We are closing in on the dates when E3 2020 would have been happening if it wasn’t for that pesky coronavirus so that means developers and publishers are starting to trickle out some tasty news morsels. On this episode of the show Matt & Lucas discuss Sekiro, Assassin’s Creed 3 on Switch, a new bluetooth dongle peripheral for the switch, and then dive into some of the news and announcements from the past two weeks including remasters of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 and the Mafia Trilogy, the Unreal Engine 5 gameplay demo, Ghost Of Tsushima gameplay demo, PS5/Xbox Series X pricing and release date rumours and much much more! We hope you enjoy the show 🙂 Read more…

DOOM Eternal (PS4)
With Earth overrun by demons who you gonna call? A grunting Doom Slayer to rip, tear, and disembowel along his way to free the planet. DOOM Eternal shoots, chainsaws, punches, and totally kicks ass!
Pillars Of Eternity II: Deadfire (PS4)
Exceptional writing and great improvements to combat and overall game mechanics compared to it's predecessor are let down by offensively long and annoying common load times. An incredible RPG which has been ported to consoles poorly.

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.
