    This week we take a good, long look at the state of the console business and the AAA releases that underpin it. For that conversation, we're lucky to be joined by Andy Robinson of Vidoegame Chronicle, regular news breaker and a former game developer. He brought an incredibly insightful perspective as someone who not only has worked as a game maker, but also soemone with a rich stable of sources to tap for inside info.

    Let's meet our hosts:

    - Jake Baldino (aka the Before You Buy Guy) is pretty much the most watched reviewer on YouTube across both Gameranx and his personal channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/JakeBaldino). If you're obsessed with Delorians, The Mummy and Pizza you can discuss that stuff with him directly over on Twitter:  @JakeBaldino

    - Lucy James is a Senior Producer at Gamespot and a Creative Producer at Giant Bomb. She's actually, like, experienced and credentialed and has real life skills and stuff, while the rest of the gang would be funemployed if the YT algorithm didn't kiss them for random, inexplicable reasons. 

    - Skill Up used to work at McDonalds but he got fired for skimming too many chicken nuggets. He says he regrets it since he hasn't had a better job since.

    Oh boy - what a week. We thought Suicide Squad discourse would be top billing (and we did cover that off with special guest Greg Miller) but it turns out something bigger came along: rumours that Xbox are getting out of the exclusives business. We did a deep dive into that with special guest Parris Lilly. To top it all off, we checked in with Keen Games co-founder Antony Christoulakis to talk through the success of Enshrouded as it tears it up over on Steam.

    And we're back - 2024 is here and while we don't expect it'll be quite as jam-packed as 2023, there's still plenty of stuff to look forward to. Here's a look at some of our top picks, plus a few things we're... less excited for.

    Note: this episode was recorded before the news broke of 1900 Microsoft gaming staff losing their jobs. We'll likely cover that next episode.

    Welcome to the FPS Podcast!

    It's the last episode of the year, and rather than talk about videogames (again) we thought we'd just kick back and chill. It's been...a year, and it was nice to just shoot the shit for a bit as we farewell 2023. It's easily the least essential episode we've done to date, but we really enjoyed it and we hope you do, too.

    Welcome to the FPS Podcast!

    It's the day after The Game Awards (well, it was when we recorded this)! This week we're in LA, joined by resident podcast goblin Tamoor Hussain who is a regular fixture for any in-person recording. We're also honored to be joined by Megan Everett, Community Lead for Warframe, and Rebb Ford, Creative Director for Warframe. They talk us through their journey as leaders in the community management space, as well as what we should expect next from both Warframe and Soulframe. 

    (Plus, we got ourselves a fancy new studio to record in - not bad, huh?)

    - Jirard (aka The Completionist: https://www.youtube.com/c/ThatOneVide...) has been doing YouTube since before Noah wore short pants. Over the course of more than a decade, Jirard has completed HUNDREDS of games to bring you the quality of review that almost no other reviewer dare bring you, getting the 100% completion trophy for every title before putting pen to paper. Jirard has a let's play channel and in his spare time he fires off the occasional hot-take over on Twitter: @TheCompletionist

    - Skill Up used to work at McDonalds but he got fired for skimming too many chicken nuggets. He says he regrets it since he hasn't had a better job since.
