Duration: 01:07:15 • Size: 30.79 MB

Matt and Lucas are back and they have games to talk about! Lucas has been playing NBA2k19 and Matt has been playing FIFA 19 so they share their thoughts on those games, and then they discuss the massive PS4 exclusive game Marvel’s Spider-Man. Read more…

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.

Another episode so soon? Yes dear listeners, because the new PS4 exclusive from Quantic Dream “Detroit: Become Human” released on Friday and didn’t want to make you wait to hear what we thought of it.

Lucas & Matt were joined once again by Karl (aka The Lyrical) from the Game Train Podcast for this episode to discuss the new Detroit: Become Human demo and of course the new massive exclusive for PlayStation – God Of War. This episode is a little long since the guys got a bit carried away about how much they enjoyed God Of War so grab a nice warm drink, make sure you are comfortable, relax, and enjoy the show.

We are back with another episode of the DBG Podcast and although Matt didn’t set up the recording equipment correctly it’s still a good show!

Episode 118 – Eating Up Their Bottom Lines
Duration: 01:18:34 • Size: 35.97 MB

Matt and Lucas are back with the second last episode for 2017! To start the show they reflect upon the turn of events in the industry following the discussion of micro transactions on the last episode, which I’m sure we can all agree played a major part in getting the loot box discussion happening around the world (Hi to our listeners in the Belgian government!).

Next up Matt shares his thoughts on South Park: The Fractured But Whole and some PlayLink games, Lucas shares his review of NBA2K18, then Matt follows up with reviews of Ben 10, LA Noire remastered, and Need For Speed Payback. Enjoy the show and look out for our GOTY episode coming up later this month! Read more…

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.
Detroit: Become Human (PS4)
Another visually stunning Quantic Dream game with all the usual stuff that comes with that. Slightly finicky controls hold this game back a little, but a really well crafted story and world with meaningful game-defining decisions and superb voice acting make it a must play game.
Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (PS4)
Hits the usual beats of an Uncharted game which while not new, are still great to experience. The dialogue between Chloe and Nadine and the story overall was really well written. Naughty Dog have proven that they can make a solid Uncharted game without Nathan Drake.
Destiny 2 (PS4)
Despite having so many similarities to Destiny 1 this game has enough new features to entice old players to get on board. It's definitely just as fun as the original and a great multiplayer experience to enjoy with friends.

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

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.
