Life is Strange: True Colors Review
As FlipScreen Games' resident Life is Strange superfan, Pete has been been playing the latest entry in the series but does True Colors live up to his expectations for a Life is Strange game? Steve, on the other hand, has been spending some time in arcades and getting far too sweaty on Dancing Stage (DDR) machines. We talk about our history with arcades, our favourite arcade games as kids (as well as some modern titles), and we also hear from the community!

What Defines DLC in 2021?
This week Pete and Steve ask the question "What is the definition DLC in 2021?" and apparently a lot of you had thoughts on this too! Whether we were successful in defining it or not remains to be seen… Before that, Steve also got hands on with the early-access beta of one of his most anticipated games of 2021, Diablo II: Resurrected.

Welcome to FlipScreen Games
What's up, internet?! Welcome to the FIRST EVER FlipScreen Games Podcast! On this inaugural episode we spend way too long talking about Pete's latest obsession — the hot new MOBA, Pokémon Unite. Steve's been away for the week so aside from crashing many, many planes on Microsoft Flight Simulator he had a lot of thoughts about some board games on the first episode of this video game podcast. We also answer a ton of listener questions from the Question Block including the eternal debate of which is better… SNES or Genesis?
