Episode 121: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Stadia

We talk at length about Google Stadia, the new streaming platform that Google announced at GDC. We also talked about Lucasarts coming back (and then found out after the fact that it's probably not true, whoops!) Nintendo is releasing a TON of games on the Switch including a surprise Zelda game and Oculus revealed the Rift S. We answered a bunch of great questions (some about video games, some not) and dug into some great cheap and free games coming out in the last half of the month.

Past Episodes

Hans got to play the new Sterns Munsters Pinball, the Playstation Classic has been hovering around $40 for a while now (and might be worth that?), a guy found a NES Championship cart worth $15-20k in his attic, a very specific Super Mario Bros cartridge sold for $100k, new games are available on the Switch if you subscribe to Switch Online and Sega is asking for recommendations on games for the new Sega Mini. After the news we take a deep dive into Beat 'Em Ups from Kung Fu Master to Double Dragon to X-Men. There are so many amazing games in this genre just dripping with nostalgia! Finally, we answer some questions from Vinny, Turndown4what and JoeColeslaw!

The Master Chief Collection is coming to PC (and Steam!), the OG version of Diablo is back and up on GOG, the Dead Cells DLC is coming out way sooner than we thought, Bioware is patching bugs and players are pissed, Devil May Cry 5 has a scene that is only censored on the PS4 and a couple of new Octopath games are in the pipeline. Plus we answer a bunch of great questions (some that are about breakfast), talk cheap and free games, look at a new Small Bites and throw Spiro in Troll Corner.

It's another great week in podcastland! We talk about a fun writer reveal for Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order, Days Gone effectively has two full length movies stuffed inside of it, the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition might actually be a thing, Friday the 13th: The Game: The Switch Edition: Plus DLC is a thing (although we still aren't sure how), if you aren't playing Apex Legends or Fortnite what are you actually playing, Anthem is not very stable on the PS4 and RIP PS Vita. We also answer some great questions, talk Girl Scout cookies and go over a TON of cheap and free games.

It seems like it's been forever since the entire Byte Me Podcast team has all been in the same room together and so we let this one take as long as it needed to! We talked about the Pokemon Sword and Shield announcement, the new Detective Pikachu trailer, Dead Cells is getting free DLC this year, Kingdom Hearts is getting a board game, Anthem has a pretty solid 90 day plan, Reggie Fils-Aime is retiring (and being replaced by Bowser), Chex Quest HD has a new trailer, and Xbox games might be coming to both Windows 10 and the Switch! We answered some questions (and talked a lot about reviews), talked about a ton of cheap and free games, and even did a Small Bit and Troll Corner!

Cliff was out having fun in the Florida sun in WDW and forgot to post this episode in the timely manner to which you have become accustomed. Please forgive him. :) Dylan and Adam held down the fort in Seattle, talking about free copies of AC: Odyssey showing up in Uplay for people who played it via Google Stream, Crackdown 3 isn't quite living up to people's expectations, the Anthem Day One patch is huge (but helps with load times), Skull & Bones is getting a TV show (before it even has a release date) and an unlicensed Fortnite Festival gets shuts down after Epic sues them.
01:11:19 2/21/2019

Sadly we were without Adam again this week (but he should be back next week, just in time for Cliff to leave.) On the plus side, Cliff played enough games last week to make up for Dylan and Adam.

There was a TON of news to talk about this week. 

Just before we started recording, Activision-Blizzard announced they were laying off roughly 8% of their workforce, or 775 employees. Apex Legends his the 25 million player mark and announces both the start of their first season and a Valentine's Day based event, Fortnite will let you merge accounts now (, the CEO of Hi-Rez calls out Sony and tells them to stop playing favorites and give everyone (including Paladins) cross play, Crackdown 3 won't let you play with your friends in the competitive multiplayer at launch, some former Telltale alums are creating a new studio with some cool sounding ideas, Playstation has a new boss, AC: Odyssey is getting a new game plus, Beat Saber players are a lot faster than Valve was giving them credit for and Capcom dumped a ton of music on Spotify ( 

We answered some great questions from Vinny, JoeColeslaw and Eddie and don't forget to grab Thimbleweed Park when it goes free on the Epic Store later this month!

Dylan and Cliff did their first remote podcast, recorded from the comfort of their respective houses! This week, we talked about Apex Legends, the new game from Respawn Entertainment, the developers of Titanfall. The good news is it's apparently a very solid squad based battle royale game set in the Titanfall universe. The bad news is that nobody is working on Titanfall 3. We also talked about how Anthem won't have guilds at launch, how 10 million people watched an EDM concert in Fortnite and how the movie Groundhog Day is getting a VR based sequel 26 years later. We went over this month's Playstation Plus games, some free games from Twitch Prime, the February additions to Game Pass and the March entry for the Humble Bundle. You'll probably not be shocked to find out that Gamers are back in Troll Corner, this time for review bombing the Metro games. Maybe y'all actually don't like games?
01:23:27 2/7/2019
Full disclosure, this is actually episode 5, but we screwed up the numbering. So just pretend that episode 5 is some sort of missing episode, lost to the sands of time! Hans, Cliff and Dylan get nostalgic for Disney in this months episode! But first, we talked about all the new Arcade1Up cabinets debuting at CES and the new Munsters pinball. We then took a deep dive, starting with Tron in the arcades, through early 80's when a bunch of future Sierra folks got started making games for the mouse, into the NES and edutainment eras and then into the 90's with the SNES and Genesis. We even got a little bit modern, talking Kingdom Hearts and Epic Mickey.
01:08:23 2/1/2019
Adam is sick today, so it was just Cliff and Dylan holding down the fort for Episode 114. Cliff was also sick, but not as sick as Adam, so please excuse any sniffling and coughing. :) In our now playing section, Dylan told us all about a new board game he's been playing called Gloomhaven ( Cliff is still busing playing Hellblade for Byte Me DLC Plays (, he finally got to play Rocket League via crossplay with everyone and got to try out the Anthem VIP Beta. In news, we found the best way to catch up with Kingdom Hearts (, there are now over 500 games in the Xbox Backwards Compatibility program, GameStop appears to have screwed up the Kingdom Hearts PS4 pre-orders, Metroid Prime 4 probably isn't going to come out for a while (and Cliff has a lot to say about EA and Nintendo), you could win $250k as a virtual farmer and AC: Odyssey is going to fix their broken DLC. Vinny had a great question about what the future holds for the Epic store and how Valve needs to change to compete and Joe wants to know what the next round of games that get crossplay should be (but wasn't willing to accept "all of them" as an answer!) We rounded up Games with Gold for February, talked about the new PS4 Humble Bundle, what games you can get free from Epic next month and accidentally skipped that Pikuniku is free on Twitch Prime (whoops!) We don't do Small Bites that often, but this week wanted to shout out sloth<3chunk and stony419 from Clan Goonies 2 who dropped into Discord repping the mobile game Smashing Four. Dylan and Cliff will give their impressions next week.
