A Few Bits Ep. 79 - Street Fighter V Launch

Yo Internet Pals,

 

Lots of Street Fighter V talk on this week's episode. Our overall early impression of the game (when the servers work) and a little deeper look at the boys club stigma (specifically looking at the more scantily clad cast of female fighters) within the fighting game community. 

 

Also, Ryan tries to sell Cole on a free-to-play Star Wars game (you can keep your Clone Wars Chewbacca).

 

What we're playin':

  • Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes (iOS)
  • Street Fighter V (PS4)
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider (Xbox One)
  • Unraveled 

 

And even though Ryan hasn't played Destiny in a while, we manages to still slip in a bit of discussion (how does he do that?).

 

Love,

A Few Bits

2015 is just wrapping up and the Bit Brothers are putting it all into perspective with our farewell to 2015 episode. This of course means everyone's favorite debate for the 2015 game of the year.

Some of our 2015 nominees (in no particular order)

  • Batman: Arkham Knight
  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
  • Super Mario Maker
  • Rocket League
  • Destiny: The Taken King
  • Undertale

A pretty solid list for a pretty solid year in gaming.

Enjoy and Happy New Years!

Love,

A Few Bits

As of 4-2-12, A Few Bits podcast is officially a year old! (What did you get us?)

This past year has been a fun ride. We truly enjoy sharing some laughs and talking about gaming with you each week. A huge thank you to all the listeners that tune-in to our little show.

One of our favorite parts of getting on and recording each week, is the random pre-show conversations that we have. Sadly, since they usually have nothing to do with gaming, we cut them out of the final product. To celebrate a year of podcasting fun, we have put together a clip show of some of our favorite pre-podcast conversations. They are very random and I hope you all enjoy!

If you like these random conversations and would like us to include them into the show more frequently, let us know! Email us a afewbitspodcast@gmail.com.

Thank you all again! Looking forward to keeping this going as long as we can!

News: Lots of details have been leaked on Assassin's Creed 3. We discuss everything we know so far.

Also, there has been recent talk of Valve getting into the hardware market with a console known as the "Steam Box." We discuss what we know and where this console might fit into the gaming market.

What we've been playin': Dead Space, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (Demo), Q.U.B.E. (Demo), Super Crate Box (iOS), and Ace Combat: Assault Horizon. 

It's round 2 of our Super Wizard Championship! Jacob currently has a 2-1 lead over Ryan in this fight to the death of gaming knowledge supremacy (not sure if this sentence makes sense but it sounds epic). Will Ryan be able to gain some ground on our boy from the land of arches? Guess you'll just have to listen and find out. 

News:

  • Resident Evil 6 has been officially announced. 
  • Bioshock Infinite is going super hardcore with the newly announced 1999 Mode.
  • Diablo III Senior Producer, Steve Parker, announces departure from Blizzard. Also, some final gameplay changes nullify any chance for an early February release.
  • Evo 2012 games officially announced

If you missed our Spirited Speed Run to 2012, you can find the video at afewbits.com or twitch.tv/afewbits. Friend of the show Brian (from down the street) rung in the new year properly by attempting to beat all of Super Mario World in a 1hr 45min while intoxicated. It was a good time folks!

What we've been playin': Assassin's Creed: Revelations, NFL Blitz, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and Bastion

A Spirited Speed Run to 2012

Hello All!

Hope everyone out there is enjoying the holidays. Like we discussed on the last episode, the A Few Bits crew is doing a little something different as we welcome in 2012 (insert stupid end-of-the-world comment) with A Spirited Speed Run.

Tonight, our friend Brian (from down the street) plans to showcase his Super Mario World skills in a race against the clock. We are giving him from 10:15 PM (CST) to the stroke of midnight to beat every level in this classic platformer. If that wasn't hard enough, Brian will attempt this amazing feat while intoxicated on numerous festive spirits (he's gonna be real drunk folks).

You can find the livestream for the event on both Twitch.TV http://www.twitch.tv/afewbits and right here at AFewBits.com. The stream will begin at 10 PM (CST)

Can he do it? Don't know, but it's bound to be a good time regardless!

