In the news, there are new games from SEGA’s Yakuza studio, most notably Yakuza Kiwami 2 and a game based on Fist of the North Star. Xbox One X pre-orders have gone live and surprisingly they are selling faster than any other Xbox pre-order. Square Enix have announced a full 3D remake for Secret of Mana and their Final Fantasy XV/Assassin’s Creed crossover event has gone live.
A Nintendo Direct showcase gave us a handful of exclusive and timed-exclusive titles for the Switch. Most notably, No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again is a direct sequel to the original game. Super Meat Boy Forever was also announced from Team Meat, which is a sequel that introduces some new gameplay elements. Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition is the console debut of the acclaimed Twin Peaks-esque adventure game. Lastly, Shovel Knight is getting a new campaign expansion called King of Cards.
Later in the show, a listener question prompted us to discuss whether or not we finish games even if we are not enjoying ourselves. A lot of gamers have a problem where they feel the need to finish what they started, which is silly considering the amount of game releases to choose from these days.
During the final segment, we talk a little bit more about The Escapists 2 and give our final thoughts on Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. We found it to be a fun experience overall, with familiar gameplay, beautiful set pieces, and great character interactions.
Thanks for listening to the show!
