This is still not up on Spotify or Apple Podcasts. Just a heads up because usually it gets uploaded pretty fast.

Solid roundup and funny to see everything already laid out at least a week before the event.

In regard to Fallout 76, are we really still pretending that there is any correlation between the number of people streaming a game and its quality? That Kotaku expose laid bare how trivial it is for publishers to artificially inflate engagement metrics through paid streamers and embedded video players across their vast advertising platforms.

It's at the point now where they're derailing their own press conferences because the influencers are obnoxiously interrupting every five seconds with fake excitement.

So does this mean we get another shot at witcher 3 for goty cause switch. It hurt seeing it get turned down cause most couldnt find the time at home to play it. Now that its on switch 1 hour at a time on a commute and you can beat it in...a month or so.

@zoofame: Kotaku kind of has a vested financial interest against streamers, seeming as how they directly compete with the traditional gaming press. Not just over the audiences, but over the same ad dollars and industry access.

Sure, EA paid a ton of streamers to play Apex for a weekend, but those types of campaigns are prohibitively expensive to keep up.

Jeff's enthusiasm for Doom Eternal is really making me want to replay Doom (2016) again; that game is just so freaking good.

I really hope I'm not coming off as abrasive here but the Psychonauts talk really highlights that none of them gave the game a chance seeing as how the combat, traversal and even the art styles change everytime you enter another person's mind. I understand everyone's time is limited and no one can play every game but describing Psychonauts based on the first thirty minutes is really doing the game a disservice.

It would be like only playing the first 30 minutes of MGS2 then referring to the rest of the game as Snake sneaking around an oil tanker.

Wait, didn't Youngblood get confirmed as being non-canon right out of the gate? I might be misremembering it but I was under the impression that this was sort of a what-if scenario.

Why does the GB video player continue to suck, so many times in both the download version as well as the native video player version it will simply refuse to stream. So bloody frustrating
