    What is the SEGA Series X? | PS4-PS5 'Forward' Compatibility | The Case for Star Wars Battlefront II

    What is the SEGA Series X? | PS4-PS5 'Forward' Compatibility | The Case for Star Wars Battlefront II

     It's the 60th episode of The Finger Guns Podcast! This week Rossko, Sean, Greg, Toby and Paul dive into the weeks news and what they've been playing for the past seven days. First up we talk how Sony are demanding all games sent to Sony for certification from July 13th must be compatible with the PS5. What does this mean for the PS5 launch line up? Are you ready to upgrade? Will there be enough games from your library ready for the next generation and will they be available? And most importantly, will we be able to play Maneater on it? Let's be honest that's all we really want to do. We also discuss whatever the flippin' heck SEGA are currently up to. There's talk of a 'revolutionary' announcement coming this week, and it's something to do with Xbox? What on earth is the SEGA Series X? Are we going to find out before the next podcast? I mean, yes. Yes we definitely will because that announcement is coming in a few days but whatever it's going to be, we're very excited. Elsewhere as Star Wars Battlefront II get announced as June's second PS Plus game, there's talk that it's not worth playing (even though it's free?). So we put our heads together to come up with reasons why it's very much worth diving into whilst it's available for absolutely nothing at all. Elsewhere Sean sets us an Open World Location Trivia Challenge to see how well we know our massive worlds that we can do whatever we want in. We also talk hands on with Minecraft Dungeons, A Fold Apart, Gunman Clive HD, Fly Punch Boom!, Ys Memories of Celceta, SnowRunner, The Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, Jump King, Just Cause 4 and yes, Greg is back on Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. Some things never change around these parts.

    Steve Thornton is here! | #TheSnyderCut Lives! | Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath Woes

    Steve Thornton is here! | #TheSnyderCut Lives! | Mortal Kombat 11 Aftermath Woes

    This week on The Finger Guns Podcast the ENTIRE team is here as Rossko, Greg, Sean, Paul and Toby get our heads down with the weeks biggest gaming/nerd culture news and not only that, we have a guest! Joining us is Sperasoft's Steve Thornton who jumps on to talk his previous live at TT Games, his thoughts on Unreal Engine 5 along with his love for the design aesthetics in Doom Eternal and Sekiro, as well as lockdown living in St. Petersburg. We have an extended, fascinating chat with Steve which is well worth diving into. Our Trivia Challenge returns with Sean challenging us with a 3D Platformer quiz, can Toby get a point on the board after last weeks disastrous debut showing? Well, you'll have to listen I suppose. We also talk the obscene asking price of every little piece of Mortal Kombat 11 Kontent (heh) with Greg delivering a passionate retort to NetherRealms business practices. Are they treating the early adopters fairly? Should we really be paying over £100 for every piece of content? We discuss. Finally, well it's The Snyder Cut isn't it. It's actually real and our resident DC fanboy Paul has some thoughts on what it all could mean. Once, y'kno, once it's explained to him what on earth is going on because it's never quite a planet he's ever present upon. What other works of creative endeavour do we want sliced up and remade? It's a fun discusssion. There's a lot to love in this weeks bumper episode, along with thoughts on Maneater, Saints Row The Third Remastered, Forza Street, Rossko's further impressions of Google Stadia and more. RELEASE THE REAL DEXTER ENDING.

    Epic's Unreal Engine 5 is incredible | Ghost of Tsushima Gameplay Reaction | Tony Hawk 1+2 Remastered

    Epic's Unreal Engine 5 is incredible | Ghost of Tsushima Gameplay Reaction | Tony Hawk 1+2 Remastered

    This week on The Finger Guns Podcast we welcome the latest member of the team Toby Andersen for the first time to talk Unreal Engine 5, Ghost of Tsushima and Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2! First up we jump deep into the rather tremendous Unreal Engine 5 PS5 demo and what we think it can offer the next generation. When are we going to see the fruits of its labour? Has it convinced us that the next-gen is going to be a genuine step up? After a rather disappointing week from Xbox there appears to still be something truly revolutionary on the way. Following that we talk the Ghost of Tsushima State of Play presentation and just about manage to talk with our jaws still very much dropped. There's still so much to learn about the game but what they've displayed so far is making us very excited. Did you see the wind?! Also, what's up with the soundtrack on this new Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1+2 Remaster? The biggest questions answered. Sean also returns with the Indie Corner to talk Titan Chaser, NYX The Awakening and Sanity of Morris and throws Toby in at the deep end with a video game quote Trivia Challenge and he is not messing around. We also talk hands on with Fury Unleashed, Cloudpunk, Huntdown, Ion Fury, What The Golf?, Telling Lies, Music Racer (great title), The Wonderful 101 Remastered, NBA 2K20 on Stadia and a whole bunch more. SO MANY GAMES. Enjoy the episode, friends. Titan Chaser - @stasshostakNYX The Awakening - @nyxtheawakeningSanity of Morris - Facebook

