New episodes are recorded live every Thursday night at 8pm (CST) on 4PP.tv and are made available online the following day.
4Player Podcast #683 - Predicting E3 2021
It's hard to believe but after nearly two years, E3 is upon us. While the show is going full digital this year due to the Pandemic, the industry is bracing itself for announcement season nonetheless. In this episode we take a stab at predicting what we may or may not see at the various presentations from publishers like Microsoft, Nintendo, Ubisoft, Capcom, and more! We also respond to some predictions and dream announcements from the community!
4Player Podcast #682 - The Moon Shoes Show (Biomutant, Dying Light 2 Details, Horizon: Forbidden West Reveal, and More!)
This week, Biomutant fails to deliver the experience we were hoping for but it's not all bad. Brad delivers an update on the Monster Hunter Rise 3.0 update and elsewhere in the industry, it begins to feel like E3 season despite the obvious caveats that go hand-in-hand with the event this year. We talk about the rumored Souls-like Final Fantasy spin-off from Team Ninja and we give our impressions of the big Dying Light 2 and Horizon: Forbidden West reveals that dropped this week!
4Player Podcast #681 - The Textured Show (Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, Subnautica: Below Zero, and More!)
What's old is new again in 2021! Nolan is deep into the 1.0 release of Subnautica: Below Zero and loving this follow-up to one of our favorite games of 2018! Nick and Chris talk about their time with Mass Effect: Legendary Edition before it inevitably veers into the great Mass Effect debate of 2007. Brad delivers his final thoughts on Resident Evil Village and the group spends a surprising amount of time talking about theme park rides.
Revival Club - Final Fantasy XII
Nick is joined by community guests, TheDrunkenMerchant and GonzoLewd, to talk about the 2nd Revival Club game of the year, Final Fantasy XII! While the series has a long and storied history, this entry is often overlooked or excluded during discussions about the series despite being chock full of inspired (but flawed) ideas and being heavily influenced by the growing popularity of MMOs in the early 2000's. There is even some discussion about what influences, if any, this game might have on the upcoming release of Final Fantasy XVI.
4Player Podcast #680 - The Blue Room Show (Resident Evil Village, The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap, and More!)
Resident Evil has long been a celebrated franchise here at 4Player in one way or another so this week, we spend a considerable amount of time discussing our thoughts on Resident Evil Village. On top of that, we challenge ourselves to avoid mentioning previous games in the franchise with varying degrees of success. Nolan continued his journey into Zelda's celebrated past by playing The Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap for the first time and in the second segment, we revisit some of our favorite in-store demos from our youth and answer some fun hypotheticals courtesy of our Patreon and Twitch supporter questions.
4Player Podcast #679 - The Sushi Boat Show (Returnal, Yakuza 7, It Takes Two, and More!)
On Brad's birthday episode, we talk about our time with Returnal; a fun and demanding Rogue-Like that just might be one of the biggest arguments for going in on a PS5 this early. Chris Davis "prepared a statement" about Yakuza 7 and Nolan delivers his final thoughts on It Takes Two now that he and Bernadette finished it. We also pour one out for the talent that is departing Giant Bomb this week and in the news, we skim the surface of the big Epic vs. Apple lawsuit.
Top Tier Show
I’m not gonna bother with this review, just read what the “Werewolf” guy said previously.
Great banter, no annoying ad breaks
I find a lot of video game podcasters annoying, but these guys strike the right balance between joking around and discussing what’s good or bad about the games they’re playing. Plus you don’t have to endure or skip past a bunch of super annoying ad breaks.
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.
