We begin the show by going over our plans for the Sea of Thieves and Pirates crossover, because you never play a live game on the first day of a big content drop. After ranking the Pirates of the Caribbean films, Ryan chats about his time with the Summer Game Fest and Steam Next Fest demo events. On the Xbox side, Ryan checked out the fantastic Tunic, as well as Deathtrap Dungeon, Sable, and Lake. On the Steam side, Ryan loved bringing nature back to the wasteland in Terra Nil. After a feast of demos, Ryan gives his early impressions on Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, with more to come next week when the game is complete. Finally, we close the show with the news where Cyberpunk 2077 has returned the PlayStation Store, EA MAY be reviving Dead Space, LEGO Mario has a new wave of fun arriving in August, and Xbox appears to be upgrading their xCloud servers.
Ryan returns to TGI, just in time to go over some of the biggest news from E3 2021 with Jocelyn. We kick things off with the highlights from Ubisoft Forward, then move into the “Available on Xbox Game Pass” presentation from Xbox and Bethesda. In the second half of the show, we chat about the Marvel games featured in the Square Enix Presents event, then close out the show with the Nintendo Direct (filled with much anticipated follow ups and sequels).
Ryan is away this week, so Joce takes over the show with ESO: Blackwood talk and special guest Scott Johnson! They go over the stories they love, where ESO might head next, the new companion system, Oblivion themed public dungeons, and more! Looking to start fresh in ESO, check out this Complete Beginners Guide. They then take a look at the highlights of the Summer Game Fest kickoff stream, and last but not least, chat about the newly announced MMO Palia.
As of this recording, Nintendo has yet to announce the rumoured Nintendo Switch Pro. But that doesn’t stop us from chatting about it at the top of the show! When we get to the games we’re playing, Ryan talks about his time with Biomutant, while Jocelyn dives into planetary settlement in Imagine Earth. In the news, PlayStation dropped about 20 minutes of PlayStation 5 gameplay for Horizon Forbidden West, God of War pushed to 2022 but will be available on PS4, and finally BlizzCon 2021 has been cancelled.
