This week, we highlight what we've been paying in the form of Twin Breaker: A Sacred Symbols Adventure, as well as Matt's undying love for AC:Odyssey. Then it's off to the races, sort of, as we talk slowing down the PSN speeds, April's leaked PS PLUS games, and that PS5 will not be delayed apparently. Matt and Rob also cover the PS Drop, and some feel good news about CD Projekt Red.
As countries bare down under the brunt of Covid-19 one consumer friendly business seeks to remain open despite everyone's best interests. We talk about Gamestop being labeled as essential, and the underlying message being conveyed by their concern. It's also a great time to talk about tackling your backlog and what type of games to tackle as far as Matt is concerned. Sony and Cerny held a press conference that did, well just what we expected it to do. We cover the drop somewhere in there too as we see new releases coming digital as safe and sound as ever.
It's another week as we hunker down to stay indoors. Means plenty of time for gaming right? But have you ever wrestled with the desire to play, and then not play at all? We discuss for a bit how we struggle to play when we actually have time. We talk about our two picks for shorter games you can blow through in a sitting and try to predict whether or not we will see delays in the PS5, or even the games coming out. Rob and Matt try to parse through the potential possibilities. Finally, we cut to the chase on the PS Drop for the week; what games get to stay in the boat and stay afloat to play, what games are outta the boat?
Goodnight and Goodluck, or so it would seem to E3. With the Coronavirus running rampant around the L.A. area and across the world, it seems the world's biggest electronic expo is on the edge of extinction. We discuss whether or not this could be the end of E3 for good, and what happens if the show does not go on this year. WE spend some time highlighting Playstation Productions and what they could be cooking up beyond Twisted Metal, Uncharted, and the new Last of Us HBO series. There's a few other pieces of news we found worth investigating before we finally cover the PS blog and the now infamous drop of games.
It's been a weird 2020. First we got a bunch of game delays, then we hit issues with new consoles not being revealed, and now GDC has been cancelled with E3 still planning to forge ahead. Yet, where will this all lead? With health concerns abound, should these trade shows adopt a much simpler State of Play format? Would they lose out on money to great to succeed in such a format? And where does this leave PS5 devs? Should the supposed flash memory and potential console delay lead us down the path of considering a delay of consoles, and more devs adopt Square Enix's approach of staying on the PS4? Finally we briefly highlight how nice it has been to be able to tackle our backlogs, and look forward to the games coming out this week. It's all right here inside, so come on in!
It's a different kind of brew this week, as we speak not only the usual Playstation Blog and what we've been playing, but we cook up the homebrew/dev scene with EmeraldNova, a game developer for the Sega Saturn. We talk about the growth of the scene, how difficult it can be to homebrew, and what he sees as the future potential for Saturn and for himself as a developer.
It's that time of week as we hit up the news, discuss what properties Disney should developers tackle next, if Insomniac was a good get for the asking price Sony paid, and whether or not Division 2 is worth jumping in at it's ultimate low price on the PSN. Plus, we run down the PS Drop of new games for the week as well.
Loads of news this week surrounding games, surrounding stories, surrounding Xbox and Nintendo, and some competitor of theirs that is not Playstation, according to Phil Spencer. We discuss if this is true, what it means, and how we view it, along with other news from the week, the Playstation blog, and of course, what we've been playing.
In this penultimate episode (just kidding) we talk about games and bosses that really made us want to rage quit, highlight a few pieces of news in another slow past week in January for gaming, and re-imagine some of our favorite characters and franchises in a little game we call, What If? It's a packed week, and you get more bang for your buck than usual, so come on in kids.
