#42 - THE XBOX DEFENCE!

November 15, 2017

Conversation starts at 49:00

Oh boy, we’re bound to hear about THIS ONE in the comments! This week we’re joined by our close friend Colin to discuss his recent purchase of his Xbox One X, and discuss with us its pros and cons to see if it is the machine to bring the Xbox to its former (360-era) glory! We discuss the hardware capabilities, the current OS it supports, the games supported by 4K resolution, and the future of the games and the machine in general. Please try to remember that these are just games and consoles, and none of this really matters (it’s just entertainment!) so try not to be too salty. We all just want what’s best for games in general, and we hope that Microsoft has done the right thing by their consumers! We also discuss the week in gaming news as usual, and the weekly releases! This includes the release of the new Frozen Wilds expansion for Horizon Zero Dawn, the announcement of a new Lineage game, Ubisoft attempting to GIVE AWAY Watch Dogs because no one wants to touch it with a ten foot pole, the Overwatch League team announcements, and much more! If you’d like to watch us live on Twitch give the channel a follow through the link below and be sure to tune in at 10:30AM AEST to chat with us about your week of gaming madness! If you’d like to support the show you can do so through the donation link on our Twitch page, or better yet, why not become a subscriber? You’ll get access to our private channel on Discord and our newly approved emotes in Twitch chat, as well as go down in the annals of history as a real top bloke! Enjoy!

#39 - TWITCH VS. YOUTUBE!

October 24, 2017

The two biggest streaming platforms go toe-to-toe this week on the No Objective Gaming Podcast! Aaron and Jordan delve into the differences between the two platforms and their experience with each as content creators and consumers. They discuss the current issues surrounding YouTube advertising and the effect this has had on content creation, and the future of the once flawless platform! Is Twitch the superior platform? Is it able to surpass YouTube for gaming content as well as live streaming? Only time will tell (MGSV had SUCH a good soundtrack!) whether the current issues with YouTube will pay off for the Amazon-owned enterprise…

We also discuss the week in news and new gaming releases, including the release of South Park: The Fractured But Whole, the controversy surrounding the new loot box inquiry being undertaken by the UK government, the sexual harassment claims against Naughty Dog by a former employee, the man who stole a box of copies of COD WW2 and sold them on eBay, the ratings controversy surrounding COD WW2 and the content that was removed from it, and much more! If you enjoy the show you can support it simply by sharing it on social media or letting your gamer mates know about us. We are now affiliated on Twitch, so you can subscribe on a monthly plan to support the show if you wish but this isn’t necessary if you can’t afford it.

#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. If you enjoy this podcast please feel free to support the show simply by sharing it on social media! It’s all we ask and it helps grow our community that much bigger so gamers like you can meet like-minded people to jump online with and watch the hours pass by! So join our Discord server and get chatting!

#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

September 20, 2017

WORST VIDEO GAME MOVIES EVER STARTS AT 48:00

What could possibly be worse than a remaster of a 2 year old game? What do gamers not only despise, but actively avoid? Why, it’s video game movies of course! This week on the No Objective Gaming Podcast Aaron and Jordan discuss the WORST video game movies of ALL TIME! We go through some of the terrible movies that we’ve seen that should be banished from the face of the Earth, and talk to our fans in the chat about some of their all-time worst video game movies. We also discuss the week in gaming news including the changes to the Overwatch reporting system that shall bring balance to the Force, and the new weapon and town additions to Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds! All of this, and more on a fun- and idiocy-filled podcast for casual and hardcore gamers alike!

#33 - FIRST IMPRESSIONS OF DESTINY 2

September 11, 2017

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!
