The Gaming Outsider Podcast – Episode 077: Far Cry Primal and the Controllers We Love

Wednesday is here and we got a fresh new episode of The Gaming Outsider podcast for everyone. This week we welcome special guest Shannon Moore to come talk games with us. In our “whatcha been playing” segment we discuss our experiences with Far Cry Primal, Fire Emblem: Fates and Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. Josh goes into a little Pokemon nostalgia for the 20th anniversary by discussing how he was introduced to the series and also sharing his impressions on the New Nintendo 3DS Pokemon Anniversary bundle as well as Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. The crew covers the latest gaming news including the reveal of Dontnod’s new title, Nintendo NX rumors and Microsoft’s odd announcement of an unusual new Conker game. Our community topic this week centers around gaming controllers — the ones we love, the ones we hate and the first one we’ve ever touched. Also, listen to find out how you can win a free copy of Alien: Isolation for PC!
