#111 – Michael killed Telltale

Surely Michael’s fabled uttering that “Telltale should take a break” and the subsequent news that Telltale is closing down are a coincidence at best. It would be ridiculous to think that such enigmatic words could cause the closure of a beloved studio. It’s a moronic thought, really. And yet, here we are.

This week we’re also discussing Life is Strange 2, XBOX X018, no Playstation Experience for 2018, PS4 getting cross-play support, Forza Horizon 4, The Ace Attorney Trilogy, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Nintendo clarifying cloud save expiries, Super Mario Party Cartridge selling on eBay and Nintendo winning a lawsuit against Tokyo Mario Karting.

And finally, we list our Top 3 Games that NEED to be on the Playstation Classic, and play RESET Mini-game: 20 Questions.

#97 – Ni No Mila Kunis 2

We don’t know much about grain, but we try not to make a habit of going against it. Especially since it makes up so many of our favourite delish cereals. Yum, cereal. Unfortunately though, we are going against it this week: Tegan’s played Ni No Kuni 2 and despite the fantastic reception it seems to be receiving, she doesn’t has the loveliest things to say about it.

This week we’re also discussing the Spyro Reignited Trilogy, some exciting new details about Spider-Man PS4, Overwatch’s upcoming Retribution event, SIMULACRA, No Man’s Sky, PAX Aus 18 feat. EB Expo tickets (forget the Ultimate Gamer Pass, send us cash) and Far Cry 5.

And finally, we list the Top 3 Games we were positive we’d love but didn’t, and play RESET Mini-game: 20 Questions.

#91 – Giving Playstation VR a second chance

Here’s one: you buy a Playstation VR on launch day, it gives you motion sickness so you sell it. What next? You buy another PSVR cause you arrogantly think you can build up a tolerance over time. So how does that work out? Lets find out in our new intermittent segment ‘PSVR Motion Sickness Update’. It’s probably not going to work. Maybe with the third PSVR.

We’re also discussing Accounting+, Superhot VR, Ni No Kuni 2 going gold, a final word on (the terrible) Metal Gear Survive, League of Legends loot box odds being published, 2018 DICE Awards winners, Burnout Paradise Remastered, PAX Aus 2018 dates announced, Hawaii legislating against loot boxes, Secret of Mana Remake and The Battle of Polytopia.

And finally, we list our Top 3 Strategy Games, and play RESET Mini-game: 20 Questions.

#83 – Bloodborne 2 confirmed? Well no, but maybe.

So without knowing for sure that FromSoftware’s teaser shown off at The Game Awards was teasing Bloodborne 2, we thought we’d send an email to their press mailbox for confirmation. We got an almost instantaneous reply from mailer-daemon, so that seems like a pretty good sign. Oh, and we attempted a second run of Hidden Agenda this week. Hopefully third time’s the charm.

This week we’re also discussing the biggest announcements at The Game Awards 2017, the biggest announcements at Playstation Experience 2017, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the impending release of Aussie indie game RUMU, Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris content removal, Detroit: Become Human’s negative press during the week and Million Onion Hotel.

And finally, we discuss the winners of the third RESET Award for 2017: The ‘We like Original Games’ Award, and play RESET Mini-game: 20 Questions.

#81 – Need for Speed Pay-pack. It’s wordplay.

It’s Awards season baby and you know what that means. Or at least we’re hoping you do, cause we don’t. Shoot us an email and let us know please. Anyway, one of us seems to have developed an obsession with terribly mediocre games and has picked up Need for Speed Payback. Spoiler alert: it’s terribly mediocre. The other picked up Rocket League on the Switch, so there goes that mystery.

This week we’re also discussing the ongoing fallout from EA’s implementation of microtransactions in Star Wars: Battlefront 2, an interesting Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice dev diary from Ninja Theory, FIFA 18 facing a boycott with the #FixFIFA campaign, Marvel Heroes being shut down, Playground Games working on an action adventure RPG, To the Moon 2: Finding Paradise and indie skateboarding game Session on Kickstarter.

And finally, we discuss the winners of the first RESET Award for 2017: The ‘One game for the rest of your life’ Award, and play RESET Mini-game: 20 Questions.
