Jackson Lustberg joins the crew this week to talk about Gylt, the former Google Stadia exclusive, released from purgatory to launch on every major platform. Anthony discusses the derivative roguelike Lone Ruin, while dealing with internet issues. David played the laundromat/arcade business simulator Arcade Paradise. They also slide into a discussion about the merits of live-service.
For news, The Division 2 community is split over whether or not Ubisoft’s punishments for bug exploiters is justified and if Xbox should cancel the Perfect Dark reboot after a report surfaced that The Initiative hasn’t made it very far in development after 2+ years.
Anthony Shelton hosts and produces the Gaming Trend podcast and creates opinion videos occasionally on YouTube. He carries some of the strongest opinions among the staff and is generally harder to impress. But if impressed, he sings developers' praises just as loudly. He typically plays everything except horror and most RTS, but genres he gravitates towards are platformers, FPS, racing, roguelikes, fighting, and loot-based games. He has quit Twitter and uses Threads. Follow him at iamashelton.
