The Inner Gamer,

192: Super Mario Party, Hyper Light Drifter and Microsoft Project xCloud

October 15, 2018

Super Mario Party is here! We dive into the 11th iteration of this game which will celebrate it’s 20th anniversary next year. It’s an awesome game and we dive deep into the variety of game modes, mini-games, characters and more with this Switch exclusive. We also finally give Hyper Light Drifter a try. It’s available on Switch now so we figured we’d dive in and find out why this started a trend in gaming with their mechanics.

In our news, Bethesda teams up with the state of West Virginia anticipating an increase in tourism to the state when Fallout 76 releases. Playstation announces name changes finally coming, Skybound Games picked up the final season of Telltale’s The Walking Dead and Red Dead Redemption 2 was featured in a Call of Juarez teaser.

We also dive deep into Microsoft’s video about their new cloud initiative called Project xCloud. It uses Azure tech to provide Xbox One X level quality gaming via streaming. This means you can play games in the Microsoft interface literally anywhere. Is it viable? Listen to find out!
