We got some hot Thanksgiving vacation talk at the top of show. In the news, Phil Spencer declares that no one is asking for VR in a controversial statement made at XO19, a new PS5 patent hints at possible sharing tech with their next generation content, Facebook buys Beat Saber devs and Nintendo is rumored to have no less than 3 Metroid games in the works. All this and more on episode 195 of Rated G for Gamers.
Arguably the biggest game release of the year dropped this past Friday, the new Hideo Kojima epic Death Stranding. As polarizing reviews come in, Dan and Dave give their take on this wildly indescribable game. With only a few hours under their belt, they certainly are floored by the story and visuals. In other news, Horizon Zero Dawn 2 possibly leaked via suspicious game dev job listing, Pokémon Sword and Shield leaker revealed and Hermen Hulst from Guerilla Games takes over Sony Worldwide Studios.
E3 is almost upon us and Dan and Dave just can’t wait. They break down their predictions as well as hear from some special guests from the Gaming Podcast Alliance. Also, a little game called Death Stranding got some bombshell news. We got a release date and a brand new trailer with gameplay footage and a peak at what this whole crazy world is about. So check out episode 168, the E3 predictions show, of Rated G for Gamers.
