Duration: 01:11:47 • Size: 32.87 MB

After a 6-week hiatus thanks to the planning and execution of a wedding and honeymoon followed by a COVID lockdown Matt & Lucas are finally back with another episode of the DBG podcast!! On this show the guys catch up on some of the biggest news and discuss whether or not brick and mortar gaming events are still worth doing. Matt also reviews Starbase Startopia and the joyfully excellent new co-op game from Hazelight & EA: It Takes Two. We are glad to be back and we hope you enjoy the show! Read more…

It Takes Two (PS5)
An absolute rollercoaster of a game. Every level is unique in theme and gameplay mechanics while still maintaining a coherent game which doesn't feel overwhelming or too busy. The story is compelling while offering great fun for the co-op partners who play. A must play for anyone looking for great a co-op game. Hazelight have nailed it.
Starbase Startopia (PS5)
We've come to expect great games from Kalypso Media but unfortunately this one is only a middling sim/strategy game. Startopia is competent in the necessary areas but it's nothing special and it's lacking in the overall depth required from the genre. Disappointing.

E3 2018 – PlayStation Press Conference

The award for most bizarre E3 press conference of the year goes to PlayStation! Yes I know, Nintendo haven’t done theirs yet but I think PlayStation have taken the cake already. If you look past the ridiculously long “intermission” in the middle of the show they actually had some really quality stuff to show including a whole bunch of gameplay Read more…

E3 2018 – Ubisoft Press Conference

Ubisoft opened a packed press conference in their usual style with a live performance for Just Dance 2019. Once they got that out of their system it was time for a non-stop flow of new trailers and gameplay footage for some of the best looking and most anticipated upcoming games. Read more…

E3 2018 – Microsoft Press Conference

Well my oh my. Microsoft certainly brought their A-game today with their press conference. On the back of some pretty weak exclusives recently, we had been asking what Microsoft have coming up to keep them competitive and I think we can safely say they delivered. Read more…

Xbox One Lost The Battle, Has Playstation 4 Won The War?

Over the past twenty four hours or so, I have seen increasing numbers of tweets, Facebook updates, memes and articles showing a growth spurt in supporting the Playstation 4 being the next gen console of choice – even from folks I have  known to be the Xbox faithful’s in my inner gaming circle.  While I am all for the preferential choice of platforms, and have tried to maintain neutrality between the two choices, I am wondering if I will be the only one with an Xbox One.

Moonlighter (PS4)
A great little indie title which manages to mix a RPG and a store management sim into one charming little game. With rogue-lite style dungeon crawling by night and surprisingly engrossing shop-keeping during the day this game is definitely worth a look.

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.
