This week on The Gaming Outsider podcast, we welcome Stefan Rombing from the community to discuss the latest and greatest in gaming.
News this week includes EA Games shutting down Visceral Games. What does this say about the current state of the industry? Nintendo jumps into the cross-platform play realm while we question why Sony still drags their feet on this issue. Also, we discuss IGN purchasing Humble Bundle and the possible concern surrounding it.
Games we discuss on the show this week are:
- South Park: The Fractured but Whole
- Golf Story
- The Evil Within 2
- Jackbox Party Pack 4
- Deus Ex: Human Revolution
- Ghost Recon: Wildlands
Our community topic this week centers around character stats in RPGs. How do we tend to build our characters? You’ll hear responses from our community members as well. Also, listen to Scott get hated on for liking Styx.
Don’t forget to drop us an iTunes review. The feedback is greatly appreciated.
Big thanks to Stefan for joining us this week. We hope you enjoy the show!
