This week on the Eurogamer Newscast, we discuss the ongoing fallout from Microsoft and Sony's squabbling over Activision Blizzard and it's blockbuster franchise Call of Duty. If you've been living under a rock for the last six months, this all stems from Microsoft's intent to buy Activision for 68.7bn, which Sony isn't too happy about. Recently we'…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Masaaki Yuasa's Inu-Oh (2021). (trailer). Per William Bibbiani in The Wrap it is best described as a "feudal-Japanese hair-metal-demonic-curse serial-killer-political-tragedy rock-opera" anime movie. Go see it. Don't wait. In the news, Daisuke Jigen Voice Actor Kiyoshi Kobayashi Passes Away at 89, Crunchyroll buys R…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the humble vacuum cleaner.You definitely don't want to be in a situation where a shop vac would be the solution to your problem and you do not have a shop vac. Also these are "not a scam." In the news, necrobotic spiders are a thing, Amazon continues to rush toward being a full-on dystopian megacorb, and Netflix h…
 
Everything starts somewhere, and when the games industry began to form in the UK, back in the '80s, Gary Penn - my guest on the One-to-one podcast today - was there. A young adult passionate about games, he was propelled to micro-stardom, as he puts it, when he won a competition to find Britain's best gamer and ended up writing for Zzap!64 magazine…
 
Another Friday, another Weekly - the show where we recap the week on Eurogamer for you. Remember, premium supporters listen from Friday whereas everyone else listens from Monday. Today, we've got former Eurogamer writer Emma Kent back! And it turns out that since moving on from Eurogamer, she's rediscovered a passion for football. And she's thrown …
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider Vending Machines. In the news, HBO Max is being destroyed, two of the worst airlines in America are merging, noted fascist propagandist Alex Jones is going down in the trial over his harassment of the parents of mass shooting victims, and Girls' Generation is BACK!By Rym and Scott - The Front Row Crew
 
This week on the Eurogamer Newscast, it's all about Pokémon, following the franchise's huge announcement livestream that divulged fresh details on upcoming games Scarlet and Violet. The star of that show? Well, obviously it was Fidough - a freshly-baked dog Pokémon made of bread, whose popularity has now set the internet ablaze. But, dear viewer, w…

This week on the Eurogamer Newscast, we're discussing GTA maker Rockstar Games. An eye-catching report has discussed positive changes for employees and suggested a new company outlook could also be reflected in Grand Theft Auto 6, whenever it finally arrives. How important are these changes, and could the industry as a whole benefit? Or should we b…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we review Sonic X (2003). An anime TV series based on Sega's Sonic the Hedgehog video game series, adapted poorly by 4kids, it's not too bad. In the news, convention "leaks" are always funny, retroactive editing is becoming more and more common, someone leaked the entire 87 minute animatic of the (sadly) canceled Genndy Tarta…
 
Tonight on GeekNights we discuss Software as a Service (SaaS). This is one of the most lucrative, important, and enduring ways software is created and sold. In the news, a chess robot attacked a kid, Amazon buys One Medical as we edge ever closer to cyber-capitalist dystopia, Minecraft (rightly) bans blockchain (and nothing of value was lost), and …
 
Support Eurogamer here: https://www.eurogamer.net/subscribe It's a genuine pleasure to introduce one of the most well known faces of the UK games industry to you today, and more than that, someone who's helped bring among the biggest and most beloved game series to our shelves. I'm talking about the likes of The Witcher and Dark Souls - and they do…
 
Well look who we've got on Weekly today: it's Ian Higton all the way over from YouTube land, where everyone communicates in video. He's here to talk about virtual reality as often as he can, as well as tell us about changes on the Eurogamer video team. Aoife, if you didn't know, is off on maternity leave. Good luck, Aoife! Also joining me today is …
 
Square Enix has sullied its brand with Final Fantasy 7 NFTs, while Minecraft has taken a stand and said the technology has been banned on its servers. After so many companies have tried and failed to convince us that NFTs are a thing, why others persisting? Tom Phillips, Ed Nightingale, Victoria Kennedy and Liv Ngan discuss.…

This week on the Eurogamer Newscast it's all about Nintendo Switch, which is quietly having yet another brilliant year. The last few days have seen confirmation of a new Kirby game and a Bayonetta 3 release date (finally!), adding to a solid year so far and a strong end to 2022 which will also see the likes of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Splatoon 3, Ma…

Tonight on the GeekNights Book Club, we review and discuss Yoon Ha Lee's Ninefox Gambit. Far future calendar-fueled space battles abound, and we had a good time with it. It's book one of the Machineries of Empire series, and Rym is already well into the rest of it. We also announce that the next book club book will be Nnedi Okorafor’s Binti.…

Today on the Weekly show, we're talking Pride Week, as well as recapping the rest of Eurogamer for you. My guests wrote some of the wonderful pieces we've published as part of Pride Week. They are show newcomers Ed Nightingale, a news reporter on Eurogamer - who you'll recognise from the Newscast - and, all the way from tabletop land, Dicebreaker s…
 
