This week on VGS…..
We are on location at a secret location in Toronto to look at all of Microsoft’s goodies! The Xbox Team in Toronto held X16, a yearly event where us Canucks get a chance to go hands on with some big new Xbox titles. Those titles include but aren’t limited to: Dead Rising 4, Gears of War 4, Final Fantasy XV and Cuphead.
NEWS OF THE WEEK Starts at 4:51
Are you a fan of the Gears series?
Host Andy isn’t, but after spending 20-30 minutes playing Gears 4 he’s a recent convert. What does Gears of War 4 need to do for you to get excited all over again? The team got to play at length a portion of the single player campaign and even speak to a member of the development team.
Think electric wind tornadoes of death for all, very very fun.
FEATURE INTERVIEW Starts at 24:42
The Final Fantasy series is one of the most storied and influential titles to ever be released. As we wait more and more for Final Fantasy 15 the team got a chance to play it, yup to put their hands on it and let me tell you, it’s better than you can possibly imagine.
During X16 we played, roughly the first 60 minutes of the title in that playthrough we noticed several things.
Anyone who had fears of the loss of that Final Fantasy feel with the mixture of modern day can rest easy. It is strange, it is weird, it is fun and most importantly, it’s Final Fantasy.
BIG thanks this week to Rich, Liam, Thomas, Anton and Cam – without you we couldn’t make it happen! Listen to our complete show below.
