With Jocelyn now on leave as she awaits Baby Kearney, Ryan welcomes our first guest co-host Travis! Our main focus this episode is on Sea of Stars, a brand new RPG that launched across all platforms (and a few subscription services too). Before moving to the news, we chat about Extra Life and Travis’ brief adventures in Gotham Knights. We’ve got lots of news to discuss this week, kicking things off with an update from Unity and their terrible ideas, plus a huge trove of leaks from Microsoft (plus Phil’s response) on the updated Xbox Series X and Controller, the next Xbox, and a Bethesda release schedule.
We’ve got Starfield on the brain as both Jocelyn and Ryan have started their adventures in the Starfield. Before that we confirm that Jocelyn will be taking a bit of a break from TGI as she welcomes Baby Kearney into the world. But fret not, as Jocelyn Will Return, aiming for around Extra Life Game Day at the start of November. Look forward to awesome guest co-hosts over the coming weeks! Moving out of Starfield, Jocelyn updates us on Hearthstone and the latest Twist. Over the in the news, we’ve got Unity with egg on it’s face, and the latest Nintendo Direct and PlayStation State of Play.
Ryan and Jocelyn are ready to chat about Baldur’s Gate III as Jocelyn has now had a chance to play the game. We talk about the initial learning curve and talk through some of those early hurdles in the game. And yes, the Quick Save/Quick Load conversation pops up again. In the news, Nintendo hosted a Super Mario Bros Wonder Direct and may have shown the Switch 2 behind closed doors. Also Lenovo unveils another Steam Deck competitor and Saints Row developer Volition has been shutdown.
Yes, you read that correctly, Jocelyn watched Sonic 2 because of your awesome Extra Life donations in 2022. However, we didn’t record an audio commentary, as we figured a podcast discussion would be the most accessible way to hear Jocelyn’s journey through this SEGA epic. While we didn’t think we could talk about Sonic 2 for an hour, we sort of did… But fear not! We have a few video game news stories as well with the increase in price for PlayStation Plus tiers and the confirmation that Elder Scrolls 6 has entered early development.
