    RIP Google Stadia | Trouble at Disco Elysium | Horizon Zero Dawn Remake Incoming?

    RIP Google Stadia | Trouble at Disco Elysium | Horizon Zero Dawn Remake Incoming?

    This week on The Finger Guns Podcast Rossko, Kat, Miles and Sean get together to talk the weeks big news and basically there's only one place to start and that's the inevitable death of Google Stadia. After the announcement this week that Google will be pulling the online-only service in January of next year, we talk what went wrong, what Google didn't do well (and also what they did), what they could have done to save the service and, most crucially, how the developers had no idea this was happening until Google announced it. It's an entire cluster of bad times all round, and we break it down for you as best we can.
    Elsewhere we talk the fallout of leadership heads at Disco Elysium studio ZA/UM which lead to them 'involuntarily' leaving the company, leaving the sequel without its original creators. Where does this leave the new game? Are fans going to be as excited without their voices attached?
    As we were recording there was also some breaking news regarding a remake of Horizon Zero Dawn, which may be arriving on PS5 in the near future. There's nothing confirmed yet, but it looks like this rumour is building up steam amongst the press who have corroborated the information. We shall see what happens. Also, the Horizon board game is apparently really difficult.
    Finally we each discuss what we're looking forward to playing before the years end, there's still plenty of gaming to be had even if Miles is still refusing to play Gotham Knights. You know he will. We all know he will.
    Enjoy the ep!

    EGX 2022 Reviewed | Hands-On With Sonic Frontiers and Street Fighter 6! | The Best of the Indies

    EGX 2022 Reviewed | Hands-On With Sonic Frontiers and Street Fighter 6! | The Best of the Indies

    This week on The Finger Guns Podcast it's a proper OG cast as Rossko, Sean, Greg and Toby get together to talk all about EGX 2022. Granted, only Sean and Greg went this year but they have a whale of time talking to Rossko and Toby about their time at the event, what they played, who they shmoozed and what they thought of the event overall, whilst namechecking some indie highlights such as Robobeat, How To Say Goodbye, To Hell With That Guy, Trinity Fusion and Soulbound.
    Rossko of course asks about Sonic Frontiers and gets perhaps the shock of his life when Sean and Greg both agree that there may just be something there that's worth getting excited about this time...maybe. Greg and Sean also sing the praises of Street Fighter 6 after having several bouts on the upcoming fighter.
    Elsewhere we quickly get into the weeks biggest news with Cyberpunk suddenly doing massive numbers, Splinter Cell's remake getting 'modernised', a big update on the Rockstar Games hack and our thoughts on the first full trailer for HBO's TV adaptation of The Last of Us. It's divided the camp, that's for sure.
    We of course also have our game recommendations, Game of the Week includes No Place for Bravery, Diofield Chronicle, Family Man on Switch and QUBE's 10th anniversary and everything notable that's due for release this week. It's a big one.
    Enjoy the ep!

    Grand Theft Auto 6 Leaked... | PSVR 2 Won't Play PSVR Games | An External PS5 Disc Drive Incoming?

    Grand Theft Auto 6 Leaked... | PSVR 2 Won't Play PSVR Games | An External PS5 Disc Drive Incoming?

    This week on a packed Finger Guns Podcast Rossko sits himself back in the hosting seat with Sean, Greg, Kat, Miles and Josh to talk about the weeks news and what on earth could we talk about. Well, there was a certain thing about Grand Theft Auto 6 that happened.
    Yes, GTA 6 leaked across the internet this week and we have some thoughts. A lot of them not good. We try to dissect the timeline of this madness and work out where Rockstar Games go from here in dealing with this. It may not have huge implications after all, but it's not all that great, eh? We talk it out and see if the hype remains (spoiler; it does).
    We also get into the PSVR 2 news and after a week of previews and reveals, the news that the new headset will be incompatible with PSVR 1 games. We're all a bit gutted about it and we discuss whether or not this impacts our excitement for the headset. Also, are Sony planning an external disc drive for future PS5 models? The smallest of rumours have landed and we talk the possibilities and how it would actually be a good thing. Maybe? We'll see.
    In Game of the Week Rossko (and Kat, still blowing Rossko's mind to this day) talk the brand new Chromey season of Fortnite, Miles talks Sunday Gold, Kat finally gets to share her thoughts on Little Orpheus, Greg jumps back into Cyberpunk 2077, Josh has played a whole lot of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty and Sean finally gets his hands on his hugely anticipated Return to Monkey Island. There were tears shed..
    Enjoy the ep!

