This week on The Finger Guns Podcast Rossko, Sean and Paul delve into the weeks gaming news, primarily the fallout of Xbox’s lukewarm Gameplay Showcase. What was needed to really make it sing? Are Microsoft destined to make the same mistakes as the last generation? And what does this mean for PlayStation’s future marketing for PS5? Will they hold back or pick up the pieces with a showcase of their own? Time will tell, there are excellent points made by Sean and Paul in this conversation so it’s well worth a listen.
Elsewhere a new Prince of Persia game was revealed! Well, kind of. We dust off our sands of time to decipher what the cancellation of Redemption meant for Ubisoft’s subsequent output.
Also, what is the Mafia Twitter account teasing? With a delightfully vague tweet tongues were certainly wagging as to what’s next for the crime series and we try to figure out what it could all mean. We also discover that Paul forgot he watched the new Last of Us 2 trailer this week when we attempt to ask him about it.
We also talk hands-on with Arcade Spirits, Sean *finally* starting Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Rossko jumping back into The Last of Us and The Eternal Castle Remastered, the shiny new version of a game that never existed. Finally, Sean returns with another ‘name-that-game-by-the-character-list’ Trivia Challenge, Paul tells us about his Game of the Year So Far, Rossko tries to explain the wonders of colonialism in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
Yeah, you’re going to want to listen to understand that statement….
