It’s that time of the year again! The start of June brings around E3 and that means a whole bunch of game announcements and news and of course the DBG Annual E3 Extravaganza!!! Before the Extravaganza could begin on this episode though Matt & Lucas had to get a few reviews out of the way. First up the guys share their thoughts on Mass Effect: Legendary Edition before diving into the shiny new PS5 exclusive Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart. With the reviews out of the way the guys ran through their highlights from all of the E3 announcements which mostly came from Xbox (about time!). We hope you enjoy the show!

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (PS5)
Stunning graphics harnessing the power of the PS5 make the latest entry in the R&C franchise a real showcase for the system. The charming story and huge variety of weapons keep players hooked but unfortunately under-utilised gameplay mechanics, the short game-length, and a lack of replayability make this game a hard sell at it's high launch price.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition (PS4)
Collecting the Shepard trilogy along with all of its DLC into one package makes the Legendary Edition a must have for fans of the series as well as a great all-in-one purchase for new players. A fresh coat of paint and some quality of life changes definitely improve the game but the game-universe and the epic story are brilliant regardless of that.

WonderBoy: Asha In Monster World (PS4)
A remake/remaster of a classic mid-90s platformer, Asha In Monster World looks really great and is a fine nostalgia trip but it is let down by out-dated controls and gameplay mechanics which fail to stand up to modern standards.
