The OMG! Hour: Episode 104

The One with the Movie Quotes

We have a couple of new features this week after first discussing what we’ve been playing: Wolfenstein: The New Order, Mario Kart 8, more Bound by Flame, 2048, Guild Wars 2, and some weird iOS game from Japan or China, or something. It’s weird. Seriously.  This week in the news we discuss the new features coming to Xbox One, the Surface Pro 3 announcement and features, Zenimax and Oculus VR, what can be made in the Unreal Engine 4 (it’s not what you think), Google looking to acquire Twitch, and the new dog-fighting mode coming soon to Star Citizen.

Finally, two new features debut this week: Lost Treasures with our Gaming Archaeologist, Syd Bolton, and Retro Reboot where we take an old game and reboot it for current the current generation.  We also have some Ready Player One inspired listener mail this week which leads to some fun discussions about movies.
