Jocelyn is off this week, but Ryan welcomes back Josh (BabylonRedeemer) to the show to discuss the latest entry in the Xenoblade Chronicles franchise on Nintendo Switch. After a spoiler free deep dive into the first few chapters of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, we move over to the news to discuss the second wave of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC, Backbone One receives a PlayStation look and feel, and Logitech announces their intention to create a cloud gaming handheld with Tencent.
As Jocelyn is on vacation, Ryan welcomes Dustin TriplePhase3 back on to the show to discuss the latest in Xbox Game Pass greats: As Dusk Falls. Dustin has also been relaxing with rhythm based game Aaero on Xbox, after needed a break from the latest Dead by Daylight update. Ryan however, re-enters the world of VR to check in after getting his hands on Moss Book II (more on that specific game next week). In the news, the Meta Quest 2 will be seeing a $100 increase in August, the Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic remake may be indefinite hold, and Discord voice chat is arriving on Xbox very soon.
Jocelyn and Ryan team up and return to The Quarry for some online co-op. Plus both innkeepers have watched the first few episodes of Resident Evil on Netflix. Moving over to the news, Dynamo Pictures will evolve into Nintendo Pictures after being acquired, and PlayStation to launch their own loyalty program to catch up with Xbox and Nintendo.
We kick off the show to wish Jocelyn a happy birthday (which is the date of posting if you’re listening day one). Then Ryan catches up on a five year old gem, Hollow Knight. Wrapping up our games conversation, Jocelyn checked out The Quarry. In the news, SEGA announces the Genesis Mini 2, Blizzard puts Heroes of the Storm in maintenance mode, Nintendo and LEGO unveil a very expensive Bowser set, and Ubisoft re-reveals Skull and Bones.
