    6 - Spartacus officially revealed, Horizon: Forbidden West Review, PlayStation acquires Haven Studios, The sequel to The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild delayed

    It feels weird to start a podcast description with the words 'as discussed' but here we are.

    On today's episode:
    As discussed in the last episode, Sony has now officially revealed details about Project Spartacus. That's not what they're calling it. That was just an internal codename that had leaked. It's simply the 'New PlayStation Plus' which now has tiers which I describe in detail and I also explain why I feel the base tier is still the best value for most gamers.I review Horizon: Forbidden West after spending a little over 49 hours with it and finishing the main story.I talk about why Sony's acquisition of Haven studios feels different than their other acquisitions.The delay of the sequel to The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (bummer, I know).
    As usual, here are all the links for your reference:
