Oh glorious day! We finally know the important details for both of the next gen consoles! On this episode Matt & Lucas discuss the pricing and release dates for the Xbox Series X and the PS5 as well as everything shown during the PS5 Showcase yesterday. Once they got all of that goodness out of the way the guys reviewed EA Sports UFC 4, Pathfinder: Kingmaker, NBA2K21, and PGA2K21. We hope you enjoy the show!


UFC 4 (PS4)
Historically each release of EA Sports UFC gets a little better than the last and this is no exception. The removal of last years Ultimate Team addition is a surprisingly welcome move, while stand up fighting has been further refined. Ground work is still a little sketchy but overall this is the best MMA video game experience you will find.
Pathfinder: Kingmaker (PS4)
The curse of CRPGs on consoles strikes again with this otherwise excellent video game version of the Pathfinder tabletop RPG. The dreaded load screen mars what is otherwise a quite well rounded and fun RPG experience. The addition of the robust Kingdom Management system provides a nice challenge alongside the classic isometric RPG gameplay.

PGA2K21 (PS4)
The precision of The Golf Club franchise shines as usual in this next entry of the series. Added accessibility via expanded difficulty options opens up the game to more casual players while still satisfying the more serious golf lovers. The partnership with 2K has led to a bit more gamification of the game outside of playing actual golf but the core that makes The Golf Club games great remains, including the excellent course design system.
