In this week’s episode of The Gaming Outsider podcast, we welcome Eric Sandler from Relle Plays on YouTube to the show to discuss the latest and greatest in gaming.

News this week includes a potential Game of Thrones game by Bethesda that Target may have leaked. Microsoft continues to negotiate cross play with Sony. Also, Secret of Mana is getting a remake on PS4 and PS Vita.

Scott and Josh sit down and review Uncharted: Lost Legacy for the Playstation 4. Josh gives his early impressions of Everybody’s Golf, the latest in the Hot Shots Golf series. Eric also gives No Man’s Sky a spin to see how the game has changed after a year of being on the market.

Our community topic is all about the double jump mechanic and its purpose in gaming. Ever question why games include double jumping? We dig a little deeper into the subject and talk about our favorite games that use the mechanic. Afterwards we read a few of our community responses.
