Avery returns to the podcast and brings with him a plethora of games to talk about. The other guys also played games, but let's be honest nothing of real consequence. Am i right folks?......(cough)...... Anyway Avery played and beat Uncharted the Last Legacy and has nothing but great things to say about it. He also played Mario+Rabbids and while the Rabbids did everything they could to destroy his enjoyment of this game Avery has nothing but praise. In a hefty news segment that eats up the rest of the show, the group discuss Games with Gold and Playstation Plus, the Crystal Dualshock PS4 controllers and DJ's annoyance with Sony's design sensibilities. Avery and Marcus get hyped for the next No More Heroes and Marcus loses his mind for Street Fighter's new character Menat. PSVR gets a price drop, raising insteresting questions for the future of VR, and the group throws down about Shadow of War's tribute to a fallen producer and trust me it was a pretty divisive converstation.

Cam's back in the driving seat for another episode of Press X to Start and the gang's all here.

DJ's signifigant other or better half depending on your parlance Sheriene joins us to talk about how infuriatingly fun the 4-player local co-op game is and DJ rounds everything out with old but new to switch game Ironclad. In news the delay of Crackdown frustrates Avery as Microsoft continues to act like they don't have a first party problem, Marcus "The TellTale apologist" argues the semantics of whether the new Planet of the Apes game is a game and Avery attempts and fails to make the new PSN update seem interesting. As Always the group ends things with a rounding game of Who Am I, where the question is asked will Cameron get on the board this time.
