It’s been a couple weeks, but the stats are out. Overwatch has over 7 million people playing already. Pretty awesome.

Tonight, it’s going to finally get one more.

I plan on diving in and having some fun, shooting people, dying repeatedly, exploding.

Here is fellow TGN Partner Tactical Koala who is teaching you how to fight cheese. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into this game tonight, finally.

Yo! Check This Out is on Patreon

So, this is something new, and something that a couple of people asked about.

“How do I give you guys money to do things?”

That answer was hard… “Watch our videos? Send us paypal? Give us Cookies? Pet Lando?”

We really didn’t know, but, with Patreon, we kind of got this semi figured out!

So, if you want to subscribe/donate/give us a hug, we have a Patreon now. Complete with some preliminary goals (lofty, but hey, why not shoot for the stars right?). There are even some basic rewards.

All of the rewards and goals may change or be modified depending on what our audience may want or wish we had as a reward.

Who knows! Maybe if we start making enough money, we can do this full time and making life grand for everyone.

This was really a thing we had thought about doing, but it wasn’t until Matt Hamm texted us last night and was like, “OMG DUDE HOW TO MAKE GIVE MONIES”.

So… this is a direct result of that. More to come!

Playstation Plus: Free Games June 2016

Share on Social

Of course, new month, new games.  Sony is pretty on point this month too, so Microsoft and Sony are crushing it this June.

Straight from the people at Sony… Holy shit Free NBA 2K16 and Gone Home on PS4?!:

First up, to help get everyone hyped for the NBA Finals, we’ve teamed up with 2K to add NBA 2K16 to the June lineup. One of the most critically acclaimed sports titles ever, NBA 2K16 has tons of great gameplay for everyone. With robust offline modes like MyCareer and MyGM, and deep online modes including MyTeam and MyLeague, there is an incredible amount of content to offer all types of gamers. So be the baller you always wanted to be and guide your team to the NBA Championship.

Next up is Gone Home: Console Edition. Gone Home is one of the most talked about titles from the last few years for good reason. While it’s an interesting exploration/adventure game, it’s the narrative of Gone Home that’s so remarkable. The game has a strong development team, including Steve Gaynor, who worked on a few titles in the BioShock series. The Fulbright Company (now just Fullbright) created an intimate and unique story that is well worth your time.

Full lineup:

  • NBA 2K16, PS4
  • Gone Home: Console Edition, PS4
  • Echochrome, PS3
  • Siren: Blood Curse (Episodes 1-12), PS3
  • God of War: Chains of Olympus, PS Vita
  • Little Deviants, PS Vita

I will dust off my Vita (that’s a lie, I have it charged and ready to go) for God of War and Little Deviants…

Doom: Behind the Music

Share on Social

Bradley and I are musicians, we play all ranges of pieces. From the Pop Punk of NOFX and Lagwagon that brought us together as friends nearly 22 years ago, to jazz, video game music, to metal, to more metal.

Man, that Metal is what gets us, intricate technical metal, loud chugga chugga metal, in your face thrash. We love it all.

So, when Doom came out earlier this month, we were excited for it and had a fun time. Hell I even reviewed it. The one thing that made us super excited beyond the gameplay and visuals. The music.

Mick Gordon. That name might not mean much of anything to you. To us, we fell in love with creative prowess when we started playing the new Killer Instinct.

He is the composer of the music we heard in Doom.  He lovingly sat back and treated the series with respect. He took the iconic sound of E1M1 and re-imagined it into a heavy new area.

He took some time out to see behind the scenes of how he came up with some of these tracks. Such a great watch. You should follow Mick on Youtube. Dude is awesome.

Killer Instinct – Gargos

Well, for a former podcast and current entertainment production company named after one of the titular character’s theme music. You would expect us to have MORE KI news more often.

But this is what we have right now. You probably have seen it, but this get’s Bradley and I’s panties all moist. Who the hell ISN’T excited for Gargos’ return to KI, with his teleport punching, wing flapping, death making awesomeness!

New month, new games.

If you haven’t played XCOM, you will enjoy the hell out of it. But Goat Simulator was fantastic on PC. The Crew was… a game? Super Meat Boy is frustratingly good.  What does Microsoft have to say? The following:
As usual, all games are available only for a limited time, as part of the ongoing Games with Gold program, so sign up now to get in on the action!

* Goat Simulator ($9.99 ERP): Available from June 1-30 on Xbox One

* The Crew ($29.99 ERP): Available from June 16-July 15 on Xbox One

* Super Meat Boy ($14.99 ERP): Available from June 1-15 on Xbox 360 and Xbox One

* XCOM Enemy Unknown ($39.99 ERP): Available from June 16-30 on Xbox 360 and Xbox One

On June 1, we’ve got the next-gen goat simulation technology of Goat Simulator! Crash through the world as a goat, do some epic tongue grabs and rack up points for destroying everything you see. You can even compete with your friends to see who can smash more things in style. Oh, did we mention you can be a goat?

Then, on June 16, take a wild ride with your friends in The Crew. A revolutionary, action-driving open-world game with a richly detailed recreation of the United States, The Crew offers an online driving experience like none other. Tackle challenges across the map, infiltrate underground racing teams and defeat dangerous criminal groups with Alex Taylor. There is no better time to take a test drive.

Also on June 1, put on your platforming shoes because Super Meat Boy is coming at you full force on both Xbox 360 and Xbox One. It has over 300 levels, epic boss fights and tons of unlockable secrets like retro warp zones. You can even play with characters from other famous indie games. So, there is only one question left to ask: Can you run, jump and wall jump through pure madness?

Last but certainly not least, get strategic and fight off aliens with XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Prepare your squad of custom-equipped troops with countless upgrades, abilities, and equipment, because XCOM: Enemy Unknown is the complete turn-based strategy package.

We’re excited to celebrate our birthday in June, and we’re even more excited to continually give away amazing free games to our Xbox Live Gold members. Check out the full details on our Games with Gold program, and make sure you get in on the action!

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided New Trailer

Share on Social

DXMD_2015_08_05_GC_screen_ONLINE_022

Square-Enix® and Eidos®-Montréal unveiled their Live Action Trailer for the much anticipatedDeus Ex: Mankind Divided™. This short immerses you in the world ofDeus Ex®, providing you with insight as to how things have changed since the events of Deus Ex: Human Revolution®, outlining the shift from the golden era of augmentation to the Mechanical Apartheid.

 

In 2027, mechanically-augmented people all over the world suffered from extreme psychotic delusions, lost control of themselves, and started attacking people. Millions died. Hundreds of thousands more were injured and maimed. In the wake of this global catastrophe, society has become divided by hatred, prejudice, and fear, with many countries now enacting harsh laws. The most notable of these laws is the highly controversial “Human Restoration Act”, aimed at isolating “Augs” and keeping them away from “Naturals”.

We have been waiting patiently for more gameplay and more in game goodness, however, we will take this trailer and press release for now, to fuel our fires for this game.

Just in case you don’t remember what the game is supposed to look like:

DXMD_2015_08_05_GC_screen_ONLINE_023 DXMD_2015_08_05_GC_screen_ONLINE_021 DXMD_2015_08_05_GC_screen_ONLINE_020

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will launch on August 23 for PlayStation®4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.

No Man's Sky

Well, when you have a small team of less than 20 ( I think 15 to be exact), you’re going to run into problems with your infinitely huge game that lets you explore everything in the everything-verse. It was slated for June 21st, but Hello Games has to push it back a few months. A few more months? We can live with that. Just don’t let it slip into oblivion, we’ve been waiting for this endless exploration game for too long now.
