Greetings, and welcome to Episode 24 of Push to Talk, The One About What Not to Do. In this episode, Joe, Jan, and Bill discuss what they've been playing over the last week and, surprise, it's a lot of Destiny 2 for two thirds of the crew. This conversation is quick to transition into observations of several high-profile studios making very dumb mistakes lately, such as the Destiny 2 nerfs by Bungie, the lack of matchmaking in The Division 2 raid, and a genuine question about how near game-breaking bugs make it into updates when a single experienced player could have caught it beforehand. The crew finishes up this episode talking about E3 and how it seems more and more big names are skipping it, so basically everyone goes away sad.
On this week’s Push to Talk, titled The One About One In and One Out, Jan, Joe, and Bill discuss the week’s hottest gaming stories, including Randy Pitchford getting into a Twitter war with someone from Game Informer, the announcement of the Valve Index VR HMD, and Epic Games acquiring the studio behind one of Joe’s (secret) favorite games, Rocket League. We also get into how Jan might clear an entire room in his house for his crazy VR obsession, and how Bill uses Jan as a sort of technological beta test. It’s a good one, folks.
