Shaun, Jon and guest host Vanessa tackle a bevy of new gaming and cool media news.
Lots of big changes this week on the PC side with Steam completely changing how their ratings are calculated. Digital Homicide throws a tantrum after Steam ban and moves into legal actions. Otherwise Nioh gets a firm release date while South Park: The Fractured But Whole gets pushed back. We get a bit more out of the Resident Evil 7 demo with some additional content that was just patched in giving us a further glimpse of what we are dealing with.
Squanchtendo and Crows Crows Crows prove that lying is effective for forging solid business partnerships. Panzermadels: The Tank Dating Simulator stimulates Jon in all the right ways, plus tanks can 100% jump. While Bioshock Remastered is apparently not so remastered.
Lastly we do a deep dive into Thea: The Awakening; a game that none of us had heard about but Jon and Shaun have definitely put hours into since it's discovery. And of course some new IN THE WANGS with Earthlock and Osiris: New Dawn, so check it out!!
