Short Pause Weekly Rewind | Week of April 30th, 2017
May is upon us (we’re just over a month away from E3!), and the crew here at Short Pause is hard at work bringing you fine readers some delicious new content. This past week was a busy one, as we found ourselves streaming all sorts of great games. So strap in, order a pizza or two, and feast your eyes and ears on the video content you may have missed from us this past week!
Episode 114 of the Short Pause Gaming Podcast
The whole gang is reunited for the first time in several weeks! Join us as we talk new releases, what we've been playing, Call of Duty: WW2 trailer impressions, Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite's story and gameplay trailers, and much more!
Playing By The Hyrules: Episode 5 - Rito Village
Bender and Frankie sit down with their fellow Hylian Champion — JD, from the Play and Listen Gaming Podcast — to discuss their time in Rito Village, as they resisted the urge to dropkick Revali into oblivion and tackled the Divine Beast known as Vah Meadow. This is a spoilercast based on our experiences with Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, so please listen at your own discretion!
Short Pause Let's Play: Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition
The downside to this post going up Friday afternoon is the possibility of a Friday night stream. Welp, Brent, Ben, and Bender — along with Play and Listen’s JD — booted up Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Friday night and hilarious shenanigans ensued. Check out the archive of the stream below and, if you're following us on Twitter (@TheShortPause), our friend codes can be found for those looking to own Bender at his own game! Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Edition is available now for $59.99 on the Nintendo Switch.
Brent Plays Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3
Brent's had his head down in the grass for the past week as he's been making his way through Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3. You can read his complete thoughts about the game in his upcoming review (to be posted soon!), and you can see it in action for yourself below! Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is available now on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 for $59.99
Tuesday Night Indie Spotlight #63 - Super Rude Bear Resurrection
Being the fearless chap he is, Ben backs down from no challenge. This week was no exception, as he stepped up to the plate and hopped into the latest brutally difficult 2D platformer to hit the scene, this one from developer Alex Rose Games. Watch Ben die again and again and again and again, as he slowly slips into madness in this latest episode of the Tuesday Night Indie Spotlight! Super Rude Bear Resurrection is available on PS4 and PC for $14.99.
Midnight Launch Party - Prey
Frankie excitedly booted up Prey, from the talented team at Arkane Studios, for a midnight stream this past week. You can check out his misadventures aboard the Talos 1 below. If you're intrigued by what you see, Prey is available now on PC, PS4, and XB1 for $59.99. You can also check out the First Hour Demo on your console of choice to get some hands on time with the title if you remain on the fence.
NLG's Modzoo is Making Headway in Halo Wars 2!
Jason, aka Modzoo from the Original Next Level Gaming crew, continued to fight the good fight in Halo Wars 2 this week. He's nearing the end of the game as he makes his way through the “Under the Dark” mission in the video below! NLG also dug into the Prey demo and some Mario Kart 8 Deluxe action on the Switch this week, which you can find archived on their YouTube page. You can tune into the Original Next Level Gaming Podcast on Sunday nights at 9pm EST.
Play and Listen Has You Covered on the “Parent's Love Side Quest” in Breath of the Wild!
JD, the ever vigilant Hylian wanderer himself, brings you a video guide on how to complete this sidequest you may have missed during your time in Tarrey Town. The latest episode of the Play and Listen Gaming Podcast is available now on iTunes and SoundCloud as well, as JD was joined by CrazyJuan from the Original Next Level Gaming crew to share and discuss some more of their favorite gaming tunes from Halo Wars 2 to L.A. Noire. You can also catch JD streaming on Twitch now (twitch.tv/playandlisten), so give our great friend a sub and show him some love (and maybe tag and bag him in some Halo 5 multiplayer for your pal, Frankie!).
