Episode 130 – Ark Detecting
Duration: 00:47:07 • Size: 21.58 MB

Lucas has something special for us all on this episode, a hardware review for a change! He got the chance to try out the new ModMic 5 microphone which is a pretty nifty little piece of kit.

They close out the show discussing new Xbox rumours and the future of consoles. Read more…

The Crew 2 (PS4)
The stunning visuals and robust vehicle performance upgrade system can't save this game from it's repetitive and shallow gameplay. Hopefully future updates will improve the game but right now it's underwhelming.
Unravel Two (PC)
While not quite managing the same level of charm as the first game, this sequel brings much needed improvement to the platforming mechanics. Not as challenging as we'd like but the addition of co-op is a great move. A lot of fun with impressive visuals.

E3 2018 – PlayStation Press Conference

The award for most bizarre E3 press conference of the year goes to PlayStation! Yes I know, Nintendo haven’t done theirs yet but I think PlayStation have taken the cake already. If you look past the ridiculously long “intermission” in the middle of the show they actually had some really quality stuff to show including a whole bunch of gameplay. Read more…

E3 2018 – Microsoft Press Conference

Rainbow Skies (PS4)
A great classic style tactical RPG with cross-play across PS3, PS4, and Vita. While it can be a little uninspired in places it's still a solid game and great for fans of the genre.
Moonlighter (PS4)
A great little indie title which manages to mix a RPG and a store management sim into one charming little game. With rogue-lite style dungeon crawling by night and surprisingly engrossing shop-keeping during the day this game is definitely worth a look.

Lucas
The Podfather/Convo Controller
Super salesman by day, Batdad and Gamersutra by night. As a self-confessed technology pacifist, he prefers to sit on the console-war fence and play games on his PC.
Matt
PlayStation Fanboy/Motormouth
Electrician by trade and yet also highly skilled at finding time to game around work and family commitments. A PlayStation fanboy with a platinum count and obvious podcast bias to prove it. Thinks DC is clearly superior to Marvel. Has been known to rant.
