Far Cry: New Dawn (PS4)
A colourful reimagining of the Far Cry 5 world with enough uniqueness to make it worth playing. The weak story lets it down but New Dawn provides a world full of fun.
Awesome Pea (PS4)
A retro green monochromatic visual style is the main defining feature of this simple 2D platformer. Tight controls and challenging levels make it good to play but it doesn't bring anything special to the table.

Duration: 00:48:58 • Size: 22.42 MB

There’s a new member in the Drop Bear family! Matt’s son Oscar was born on the day the last episode of the podcast was posted. He’s a little too young to appear on the podcast right now (or even to play video games at all actually) but guess who isn’t too young? Matt & Lucas! That’s right, the guys are back once again and they bring tales of the Anthem demo weekends; Matt shares his thoughts on the Nintendo Switch (and Steam) twin-stick shooter Sleep Tight; and they just generally have a good old brotherly catch up. We hope you enjoy the show! Read more…

E3 2018 – EA Press Conference

Far Cry: New Dawn (PS4)
A colourful reimagining of the Far Cry 5 world with enough uniqueness to make it worth playing. The weak story lets it down but New Dawn provides a world full of fun.
Awesome Pea (PS4)
A retro green monochromatic visual style is the main defining feature of this simple 2D platformer. Tight controls and challenging levels make it good to play but it doesn't bring anything special to the table.
Pode (PS4)
A charming but short indie game which grows on you as you grow its world. Perfect for couch co-op with a friend but entirely enjoyable solo as well.
Anthem (PS4)
Despite initial worries based on the demo we were pleasantly surprised with Anthem. Technical glitches and crashes were common but the fun gameplay loop kept us going back. The future looks bright for this loot shooter.
Resident Evil 2 (PS4)
For a game that is 21 years old it holds up very well. Possibly the best remaster I've ever played.
Crackdown 3 (Xbox One)
This is a game that either should have been made a generation ago or not at all. Slow, easy, and lacking any heart or feeling.
Sleep Tight (Switch)
An imaginative twin-stick shooter/tower defense mash up which lets you finally test how well you could defend your bedroom if it was attacked by a swarm of boogey men!

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.
