S04E21: Sony and Microsoft’s Cloud Domination

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. Martin has consulted with FromSoftware on an unannounced project, GameStop is testing a new feature in their paid membership program, and we get a release date for the first installment in the Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan.

This week’s ‘Bonus Round’ is a lengthy discussion about the series finale of Game of Thrones, the series as a whole, and what future lies for the upcoming spinoffs and books.

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.

No Top 5 this week as we cover the latest Game of Thrones episode along with a long spoilercast about Avengers: Endgame and our thoughts on the overall state of the MCU.

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!

S04E17: More Collections and More Persona 5 (FIXED)



(Sorry, first version had issues that needed to be edited out.)

Ben is out with a cold and left us with not much news either! So we just have a lot of games to talk about! Mike played a bunch, including Rocket League, The Division 2, PUBG, Sekiro, Katamari Damacy, and Oxenfree. Jake has played Sekiro, Enter the Gungeon, and Metro Exodus.

News is fairy light, with the reveal of the remaining games in the Castlevania Anniversary Collection, the next 10 games coming to the SEGA Genesis Mini, and more details on Persona 5: The Royal.

S04E16: The PlayStation 5

Sekiro has nearly broken Mike, but he presses on, while Jake is basking in the glory of completing his first run of the game. Jake has also been spending more time with Enter the Gungeon, and Ben has fully dove into Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey.

News brings us a “home arcade console” from CAPCOM, Octopath Traveler coming to the PC, and a public test server being added to Division 2.

We have a long discussion about the recent article about the “next-gen” PlayStation and make our predictions about what that console will be.

S04E15: PSN Name Changes

Jake has been struck with the stomach bug so he left Mike and Ben to talk up Sekiro, a little bit of Enter the Gungeon and Black Ops 4, with even some recapping of WrestleMania 35.

News is quite light this week, with only the ability to change your PSN name going live for everyone, Persona 5 joining the “PlayStation Hits” list, and a date for the reveal of Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order.

For our Top 5, we pick the five hardest games we never finished!
