    Diablo Immortal is Pay to Win, PlayStation's Best State of Play Ever - VG2M # 309

    Diablo Immortal is Pay to Win, PlayStation's Best State of Play Ever - VG2M # 309

    This episode was originally recorded on 06/07/22. Apologies for taking so long to edit it and get it out.

    On this episode, Daniel has played quite a bit of Diablo Immortal. He discusses the game itself, how Diablo Immortal's Pay to Win strategy is a total detriment to gaining good vibes with gamers and it actually makes Sean and Marc not want to play it at all. Will this prove to be a winner for Blizzard? And could any of this bleed into Diablo IV as well?

    Marc also laments Jeff Gertsmann leaving Giant Bomb, his legacy in gaming, and what he could do next. (Turns out he's doing his own thing including a Solo podcast called the Jeff Gertsmann Show.)

    They also go through the highlights of the most recent PlayStation State of Play which featured the surprise of Final Fantasy XVI and even included a release window of Summer 2023. The Resident Evil 4 Remake also got show time too. Could this be the best State of Play ever?

    Also on this show: The latest Pokemon Scarlet & Violet trailer, the SEGA Mega Drive 2 announcement, Street Fighter VI leaks, and thoughts on the first three episodes of Star Wars Kenobi as well.

    V Rising, PlayStation's Big PC And VR Initiative # 308 - Video Games 2 the MAX

    V Rising, PlayStation's Big PC And VR Initiative # 308 - Video Games 2 the MAX

    This episode was originally recorded on 05/31/22. Apologies on taking so long to edit it and get it out.

    On this episode of Video Games 2 the MAX, Sean, Marc, and Daniel discuss playing V Rising, Warcraft 3 Reforged supposed roadmap and the overall picture of Blizzard heading into the release of Diablo Immortal.

    PlayStation also seems to be on this big turn to changing how many think of them. Moving away from only being known as a place for the big tent pole AAA games and doing more in the PC, VR, and games as service spaces. Will this wind up as a major win for Sony?

    Other things discussed on the show: The reveal of the Jedi Fallen Order sequel, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor. The Marvel MMO that never was. Horizon Zero Dawn getting a Netflix show, and more.

    Xbox Game Pass Lacking AAA Games, EA Looking to Sell? # 307 - Video Games 2 the MAX

    Xbox Game Pass Lacking AAA Games, EA Looking to Sell? # 307 - Video Games 2 the MAX

    This episode was originally Recorded on 05/24/22. Apologies that it took so long to edit and come out.

    On this episode of Video Games 2 the MAX, Sean, Marc, and Daniel discuss whether the sentiment that Xbox Game Pass is not living up to its billing of delivering on the AAA titles is truly warranted. Do gamers just need to be playing more indies? Or do gamers have a point? Is it time to start unsubscribing from the service?

    There's also discussion on how EA's deal to merge with NBC Universal falling through is a major statement about where the state of AAA gaming is at? And should we worry for other big publishers like Ubisoft and Square-Enix as well?

    Also on the episode: Would the Spider-Man games be as big a deal if they were an Xbox exclusive? Norman Reedus sort of confirming the existence of Death Stranding 2. Thoughts on the HALO TV Show and more.

    Classic Titles for PS Plus Premium, Latest on Silent Hill 2 Remake # 306 - Video Games 2 the MAX

    The show goes through a little bit of a reboot to introduce a third co-host with Daniel Anderson making his return and Marc Morrison takes the reigns as host, with Sean not being on this one.

    In this episode, Marc and Daniel discuss the announcement of the first classic titles heading to the PlayStation Plus Premium service, the tiers, and the outlook of the service as a whole as it heads into launch.

    There’s also discussion on what’s happening at Blizzard, Activision putting on a front about Call of Duty Vanguard’s lack of sales, the EA and FIFA split, the possibility of several Silent Hill titles in the works, Square-Enix selling off much of their western studios, the WATA lawsuit, and much more.

    A New The Witcher Saga, Strangers of Paradise, Tunic, Moon Studios Toxicity # 305

    A New The Witcher Saga, Strangers of Paradise, Tunic, Moon Studios Toxicity # 305

    After an unintended long layoff, Video Games 2 the MAX has returned with Sean and Marc joined by Jens Dietrich to talk about, you guessed it, more Elden Ring. Marc also has final thoughts on Horizon Forbidden West as he's beaten the game. Sean's also been playing some games too, with Tunic and Strangers of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin being the two main ones.

    There are quite a few things to discuss since the last episode, as CD Projekt has announced a new saga of The Witcher series is in development. Although scarce details are available as they are basically in the beginning stages. At least it is being made with Unreal Engine this time.

    Moon Studios is hugely toxic according to many former employees. We discuss some of the aspects of why this is so concerning and how it played a role in why Microsoft did not push to acquire them.

    Sony had not one, but two State of Plays since our last episode, and they've also acquired yet another studio in Haven. Supermassive has a new game, Gotham Knights is actually coming out, and much more.

    A Musical Story, Forspoken Delayed, Pokemon Generation 9 is Happening # 304

    A Musical Story, Forspoken Delayed, Pokemon Generation 9 is Happening # 304

    Well, there certainly have been a lot of big games that have come along lately to keep everyone busy, as Triangle Strategy now joins the list of yet another game someone on the podcast is playing. Sean discusses his very brief time with the game so far and also more on A Musical Story as well. Marc continues trekking through the huge open worlds in Elden Ring, Horizon Forbidden West, and Lost Ark.

    As the War in Ukraine has intensified over the last week, gaming companies have done everything from donating money and game sale proceeds to even stopping their games and products from being sold in Russia too. EA even made sure to remove Russian teams from NHL 22 and FIFA 22 as well.

    New Pokemon games are coming THIS YEAR and it is in fact generation nine of the series as Pokemon Scarlet and Violet were revealed in a Pokemon Presents last week. Is Sean excited for more Pokemon? Or is there some Pokemon fatigue possibly setting in?

    Plus, Forspoken has been delayed into the fall, Switch Online subscribers get a semblance of a reward system, Halo Infinite gets more bad news, more TV shows are coming for Sony, and more.
