#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! We would love to chat with you through social media, and if you want to chat with us live please follow us on Twitch to get the alert when we go live each Saturday morning where you can join in on the show and talk about games with a couple of casual hairy mates! Enjoy!

#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!

#28 - BEST GAMES WE NEVER FINISHED

August 8, 2017

It’s the 21st century, and no one has any time for anything anymore (they do, it just doesn’t feel like it). This includes fun, interesting and exciting games that are critically acclaimed worldwide! So why is it that both Aaron and Jordan haven’t finished these games but have played games that are significantly more average? We discuss that, and list a number of games that we are VERY embarrassed to say we have never finished! Do you have any games that you know you should have finished, or even PLAYED, but never have? Do you have a friend that deserves to be ridiculed as much as we do for not having finished some of the greatest games ever made? Let us know in the comments or join our Discord and we’ll read them out on the next show!

As always we discuss the week in gaming news, including the total shipments of PS4s reaching 64 million, the concept art that has revealed that The Last of Us Part 2 is likely to be based in Seattle, and the details around the return of the Summer Games Event for Overwatch! We also chat with our audience live, as we do every week, and if you’d like to join in the fun please give us a Follow on Twitch to get the notification when we go LIVE every Saturday morning at around 10:30AM AEST. As a bonus we have set out a few dates for a LAN that we are going to live stream on the 26th and 27th of August (25th/26th for our USA friends) and a few of the games we will be playing that you can watch! If you like our show let your friends know and give this podcast a share. Happy listening!

#27 - IS XBOX DYING?

August 2, 2017
The boys are back in town! This time with their good friend Ollie to discuss the status of Xbox and it's future! Is the console dying? Why has Microsoft made so many questionable decisions with their exclusives? Will the Xbox One X be the saviour that the gamers have been waiting for? We get into all of that and more this episode! 
We also discuss Ollie's feelings on the Destiny 2 Beta, and the announcement that Aaron and I will be reviewing it on its release! We also check out the new gameplay trailer for Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, and discuss the results of the Overwatch Group stage that was held in Sydney (Australia did PRETTY DAMN WELL). As a bonus we also look at the new trailer for the Ready Player One movie from Steven Spielberg, and it looks pretty awesome!

#26 - IS GAMING BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH?

July 26, 2017

Oh boy! It's a heavy one this week! On episode 26 of the No Objective Gaming Podcast, Aaron and Jordan discuss the often-debated topic of whether gaming is bad for you or good for you! They discuss (or at least try to) the science behind the effect that long periods of gaming has on your brain and the changes that happen physically. We also talk about our strategies for not getting burnt out from playing too much (especially online competitive games) and how doing other activities can help you enjoy coming back to sitting on the couch and jamming out a mad PS4 session! We also discuss the release of the Destiny 2 beta and the general opinions on how it plays compared to its predecessor, and the release of the Call of Duty World War 2 NAZI ZOMBIES teaser trailer! Also, we do a quick run through of the results of day 1 of the Overwatch World Cup group stage that took place in Sydney the day before the show (hint: Australia KICKED ASS). As usual if you like our show and what we're all about please subscribe and follow the channel on Twitch to catch us LIVE on Saturday mornings (watch us instead of Saturday Disney!).

#25 - GROWING UP AS GAMERS

July 18, 2017

Ah, childhood. One of the great, forgettable mysteries of life! But who could POSSIBLY forget the hours spent chilling out with your siblings in front of the TV smashing each other in Crash Bash, or racing in the streets of Need for Speed Underground! Or maybe you were a solo gamer as a kid and you lived your life in the fantastic worlds of the Final Fantasy universe, or tank-controlling your way through Resident Evil and Silent Hill! Whatever your childhood, we have you covered as Jordan’s brother Connor joins the lads for a discussion on everything good and bad about growing up as gamers! We also talk about the moderate amount of gaming news in the week, including the start of the Overwatch League and much much more! If you like the cut of Connor’s jib you can check him out on his movie podcast called Fish and Connor Saw a Movie (chuck that in the iTunes search and I’m sure you’ll find it). Please jump on our Discord through the link below to chat with us and group up for games of Final Fantasy and Overwatch whenever you like, and find other like-minded gamers to talk with! As always if you like the show please tell your friends and give the show a share on social media, then jump on our Twitch as Aaron continues his rampage through the entire Final Fantasy series!

#24 – ARE INDIE GAMES THE FUTURE OF GAMING?

July 11, 2017

THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN! What a great song, with a great riff, much like the greatness of this episode! This week Aaron and Jordan discuss everything indie games, and the MASSIVE impact that it has had on the gaming industry. We talk about what we think the future will look like where more and more solo and small-team developers can publish their own games (and in some cases, works of art), and how this model will effect the AAA publishers. We get into our favourite indie titles and the evolution of some indie developers into lucrative companies. We also talk about the week in gaming news (as usual), including the release of DOOMFIST (sadly, not voiced by Terry Crews) for Overwatch and the announcement that all of the Super Nintendo Minis are COMPLETELY SOLD OUT in Australia, and one of the lads might have bought one… (Hint: it’s not Jordan). As usual, if you like the show please share it with your friends and let them know how they can watch us live on Twitch every weekend! If you want to watch us stream our gameplays then Jordan does Overwatch nights on Fridays and Aaron has just begun his 30 Years of Final Fantasy stream where he will be playing all the Final Fantasy games AS REQUESTED BY YOU! So jump on, give us a follow and chat with us live! Enjoy!

#23 - ARE RETRO GAMES MAKING A COMEBACK?

June 28, 2017

This week on the No Objective Gaming Podcast, Aaron and Jordan discuss the hotly debated topic: just how IN are retro games? Are they in the midst of a comeback? Have they ALREADY come back and we're just late on the uptake? Or are they on their way out? Is asking so many dumb questions frustrating you? Well! We have the show for you! We also discuss the week in gaming news, or lack thereof because it was the week after E3, as well as the few releases that came out. But for the most part we discuss our trip the a retro games sale in the middle of someone's front yard! You might even call it a YARD SALE! (listen to the episode and you'll get the joke...)
We picked up a few games and talk about our history with them, and as usual we have a few people who jumped in the chat LIVE with us!

#22 - THE E3 WRAP-UP SPECTACULAR!

June 28, 2017

Well, once again E3 has come and gone for another year! And as much as this year may have been a little disappointing for some (yeah, we were a little bummed out) we put a show together for you to discuss our (unwanted) thoughts and feels on the subject. What do you think? Did you love what you saw? Were you disappointed? Or was this just more of the same? Together with our good friend Scuba, we share our thoughts for basically the whole show, and it takes over the news segment for this week COMPLETELY, discussing each developer’s show and ALL the games that were shown! So yeah, as usual we take a quick peak at the releases for the week (some rally game?) before gasbagging for an hour and a half! Do you like swearing and strong opinions? Do you have a beard and want to compare them with Aaron and Jordan? Well the No Objective Gaming Podcast is for you! And if you wanna chat with us and our friends please jump in our Discord channel and game with us! Happy listening!
