Season 18, Episode 22

Well, the demos start coming and they don’t stop coming.

I didn’t think we’d spend more than half of the show going over demos I’ve been playing but then again I ramble horribly so, maybe that isn’t so surprising to you.

But man, those demos. Plus, I revisit a game from NINE years ago that I finally finished – MAD MAX. There’s spoilers there, but the game was horribly received and it’s also been NINE years. And, by the way, I say it in the show, but when this game goes on sale, it’s absolutely worth picking up. For a fiver, you can’t beat the value there. Even a tenner is worth it.

I’m glad we finally got more information on Nivalis. It’s a game I’ve been looking forward to since last year’s reveal from the Cloudpunk folks, and it’s set, coincidentally, in the Cloudpunk universe. It’s like they took that third person game and made it first person, seemingly. Anyway, anything within a Cyberpunk world, and you’ve already got my attention.

PVKK, playing as Zelda in a Zelda game, and Metroid Prime 4 were all amazingly unexpected. Now we know what some of us will be playing when the Switch 2 launches.

What we will NOT be playing on the Switch 2 or anywhere else for that matter is Splinter Cell. Ubisoft, it’s been 3,942 days since a new Splinter Cell game (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise, remake, BBC radio drama, or VR exclusive) was released.
