    019 - The Outer Worlds

    Welcome to Xbox Game Passengers.

    Every other Wednesday, host Derek and a guest will dissect and discuss just one game available on Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass service, which was chosen for them completely at random.

    Whether it’s a magical or a horrible experience, they’ll force themselves through it, share their thoughts, and let you know whether or not the game is worth your time! At the end of each episode, they’ll also randomly select the game for the following show.

    This episode, Dougie returns to chat about one of Derek’s most anticipated (and surprise — favourite) games of 2019, The Outer Worlds. It’s pretty much the best Fallout game that we’ve had in years, and brings some cool and original ideas to the table as well.

    Lost in transit while on a colonist ship bound for the furthest edge of the galaxy, you awake decades later only to find yourself in the midst of a deep conspiracy threatening to destroy the Halcyon colony. As you explore the furthest reaches of space and encounter various factions, all vying for power, the character you decide to become will determine how this player-driven story unfolds. In the corporate equation for the colony, you are the unplanned variable.

    We’ve had a blast making Xbox Game Passengers so far, and we really hope that you’re enjoying it too! If you have any feedback for us, we’d love to hear it at derek@geekscape.net. Anything you listeners can do to help spread the word about the podcast would be immensely appreciated — from sharing it on social media like Facebook or Twitter, to leaving us five stars (or even a review) on Apple Podcasts, to sending it to a single friend, it can all make a massive difference! Thanks again for coming along on this ride!

    Welcome to Xbox Game Passengers.

    Every other Wednesday, host Derek and a guest will dissect and discuss just one game available on Microsoft’s Game Pass service, which was chosen for them completely at random.

    Whether it’s a magical or a horrible experience, they’ll force themselves through it, share their thoughts, and let you know whether or not the game is worth your time! At the end of each episode, they’ll also randomly select the game for the following show.

    Mikaela returns after a long hiatus to chat about the quirky, spooky, and gorgeous adventure game, Oxenfree. Spoiler: she very clearly doesn’t like it and Derek spends the entire episode defending it.

    Oxenfree is a supernatural thriller about a group of friends who unwittingly open a ghostly rift. Play as Alex, a bright, rebellious teenager who brings her new stepbrother Jonas to an overnight party on an old military island. The night takes a terrifying turn when you unwittingly open a ghostly gate spawned from the island’s cryptic past. How you deal with these events, your peers, and the ominous creatures you’ve unleashed is up to you.

    YOU determine every aspect of Alex’s story while exploring Edwards Island, uncovering the base’s dark past, and changing the course of your friends’ lives.

    017 - Middle Earth: Shadow Of War

    Welcome to Xbox Game Passengers.

    Every other Wednesday, host Derek and a guest will dissect and discuss just one game available on Microsoft’s Game Pass service, which was chosen for them completely at random.

    Whether it’s a magical or a horrible experience, they’ll force themselves through it, share their thoughts, and let you know whether or not the game is worth your time! At the end of each episode, they’ll also randomly select the game for the following show, so you always know what’s coming up on the next adventure.

    This time around, newcomer (and host of the Super GG Radio gaming podcast) Joel joins Derek to chat about the well received Lord of the Rings basically Assassin’s Creed game, Middle Earth: Shadow of War. It really, really feels like Assassin’s Creed, and it also really doesn’t do a great job of getting you invested in its characters (especially if you haven’t played the first game in the series, Shadow of Mordor).

    Go behind enemy lines to forge your army, conquer Fortresses and dominate Mordor from within. Experience how the award winning Nemesis System creates unique personal stories with every enemy and follower, and confront the full power of the Dark Lord Sauron and his Ringwraiths in this epic new story of Middle-earth.

    In Middle-earth™: Shadow of War™, nothing will be forgotten.

    016 - Blair Witch

    016 - Blair Witch

    Welcome to Xbox Game Passengers.

    Every other Wednesday, host Derek and a guest will dissect and discuss just one game available on Microsoft’s Game Pass service, which was chosen for them completely at random.

    Whether it’s a magical or a horrible experience, they’ll force themselves through it, share their thoughts, and let you know whether or not the game is worth your time! At the end of each episode, they’ll also randomly select the game for the following show, so you always know what’s coming up on the next adventure.

    After John’s disappointing reaction (read: not being that scared) to Alien: Isolation in Episode 14, with the release of Bloober Team’s Blair Witch we simply had to break the rules, actually choose a game for the very first time, and bring him back to hopefully scare the s**t out of him.

    We think that breaking the rules was worth it. Listen to find out how things went!

    It’s 1996. A young boy disappears in the Black Hills Forest near Burkittsville, Maryland. As Ellis, a former police officer with a troubled past, you join the search. What starts as an ordinary investigation soon turns into an endless nightmare as you confront your fears and the Blair Witch, a mysterious force that haunts the woods…

    Welcome to Xbox Game Passengers.

    Every other Wednesday, host Derek and a guest dissect and discuss just one game available on Microsoft’s Game Pass service, which was chosen for them completely at random.

    Whether it’s a magical or a horrible experience, they’ll force themselves through it, share their thoughts, and let you know whether or not the game is worth your time! At the end of each episode, they’ll also randomly select the game for the following show.

    This episode, Geekscape Games alumni Courtney joins Derek to chat about lauded Metroidvania title, Hollow Knight. This is pretty much the episode that didn't want to happen, as Courntey's keyboard broke, then Derek lost his voice, then Courtney got sick, and we had to push this thing so many freaking times... but here it is!

    Forge your own path in Hollow Knight! An epic action adventure through a vast ruined kingdom of insects and heroes. Explore twisting caverns, battle tainted creatures and befriend bizarre bugs, all in a classic, hand-drawn 2D style.

    014 - Alien: Isolation

    014 - Alien: Isolation

    Welcome to Geekscape’s newest gaming podcast, Xbox Game Passengers.

    Every other Wednesday, host Derek and a guest will dissect and discuss just one game available on Microsoft’s Game Pass service, which was chosen for them completely at random.

    Whether it’s a magical or a horrible experience, they’ll force themselves through it, share their thoughts, and let you know whether or not the game is worth your time! At the end of each episode, they’ll also randomly select the game for the following show.

    This time around, John is back (yes, again) to discuss survival horror gem, Alien Isolation. John hates horror, and Derek has been trying to get him to play or watch numerous scary IPs over the near-decade that they've known each other. This is the first time that he's said yes.

    How did he react? Well, you know how to find out.

    Discover the true meaning of fear in Alien: Isolation, a survival horror set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. Fifteen years after the events of Alien™, Ellen Ripley’s daughter, Amanda enters a desperate battle for survival, on a mission to unravel the truth behind her mother's disappearance.

    As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien.

    Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.
