We’re soon to be all loaded up on current generation consoles as Jocelyn has successfully ordered a PlayStation 5! Plus, what should we do for our 500th episode to mark ten years of The Gamers’ Inn? Moving into games that we’re playing, Ryan is driving around in Forza Horizon 5 while thinking about Xbox Game Pass. Jocelyn on the other hand is crafting the superior dinosaur park in Jurassic World Evolution 2. Moving into the news, we have more on Activision Blizzard as Sony, Xbox, and Nintendo all weigh in on the matter. And to conclude the news, League of Legends is renewed at Netflix with Arcane Season 2 in production, and Amazon may be adapting Mass Effect soon.
Ryan and Jocelyn take a break from video games to talk about a Netflix series based on a video game! That’s right, we discuss the first three episodes of Arcane, the new League of Legends series. We discuss some spoilers for this first arc, so if you’re looking to experience yourself, best skip ahead. Next up, Ryan had some time in Back 4 Blood with his ZAMP co-host. In the news, there’s another damning update in the Activision Blizzard saga as WSJ has released a report on Bobby Kotick’s actions over the years and the story behind Jen O’Neal’s departure. In more news, The Game Awards released it’s nominee list, and for Xbox’s 20th anniversary Microsoft announced a documentary, showcased the first teaser for the Halo TV series, and launched Halo Infinite multiplayer early!
After a very successful Extra Life Game Day, Ryan and Jocelyn bring The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes to the inn. We go into full spoilers for the entire game, so if you’re looking to experience the game for yourself be sure to skip ahead. Before closing out the show, we chat about the continuing adventures of video game movies where Nintendo is looking at their next film starring Donkey Kong, and Mass Effect 5 received new concept art for N7 Day.
Both Jocelyn AND Ryan return this week to catch up on all the latest games and Chris Pratt news. Ryan brings a slew of games to chat about including his final thoughts on Metroid Dread (and a little Super Metroid thrown in for good measure). Plus a visit to the post apocalyptic sim builder genre with Endzone: A World Apart. Finally, we conclude what we’re playing with the overpriced, but nostalgia driven N64 expansion to Nintendo Switch Online (and N64 wireless controller). In the news, there’s more Activision Blizzard updates with BlizzConline 2022 cancelled, Overwatch 2/Diablo IV being delayed, and Jen Oneal (one of the co-leaders) leaving the company. Plus we get Jocelyn’s take on that new Uncharted movie trailer.
