    75. Returnal, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Before Your Eyes

    75. Returnal, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Before Your Eyes

    This week I’ve been dying a lot in Returnal, a new bullet-hell, rogue-lite from Housemarque. I've also been checking out the game you control by blinking called Before Your Eyes and finding out it's more than just a gimmick. I'm also looking forward to Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart given the recent focus on Sony's State of Play.

    73: Outriders, Xbox Series X, Narita Boy and Genesis Noir

    This week I’ve been playing plenty of Outriders, since its full release last Thursday. It’s the latest looter-shooter to enter a tricky market and so far so good. I’ve also been playing 80s inspired Narita Boy as well as Genesis Noir.

MinnMax Sent Me!

This show was featured as a sponsor on the MinnMax podcast, so I decided to check it out. I LOVE the extra focus on Destiny content, and the host’s voice and smooth delivery are so easy to listen to while playing Gambit or some strikes. HIGHLY recommend!

Informative and easy to listen to

Tom has managed to blend informing his audience while still being entertaining and very easy to listen to. He gives you information about video games and the industry in nice, bite-sized pieces while still being thorough.
