Podcast Unlocked

In this week's nightmarish trainwreck of a podcast, Ryan McCaffrey, Destin Legarie, Mitch Dyer, and Marty "Tardy" Sliva show you why Podcast Unlocked is the #1 Xbox podcast. GTA V and awkward banter dominate the beginning of this week's show, which ravels out of control as the team gets into this week's news and releases. Destin is maybe only kind of present as he teaches Chop tricks on his iPhone.

It's been a weird week. Join us for the madness, won't you?

As Grand Theft Auto V drops, Mitch, Destin, and Marty are all traveling, and so Ryan recruits the awesome Naomi Kyle and IGN boss-man Steve Butts to discuss the impact of Rockstar's newly fallen meteor. How does its five-year development cycle make it a different (better?) game than Assassin's Creed's and Call of Duty's annual releases? Does Naomi think the game is misogynist? And will GTA ever have a female protagonist?

Plus: News on Ryse, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and how sports games are cursed every year.

Podcast Unlocked 112: Real Talk Edition

This week, Ryan McCaffrey, Destin Legarie, Marty Sliva and I (sorry, I'm back!) dig deep into our depressing pasts to discuss games that got us through tough times. Then, we debate the Steam Family Sharing vs. Xbox One's original plan.

Also:

  • Valiant Hearts
  • Child of Light
  • Xbox One's leaked Dashboard
  • SPORTS!
  • Seriously, a bunch of sports, we promise it's interesting.

Hilariously, we recorded this podcast Tuesday afternoon thinking Ryan would be out of the office Wednesday. He's not, and of course Microsoft announced the Xbox One release date before we could post the show. So here, as a record for all time, are our final predictions for the release date. Laugh at how wrong (or right!) we all are. We also talk about Microsoft buying Nokia and what it means for Xbox, Grand Theft Auto V impressions from Ryan (who played it at Rockstar's office in New York), Minecraft's unstoppable growth, and special guest Jose gets genuinely offended by the protagonist of LocoCycle. We have an intelligent discussion about it.
