Game of Thrones might be over, but our game playing will live on forever! After some disappointing sessions with Rage 2, Mike went all-in and got re-addicted to Warframe. Ben continues his endless campaign of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, while sprinkling in some Cosmic Star Heroine and trying out Super Mega Baseball 2. Jake is also playing baseball, but in the vein of MLB The Show ’19, along with continuing another journey through Witcher 3.

Sony and Microsoft lead news this week with the announcement of a partnership relating to cloud-based gaming, Sony also announced a TV/film production company for their first-party franchises, George R.R.

S04E20: Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Game of Thrones

We went for quality over quantity this week as Mike spent nearly all of his time in the wastelands of Fallout 76, Ben is only a few hundred hours from completing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, while Jake is revisiting the lands of The Witcher 3 yet again.

For news we recap all the reveals from Sony’s State of Play, the imminent release of Dauntless, and the delay of the long-awaited Skull and Bones.

Instead of a Top 5 this week, we go deep on the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, including our thoughts on the recent trailer and what/when we should expect to see more of the game. We also recap the latest episode of Game of Thrones…it’s exactly the reaction you think it will be.

S04E19: EA Access on PS4, Endgame Spoilercast

We may be missing all the big announcements today, but we will make up for it by playing some games! Mike finished both Cuphead and the story in Mortal Kombat 11, Ben finished the campaign of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (but still has a ton of game left), and Jake kept very busy between Path of Exile, GTA V, Sekiro, and The Witcher 3.

In news we have the EA Access program finally coming to PS4 this summer, both Dead Cells and Apex Legends heading to mobile phones, Dead By Daylight accidentally leaking their next killer, Devil May Cry being ported to Switch, the next round of Nintendo Switch Online NES games, the arcade version of Ninja Gaiden coming to consoles, and Bethesda in hot water over plagiarism in their latest Elder Scrolls tabletop adventure.

S04E18: May PS+ Games

The gaming release rush seems to be hitting the slower point for the summer, but that certainly has not slowed us down (ok, maybe just a little bit). Jake has been spreading his time around Sekiro, GTA V, Path of Exile, and Rebel Galaxy. Mike is nearing the end of Cuphead, and just starting with Mortal Kombat 11. Ben is pressing on with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and rediscovering Overwatch.

News gives us our PS+ games for May, Epic’s acquisition of Rocket League, a new Kingdom Hearts 3 DLC, a Persona 5 musou game, new content for Black Ops 4 as well as Ghost Recon Wildlands, and a release date for Super Mario Maker 2.

In place of a Top 5 this week, we recap the 2019 NFL Draft!
