What a time it’s been – the sheer scale of the mess around Cyberpunk’s release means that we had to look at it all in its own episode, so that’s what we did! We run through the timeline of events leading to the garbage fire of year, and what it might all mean for the industry going forward.
Opening Statement: ‘we ignored the signals about the need for additional time to refine the game on the base last-gen consoles’
Pg3: ‘In terms of the certification process and the third parties – this is definitely on our side. I can only assume that they trusted that we’re going to fix things upon release, and that obviously did not come together exactly as we had planned.’ Rami Ismail twitter thread on Cert: https://twitter.com/tha_rami/status/1338978911678590984?s=21
For the final episode of the year, you’d think there wouldn’t be much news… But, you’d be mistaken! A whole lot has happened, as we look, among other goings-on, EA cutting Take Two’s grass, CD Projekt continuing their greeeaaaat run, Nintendo’s latest indie showcase, and a new Neo Geo on the way!
In the penultimate episode of 2020, Graham and Steve look at the rough launch of Cyberpunk 2077, and a whole slew of announced delays and release dates, and all of the news from this year’s Keighleys!
A short episode this week, as December normally doesn’t bring the news – but it does bring the games! Graham becomes Immortal, Rising like the Fenyx, while Steve is stuck at the Apex of… 2020? The boys also talk BioWare departures, Activision lawsuits, and Dead Cells DLC! Let’s all get musical, shall we?!
It’s beginning to look a lot like… video game awards season! Graham and Steve run through the nominees for the Keighley’s, the winners of the Video Game Accessibility Awards, Budweiser’s entry into the video game space (!), how to ‘save’ GameStop, and plenty more!
Despite having very little news, the boys still manage to have a bunch to talk about! Between the difficulty of buying stuff online, Take-Two’s new buy, record sales figures, and the lack of people buying Marvel’s Avengers, money, it turns out, talks! Well, money doesn’t, but the stuff around money helps us to talk!
Now that Graham has finally finished The Last of Us Part 2 and composed his thoughts on the game, the boys are able to go through it all and get all of their thoughts on the game, it’s events, and it’s merit out! If you don’t want to be spoiled on TLoU Part 2, maybe avoid this one, but otherwise, dive right in!
It goes without saying, we are going to spoil this game, big time, so only listen if you have finished the game, have no intention of playing it or have really bad memory, consider yourself warned!
