New Game Plus Season 4 Poll Are Open!

No matter what you vote for
 we are all going to play an amazing game
Sorry the blog has been sort of quiet lately, my day job has been doing its best to work me to death. I won't let that me from writing about what I love and that is playing games with friends. So what better way to celebrate that then voting for season 4 of New Game Plus on What is New Game Plus you ask? Well here is a wonderful description of it by the Community Manager of GU Chloe:

"New Game Plus is similar to a bookclub, but instead of reading books each week community members are given a set checkpoint in an ongoing game which they have to reach before the end of 7 days. While all playing the same part of the same game, Unionites gather to discuss what we're loving and hating about the game, how funny the dialogue is, or how remarkably brilliant the game design was. All conversation is valid and in face encouraged! The only requisite of the feature is that everyone is playing the same section at the same time and join in the conversation! There's no plus to just playing on your own!"

 The past 3 seasons of NGP have seen many different types of games. Season 1 had everyone sneaking back into Metal Gear Solid, Season 2 summoned everyone back to Final Fantasy, and Season 3 saw everyone hiking their way through Tomb Raider Legend.

Season 4 is about to begin, but first we need to pick a game. This Seasons games the community has suggested to play the most are
  • Pokemon (1st Gen) - Gameboy
  • Valkyria Chronicles - PlayStation 3
  • Catherine - PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
  • Legend of Zelda - NES, Gamecube, GameBoy Advance, Virtual Console, Eshop

So whether this is your first time playing one of these game or you are a long time fan, there is no reason why you shouldn't join the Gaming Union community (if you haven't already click here).

I also run the officially unofficial podcast for NGP called New Game Podcast. So each week of NGP me and others in the community who played, talk about our experiences. This is a totally unscripted podcast where we go through the basics of what we played that week, answer questions, and get off topic. So if you are interested in supporting our other podcast please be sure to check them out.

On a bit of news for The Persona Podcast, we will most likely record episode 2 sometime this week and I will get it uploaded as soon as I can. Don't forget to send in your questions for the podcast in the forums or on our official twitter.
