EPS 129: Rains Down in Africa

This week we take a bit of time to catch up with everyone, and by a ‘bit’ I mean nearly 30 min. We hear about some of Drew’s life-changing events in Mozambique, and Jeff’s adventures in Montreal. The tl;dr is that while Drew was eating Rice and beans and cabbage daily, Jeff was enjoying gourmet delights that most have only dreamed of. Then with that out of the way, we delve into the delights of E3. What do we hope to hear? What could Microsoft possibly do to save their line-up? Will we hear a release date for Ni No Kuni II? We’re cautiously optimistic, but we’re not holding our breath for anything too spectacular, call us old and jaded.. it’s Episode 129 of the LittleBigKast!

Episode 108: Jefftiny and Outbreak Prime

In this episode we combine forces to discuss important news in gaming. Mascot Glenn joins us and we let Jeff take us deep into the world of Destiny Rise of Iron and even deeper into understanding the secret “Outbreak Prime” quest. We ponder on what it might take for us to have enough time on our hands to put into a puzzle of that complexity. Kudos! to those who figured it out, AND to the dev team who made it. We also take a deeper look at the continued fan reaction and pending lawsuits surrounding the No Man’s Sky overhype. We wish Sean Murray the best, NMS is a fantastic game and we got what we expected.  If you’re spending $60 on a game…do a  little foot work to see if it’s going to be what you think it is. Simple as that.
