Lucas also revisits NBA2k19 with a comparison between PS4 and Xbone. We hope you enjoy the show 🙂 Read more…

Mortal Kombat 11 (PS4)
Incredible combat and another excellent MK storyline shine bright in the latest entry in the franchise but a heavy microtransaction focus bloats and overshadows what would otherwise be a brilliant game.
Days Gone (PS4)
With only a few things to set this apart from other zombie shooters Days Gone falls a little short. While it has plenty of content, it tends to be a little repetitive and uninspired but it definitely has its moments.

Days Gone (PS4)
With only a few things to set this apart from other zombie shooters Days Gone falls a little short. While it has plenty of content, it tends to be a little repetitive and uninspired but it definitely has its moments.
NBA2k19 (Xbox One)
A stronger focus on the in-game currency disappoints while the extended story mode seems to drag on with cut scenes, however it's still the best NBA game out there and plays really well.
FIFA 19 (PS4)
An expanded story mode with The Journey combined with big updates to the Kick-Off mode make this a great new entry in the series. Addition of the Champions League as well adds to the authentic feel of FIFA, and gives more ways to play.
Marvel's Spider-Man (PS4)
Some dated gameplay mechanics, repetitive side stuff, and some pacing problems take a little bit away from this game but the combat and traversal mechanics are so refined that it is incredibly fun to play. Combine that with an exceptional story and you have a definite winner which is well worth playing.
Flipping Death (PS4)
Light hearted and very well written with a distinctive art style. The length of the game is just right to leave you satisfied and the jokes throughout make it a bloody fun experience!
Guacamelee 2 (PS4)
Drinkbox Studios return with a sequel which expands upon the brilliance of the original game. Brilliant level design, extra powers, more chickens, and four player co-op make this an absolute must-have.

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.
