Big Red Barrelcast 103: No Diggity

The Big Red Barrelcast returns to tickle your eardrums with their ramblings! On this week’s episode, Kev, Pacman and Dave blabber on about Extra Life, Halo 5 and Legacy of The Void.

This time, they pontificate about:

  • Halo 5
  • Blizzcon News
  • Drive Club 60fps in PS VR
  • A new Vampire game on the horizon?

We’d love to give you all some sort of incredible hug immediately followed by a polite conversation about how cool you are, but frankly we can’t afford the travel expenses.

  1. It had fun multiplayer sure. But its multiplayer suite was nowhere, not even close, to as good as SOCOM’s. Lets compare shall we?

    SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 2 (released Nov 6th, 2006):
    Supported ad hoc AND online play
    16 players
    12 maps
    7 different gameplay modes
    In-game friends lists, clan support, and leaderboards
    Built-in voice chat

    Killzone Mercenary (released Sept 10th, 2013):
    8 players
    6 maps
    3 different gameplay modes
    Leaderboards and friends lists but no clan support
    No in-game voice chat – only PSN Party Chat – so unless you knew someone with the game who wanted to party up you were basically playing a modern multiplayer shooter with no group communication or strategy whatsoever.

    Killzone Mercenary is certainly one of the best handheld first-person shooters. Taken as a package (visuals etc).

    BUT…its multiplayer offering paled in comparison to a game that came out 7 years before it.

  2. great show peep`s

    now we have found out the century old question “how to get a canadian angry” let him play unity. lol

  3. Blathers

    Kev mentioned that the USB port on the side of the Xbone is USB 3.0, which is true, but so are the two on the back.

    It looks tidier when you’re plugging an external in the back. I’m using a 7200rpm 2,5″ drive. A Touro. I’ve got Fallout 4 on it and has not experienced any of the reported stutters…. Yet. 😉

    Thanks for the show, keep up the great work. I’ve been listening since it was called the Blue Show. Well, it wasn’t, but you get the idea.

  4. MunyucManzy

    Hey guys. Great show as always – and I agree 100% about the SOCOM Multiplayer being leagues ahead of it’s competition. We all know handheld Killzone was a great game nontheless.

    Also been listening since Blushow. Getting a shout out at the end of this episode came as a nice surprise – made me so happy guys. Thanks a lot.

    Keep up the great casting. I love every single minute of it!
