#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.
