Short Pause Weekly Rewind | Week of July 2nd, 2017
Boy, moving sucks, huh? I think it's tied with paying bills for things I despise the most. Anyway, welcome back to the Short Pause Weekly Rewind! We hope those of you in the US had a great 4th of July holiday! Without further adieu, I present this week's Short Pause gaming coverage for you to feast your eyes (and ears) upon!
Surprise! Episode 121 of the Short Pause Gaming Podcast Is Out Now!
A show wasn't initially planned for this week -- being a holiday week and whatnot -- but Ben, Bender, and a returning Frankie decided to celebrate America with their favorite activity - talking about video games into some microphones! Get comfortable and listen to the guys discuss the latest releases, the SNES Classic, Mass Effect: Andromeda's lack of single player DLC, and much, much more! The audio version can be found on our iTunes, Soundcloud, Google Play, TuneIn Radio, and Stitcher channels as well.
Tuesday (Thursday!) Night Indie Spotlight #71 – Speedrunners
Ben fired up Speedrunners on this this week’s episode of the Tuesday Night Indie Spotlight (on a Thursday). Watch Ben dash through explosions and madness in this challenging running title from DoubleDutch Games. It's available now on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $14.99.
Brent Combos His Way Through Some Implosion: Never Lose Hope!
Brent fired up Implosion: Never Lose Hope on the Nintendo Switch late Thursday night. Implosion looks to be inspired by the combat mechanics of a Platinum Games title. Watch as Brent slashes his way through zombies and monsters while trying to chase down an elusive S rank! Implosion: Never Lose Hope is available now on the Nintendo Switch for $11.99, or on iOS and Android for $9.99.
NLG Sits Down With Rick Lagnese From Kingdom Come: Deliverance Developer Warhorse Studios
Mike and the gang welcomed the US community manager for Warhorse Studios, Rick Lagnese, onto the show this past week to delve into some juicy details about the upcoming medieval RPG, Kingdom Come: Deliverance. If you have any interest in this game, this show provides some great insight into the state of the title, in addition to showcasing some B-Roll footage from E3. The Original Next Level Gaming Podcast goes live every Sunday at 9pm EST on their YouTube channel.
Play & Listen's JD Made A New Halo 5 Swat Montage
Our friend JD took to the Warzone with camcorder in-hand to assemble an epic highlight reel of his impressive Halo 5 skills. While he obviously isn't in the same league as Brent or Frankie when it comes to FPS skills, it's clear JD knows his way around the game as he slays everyone in his path. Subscribe to his YouTube channel and check out the Play and Listen Gaming Podcast on iTunes or Soundcloud! Follow him on Twitter as well @PlayNListen as he tweets out when he's going live with Halo, or something else like The Witcher 3 or Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days.
Thanks once again for checking out not only our content from this past week, but those from our friends as well! We're excited to hop into Kingdom Come: Deliverance next February, and hearing Rick's enthusiasm as he happily shared some more details about the game has us even more hyped! This week on episode 122 of the Short Pause Gaming Podcast, we'll be discussing our various gaming experiences throughout the year so far as we do our mid-year check-in. If you have a favorite game (or on the flip side, a game that was poised for greatness but let you down like LeBron and the Cavs let Cleveland down in the playoffs...HA-HA!) that you would like us to share on the show, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or hit us up on Twitter @TheShortPause! Have a great weekend and we'll see you back here next week!
