New episodes are recorded live every Thursday night at 8pm (CST) on 4PP.tv and are made available online the following day.
4Player Podcast #662 - Talkin' bout Bugsnax (Spider-Man Miles Morales, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, The Pathless, and More!)
This week's episode is jam packed full of new games to talk about; It's an absolute Playstation 5 bonanza! Now that the system has been out for a week, we take a closer look at Bugsnax (obviously), Sackboy: A Big Adventure and Spider-Man Miles Morales. Nick and Nolan share their EARLY impressions of Assassin's Creed Valhalla which is clearly going to be another divisive monster of a game. Nolan surprises with The Pathless and Chris Davis is already almost through the remake of Demon's Souls. We also discuss the exciting news that IO Interactive is making a James Bond game and a BIG leak from Capcom.
4Player Podcast #661 - The Curious Case of Carlos (Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Visage, First PS5 Impressions, and More!)
Even amidst the mess that is 2020, there are glimmers of hope. The next generation of console gaming has started and we have our first hands-on impressions of the Playstation 5. Nolan talks about his time with Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Nick shares tales of his time with Visage; a game that both terrifies and captivates. Furthermore, Krispy and Nick take a deeper dive into Ghost of Tsushima Legends now that it has been out for a few weeks.
4Player Podcast #660 - The 'Dogs Always Live' Show (Little Hope, Watch Dogs Legion, Phasmophobia, and more!)
After taking a week off of podcasting to play Phasmophobia together, we finally have a chance to talk at length about what makes the game such a hit. Brad and Nick talk about the latest entry in The Dark Pictures anthology, Little Hope, and Nolan surprises us with an inspired indie survival game with adorable husky dogs called The Red Lantern. Nick also delivers his impressions of Watch Dogs Legion which doesn't revolutionize the genre but certainly takes a stab at some interesting mechanical ideas.
4Player Podcast #659 - The Gacha Show (Genshin Impact, Amnesia Rebirth, Ghost of Tsushima Legends, and More!)
Try as we might, we couldn't resist the pull of Genshin Impact. We take our first look at this Gacha sensation to see how it really compares to (and differentiates itself from) Breath of the Wild. Kris gives us his thoughts on Ghost of Tsushima Legends, the new muiltiplayer update that launched this week, and Nick discusses the scare tactics of Amnesia Rebirth.
Revival Club - Bully
In this (long overdue) episode of the Revival Club, we dig into the underdog of Rockstar's catalog: Bully. Released in 2006, this game established a cult following over the years thanks to it's charm, humor, and departure from Rockstar's standard M-rated subject matter. Together, with two community guests (Finding 404 & MrGreenTos), we discuss what makes this game special and why it remains one of Rockstar's biggest IPs this side of Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption.
4Player Podcast #658 - The Short Bone Show (Crash Bandicoot 4, Mortal Shell, Playstation 5 UX Reveal, and More!)
With new hardware just a few weeks away, Sony has finally pulled back the curtain on it's new Playstation 5 UX (User Experience). We extract what we can from the virtual tour but there are still many questions left unanswered. In impressions, Brad talks about his time with 'Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time' and Ed introduces 'Wildfire,' a game that harkens back to 'Mark of the Ninja.' Nick also discusses his new found love of 'Mortal Shell,' the latest (and perhaps truest) love-letter to the original Dark Souls on the market.
