was also a “release date announced” (again) putting the game almost 1 year behind the first announced release date.
Players who want to upgrade from the free PlayStation Plus edition of the game to the full version will only be accessible while their PS Plus subscription is active.
The Free edition includes:
– One Location (India),
– 11 tracks,
– 10 cars
– Access to all the game modes.
PS+ edition upgrade one-time $49.99, $10 cheaper than the full game’s $59.99 price tag. (All five locations, 55 tracks, 50 cars and all 50 tour events) as long as your PS+ sub stays active. Eddie’s concern was saving $10 but losing your access if your PS+ sub lapses.

We Play games Too

Brendan has played nothing because of life commitments but continues to speculate his experience in Tomodachi life creating a soap drama using the Mii characters.
Kochie dove headfirst into Dark Souls 2 now that it has released on PC. Enjoying the 60fps “gameplay with Barry” (Shooting with the Ballista was fun) and other player characters. Exploring the world of Drangleic has been quite enjoyable.
