Episode 8 - "Crowd" Multiplayer, Charity Gaming Marathons, Gaming Urban Legends

This week we are looking at crowd multiplayer where game streamers can have their games changed by those watching at home. Rise of Tomb Raider on Xbox One can take the input of viewers on Twitch and introduce challenges and help. Indie game Choice Chamber takes this to another level. Seriously check it out, it's kinda mind blowing.

If you've spent many long nights playing games, you'll be familiar with marathon gaming sessions. We spoke to Dione and Keegan from the 1UP Game Marathon who on Saturday 14th will be playing games for 24 hours to raise money for MS Society WA. Last week the Extra Life marathon raised millions for charity, so what is it about gaming that gets people to open their wallets. They might need either some protective equipment such as these gaming glasses.

Finally this week the collaboration between Nintendo and Sony was discovered after years of rumour and speculation. We talk all the big gaming rumours and urban legends, such as the massive flop ET: The Extra Terrestrial on the Atari 2600 found in a desert grave.