    PlayStation's Next Move After Xbox's Poor Week | Is Mafia 4 incoming? | The Last of Us Part II Trailer Talk

    PlayStation's Next Move After Xbox's Poor Week | Is Mafia 4 incoming? | The Last of Us Part II Trailer Talk

    This week on The Finger Guns Podcast Rossko, Sean and Paul delve into the weeks gaming news, primarily the fallout of Xbox's lukewarm Gameplay Showcase. What was needed to really make it sing? Are Microsoft destined to make the same mistakes as the last generation? And what does this mean for PlayStation's future marketing for PS5? Will they hold back or pick up the pieces with a showcase of their own? Time will tell, there are excellent points made by Sean and Paul in this conversation so it's well worth a listen. Elsewhere a new Prince of Persia game was revealed! Well, kind of. We dust off our sands of time to decipher what the cancellation of Redemption meant for Ubisoft's subsequent output. Also, what is the Mafia Twitter account teasing? With a delightfully vague tweet tongues were certainly wagging as to what's next for the crime series and we try to figure out what it could all mean. We also discover that Paul forgot he watched the new Last of Us 2 trailer this week when we attempt to ask him about it. We also talk hands-on with Arcade Spirits, Sean *finally* starting Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Rossko jumping back into The Last of Us and The Eternal Castle Remastered, the shiny new version of a game that never existed. Finally, Sean returns with another 'name-that-game-by-the-character-list' Trivia Challenge, Paul tells us about his Game of the Year So Far, Rossko tries to explain the wonders of colonialism in Animal Crossing New Horizons. Yeah, you're going to want to listen to understand that statement.... | Theme Music – Don’t Feel (So Low) – Mid-Air Machine. | Indie Corner Jingle written and produced by Sarah Finney | Podcast Edited and Produced by Ross Keniston | Published by Podbean.

    Xbox Series X Gameplay Showcase Reaction Special

    Xbox Series X Gameplay Showcase Reaction Special

    Rossko, Sean and Greg join forces once again to dissect the Xbox Series X Gameplay Showcase, where a bunch of third-party partners revealed their new titles, including Assassin's Creed Valhalla (was it gameplay? Or was it gameplay? This will make sense...maybe..), Dirt 5, The Ascent, The Medium, Call of the Sea, Bright Memory Infinite, Scorn and many more. We talk our the games we're looking forward to the most (and the least), along with whether or not Xbox really delivered on the whole 'gameplay' aspect of the event. Did we really see enough to convince us the system will be worth picking up at launch? Or was it just a way to keep those already in the Xbox ecosystem without wanting to attract anyone else? There's a fair bit to discuss, along with looking at the games first announced Smart Delivery games (ie the ones you can carry from Xbox One to Xbox Series X). Finally, let's just say if you want to hear Sean GO OFF on Assassin's Creed Valhalla, well you've come to the right place. It's biblical. One more thing, the intro music is the official Xbox Series X boot up sound. You're welcome. DETAILS.

    Games of The Year (So Far) | Assassin's Creed Valhalla Reaction | Xbox Series X Showcase Predictions

    This week on The Finger Guns Podcast Rossko, Sean and Greg celebrate three years of Finger Guns! It's our birthday and we're gonna do whatever the hell we want, and whatever the hell we want to do is record a podcast, apparently. So here it is! This week we talk our favourite games of the year so far, and look forward to what's ahead with The Last of Us Part II and Ghosts of Tsushima getting new release dates. We also talk our reaction to that rather stonking Assassin's Creed Valhalla reveal trailer and one crucial change we'd add to make it even better. Are we on board for more 'Creed That Isn't Creed'? We discuss. Elsewhere we talk what we could be seeing at this weeks Xbox Series X Gameplay Showcase along with our own hopes for the event, Greg talks continuing his playthrough of Final Fantasy VII Remake and jumping back into L.A. Noire, Rossko talks his ongoing adventures with Google Stadia along with Streets of Rage 4 and Moving Out while Sean talks us through every single game he's played this week(!), including Z, Warborn, Ghost Sweeper and Deliver Us The Moon. Finally Sean returns to the quizmaster hotseat for this weeks Activision themed Trivia Challenge and brings us a shiny new Indie Corner full of gems you won't want to miss. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US! Enjoy the episode.

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.
