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!


Back 4 Blood (PS5)
4-player co-op zombie slaughter is back! The creators of Left 4 Dead have returned with a shiny new entry in the genre while keeping it fresh with a neatly balanced card system. A bit rough in single player but an unrivaled co-op shooter experience.
Hot Wheels Unleashed (PS5)
A fast-paced arcade racer with maximum nostalgia factor which is let down by loot boxes and a lack of variation in the tracks. Still good fun and great for kids but it disappointingly falls just short in a couple of areas.

FIFA 22 (PS5)
FIFA is back again, as always. While still being unequivocally the best soccer/football game available there isn't really anything too revolutionary about this iteration. Visually impressive, fun to play, but you could easily get by continuing with FIFA 21.

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.

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.
