Episode 219 – Apocalypse Here
Duration: 1:05:05 • Size: 44.7 MB

We’ve got an end times theme for this episode as the guys discuss the new Fallout TV series and Matt reviews the Aussie-made RPG “Broken Roads” (from Melbourne-based developer Drop Bear Bytes – no relation!). The guys close out the episode with a non-end times related review of Rise of the Ronin. We hope you enjoy the show! Read more…

Broken Roads (PS5)
This post-apocalyptic RPG set in the outback of Western Australia has a beautiful art style and slang-filled dialogue which really captures the sunburnt country. The story and characters are well written but inconsistencies with voice over and some pacing problems let the game down in places.
Rise of the Ronin (PS5)
Rise of the Ronin is the latest Ubisoft-style, open world game. Team Ninja looked to separate this from other games in the genre by peppering in a healthy dose of Japanese history and samurai gameplay. It ticks many boxes with it's long list of collectibles and side missions, but doesn't quite reach the heights of many other games in the genre.
