Dust off those headphones fellow Drop Bears because Matt & Lucas have returned from the shadows to bring you some fresh DBG podcast content! After a couple of months away the guys bring news of Xbox leaks, PlayStation peripherals, lay-offs, game reveals, and much more. The review backlog has been stacking up while the guys were away as well so on this episode they share their thoughts on the puzzle-platformer delight that is Viewfinder, Immortals of Aveum, Red Dead Redemption on Switch and PS4 (finally!) and NBA2K24. We are glad to be back and we hope you enjoy the show! Read more…

NBA2K24 (PS5)
NBA2K24 promised a focus on the game, so instead of starting in the draft or earlier you begin your journey in the centre of the court as a team starter. The gameplay and graphics as expected on the PS5, are amazing, but the game is let down by character progression which is even more heavily skewed towards microtransactions for success than usual.
Red Dead Redemption (Switch)
13 years later and the original Red Dead Redemption is still one of the best games ever made. Although this release is only a port of the original rather than a remaster it is wonderful to be able to play on a handheld, not to mention being able to finally play it on a PS4/PS5.

2010 – The Good, The Bad, The Ugly, The Bold and The Beautiful

So like most people, I rang in the New Year with fervor. A few drinks, a few laughs with friends, and a reflection on the year that was. During the reflection, we remembered our trials and tribulations, our defining moments of that year and the things we’d rather forget. Well gamers, I think we owe it to ourselves to also reflect on what was an interesting year for the gaming industry. Read more…

 
NBA2K24 (PS5)
NBA2K24 promised a focus on the game, so instead of starting in the draft or earlier you begin your journey in the centre of the court as a team starter. The gameplay and graphics as expected on the PS5, are amazing, but the game is let down by character progression which is even more heavily skewed towards microtransactions for success than usual.
Red Dead Redemption (Switch)
13 years later and the original Red Dead Redemption is still one of the best games ever made. Although this release is only a port of the original rather than a remaster it is wonderful to be able to play on a handheld, not to mention being able to finally play it on a PS4/PS5.
Viewfinder (PS5)
One of the freshest puzzle-platformer experiences since Portal. Inventive level design and innovative use of perspective and optical trickery make this a fantastic experience from start to finish, despite a mostly lacklustre story.
Immortals of Aveum (PS5)
An entertaining first-person magic shooter with surprisingly robust gameplay, interesting puzzles, and some excellent set pieces. Immortals of Aveum is a lot of fun despite some lack of polish and a cliched story.

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.
