Firmware Update 2.19: All Caught Up

So now that we’ve spent several hours catching up on 2018 and 2019, Joe & Malcolm get together to…spend several hours catching up on 2020! We’ve relaunched with a new monthly format, but we did that in the middle of a good year for games, so with this we’re all up to speed. Come on in and have a listen, will ya?

Talking Points: Touching on Crystal Dynamics’s upcoming Avengers game; lessons learned from The Friends of Ringo Ishikawa; Persona 5 Royal improves on an all-time classic; Malcolm finds a mobile game worth a damn; Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a game for our times; the redemption of Destiny 2; Streets of Rage 4 is a worthy successor; the knee-buckling beauty of Ghost of Tsushima; Final Fantasy VII Remake is the game it needed to be; a house divided by The Last of Us Part II.

Programming Note: The discussions for Final Fantasy VII Remake and The Last of Us Part II are filled to the brim with spoilers! Here are the timestamps for each conversation if you want to skip and come back to them later:

Final Fantasy VII Remake: 1h 49m

The Last of Us Part II: 2h 20m 23s

Hosts: Malcolm Spinedi (@PSMalc), Joe Garcia (@Wons23)
