Well it has been a huge few weeks in the gaming industry since we recorded last. Microsoft acquired Activision Blizzard for US$69 billion, Sony acquired Bungie for US$3.6 billion and both have said they have more to come. On this episode of the DBG podcast Matt & Lucas share their thoughts on those two moves as well as what could be next. After that chat they discuss some of the biggest non-acquisition news from the industry as well as sharing their reviews of Uncharted: Legacy Of Thieves, Guardians of the Galaxy, and a little about Pokemon Legends Arceus. We hope you enjoy the show!


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.

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.

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.
