Duration: 01:14:07 • Size: 33.94 MB

Believe it or not, Drop Bear Gaming has made it to 150 episodes!

On this episode Matt & Lucas reviewed Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint and then discussed it’s reception in the market and Ubisoft’s decision to delay some upcoming games. Next up Matt reviewed PS4 exclusives Concrete Genie and the MediEvil remaster before the guys discussed first impressions of The Outer Worlds and Call Of Duty Modern Warfare. We hope you enjoy the show and we are looking forward to bringing the next 150 episodes to you 🙂 Read more…

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint (PS4)
Despite some big changes from Wildlands this sequel doesn't quite manage to differentiate itself in a crowded market. While still an immensely fun game with a strong story, it is another Ubisoft 4-person co-op shooter by numbers.
Concrete Genie (PS4)
What starts off as a beautiful and unique experience loses it's way fairly early into this short game. While still managing to be a charming game throughout, the painting mechanics aren't quite nuanced enough to hold up for the journey through. A disjointed combat mechanic thrown in mid-way doesn't help either.

MediEvil (PS4)
A loving coat of fresh paint gives this PSone classic a new life on the PS4. While it still has some of the quirks of PSone gaming it is still great to nostalgically revisit the epic story of Sir Daniel Fortesque.
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.
Borderlands 3 (PS4)
A lackluster script which tries to be funny but falls flat at every turn combines with average shooting and repetitive level design to make Borderlands 3 a pale imitation of the games which came before it.
