Episode 46 of our gaming podcast, The Gamer Pros Show (GPS), is now live! This week we are discussing Lost Sphear and Celeste, along with all the big news, which is finally starting to trickle out more consistently.
While we have had a few weeks of slow news, we got a few significant items such as Red Dead Redemption 2 being delayed until October 26th. This isn’t a huge delay and, quite frankly, I’d rather have Rockstar take more time to polish this highly-anticipated game and get it to where it needs to be. Along with this announcement, there were a number of beautiful screenshots, which we talk about in detail.
In other news, Dead Cells is being ported to console sometime at the end of the year. This roguelike found a lot of success on PC and has been met with critical acclaim. It should see a lot of success on Switch especially.
Epic Games have stated that they will be shutting down their free-to-play MOBA, Paragon, on April 26th. Their reasoning is ultimately lack of playerbase, though the success of Fortnite is definitely a large factor as well.
Bungie have released a road map for Destiny 2, which neither of us found to be that impressive or significant. Details of any paid expansions are absent, which means it will be a long few months for avid players. This only reconfirms that the game is still having the same issues as its predecessor.
In the back half of the show, we talk about our time with Lost Sphear, which Jordan ultimately found disappointing. The combat has a good amount of depth to it, but trips over itself during poorly balanced boss fights. This, mixed with the fact that characters don’t stand out very much, make the new game from Tokyo RPG Factory one that can surely be skipped.
Celeste is the game that everyone is talking about right now, and for good reason! This beautiful game is challenging and full of personality. It’s not only a brutal Super Meat Boy-esque platformer, but also a tale of coping with anxiety and depression. Next week we will be discussing it even further, so stay tuned.
We hope you enjoy the show. Thanks for listening!
