Scott’s got some thoughts on Call of the Sea and a nifty little dungeon crawler called Slasher’s Keep. Evan shares his impressions of the Monster Hunter Rise demo on Switch, and he has some updates on Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Spider-Man: Remastered. We dive into this week’s big announcements from Nvidia and what their impact may be. Also, this is our first ever live-streamed recording, we somehow managed to produce a tighter, shorter show! The Internet! It’s amazing!
This week on Quicksave, Evan and Scott have to play catch-up on two weeks worth of gaming since our last check-in. Scott has some final thoughts on Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey and some additional impressions of Valhalla, as well as reflections on the Definitive Edition releases of Mafia I & II. Evan is still straddling two Yakuza games at once and has some new adventures to share, plus a brief look at Umurangi Generation. Evan also has some hands-on impression of his first few hours with the PlayStation 5 hardware, and the guys reflect on what it’s like to revisit Halo Reach and Halo: Combat Evolved over one (and two, respectively) decades after their release. Oh, and Evan complains about HDR in Windows because that business still doesn’t work right.
‘Twas two nights before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except Evan’s mouse. Join Evan and Scott as they chit chat away about some of the games that they’ve recently played. We’ve got Yakuza, Cyberpunk, and Spiderman this week, and some graphical settings you may want to tweak. There are sales and chicken computers and remakes abound, and we wrap it all up with an email we’ve found.
This week, hear all about the THRILLING conclusion of the dual-plot TV Saga, some further impressions of Cyberpunk 2077, discussion about the joys of cross-generation enhancements and upgrades on the PS5, further adventures in Thieving on the Seas, and some EXCITING developments in the Weekly Hades Cross-Save Check In! Evan and Scott are both concerned about the Codemasters acquisition, and do their best punditry around what Nvidia might have in store at their upcoming event in January.
Also, we have our first listener email! We’re forced to wrestle with choosing favorites, but even worse, our own storied pasts as insufferable pre-teens.
Oh no this is a big one. Did a big game come out this week or something? Probably not. Let’s talk about TVs, small indie games, and older releases instead! Okay yes, fine, we have Cyberpunk 2077 impressions.
We’ve survived THE CYBER FIVE (blech) and have exciting news to share about new menu items from your favorite Quick Service Restaurant! Scott shares his thoughts about Counterplay Games’ Godfall in a brand new “segment,” and talks about his journey through Assassin’s Creed Odyssey (yes, the previous release). Evan has a lot to say about Immortals: Fenyx Rising and why it might be the best choice among Ubi’s releases this season, and he reveals a new twist in the saga of his seemingly cursed gaming PC before the quick weekly check-in on Hades. Also Cyberpunk is looming on the horizon waiting to consume everything else, so uh, enjoy your other games while they last.
This week, Evan talks about diving headfirst into Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Yakuza 0 at the same time, and Scott gives us the rundown on the PlayStation 5 and what it’s like to come back to PlayStation after several years away (assuming you can get your hands on one).
