We kick off the show wondering what we should do for episode 500, but ultimately decided we should leave it up to the community! Be sure to let us know in the Discord! Ryan then moves into his final thoughts on Life is Strange: True Colors after completing the game (Special thanks to Square Enix for providing a review code). Jocelyn on the other hand has jumped into the sequel to I Am Bread, titled I Am Fish. In the news we have another Activision Blizzard update where the SEC is investigating, with a few more high profile departures from the company for good measure. Moving into lighter news, God of War director explains why the Norse Saga is only two chapters, and Pokemon Company announces Pokemon Trading Card Game LIVE.
We kick off the show with some thoughts on the launch of Deathloop. While we haven’t had a chance to play, we react to the positive reviews on PlayStation 5 alongside the rocky reviews on Steam. Moving over to what we have played, Ryan received a review code for Life is Strange: True Colors on Xbox Series X and has some initial thoughts on the first chapter. We also confirm the next focus for the TGI Patreon Mini Update Corner, which will be Tales of Arise! In the news, we have another Activision Blizzard update with ANOTHER lawsuit being brought forward, LEGO announces a new Super Mario 64 set, Hayley Atwell will be the new voice of Lara Croft on Netflix, and the Epic v Apple ruling is in (but not over with an appeal from Epic).
We return a little later this week, for good reason, as we wait for PlayStation to finally showcase their upcoming games. But before we breakdown the latest exclusives from the house of Kratos, Ryan and Jocelyn introduce listeners to their Extra Life plans! As of now, we’ll have multiple streaming events, first starting in October. If you can donate, please do so at bit.ly/tgiextralife2021, or share our team page. Every little bit helps! Over in what we’re playing, Ryan recounts his multiplayer adventures in Marvel’s Adventures. Plus he has a review to share on the Backbone One controller, which he has been using with Xbox Cloud Gaming and Remote Play. In the news, we kick things off with the story that Nintendo may be adding Game Boy and Game Boy Colour games to their online service, and Alan Wake finally returns with a Remaster of the original game and DLC. Finally, we close the show with our highlights from the PlayStation Showcase!
As promised, we kick off the show with our 12 Minutes spoiler discussion. After an extra week with the game, we’ve got some thoughts to get off our chests. If you’re avoiding spoilers, or want to avoid discussion on the game (as it goes PLACES), check the time stamps below and skip ahead. Following 12 Minutes, Ryan has returned to Square Enix’s Marvels Avengers with the latest content drop: War for Wakanda Expansion. In the news, we have the latest Activision Blizzard update with the planned renaming of McCree in Overwatch, we go over some highlights from Opening Night Live at GamesCom (including the confirmed delay of Horizon Forbidden West), and we discuss the first images from the new Resident Evil movie.
