EA closed beloved studio Visceral Games while famed game director Amy Hennig was in the middle of making a Star Wars game. Then they revealed some of their plans around the loot boxes in Star Wars Battlefield II fresh on the heals of the hoopla around loot boxes in Lord of The Rings: Shadow of War. So EA aren't flavour of the month. So in this podcast we spend some time talking about Visceral Games sublime Dead Space game and grumpily wondering what the hell EA are doing! Along with Netflix Club where we talk about The Visit and Gerald's Game before talking about the games that have kept us locked to our screens. Including Hue, which, at the time of writing this, is free on PS+. Soak us up, we're free!
Films galore! We've barely had time to play any games! That's not true, but we've been watching more than playing! I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore, the new Death Note film, Okja, Arrival, Mad Max have all been viewed, and Dave has been on a horror binge and has watched a host of scary films. Some games have been played, of course. Hope you enjoy it!
Dave knocks another game of the back log, so we open with a look at Child of Light. The beautiful small game from Ubisoft. Ant falls in love with a Statik, a PSVR game scooped up in the first big VR sale, which we also talk about, along with Dunkirk and a host of other films, the PS+ price hike and the newest games that come with it. Of course we veer of into a myriad of tangents and we invite you along.
Oh, and find out which animal Ant's mother-in-law thinks best represents his love making ability thanks to new PS4 game "That's You".
With next to no news to talk about, chat turns to film and what we've been up to while staying in! Things get a little dark, well, very dark if we're honest, when Dave tells me about a film I've never seen or even heard of, a film Dave refuses to entertain and that has disgusted me. the rest of the the chat, GT, VR some upcoming games to watch out for and a bunch of films, is much lighter. So join us for a very chilled out chat. Enjoy.
So SONY have had a little event where they officially showed of some new consoles. A new, slimmer PS4 and the all new PS4 Pro. But who cares? No really, who is this for? Find out our thoughts in episode 20 of We Don't Go Out! Pour us in your ears and let us infect your thoughts... in a very level headed births way.
In other gaming news, San Fransisco feel asleep. It must have, because Shigeru Miyamoto, an actual gaming legend, a God among geeks, landed in San Fransisco, a tech hub full of geeks, and managed to not get spotted until he walked out on stage during the Apple Key Notes! Miyamoto on stage for Apple! It's like when Sonic appeared on Nintendo. People said it would never happen! But it did and we talk about it! We also talk about the new PS4 update (one word: Folders!) Dave has to make his yearly decision. FIFA or PES, PES or FIFA! What will he do?
Platinum Games making a Star Fox game for Nintendo, why isn't this clicking! And Host's Ant and Dave look back on Lion Head Studios (1996 - 2016) and take a look at good games on Playstation if you want to avoid blood, guts and guns - or shooty, shooty, bang, bang if you're Dave.
