    Episode #25 - PS5 Announcement & Not E3 News

    Firstly, we offer up some quick thoughts on the most recent spate of abuse victims within the wider games industry coming out and bravely sharing their stories.

    Episode #24 - Wildfire, MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries, Retrograde Arena

    Given recent events we felt last week was not the time to talk about video games but rather listen to the voices of those marginalised by a systemically racist system on a daily basis. Even now, it feels like a weird time to be talking about games, but that's what we're here to do, so we did it.

    Pat scorches the earth with his searing final take on Final Fantasy 7 Remake while also telling us about the new stealth-inspired platformer Wildfire, Hope's been playing more Guacamelee and lovely looking Retrograde Arena, and James played around with some MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries before slipping back into his videogame hiatus. Plus news and more.
