#38 - IS PAY-TO-WIN THE FUTURE OF GAMING?

October 18, 2017

The main topic starts at 40:00

The lads from No Objective Gaming are jumping on the Loot Box hype train this week and discuss the seemingly new feature to Triple-A titles: PAY-TO-WIN! We say seemingly, however we discuss the systems that have been in place for several years within the FIFA, Madden and NHL games that apply this system to great effect (financially). Aaron and Jordan run through the currently discussed Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot box system, and the other culprit, Middle Earth: Shadow of War’s ranked game mode and loot box system and give their thoughts on the implications that this has for gaming as a whole. Is this a bad omen of things to come from money-hungry publishers, or is it just a phase? Is a boycott of these games a solution to this problem? Is this system acceptable when these games are not “free to play”? All of that and more on that topic on this week’s episode! We also discuss the week in gaming news, and the release of Middle Earth: Shadow of War and The Evil Within 2 to consoles and PC.

#37 - EB EXPO WRAP-UP SHOW!

October 11, 2017

This weekend the lads went to EB EXPO at the Gold Coast Convention Centre and BOY did they see and do some cool stuff! Aaron and Jordan discuss their trip to this massive event, including the huge amount of games they experienced, the people they met and saw wandering around, and the massive amount of stuff to watch and purchase! With games like Wolfenstein 2, Assassins Creed: Origins, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, Ashes Cricket (HOWZAT!), Mario Odyssey, Middle Earth: Shadow of War, Nino Kuni 2, Gran Turismo Sport, and many more you KNOW that the guys have a lot to talk about. We have some great footage of the gang playing many of these games and just being idiots at what turned out to be an awesome day. Big thanks to our mate Fraser for coming along with us and joining in on some Overwatch fun at the OMEN by HP booth! We also discuss the week in gaming news, including Jordan’s thoughts on the Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta, the server issues being addressed by Bluehole (the creators of PUBG), and Ubisoft wanting your farts!

#35 - DESTINY 2: DOES IT SUCK?

September 27, 2017

It’s the moment of truth! Aaron and Jordan are once again joined by their good mate Scuba to give their final review of Destiny 2! We discuss and score the story, gameplay, sound design, art and graphics, and the replayability of this highly anticipated 2017 MMO FPS. To make sure we give you the most detailed review possible we have postponed gaming news and new release games for next week, so be sure to tune in from the beginning of the show where we discuss this MASSIVE title straight away! While each of us played the game for an average of about 35 hours, we were unable to attempt the Leviathan raid, and this is likely to have changed our scores, so please consider that when listening to the review! This is also just our opinion, however each of us had different feelings on the same game so if you like similar games to any one of us you may find our verdict more suitable to you. Share this episode with your gamer friends and foes alike, and be sure to check us out next week when we return to the usual format for the show, where we talk complete GARBAGE about games and have a good laugh with everyone in the chat! Enjoy!

 

***SCORE SPOILERS***

No Objective Gaming Destiny 2 score: 7.2/10

IMPRESSIONS START AT 47:17

Aaron and Jordan are back on their lonesome this week because everyone got sick of them playing games and not showering (it’s not nice to smell that). So instead they did this week’s show on Destiny 2 and the massive hype behind its release! We go through our first impressions after about 10 hours of gameplay, and give some of our notes of the game so far. This isn’t a review, but just our thoughts on the game after the first few days. We will be reviewing in two weeks from now on the show and Scuba will be joining us again for that one! So pencil us in your Hello Kitty diaries and watch us LIVE to chat with us about your thoughts on this highly anticipated game! (Please note: these thoughts are only first impressions and some of these may have changed with new information, and some will DEFINITELY change by the time the review comes around. So please bear with us if we get anything wrong!)

As always we’re LIVE each Saturday morning where you can join in the show (just like Scuba and Kippa did in the chat!). We stream most days playing Destiny 2, PUBG, Overwatch and much, much more! So if you like what we do here feel free to give us a follow on Twitch to get the alerts when we’re streaming. It really helps support the show! Enjoy!

#30 - ESPORTS VS. REAL SPORTS

August 21, 2017
Aaron and Jordan are BACK and officially 30 episodes in! For this most monumental achievement, we give you one hell of a topic: ESPORTS VS. REAL SPORTS! We discuss our thoughts on the growth of Esports and whether it should be treated with the same legitimacy as regular sport, and all of the criticisms that are constantly levelled against Esports. We list our favourite sports (cricket is the greatest sport in the world) and how they measure up in terms of skill to Esports and the amount of time invested and skill required to reach the top level of play! Check out this episode for our thoughts on that! 
As always we discuss the week in gaming news, including the news that Crash Bandicoot Remastered is likely to be released on Xbox One shortly, and the rumour of a Warcraft 3 Remaster on the horizon! We also talk about this week's releases and our week in streaming! If you enjoy the show please don't forget to jump on our social media platforms and follow us there to keep up with all of our gameplay news, and let us know what you think of our new layouts and logo!

#29 - THE MMORPG GRAVEYARD

August 16, 2017

This week on the No Objective Gaming Podcast, Aaron and Jordan are breaking down the ever-growing list of MMORPGs that have died not with a bang but with a whimper! Why are some of the best games ever made so often doomed to a life in the shadow of World of Warcraft? And why, as players, have we played so many of these only to get burnt out and return to other games? Is this formula for game development dying? We discuss all of these topics and our favourite MMOs of all time in detail. We also delve into the week in gaming news, including the news about the Middle-Earth: Shadow of War DLC and War Chests, the speculation of a 2024 Olympics that features Esports, and the news that Gearbox is developing a 1v1 Shooter/Card game (I know right!). There's heaps more news, the week in gaming releases and a whole heap of nonsense talk between two mates! If you enjoy the show please share it with your friends, and very shortly we will be releasing our new logo and banner! If you want to be a part of our Discord channel when we do our epic LAN on the 26th and 27th of August please click the link below and you'll join right in! Enjoy!
