Defense Grid 2 - Hex19 Playdate


Defense Grid: Awakening has been called the "best tower defense game of all time" by some of the Hex19 staff. We were very excited when the sequel was released earlier this month - Defense Grid 2. In this video, Aaron and Yuri take a first stab at DG Coordinated Defense, a new multiplayer mode where two people must work together to defend their cores. Glenn Meyer also joins in with commentary. Thanks for watching!

Forza Horizon 2 - Hex19 Playdate


In the latest Hex19 Playdate, Glenn Meyer takes Forza Horizon 2 for a spin on the Xbox One.

Yuri and Aaron are also present on commentary. Thank you so much for watching. If you want to support us, it would help immensely if you subscribed to our YouTube channel!

NHL 15 Calgary vs. ...Canada? - Hex19 Playdate


Hex19's Glenn, Brett and Yuri take control of Team Canada and face off against the Calgary Flames in an untraditional NHL 15 matchup. Watch as they work together to bring some pain to Alberta's most hated city. The results are, well, unexpected. Again, this NHL video was plauged by some audio issues - we hope it doesn't diminish your enjoyment of the coolest sport on earth.

NHL 15 Ducks vs. Oilers - Hex19 Playdate


Hex19's Brett Commandeur and the Edmonton Oilers take on Glenn Meyer and the no longer mighty Ducks of Anaheim in NHL 15 on the Xbox One. Yuri Walkiw chimes in with some color commentary. We ran into some audio issues with our recording software while doing some NHL 15 videos, so the audio quality isn't quite at the level we want it. We promise improvements for future playdates!

Forza Motorsport 5 Stupidity - Hex19 Playdate

The Forza Motorsport series has always prided itself on bringing gamers high intensity racing at incredible speeds. On this edition of the Hex19 Playdate we challenge that notion with an outlandishly difficult game variation - no assists, simulation damage and fully manual transmission. Glenn and Yuri struggle through a single lap showdown at Mazda's Laguna Seca raceway in some of Forza Motorsport's 5 most advanced vehicles. The results are sort of pathetic, but we think you'll enjoy it nonetheless. Thanks for watching!
