This weekly show features the staff of 4PlayerNetwork.com as they discuss video games (both old and new), game industry news, and respond to feedback from the community! Whether you play games on PC or console (Playstation, Xbox, Nintendo) or want to hear about the latest Triple-A release or a low-budget indie darling, nothing is overlooked here! New episodes are recorded live every Thursday night at 8pm (CST) on 4PP.tv and are made available online the following day.
4Player Podcast #671 - The Fade to Black Show (Little Nightmares II, Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, Project Triangle Strategy, and More!)
After an act of god forced us to skip the show last week, we play catch-up this week. David joins the fray again to talk with Brad about Ys IX: Monstrum Nox, Nick and Brad share differing opinions on Little Nightmares II, and Brad speaks to why he is cautiously optimistic for Project Triangle Strategy after playing the demo. On top of all that, there has been an abundance of news worth discussing including the cancellation of Anthem and the future of Konami IP.
Revival Club - Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
On this episode of the Revival Club, Nick is joined by Castlevania super-fan, Brad Simons, and community guest, Ferakin, to dig into what makes Symphony of the Night such a classic. We examine it's wealth of secrets and discuss how its rough edges and imperfections actually make it even better. Brad also conveniently reminds us that this episode started as a Double Feature so we also talk some about Rondo of Blood, the impact it had on the series, and how it paved the way for Symphony of the Night.
4Player Podcast #670 - Have you Heard of Slay the Spire? (Steam Game Festival Extravaganza)
This week, we forgo our usual itinerary in favor of breaking down a bunch of game demos from the recent Steam Games Festival. Brad shows up with an unexpected theme (Have you heard of Slay the Spire?) and Chris Davis played a Star Fox clone about Cats (Whisker Squadron)... Despite his best efforts, Nick was unable to avoid the cliche of liking f***ed up s*** and played 'Lust from Beyond' -- a Survival Horror game about infiltrating a demonic sex cult. Of course, this is just a small taste. We talked about a bunch of games, many of which you should keep on your radar in the coming year(s).
4Player Podcast #669 - The NICE Show (The Medium, Loop Hero, Monster Hunter Stories, and More!)
We're off to the races. Nick discusses his mixed feelings on the next big game from Bloober Team, The Medium; a game that has been oddly positioned as one of the year's big Microsoft exclusives. Nolan and Brad talk about their time with the demo for a cool new Rogue-like called Loop Hero. Of course, with a new Monster Hunter game on the horizon, Brad went back to try Monster Hunter Stories in an attempt to quench his unquenchable thirst for more Monster Hunter. Oh yeah... KoToR might be coming back.
4Player Podcast #668 - The Blood Pressure Show (Hitman 3, Monster Hunter Rise, Resident Evil Village, and More!)
As the new year starts to kick into gear, David joins us to talk about Hitman 3; a game that continues to deliver unparalleled freedom to the player for better or worse. We also delve into two major demos from Capcom that hit in the past week. Monster Hunter Rise delivers a fun and meaty demo that fails to consider series newbies while Resident Evil Village teases atmosphere and little else.
4Player Podcast #667 - The 2020 Awards Show (Part 5)
The past year has been anything but normal but we press on as usual with our annual awards show. Unlike in years past, we are eliminating runner-ups and honorable mentions in favor of a coordinated effort that eliminates any overlap between our choices. That means more games are honored in each category! In part 5, we discuss the following categories:
Biggest Surprise Biggest Disappointment The Asterisk Award Biggest Regret The Number 11 Award This episode includes a short sample from Nick's favorite soundtrack of the year: The Last of Us: Part II

Werewolf Masturbating in a Flower Bed
I feel this show is best described as a werewolf masturbating in a flower bed. It is strange, unexpected, and you may not understand what or why it is happening. Nevertheless, there is a disturbing beauty that is impossible to look away from; and you might even learn something about yourself for liking it. May your podcast garden forever grow from this magic moisture.
The guys deliver honest reviews of the latest games and will call trash when they see it. They also open your eyes to overlooked gems in the game industry. Keep up the great work!
Good Gaming Podcast...
4Player Podcast is full of gamers who know their stuff, they put many other podcasters to shame with the sheer content they put out on such a limited budget. However with all things comes a catch, and that catch is the man named Chris Davis. You liekly won't catch it during the actual recording, but this man is a very toxic part of the community, and can deter many a newcomer. Chris has an uncaring and downright brash attitude towards chatters when he streams, and will often have the moderators silence anyone who disagrees with his opinions or choices. Besides this point, 4PP is a great podcast to listen to.
