Cyberpunk 2077 has been out for a whole month now - have our boys finished it already or will it be another Divinity or Witcher 3 slogfest?
The episode we discuss mechanics and how the game plays - not too many story spoilers.
Our boys have been wandering around Night City for 2 weeks now: have they been enjoying the ride or just driving on the wrong side of the road? Plus, what does Luke think about the UI? All pertinent questions that are answered in this weeks episode.
This weeks episode contains more ammunition in the great PC vs Console debate. Tony and Luke have had very different experiences with Cyberpunk 2077 so far. Our boys mostly talk about the mechanics and their general experience with the game so no spoiler warning needed.
After 85 hours our boys have finally saved the Divinity Universe and completed the game. Did they continue to love pants off this game or did the gloss wear off as the story went on? What are they going to play next and will Cyberpunk get delayed again? Listen in and enjoy.
Well we really thought we would have finished this by now but we're still going through our play thorough. Listen to us get more jaded as we ramble on as we try to finish this monster of an RPG off.
Yes I know, I spoke in first person - sue me!
Join us this week as we talk more Divinity, Borderlands 3 and 2, Gears of War: Tactics, Phoenix Point, Stardew Valley and Fallout 76 - yes that's right, we have a metric buckettonne of games for you this week!!!
The Original Sin.
Tony an Luke dive in to an older game this episode trying out Divinity: Original Sin for the first time for both of them.
Originally released in 2014 it is an older game but the advantage of that is there is an enhanced edition which lets our boys play in a modernised version.

So they remade the game that sold a million PlayStation systems but did they really?
Final Fantasy VII is one of Tony's favorite games of all time so he's bound to have loved the new updated version of it right? Right????

roject Firebreak continues as does Luke's run through the Frozen Wilds (Tony has already finished it..) Are the Wilds really that frozen? Is there a good reason for them to be frozen in the first place and do we love digital snow or even really need it?

With only a week to play since last episode due to actually having a life Tony and Luke have still managed to generate some content for us. Luke has been to a LAN and talks about party games and Tony waxes lyrical about Civ6 and I don't think he even complains too much. TOO much
Diving in to their Steam libraries looking for unplayed games our pair find the interesting 4 player co-op Warhammer title Vermintide. Recruiting a couple of outsiders Luke and Tony jump in to a Skaven swarm slaughtering schedule of delight.

Our intrepid heroes have switched to The Witcher 3 after Tony's failed attempts at Hellblade. Dipping back in to their Action RPG roots join us to see what Luke and Tony think of this now somewhat aging tale.
Playing a more traditional RPG means Tony and Luke must have a much closer gameplay experience story wise right, right? How have our heroes fared in their continuing conquest of the Tiers? Listen in to find out.
Tony and Luke continue their conquest of the Tiers in Kyros' name but are their stories converging as the campaign moves on? You could tune in to find out but they'll probably be talking about something else entirely.....
