    Cyberpunk Goes Gold But Devs Must Crunch, EA Play Comes to Game Pass & Insomniac Change Peter Parker's Face For PS5

    On this week’s PlayersToo Podcast: Cyberpunk 2077 goes gold, but the impending release comes at a cost for the developers as CD Projekt Red announce mandatory crunch, reversing an earlier commitment not to force overtime on staff. In other news: EA Play is coming to Xbox Game Pass at the launch of the Series X/S, but could the expansion of gaming’s best deal become a problem in the future? We also discuss Insomniac’s odd decision to change the character model of Peter Parker ahead of the PS5 Spider-Man Remaster, and Ubisoft’s decision to overhaul Hyper Scape just a few months after the game’s release.
    Hear about the games we’re playing including Bloodborne, Hollow Knight and Super Mario Galaxy, plus shout-outs to other stories including this month’s free games on PS Plus and Xbox Games with Gold, review scores for FIFA 21, Crash Bandicoot 4 and Star Wars Squadrons and more, before we close the show with a discussion on the games of the generation, in reaction to Game Informer’s recently published comprehensive list of the best titles released since the launch of the PS4 and Xbox One.
    Remember our PlayAlong game for October will be Tacoma, Fullbright’s second narrative exploration game following debut hit Gone Home. Play it as we do, share your thoughts with us on social media and we’ll discuss the game on the first show in November!

    Mark's Desert Island Games!

    Mark's Desert Island Games!

    On this week’s PlayersToo Podcast: Mark’s Desert Island Games! We’ve both gone for a much-needed holiday this week, but before we left we recorded this special out-of-time episode where Lewis asks Mark for the 8 games he’d take to a desert island, in tribute to the iconic UK radio show, Desert Island Discs. Mark takes us through his selection, reflecting on why each game has been important in his life and why it’s a perfect pick for the castaway life. The rules? Any 8 games from across the decades, including multiplayer games with fantasy servers - though only one can have any sort of in-game communication. Will you agree with his picks? Let us know what you’d take if you were exiled with your most precious games! We hope you enjoy this special episode, and we’ll be back with all the normal news and views, plus everything we’ve been playing on our holidays, next week.
    Remember our PlayAlong game for September is Gone Home, the first-person narrative exploration game from Fullbright. Play it as we do, share your thoughts with us on social media and we’ll discuss the game on the first show in September!

Great podcast

Not sure why it’s taken me this long to write a review since I’ve been listening since the first E3 episode. Great podcast covering the relevant video game news. Has introduced me to lots of new indie games.

Something fresh for the gaming world

After trying to branch out to more gaming podcasts I found this little gem. A breath a fresh air for gaming podcasts. Just two mates chatting about their experience with games and everything that’s happening in the gaming world. Something about the two is very relatable which makes listening to the podcast a joy!

Hooked after one episode

I discovered Players Too after widening my search for more gaming-related podcasts. This is a slick podcast, well produced and really entertaining to listen to. The guys know their stuff and I’m really looking forward to future episodes.
