Scott and Evan sit down to talk about their week in video games, starting with impressions of Chivalry 2, the long overdue sequel to Torn Banner Studios’ breakout hit of *checks notes* 2012!? Scott’s been messing about with EXTREME-RANGE SNIPING in Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2, and it is not exactly his favorite one of these types of games. Evan’s been fully immersed in the world of RGG Studio, having finally wrapped up his Yakuza: Like a Dragon playthrough, and immediately moving on to also complete the also enjoyable Yakuza spinoff game Judgment. (You should probably play one of these games, just saying.) Finally, we veer into E3 coverage and talk about the announcements that have us the most hyped in a year where the release schedule is lighter than usual.

Very few games let you charge into a battle with a chicken in one hand, and an axe in another while announcing at a loud volume that “I’ve soiled myself!” as I slice the arm off of my opponent. This certainly tells you the game’s tone. Chivalry 2 is the long-awaited sequel to the 2012 multiplayer hit Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, and this first-person melee medieval slasher has arrived in spectacular fashion. Equal parts comedy and gore, Chivalry 2 has dazzled me with its complex controls, deep systems, and ability to entertain in all forms; this is a crucial purchase wherever you play.
