    4Player Podcast #798 - The Prophecy Fulfilled (Destiny 2: The Final Shape, The Alters Demo, Summer Game Fest Announcement Recap, and More!)

    It's a big week. Krispy has finally blessed us with Destiny 2 footage to coincide with the recent release of Destiny 2: The Final Shape! Not only that, Krispy takes us on a journey through the history of Destiny which has culminated in one of the game's most exciting and successful expansions! Brad talks about his experience with the demo for The Alters; an upcoming game from 11-Bit Studios which seems to combine survival gameplay with an intriguing narrative that involves cloning. In the 2nd half of the show, we recap the highs and lows of this year's Summer Game Fest including the re-reveal of Dragon Age: The Veilguard (formerly Dreadwolf), Perfect Dark, Star Wars Outlaws, and more!

    4Player Podcast #797 - Just Say Yes to Everything (Summer Game Fest Predictions, Nine Sols, Minishoot Adventures, and More!)

    It's that special time of year once again... where the mess of showcases and preview events run amock without the comfort and organization of E3. Chaos aside... it's still an exciting time for anyone looking to know what the future of gaming has in store. With that in mind, we run through a long list of Summer Game Fest predictions put together by Chris Davis and discuss the highlights from last week's Playstation State of Play and Silent Hill Transmission events. But before we get to all that, Nick and Nolan talk about a hot up-and-coming new Metroidvania called Nine Sols and Brad shares his thoughts on a charming new arcade shooter called Minishoot Adventures!

    4Player Podcast #796 - The Uranus Zone Show (Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2, Lorelei and the Laser Eyes, Astro Bot / Resident Evil Rumors, and More!)

    Summer Games Fest approaches and some serious rumors are starting to circulate. We set aside some time at the top of the show this week to address some whispers regarding the next round of Resident Evil remakes, an impending Astro Bot announcement, and more! Krispy does an excellent job of selling us on the latest game from Simogo called Lorelei and the Laser Eyes and a conversation about Senua's Saga: Hellblade 2 leads to a deeper debate about what dictates success in this industry.

    4Player Podcast #795 - The Chris Davis Enigma Show (Dread Delusion, Animal Well, Stellar Blade, and More!)

    Indie-May continues! We revisit Animal Well and focus a little more on what that game looks like once you have peeled back a few layers of the proverbial onion; More specifically, after the credits roll. Brad goes to town on Dread Delusion as it subverts expectations in both good AND bad ways. Despite that, Brad is very clearly all in on the game. Nick circles back to Stellar Blade which has, at this point, established itself as an uncompromising horny game with some rock solid mechanics to boot. Also... we ask the age old question... what will Chris Davis play next?

    4Player Podcast #794 - The Cultural Osmosis Show (Animal Well, Crow Country, V Rising, and More!)

    The video game industry landscape continues to shift and collapse as everyone tries to time their layoffs to blend in with the outrage aimed almost entirely at Xbox. While the AAA space might be in turmoil at the moment, May is shaping up to be an absolutely incredible month for indie releases! We try our best (and mostly succeed) to not spoil Animal Well; but with a game built around discovery and experimentation, it proves difficult. As a lover of classic survival horror, Nick is ecstatic to share his thoughts on Crow Country while Brad hypes up V Rising which just hit 1.0 and offers one of the most genuine and addicting Vampire power fantasies out there. In the 2nd segment, Chris Davis entices Krispy to play Star Ocean: The Second Story R with an impressive but unexpected pitch.

    4Player Podcast #793 - The Terrible, Awful, No Good Video Games Industry (Xbox Studio Closures, the Helldivers 2 Debacle, INDIKA, and More!)

    It's yet another sad day for the industry - Unfortunately just another week of mass layoffs, studio closures, and project cancellations thanks to out-of-touch, overpaid executives and bad management. On the morning of May 7th, Microsoft officially (and unexpectedly) closed down Arkane Austin, Tango Gameworks, Roundhouse Games, and Alpha Dog studio. As a result, hundreds of talented folks are suddenly unemployed and the future of promising IP like Hi-Fi Rush, Evil Within, and Prey are now in indefinitely in limbo. Of course, Sony is also in a hell of their own making (albeit a temporary one) thanks to a wildly misguided decision regarding Helldivers 2. It's a lot to unpack this week but it's not all doom and gloom; Nick takes the time to share his thoughts on the wacky world of INDIKA.

Love these guys

Great bunch of guys here I’ve enjoyed listening to for years. Look forward to the new upload every week so I can listen at work.
Only thing I’d say is Brad needs to try to not incite pointless arguments with Nick or whoever else. Although these guys have been friends for years, it creates a slightly awkward air.

Have been coming back to this show for well over a decade. Only podcast I’ve ever stuck with this long. Hilarious and informative.

Fantasy Critic + Belittling

This podcast used to be top tier when it came to substantive, in depth conversations about mainstream triple-A games and undiscovered indie gems. I learned about so many titles I never would have known about before and respected the discourse surrounding them. Unfortunately, a lot has changed in 2 years.
They decided to add a HUGE focus on fantasy critic drafting which now dominates at least the first 30-45 minutes of each podcast. This is excruciating to listen to unless you enjoy lengthy meandering back and forth pissing contests. Once you get past all that, they *might* discuss the games they’ve been playing, but even then you can be sure that Brad will interrupt all of them to either belittle and demean them and their opinions, or assert his intellectual superiority in a mean spirited and uninteresting tangent. Apparently he thinks that this is entertaining (it’s not) and seems to have a particular fondness for taking Nick down, which very much gives bully on the playground picking on a girl he likes energy.

Here’s a thought: get back to talking about your shared love of video games and what you’re enjoying at the moment rather than talking over and down to each other based on how many “points” your draft has. What a shame.
