Quick heads up before we begin! We ran into several technical issues at the beginning of our recording so Toby’s section of What We’ve Been Playing has had to be removed, sorry for the inconvenience.
Right, with that being said, welcome to Episode 63 of The Finger Guns Podcast! This week Rossko, Sean, Greg and Toby get deep into the weeks biggest games news, namely the release of The Last of Us Part II and our impressions of the game so far. Rossko, Toby and Greg delve into the games mechanics and share what they’re liking and what they’re not in Ellie’s new, brutal adventure. There’s a lot to get into (don’t worry, it’s all very spoiler-free) and Sean talks about why he’s holding off on jumping in right now.
Elsewhere, we want to get into the unnecessary act of review-bombing, the reasons behind it and what purpose it really serves the consumer, and those looking to make a purchase. Are the people who aren’t part of the ‘industry’ really going to care? What brings a gamer to hate on a game so much they feel the need to push it on to other people? What can Metacritic do to combat it?
Finally, Toby and Sean share their favourite indies that have been available as demos as part of the Steam Summer Festival. They’ve been playing an awful lot of them and share their favourites.
Our hands-on this week? Well *cough*, Exo One, Haven, InMost, Windjammers 2, Fights In Tight Spaces, Moncage, Children of Silent Town, Imagine Lifetimes, Nine Lives Noir, Metamorphosis, Dinosaur Fossil Hunter, Nuts, 100 Days, Waking, Spellbreak, Behold The Kickmen, Fortnite Season 3, Call of Duty WWII, Golf on Mars, Beyond Blue and more.
A lot of games. A lot of heated discussion. This is a good one.
