The guys continue through their backlog of game reviews this week as well as discussing more about the PS5 pre-orders. Lucas gets nostalgic with Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2, and tries something new with Immortal Realms: Vampire Wars; and Matt gets a taste of what’s to come from Xbox’s acquisition of InXile with Wasteland 3, and runs through Crystal Dynamic’s expansive new superhero game Marvel’s Avengers. Matt also gets to revisit one of his favourite games with THQ Nordic’s Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. We hope you enjoy the show!


Wasteland 3 (PS4)
An excellent post-apocalyptic CRPG from InXile. The combination of classic CRPG with XCOM-style combat is really enjoyable and the dialogue, voice acting, and story-line keep it fresh throughout. Innovative RPG systems make this a really great game to experience, especially on console. Absolutely recommend.
Marvel's Avengers (PS4)
Crystal Dynamics have aimed for Destiny but landed at Anthem with this confused game which doesn't quite know what it wants to be. The classic comic book style plot and well acted characters are definitely the highlight of this game, as well as a bunch of fan service. Unfortunately a hodge podge of Games As A Service systems detract from the genuinely fun single player campaign.

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 (PS4)
If you haven't played this remake of the iconic skater game, get off your butt and do it now! This game nails every aspect of fun on a console. Perfect for jump in & out gaming, local and online multiplayer and park building. It's just gnarly man!

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.
