Commander Keen and I go back a long time, in fact it was the franchise that made me a PC Gamer. Developed by id Software, Commander Keen proved that games on par with what you could play on a Nintendo console could also be played on the PC, and brought the shareware business model into the mainstream.

As with all podcasts, we will be discussing the history of the game franchise, talk about our experiences with it, and finally speculate on what we think the future holds.  No reason to stall any longer, you can listen to the entire episode below.

Next time, we will be discussing the PlayStation exclusive game franchise Until Dawn.

This year celebrates the twentieth anniversary of the release of the original Pokémon titles in Japan. We’ve covered as many of the special events as we could, but there’s a lot more about this franchise that we haven’t been able to say.

As you know, our Podcasts are an unscripted series where we can talk about any video game franchise. We have gotten many requests to do a podcast about the Pokémon games, but we held off doing them because we hadn’t played the vast majority of the games until recently.

So I’m honored to present you with our exclusive contribution to the Pokémon20 celebration, the Pokémon Podcast!  In it, we talk about our history with the franchise, what we thought of the game series and wrap up with what we think the future holds in store for fans!

You might want to schedule some time off before you listen, at two and a half hours in length this will be our longest podcast ever.

The podcast returns!  This week, inspired by the amazing work of Bioware and Lucasarts, Maniac produced an unscripted podcast about the Knights of the Old Republic franchise.  This is a franchise many have considered an apology for the prequel trilogy, as the first game in the series alone has been considered by many gamers to be the best Star Wars video game of all time.

Like with most of our podcasts, we’re going to talk about the franchise’s history, our experiences with it, and where we think the franchise is headed next.  Enjoy!

Dead Rising Podcast October 31, 2013

In honor of Halloween, GameXcess.net’s latest podcast is focused on a fantastic video game horror series, Dead Rising.  The game has spawned two major titles, two remakes, and two downloadable games.  Where many games focus specifically on the fear, Dead Rising is one of the rare franchises that makes you think about the impact we as humans have had, and what the consequences of our actions could bring.Well that, and they’re great open world zombie hack and slash games where everything can become a weapon, and anywhere can be explored.

As usual for any site podcast we talk about the origins of the series, our experiences playing it, and what the future holds for the series.  Enjoy!