If you enjoy our crazy shenanigans tomorrow, you'll definitely want to check out our weekly podcast. You can download every episode a AFewBits.com or on iTunes.

Hope everyone enjoys the show!

Love,

A Few Bits

A Few Bits Ep. 23 - Michael Jordan Ed.

What we've been playin': Cole finally finishes Rage and the boys have a long discussion on their first week with Battlefield 3.

Hello All! Sorry for the delay on this week's episode. We wish we could spend everyday shootin the poop on video games, but sadly life has a way of ruining our dreams.

What we've been playin: Rage, League of Legends (of course), Battlefield 3 beta, NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, and FIFA 12

The boys have a long discussion on what they thought of the Battlefield 3 beta (Slug people, no vehicles, but still good times to be had).

We're also giving away a code to access the Uncharted 3's multiplayer early. (If you can decipher Cole's code that is).

Lastly, we discuss new details on multiplayer in Mass Effect 3. Is it necessary?

It's still a two man show with Cole still in the woods (possibly dead). Luckily, Jacob and Ryan found some new games to fill the void he left in their hearts.

There is no better way to beat-the-heat during these long summer months than to tackle some of the games you might have missed last year, or play some of the new "Summer of Arcade" titles. In this episode, Ryan takes a step back into memories of the future’s past in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, and Jacob pops his XBLA cherry with Bastion.

We also talk about all the fighting game news to come out of ComicCon (Freddy Krueger and a Tranny surprise?!?), and the latest about the highly anticipated MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Well, the massive spectacle that is E3 has come and gone. All that is left is to dissect the massive amounts of news from the big event. 

Luckily, A Few Bits has got you covered!

Join Ryan, Jacob, and Cole as we do our best to discuss all the conferences, demos, games, and awkward moments (Kobe really can't play NBA 2K12) from this year's E3.

Wii U, PS Vita (it means life), Halo 4, and a ton more on our most anticipated games!

This is our most epic episode yet, so we hope you enjoy!

Lastly, why the hell is Jerry Rice doing a pet football game? What do pets have to do with football? We hondestly don't know, but maybe you can figure it out.

Well, it only took two weeks this time, but A Few Bits is back once again! All the nerdy hijinks one could ask for in a neat little podcast package. 

What we've been playin: Ryan and Cole share some of their whacky experiences with blue and orange rings in "Portal 2". Jacob (A Few Bits PC gaming guru) talks about some elves and other awesome fantasy creatures in "The Witcher 2". 

Oh yeah, and E3 is tomorrow if you didn't know. The boys take some time to talk about all of the rumors, predictions, and expectations of this monster event. Will Project Cafe revive our Nintendo love? What NGP details can we expect? Is Microsoft doomed to have the worst showing? Will Bungie make a secret showing? New Halo reboot perhaps? Did Cole say "revolved" or "evolved"? Should I stop posting questions on our discussion topics? Definitely, so just check out the show please!

Also, check in later this week (hopefully Wednesday) as we look to post a show following the big event!

Hello All!

After a three week hiatus, A Few Bits is back and better than ever!

Jacob and Ryan share their exciting life changes over the past few weeks (they really do grow up so fast).

We discuss the games we've been playin: Portal 2, Mortal Kombat, and backlog action with Borderlands. 

We also take the time to dissect this whole PSN debacle (what a freakin' mess!).

It is safe to say that we Cheadled the poop out of this show (it will make sense when you listen).

It's only our second episode and we have already lost a co-host. Luckily friend of the show and retro gaming expert, Brian Birkholz, rode his Huffy over to help us while Jacob is in the middle of his big move. 

In this episode we discuss some old 16-bit games, our adventure at the Galloping Ghost Arcade, and some Sword & Sworcery.

We also talk about Mortal Kombat, Duke Nukem, and Twisted Metal and how these classic franchises are making their comeback in 2011.

And with our resident (meaning from down the road) Wii expert on the show, we couldn't help be talk about the recently leaked info on Nintendo's "Project Cafe".
