Monday night is here and it's time for The SML Podcast, Episode 117: Gratuitous Gamescom Gaudiness, here on Bleeding Cool!
Gamescom happened in Germany this week and with it came a press event by Microsoft that made some jaws drop with their videos and demos from Scalebound, Quantum Break, and Crackdown 3, which has officially raised the bar when it comes to in game destructible environments. So yeah, we talk about it.
We also cover other news and events including Xbox One backwards compatibility and Windows 10 dates, Rare Replay releasing, comparisons of transferring data between hard drives between consoles, the best game setup to have at home (if you're stuck with not getting all the systems), and the usual chatter of what we are playing.
If that doesn't work for you, you can check us out on iTunes and subscribe to us and get the final episodes a few days early and check out our past two years of shows!
To celebrate the release of Rare Replay, we have a massive batch of Rare tracks including songs from Killer Instinct, Banjo-Kazooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and Blast Corps., ALL of which are available on Rare Replay along with 26 other games. Needless to say we all like Rare Replay.
Atlas Plug & Celldweller – Rash's Trailer (Killer Instinct)
Blast Corps – Glory Crossing
Guifrog – Bulls N' Beers (Conker's Bad Fur Day)
Nekofrog & Sole Signal – Malevolent Mansion (Banjo-Kazooie)
Kris Huber – That Burning Sensation (Killer Instinct)
Blast Corps – Skerries
OA – Wallachian Prince (Banjo Kazooie)

Thanks for checking us out and we'll see you next week, perhaps!
