It’s that time of year again where the sports games start dropping their annual releases. On this episode of the DBG podcast Lucas gives his review of the micro-transaction heavy NBA2K20 while Matt let’s us know what’s new in FIFA 20. Matt also reviews Ni No Kuni: Wrath Of The White Witch Remastered, the guys review Borderlands 3, and finally they share their first impressions of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint. We hope you enjoy the show 🙂


NBA 2K20 (PS4)
This year's NBA2K must stand for Need Bank Account 2 Kontinue as parasitic micro-transaction systems ruin a great game. The Best part of this game is the addition of a very well rounded and perfectly executed WNBA game mode.
FIFA 20 (PS4)
Although the campaign mode after the end of the Hunter trilogy last year is noticeably missing, a fully fledged Volta Football mode does fill the gap. Some big changes on a gameplay level shake things up and new additions to FUT flesh out that game mode.

Ni No Kuni Remastered (PS4)
Although this remaster is purely a graphical upgrade the game itself is still as charming and fun as ever. A magical fantasy world and a well written story make this game a pure delight to play even on the second time around.

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.
