Time to welcome Generation Eight of video gaming! After an exhaustive look at Generation Seven last episode which ended with that garbage being taken out to the curb, the crew returns to review both the Xbox One and the PS4 along with lots of the new games including Call of Duty Ghosts, Ryse Son of Rome, Knack, Killzone Shadow Fall, Forza Motorsport 5, Battlefield 4, Need for Speed Rivals, NBA 2K14 and more. The future is now, you loose cannons!
Perhaps once or twice over the next couple of weeks you’ll find yourself standing in line for a new video game console. Allow us to entertain you while you wait with our Games of the Generation Spectacular 2013!
The first half of this epic podcast includes talk about Beyond: Two Souls, Batman: Arkham Origins, Pokemon Y (Y? Because we like Pokemon!), Bioshock: Infinite and lots more. Then the second half arrives and we turn on the hyperbole machine to close out the Xbox 360/Playstation 3 era of video gaming. I don’t want to spoil any of our picks, but I will say this… if you’re not digging out your Rock Band instruments by the end of this episode then YOU HAVE NO SOUL.
This episode of No Quarters we focus on one game only and that game is GTA V. It’s the most expensive game ever made so we figured it was worth an entire episode of us rambling on. We remain mostly spoiler free but based on sales, you’ve probably played this anyway.
Between some sweet, sweet bookended Saints Row IV talk (spoiler free first, then spoilers abound in the segment after the outro music!), we find some time to discuss Divekick, Skullgirls, Gone Home, Plants vs Zombies 2, Ingress, Vita TV and tangents galore. It’s the best episode we’ve ever done in the month of September in the year 2013, so check it out!
The Steam Summer Sale has concluded and we talk about our booty, yarr, including Torchlight 2, Shadowrun Returns, Organ Trail, Surgeon Simulator 2013, Prison Architect, Antichamber and others. Chuck attempts to find some fun with Grand Theft Auto 4 (spoiler: he doesn’t) and Maki gives both that and Saints Row the Third a whirl. And everyone’s favorite BJ returns to deliver some Tales From Ingress, which is a mobile game for a few relevant mobile devices.
Perhaps you met one of us at Gamewarp 2013, picked up one of our awesome business cards or StreetPassed with one of our numerous Nintendo 3DSes. Welcome!

It’s hot outside, and of course we’re in the middle of the Steam Summer Sale. So naturally everyone is staying in to play all the latest video games! After some console chat involving The Last of Us, Bioshock Infinite, Ride to Hell: Retribution and The Walking Dead: 400 Days, there’s all kinds of PC gaming talk including FTL (which BJ literally plays during the podcast), Endless Space, Max Payne 3 and lots more. Plus, Gamewarp is rapidly approaching and we pay our respects to Giantbomb’s Ryan Davis who sadly passed away last week.
The saddest episode of No Quarters features tears over The Last of Us and The Walking Dead, anger sets in with Fast & Furious: Showdown, and confusion reigns when Dragon Age II and State of Decay are played. Thankfully, joy arrives as Chuck rediscovers Animal Crossing on his shiny new Nintendo 3DS. Also, stay away from kids.
Our last game of Neptune’s Pride 2: Triton was so popular that we decided discussion of our second game should be its very own episode! And so here it is! Come listen to the post-mortem breakdown of how to be an anonymous space-dick.
It’s a bonus episode of No Quarters as we talk about all the drama, shenanigans and then eventually the games of E3 2013. Who won: Sony or Microsoft? Did Nintendo say anything interesting? Will the OUYA take over the gaming world? And when will someone put Razor Callahan in another Need For Speed game? All these questions will be answered in this very episode! (Note: Saints Row IV image unrelated to podcast, but SAINTS ROW IV OMG!)
