Fallout 4 Hype and Dragon Fin Soup – Episode 4 – SHOW NOTES:
What’s been going on: Halloween came and went like a whisper in the night. Spooky. But really, Halloween was fun. We’ve had a busy week of work as well as house shopping.
A huge thank you to our community. You came out of the woodwork to support Pixel Pulse Radio. We broke into the iTunes Top 100 and even landed on the iTunes front page under New and Noteworthy! You all rule!
First 100 backwards compatibility games will be announced Monday, November 9. There seemed to have been a potential leak on a foreign website. Oddly enough, Black Ops 2 and Red Dead Redemption were not featured on the list. These two games were the most requested games for the program. Its worth noting that these are the first 100… which implies there will be more coming.
Star Wars Battlefront’s Battle of Jakku teaser trailer dropped. So did a video showing off the gorgeous planets. Real nice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7waDN0ukFxw
Black Ops 3 essentially has two campaigns: one regular, and one zombie-themed. Activision has also released footage showing the free run mode. All of these things have Alex reconsidering his decision to not purchase this game. http://kotaku.com/black-ops-iiis-solo-experience-is-surprisingly-deep-1740734522?trending_test_d&utm_expid=66866090-62._DVNDEZYQh2S4K00ZSnKcw.4&utm_referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fkotaku.com%2F%3Ftrending_test_d
Activision bought King Digital Entertainment, the makers of Candy Crush, for $5.9 BILLION! That’s A LOT of cheddar. Link: http://www.polygon.com/2015/11/2/9662230/activision-buys-candy-crush-maker-king
Kojima Productions Los Angeles a.k.a. Konami Los Angeles was shut down after the completion of Metal Gear Online. Right before the holidays too. Konami is garnering a ton of good will… Link:http://www.gamespot.com/articles/metal-gear-online-studio-konami-la-shut-down-repor/1100-6431933/
Fallout 4 hype has reached maximum capacity. Bethesda released a launch trailer. Several screenshots/bits of footage were leaked this week. The gunplay was directly inspired by Destiny, which is exciting. Also, apparently Skyrim was ported to the Xbox One during the development of Fallout 4! http://kotaku.com/loads-of-fallout-4-gameplay-details-leak-early-1740007661 ; http://www.gamespot.com/articles/fallout-4-gunplay-modeled-after-destinys/1100-6431981/; http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/11/03/fallout-4-began-with-a-skyrim-xbox-one-port
The Warcraft movie teaser looked nice. A larger trailer will release on Friday at Blizzcon.http://io9.com/this-15-second-warcraft-movie-teaser-will-be-the-best-1-1740285286
The Witcher is getting a movie? In 2017? And its produced by the makers of The Mummy franchise? Weird.http://www.gamespot.com/articles/the-witcher-movie-coming-in-2017-from-the-mummy-pr/1100-6432017/
For the Consumer:
Amazon Prime is offering $10 off of Halo 5, Tomb Raider, and Fallout 4. Prime members can also get $5 off of Battlefront.
PC Gamers can get Battlefront for $45 over at Green Man Gaming. That’s the best deal we’ve seen.

What Have We Been Playing?
We talk more about Halo 5. Mostly multiplayer. Brandon has been playing Battlefield: Hardline and is enjoying the campaign quite a bit. Alex has the New Xbox OS and he likes it, but needs more time with it. Alex discusses his experience with Dragon Fin Soup, and offers a few suggestions to The Grimm Bros.
