Platforms Episode 27 – New Yoik New Yoik

Josh Philpott and Dave Kozicki (with David ‘Beardy’ McVay)

Platforms is a gamers podcast by gamers. The podcast is recorded live on Ustream with chat interaction so come and join the fun as your host candidly discuss the latest in the gaming world. The podcast is uncensored, explicit, honest and very non ‘PC’. We kick off this week with the trailer for ‘Blazblue: Calamity Trigger’, this week’s feature review. Dave Kozicki is back and live in the studio with Josh and he brings news of ‘Crysis 2’ and ‘F.E.A.R. 3’ (or ‘F.3.A.R.’ as the promos would have it.)

News This Week: Original Xbox titles leaving Live, iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad getting a gaming network, Microsoft restructures it’s point system, Cliff Bleszinski on Jimmy Fallon this week (….this time we mean it), Josh talks about the new UFC game and the THQ event and Dave is back from New York with photos and news about ‘Crysis 2’ and ‘F.3.A.R.’ – We also watch the trailers for these two.

Coming Soon Titles: The Nintendo DSi XL, ‘Splinter Cell: Conviction’ and ‘Super Street Fighter IV’.

Review of the Week: This week, Josh and Dave review ‘Blazblue: Calamity Trigger’. A fun and highly detailed Street Fighter style fighting game. Not a lot new but good fun.

We finish the show off with an update on the Friday Night Games, last week we all played a rather disappointing multiplayer game of ‘Lost Planet 2 Beta’ – Listen to find out why.