(Apologies for this episode's recording quality.) I don't think David Gaider needs much of an introduction. He, affectionately, is mister Dragon Age. He was the one tasked with dreaming up the entire world and everything in it. We talk about it in this episode of One-to-one. BioWare's James Ohlen apparently gave Gaider a historic atlas and an "off …
 
It's Weekly time, which means strap in while we recap Eurogamer this week for you. All you have to do is press play. I know, I know, we're spoiling you - you don't even have to read the site any more (note: you definitely do). My guests today are Martin "the chief" Robinson and Chris "the brain" Tapsell, and we've got a lot to talk about. There's t…
 
PlayStation Plus is now available in the UK and mainland Europe, and we now know all of the games included in its catalogue at launch. It's enough to hit Sony's promises, certainly, though there are still odd omissions - while the lack of 60Hz for some PS1 games (for now) points to a rather rushed release. What can Sony do to build on this launch a…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider save games. Saving games, game states, save scumming, permadeath, passwords, batteries, statefulness, and more. In the news, The Stanley Cup finals are spicier than anticipated, PAX West badges are live (and not sold out), Street Fighter 6 is trying something interesting, and a strange attempt to take over Hasbro …

Starfield dominated Microsoft and Bethesda's E3 event, though praise has not been unanimous. It looked like a Bethesda RPG - to the surprise of people apparently expecting something else. Was it really as disappointing as some have said? Finally, with not-E3 done and dusted, we talk about 2023 - when both E3 and Summer Game Fest return as in-person…
 
Welcome to weekly, a show where we recap the week in games on Eurogamer for you, whisking through the reviews, news, features and videos that stood out. This week we look back at Summer Game Fest, the moment the Xbox/Bethesda conference wraps. We talk about what's been announced and what our highlights have been. And we're joined live from LA by Ma…

In the news, Made in Abyss is returning July 6, Inu-Oh is coming August 12 and has an English trailer, and Scott geekbites Osamu Tezuka's W3 (Wonder 3).By Rym and Scott - The Front Row Crew
 
Today it's all about cookbooks. More specifically: it's about cookbooks themed around games, which are all the rage these days. Do you have one? Maybe you've got the Destiny cookbook, or perhaps you've got the Fallout cookbook. The Final Fantasy 14 cookbook? Maybe you're saving yourself for the Halo cookbook in August. My guest today wrote all of t…
 
Summer Game Fest brought plenty of announcements though few genuine surprises. Eurogamer's news team shares their favourites, rates the night overall, and provides you with their best impressions of the Clickers from The Last of Us. Tom Phillips hosts, joined by Eurogamer news reporters Ed Nightingale and Victoria Kennedy.…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, it's a News Roundup! Specifically an Animation, Anime, Manga, and Comics News Roundup! The new Urusei Yatsura anime series has a trailer, TFAC has uninvited the NFT Lady after severe backlash from TCAF attendees and guests, Seven Seas' workers form a union that Seven Seas will not voluntarily recognize. Ni No Kuni: Cross Worl…
 
We keep coming back to puppetry as a running theme, and that's because, much to my surprise, Citizen Sleeper creator Gareth Damian Martin is a trained puppeteer. When they ran out of time to apply to art college, they chose puppetry instead, which would eventually take them into a career in theatre design, where they learned lots of valuable lesson…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we talk about trains. (Not the X train). Critically important in the era of radically accelerating climate change, trains are our future. In the news, Republicans are now the leading cause of death for kids in the US, Republicans have filibustered the gun bill from the previous mass shooting, and Twitter was fined for stealin…
 
Hirun Cryer first got his break in the games media writing guides over at USGamer. And guides content, dear listeners, is perhaps one of the most overlooked part of this entire job. Frequently responsible for the lion's share of a publication's traffic, despite rarely appearing on the homepage itself, video game guides are hugely important to the o…
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we discuss how games monetize. How can you make money making games? We've done at least three panels around this topic: Monetizing Games and Game Design (PAX East 2012), Money Making Games (MAGFest 2012), and more recently The Real Harm of Games (PAX East 2019). In the news, the Rangers are still in the playoffs, Sony's Plays…

It's the third episode of Weekly, our newish show where we recap the week on Eurogamer for you. We look at reviews and features, news and videos, and pull out some of the talking points from the week. Those alking points this week are the PlayStation Plus relaunch, which we don't dwell on because the Newscast tackles it in much more detail. But we …
 
Tonight on GeekNights, we consider scanners. Ancient devices used to convert paper documents and photos into files on computers, often using something called TWAIN. For many consumers, they have been replaced by "smart phones." In the news, NVIDIA releases open source GPU drivers, hell has frozen over, Russia appears to have lost custody of a relat…

Newscast is a weekly show in which the Eurogamer news team pick apart the major talking points in news that week. This week, we're talking about FIFA - or from next year, EA Sports FC. The breakup of FIFA and EA has sparked numerous headlines this week, as both sides have claimed the deal is good for them. But behind all the bluster, what do we thi…
