Latest Podcast: Episode 196 – (Non)E3 2022 Extravaganza!
Episode 196 – (Non)E3 2022 Extravaganza!
Duration: 01:09:20 • Size: 31.75 MB

It’s that time of year again! June, the historic month for game companies to reveal their secrets. This year there is officially no E3 but the Summer Games Fest has filled in the gap as best they could despite most of the big publishers opting out of June (or maybe opting out of 2022 altogether?). Either way Matt & Lucas are here to talk about what was shown so lucky you! The guys also review TMNT Shredder’s Revenge and The Quarry as well just for funsies. We hope you enjoy the show!

The Quarry (PS5)
The Quarry is an interactive horror movie/game from Supermassive Games. QuickTime events put you in control of the fate of a great cast of teens, as you try your best to keep them alive. More sitting around watching cut-scenes than interacting, but it will keep you entertained for a few hours.
TMNT: Shredder's Revenge (PS5)
A perfect recreation of classic arcade games and overflowing with nostalgia for us oldies who were fans of the cartoons and movies. Couch co-op works perfectly and the controls are fluid and responsive, what more could you ask for?

On this episode of the DBG podcast Matt & Lucas share their thoughts on those two moves as well as what could be next.

Episode 190 – Dropicron Variant
Duration: 01:05:59 • Size: 30.21 MB

52 days without a podcast! It’s crazy what the holiday season mixed with a sprinkling of COVID-19 can do to podcasting plans, but Matt & Lucas are finally back! Normally by this time of the year we would have thrown down a Game Of The Year EXTRAVAGANZA and an episode about what we are looking forward to for the new year, but since we are behind schedule we decided to just roll them into one. We are so glad to be back and able to share another episode of the DBG podcast with you all and we hope you didn’t miss us too much đŸ˜€ Enjoy the show! Read more…

Episode 188 – Nostalging
Duration: 00:45:04 • Size: 20.64 MB

No more delays! Episode 188 is overdue so we better get it bloody posted. Instead of cleverly using the quiet times to take long breaks between episodes Matt & Lucas decided to wait until every game came out, so the review backlog is stacking up. Have no fear though, they will get through it all starting with this very episode! After a quick look at some news the guys jump into reviews of Diablo 2 Resurrected, FIFA 22, Hot Wheels Unleashed, and then close out the show with their thoughts on Back 4 Blood. Sorry about the wait but we hope you enjoy the show! Read more…

Episode 187 – Murder On The Podfloor
Duration: 01:14:41 • Size: 34.2 MB

A week and a half after being recorded episode 187 is finally uploaded! Yay! Matt & Lucas recorded this one right before Matt went on holiday for a week so not much was happening in the editing department but your patience has been rewarded dear listeners! On this belated episode the guys make a bunch of date references which have now all passed as they discuss their thoughts on Deathloop, NBA2K21, and some news which is now old news. We hope you enjoy the show!

 
The Quarry (PS5)
The Quarry is an interactive horror movie/game from Supermassive Games. QuickTime events put you in control of the fate of a great cast of teens, as you try your best to keep them alive. More sitting around watching cut-scenes than interacting, but it will keep you entertained for a few hours.
TMNT: Shredder's Revenge (PS5)
A perfect recreation of classic arcade games and overflowing with nostalgia for us oldies who were fans of the cartoons and movies. Couch co-op works perfectly and the controls are fluid and responsive, what more could you ask for?
Chernobylite (PS5)
Chernobylite is an Action RPG with shooter elements, some team management and base building elements - a pseudo-horror game set in the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. That's just the start, Chernobyllite is fun, has lots of depth and replayability.
LEGO Star Wars Skywalker Saga (PS5)
TT Games have brought their best work to this celebration of Star Wars history. All nine of the Skywalker Star Wars movies combined in LEGO glory. This is truly a nostalgic trip while also being the best LEGO game ever made.
Horizon Forbidden West (PS5)
Horizon Forbidden West combines a huge open world with stellar voice acting performances and some of the most impressive graphics to be seen in video games yet. An absolutely breathtaking game which is only let down by some repetitive quest design and frustrating platforming.
Dying Light 2 (PS5)
Dying Light 2 Stay Human drops you into a huge open world filled with more zombies than friends. The slow start is worth persevering with, because once the world and story really opens up you'll marvel at its sheer grandeur. Some of the best gaming parkour moments await while you traverse the well designed and filled-to-the-brim landscape.
Guardians of the Galaxy (PS5)
Eidos-Montréal and Square Enix delivered a save the universe size story fitting only of the Guardians of the Galaxy. The banter, fighting and grandiose nature of the plot is matched at every twist and turn by the well fleshed out and perfectly executed character driven stories. A gem of a game that offers much to fans of the comic book, MCU and superhero games alike. 4.5/5
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves (PS5)
It hasn't been long since the two remastered games in this collection first came out on PS4, however they are still incredible. Uncharted 4 remains one of the best fan service end of an era games I've ever played, while Lost Legacy answered the question of whether Uncharted would work without Nathan Drake with a resounding yes. This remaster brings updated graphics and effects but most importantly it does away with load times. Definitely recommend.
Skyrim: Anniversary Edition (PS5)
It's the same Skyrim we've seen for ten years but in a nice new gen skin with a bunch of added content rolled in. If you haven't ever played Skyrim then this is absolutely the definitive edition, and even if you have played it before then why not jump in again?
Far Cry 6 (PS5)
Ubisoft have continued with the formula they seem to have followed since Far Cry 3. In this latest entry in the franchise you can expect a few new weapons, a new location, another dictator to overthrow and people that need your special killing skills to save them.
