    Quicksave 024: 5000 Whatever the F*** Bucks

    Scott's got a pocketful of games to chat up this week, including the PC port of Skate City, the old favorite Mad Max, and the new old business Wolfenstein: Blade of Agony, a fan-created original Wolfenstein campaign running in GZDoom. Evan's got his Monster Hunter "Minute", and some thoughts on Judgment for the PS5 and why it might be his favorite Yakuza series entry. The guys also dig into Apex Legends' Legacy update, the Resident Evil Village demo on PC and what the implications are for the game on that platform, and some Sony-related news. Finally, after we pay our respects to Giant Bomb's departing staff, we settle in for the Ultimate Snack Bracket Spectacular, a face-off of snack foods for the ages.

    Quicksave 023: The Battle of Watercress Sandwich

    Buckle up, buckle up, buckle up! The show is in FINE form this week. Scott played lots of the Chivalry 2 closed beta and has much to say, and possibly even more to say about the much maligned Fast & Furious Crossroads. Evan has been dabbling with parts of the PS4's legacy catalog, while also making time for the Resident Evil Village Castle demo, and of course, the Monster Hunter Rise update. We've got some brief chit chat about recent gaming news, and we dive into our impressions of Hazelight's previous co-op focused title, A Way Out.

    Discussed:


    Chivalry 2 Beta (14:47)
    Fast & Furious Crossroads (33:37)
    Horizon: Zero Dawn, Ghost of Tsushima, Resident Evil Village (54:46)
    Monster Hunter Rise ver 2.0 Update (1:07:35)
    A Way Out (01:33:10)

    Quicksave 022: More Books Gets You Closer to a Personal Pan Pizza

    Quicksave 022: More Books Gets You Closer to a Personal Pan Pizza

    Scott kicks things off talking through his experiences with two games that aren't bad but also aren't great, Crash Dive 2 and MogoGP 21. Evan has some follow-up thoughts on Oddworld Soulstorm (and why it probably isn't for him), and both of the guys have a whole lot to say about Capcom's timed demo strategy for Resident Evil Village (spoilers: we think it's super dumb). Then it's off into news and current events land where the discussion explores Sony's recent missteps with the PS3 and PS Vita marketplaces, the recent incident of Grinding Gear Games dealing with an internet troll levying false claims while pretending to be a disabled gamer, and we explore the nuance of some remarks about supporting games financially from John Garvin (director of Days Gone and Syphon Filter). It's Big Takes Week on Quicksave, so buckle up for a lot of impassioned discussion.

    Discussed:


    Crash Dive 2 (11:09)
    MotoGP 21 (18:22)
    Oddworld Soulstorm (32:33)
    Resident Evil Village Demo (45:55)
