Ryan received his PlayStation 5 and proceeded to watch progress bars for a few days as he moved into the next generation of PlayStation. But eventually, he got to play some games with Miles Morales and Astro’s Playroom. TGI has upgraded and we’re now fully capable of covering the next generation of consoles (when new games come out). We’ve got plenty of news from the latest State of Play and Pokemon Presents announcements. There’s also a good chunk of info out of Bioware with Anthem Next being canned, the next Dragon Age being single player focused, and Henry Cavill teasing a Mass Effect project.
After a surprise PlayStation 5 update from both inn keepers, Ryan shares his thoughts on playing through Little Nightmares I and II. The sequel was actually played on Google Stadia, so Ryan chats about his experience with the game streaming technology. Jocelyn has been on a bit of viking kick in 2021, which continues with Valheim. Moving over to the news, Mortal Kombat is back for another run at theatres (this time with an R rating), Nintendo had a Direct, and BlizzConline brought the Activision Blizzard magic.
The Nintendo Switch has received yet another Wii U classic with the arrival of Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. We spend some time discussing the new addition of online co-op to the base game, plus early thoughts on the Bowser’s Fury expansion. In the news, we discuss a bit of video game movie magic with the release date confirmation for Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Then we speculate on what could be announced later on in the week at BlizzConline, and the first Nintendo Direct in over a year.
We’re back to discussing The Medium, this time focusing on the story. We spoil the general story path, and discuss the ending. If you’re interested in playing The Medium without being spoiled, you’ll want to revisit this discussion at a later date. We conclude the show with the latest news, looking at Blizzard Activision having multiple Warcraft mobile games in advanced development, Gearbox is now a part of Embracer, and the ESA is planning an all digital E3 2021.