    September 2022 Nintendo Direct / PlayStation State of Play Reaction Special

    September 2022 Nintendo Direct / PlayStation State of Play Reaction Special

    It's another Reaction Special and my word, we've only got two showcases to cover in one! First up we talk our highlights of the *very long* Nintendo Direct and what we're looking forward to getting our hands on, we talk the aftermath of the GoldenEye announcement and how it doesn't sound quite as exciting as first appeared along with whether or not there were enough JRPG farming sims coming to the Switch.
    We then do a swift deep dive into the PlayStation State of Play where we found something for everyone, including a Tekken 8 announcement and that rather glorious trailer for Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja's Rise of the Ronin. Oh and that God of War Ragnarok game that people seem to be excited for? Yeah, we talk about that too.
    We said it would be a short one, it wasn't. It never is. Ah well.
    Enjoy the ep!

    Ubisoft Forward Recap (Assassin's Creeeeeed!!) | Disney / Marvel Recap (Monkey Island!!) | Tomb Raider returns to Eidos

    Ubisoft Forward Recap (Assassin's Creeeeeed!!) | Disney / Marvel Recap (Monkey Island!!) | Tomb Raider returns to Eidos

    This week on The Finger Guns Podcast, Kat, Miles, Sean and Josh get into the weeks news, which is basically just jumping into the primary showcases that hit the last few days.
    First up we get into the first ever Disney / Marvel games showcase as part of the D23 Expo, and each pod host shares what they're excited for from the show, which is certainly a mixed bag. Sean loved it though, naturally.
    Talking of Sean loving games we then get into the Ubisoft Forward and talk everything you need to know about the future of Assassin's Creed. Ubisoft are going all out with the franchise and it's super exciting to see what's to come. Sean deep dives into why with a few theories and some hype for the future of the franchise. We also talk about the rest of Ubisoft Forward but let's be honest, it was all building towards Assassin's Creed and everything else was...well.
    Anyway! Elsewhere Kat is very excited about Tomb Raider going home to Eidos and Crystal Dynamics and all is well.
    And in Game of the Week Josh spent the week on the basketball court with NBA 2K23, Sean is back on his FMV trip in the wild and wonderful The Gallery, Miles has been working his way through Steelrising and Kat has been spying on the general populous in City Eye.
    Enjoy the ep!

    Silent Hill 2 Images Leak?! | The Last of Us Part 1 arrives broken | Is It Too Late for Cyberpunk 2077?

    Silent Hill 2 Images Leak?! | The Last of Us Part 1 arrives broken | Is It Too Late for Cyberpunk 2077?

    This week on the 170th episode of The Finger Guns Podcast Kat takes the reigns with Miles, Sean, Tom and Josh joining your host to talk through the games news including these rather suspiciously exciting Silent Hill 2 image leaks. The team are split on whether or not they're real but we're rather looking forward to see where this goes as Konami has begun to get a little bit louder about what's to come from them.
    We also get into The Last of Us Part 1 with some players receiving their fairly expensive Firefly Edition in poor conditions, with Sony not going to refund the damaged goods. Tsk. We also get into our thoughts on the remake. Also, the team gets into this weeks Cyberpunk 2077 announcement that a new showcase is incoming to show off the next batch of patches(!) and possibly some new DLC footage. It's been a long road for this one, are any of the team at all excited?
    And in our Game of the Week Sean has jumped back into Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1+2, Miles returns to Back 4 Blood to check out the new DLC, Tom gets elusive with Inscryption, Josh has dusted off the fury road to go back and play some Mad Max and Kat has continued her run through Days Gone and has seemingly, finally had enough with Dead By Daylight.
    Enjoy the ep!

Blah blah blah blah blah 1978 ,

A podcast for gaming that’s been desperately needed.

Listening to Fingerguns is like that feeling you get when you hold a SNES controller in your hands just after flipping that glorious on switch to load your favourite game.
If you need further explanation to that, it’s a pretty dam satisfying and enjoyable podcast full of greatness and is never dull.. unless you were a Megadriver then that analogy might not work for you but sod you, you made the mistake getting a megadrive over a SNES back then and you probably don’t deserve a podcast this good. Off you scoot.
