80: It’s a Virtue

Join Jono, Joe and Jase as they discuss patience with video games. How much of a chance do you give a game before it goes back on the shelf, gets refunded or finds it’s way to the trash? Jono also runs us through his latest eBay purchases and Joe shares his Robocop colouring in book. Pretty sure that’s not suitable for kids.

79: All About That Bass

Join Jono, Joe and Jase, who are certainly all ’bout that bass, no treble. Tech guru Jase chats about his time with the Xbox Wireless Headset and gives us a rundown on the ins and outs of all things sound and we also have a look at EA Play coming to Xbox Game Pass on PC. We also talk about old faithful Warzone, the new season of Fortnite, the spider-filled Monster Hunter movie, the spookiness of Control, the blazing fast Spider-Man Miles Morales and Jono lets us know a “great” old school C&C tactic that meant he cousin never lost

78: Fortnite…Finally

Join Jono, Joe and Jase as the inevitable finally happens… all three have now played Fortnite! There are no prizes for guessing who has be allured most by the sweet, sweet pop culture skins. We chat about chicken dinners, lack of transferrable Minecraft building skills and if there is any soul to the game. Also, Jase keeps us all up to date on the latest in Destiny 2, Joe needs consoling on the terribly unsatisfying ending to The Medium (massive spoilers, but really we are doing you a favour) and we spend a big chunk of the episode reminiscing on

77: Death by Banana

Join Jono, Joe and Jase as they chat about the wonderfully quirky Hitman III and the even quirkier Donut County. Jase downsizes his gaming options while Jono upsizes his Transformers and retro games collection.

76: GOTY 2020

Join Jono, Joe and Jase as they discuss the Versus Player 2020 (Dumpster Fire) Game of the Year. As always we play pretty fast and loose with the rules so don’t expect any sort of structure as we run through our choices. There are three catagories this year: Game of the Year 2020 Game of the Year Not 2020 Hot Garbage Also Happy Birthday to Jase (me) and welcome to the planet Jade. I guess this is kind of self indulgent but I can type whatever I want! Hope everyone has an awesome 2021.

75: Go Back to Sleep Samurai

Join Jono, Joe and Jase as they discuss the Cyberpunk fiasco. As Shiggy once said “A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad” but was that really the case here? Get the hot take from a CD Project Red super fan, a player who never boarded the hype train and our resident patient gamer. We also discuss the Mandalorian finale WITHOUT spoilers and the Star Wars expanded universe timeline. A quick note from Jase: This will be my last edit for awhile as I focus on a new edition joining the Versus Player family any

74: Happy Birthday Jono

While this week’s episode isn’t specifically about Jono or growing older and wiser I’d like to use this little corner of the internet to show our appreciation to Jono and his important involvement in keeping Versus Player playing. Our motto is games, life and everything in-between and more often than not life gets in the way of doing the things you love. We know that Versus Player gets lost in the big basket of gaming podcasts out there but it isn’t success, money or fame that has kept this podcast going for four years. It’s friendship. There would be no

73: jBay

Join Jono, Joe and Jase as we discuss Jono’s eBay purchases over the years. Due to some ongoing technical difficulties we lost a good percentage of this weeks episode but I salvaged what I could. COVID is now claiming the production value of our beautiful podcast. The show must go on!

68: Backsies

Join Jono, Joe and Jase as the pre-order saga continues for another week. Urban Dictionary defines backsies as the act of retracting a prior statement, reversing the consequences of a previous action. Versus Player defines it as EB Games being a bunch of jerks.

64: X Not Gon’ Give It To Ya

Join Jono, Joe and Jase as they get angry about the next generation pre-order situation. Seriously, why is it so hard to give Microsoft and Sony our hard earned cash? I just want a new toy to play with…in saying that I don’t really know why I want one. I mean think about it right, there just isn’t anything coming out on release that’s worth playing. Sure I guess Cyberpunk would look real pretty with ray-tracing and all them teraflops but I could totally play it on my PC and it would look a whole lot better. For real there

Join Jase, Joe and Jono as we switch it up this week with the host. We test a new podcasting platform that goes a little bit wrong but hopefully you don’t notice!
