    Definitely Not An E3 Podcast

    Definitely Not An E3 Podcast

    Shock news!!  We've already beaten last year's podcast count... WHOOP!  Matt and Ali are back to discuss their favourite pieces from the recent Summer Games Fest, PlayStation, Xbox and Ubisoft showcases - all of which contained something interesting to talk about.  Did you watch the events from what was definitely not an E3 as well?  If not, just assume these two know what they're talking about and enjoy.

    Keigh-3?

    Keigh-3?

    It's been a couple of years since an E3 event, and probably even longer since we've recorded what we thought of them, but for E3 2022 we've made an effort.  Of course, it's not really about E3 because everyone decided they'd had enough of that and have either done their own livestream, or created an entirely new entity that's basically just the same with a different name.  There's not enough time to cover everything that was announced, revealed, leaked or teased, so we'll just focus in on what we found the most interesting.
    Ali and Matt roped in the ever opinionated Stuart Cullen to discuss what they thought about:
    This year's hardware and publisher showcases,
    Geoff's one man show - Summer Games Fest v2.0,
    Who was there, who wasn't, and if E3 2022 was a draw for gamers
    Whether Xbox actually brought anything of interest to the table,
    If it's finally dead as a trade show,
    and a whole heap of other stuff we can't remember because it's taken about 4 weeks to edit the damn podcast.

    Happy Alien Day!

    Happy Alien Day!

    It's the 26th April and that means only one thing - a random date to celebrate a pivotal cultural moment.  Well, mostly a pivotal moment... mostly.  With LV426 being the moon that Alien is set on, later called Acheron (named after the Ancient Greek and meaning river of woe), it's close enough to a date format to create a point in time where we can talk about all things Xenomorph.  This year we also get to tie it in with the upcoming Aliens: Fireteam, which we still know little about, so Andy, Ali and Matt have taken the opportunity to talk about the history of movie franchise crossing over to games.  There have been a lot more titles than you might realise, some good, some awful, and here they're discussing the formative ones from their gaming lives.
    Listen to this episode of the Codec Moments Podcast to find out:
    What was the first Aliens game the team played
    Can Andy work out if his first memories were even an Aliens game
    If there's any love for Colonial Marines
    How far did everyone make it through Alien: Isolation
    Whether Ali confuses Alien Trilogy with Die Hard Trilogy
    Our hopes and expectations for Fireteam
    Does Matt confuse AvP2 with the first AvP game
    and more!

    The Name's Reaper... Tobias Reaper

    The Name's Reaper... Tobias Reaper

    It's not a surprise to any regular listeners that the Codec Moments team are bit Agent 47 fans, and that they were all buying into Hitman 3.  What is a bit of a shock is that it's taken over 2 months for them to actually get together to talk about the game!  It's time for Andy, Ali and Matt to wax lyrical about the eponymous bald assassin for what could be the final time...
    Listen to this special Hitman 3 episode of the Codec Moments Podcast to find out:
    If they enjoyed the latest instalment of IO Interactive's best known property
    What they think of the recent DLC announcements
    How the scope of the game has changed
    Who edited the show
    Was pre-ordering the deluxe edition worth it
    How many hours combined the team have put in across all platforms
    Does Hitman 3 in VR make you sick
    and more!

    2020 Gaming Quiz of the Year

    2020 Gaming Quiz of the Year

    It's our annual trip down memory lane where Matt and Andy pose questions at two unsuspecting guests - or in this case, Ali being joined by Stuart Cullen.  Filled with mince pies, Xmas pudding, and surrounded by shredded wrapping paper, the team recorded this in a state of post-Xmas bliss... whether they still felt good at the end is another question entirely.  Join them for the 2020 Gaming Quiz of the Year and see if you can beat their scores.
    Listen to this episode of The Codec Moments Podcast to find out:
    How long it will be before Stu starts swearing (clue - less than 2 mins)
    If Ali will improve his performance on previous years
    Whether the questions will be biased towards either contestant (of course they are)
    How arbitrary the scoring system is
    If the contestants can stop bickering about the lack of Xbox Series X titles
    That Stu secretly loves Google Stadia
    and more!
