It has been two weeks since the release of The Last Of Us Part 2 and so it seems like it’s about time to have a spoiler chat!

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though because there has been other stuff happening during the last two weeks. First up on this episode Matt shares his reviews of Desperados 3 and Minecraft Dungeons then the guys have a brief chat about some of the bigger gaming news from the past fortnight as the time when E3 would have happened came and went.

Once that is all out of the way Lucas and Matt take a deep dive into The Last Of Us Part 2, expanding upon their review from the previous episode as well as sharing their spoiler-filled thoughts on the story of the game. There is a spoiler warning before that part of the podcast begins so if you haven’t played or finished the game yet and want to avoid it you need not worry about getting anything ruined!

We hope you enjoy the show and would love to hear what you guys thought of The Last Of Us Part 2 as well (via email or private message if you have spoilers :D) Read more…

Desperados 3 (PS4)
A great new entry in an almost forgotten franchise. This classic Western story of revenge is one of the best stealth real time tactics game out there. With unique characters and a challenging levels combined with great replayability it's definitely worth picking up for fans of the genre.
Minecraft Dungeons (PS4)
Diablo for kids! This is a great dialled down version of the classic loot hunting in Diablo with a good selection of level environments and a flexible difficulty rating system to provide continued challenge. The 4-player co-op is particular handy for gaming with the kids.

Ahh yes, the craziness of E3 has come and gone for another year and it has left us with a whole bunch of great games to look forward to and some pretty excellent talking points.

E3 2018 – PlayStation Press Conference

The award for most bizarre E3 press conference of the year goes to PlayStation! Yes I know, Nintendo haven’t done theirs yet but I think PlayStation have taken the cake already. If you look past the ridiculously long “intermission” in the middle of the show they actually had some really quality stuff to show including a whole bunch of gameplay Read more…

 
Desperados 3 (PS4)
A great new entry in an almost forgotten franchise. This classic Western story of revenge is one of the best stealth real time tactics game out there. With unique characters and a challenging levels combined with great replayability it's definitely worth picking up for fans of the genre.
Minecraft Dungeons (PS4)

The Last Of Us Part 2 (PS4)
Stalking infected in this sequel feels just as good as the original and incredible visuals and perfect voice performances make this game a real must-play. The slightly disjointed story unfortunately fails to live up to the quality of the first game despite the pedigree of the developer but it's still one of the best games of the generation.
Saints Row The Third Remastered (PS4)
A remaster of a 9 year old game so it’s not particularly outstanding but a great opportunity to revisit a really fun game. Dumb fun, but fun nonetheless. The ridiculousness of SR3 is a nice escape from the upheaval in the world at the moment.
Mafia 2 Remastered (PS4)
Making a port of the PC version of Mafia 2 rather than remastering the console version has left us with a pretty poor port riddled with bugs and glitches. Although the fun game and really great story are intact the technical issues really detract from the experience.
Maneater (PS4)
Think GTA but you’re a shark. A bit rough around the edges but quite enjoyable and a fresh new experience since we haven't played an open world shark game before. Chris Parnell's narration really is a highlight of the game as it turns this aquatic slaughterfest into a fun and educational experience.

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.

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.
