Ryan attempts to trick Jocelyn into bringing more TV content on to the show, but it doesn’t fly, so he settles for books. This week, Ryan brings the Ask Iwata book to the show, which includes interviews with the late Nintendo President Saturo Iwata. We offer our thoughts on whether Resident Evil Village is in our future, thanks to Ryan’s time with the demo. Finally, we close out What We’re Playing by closing the book on our return to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (for now). In the news, Microsoft commits to PC gaming with a few cool announcements, Mass Effect Legendary Edition is confirmed to have a large Day One patch, Sony invests in Discord for future partnerships with PlayStation, and a few high level details from the ongoing Epic vs Apple trial (like Sony’s insistence on being paid for cross-play and Metroid possibly coming to Fortnite).
We kick off the show with a story of saying goodbye to Ryan’s PlayStation 4 Pro. Then, as promised, we accept the challenge to return to Xenoblade Chronicles 2 on Nintendo Switch. You’re welcome Discord! Finally, we close out the show with the news, featuring a change to the weird Resident Evil Village demo schedule, Super Mario Party FINALLY gets more online support, and Former Dignitas and Houston Rockets execs launch Esports Certification Institute.
Jocelyn returns to the inn with a brand new 4v1 scary game called Home Sweet Home: Survive. Ryan on the other hand, tries another 99 battle royale game, this time featuring the lovely PAC-MAN. Also there’s a new episode of Mythic Quest available to bridge the gap between Season 1 and 2 (we swear this isn’t a TV podcast). In the news, the release of Days Gone on PC has us talking about that other Days Gone news, Luigi joins his brother in LEGO form this August, and Resident Evil has a lot of fun planned for their 25th anniversary.
Travis from Pixel Mountain Pop Art guests this week to bring Horizon Zero Dawn back on The Gamers’ Inn! And speaking of returns, Travis has been working his way through the mainline Final Fantasy games and goes over the Lightning Trilogy of Final Fantasy XIII. Ryan on the other hand is exploring Oddworld Soulstorm on PlayStation 5 thanks to PlayStation Plus this month. In the news, Bioware shows off their work on the new Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Aloy arrives in Fortnite (like everyone else not associated with Nintendo), and a new Jason Schreier report shares inside details from some of PlayStation’s internal studios.
