This week on the Press X to Start Podcast: DJ, Sean, Marcus & Doug talk about Death Stranding, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare, Google Stadia's diminishing returns and much much more!
What We've Been Playing - Time code: 03:03
- Doug, DJ & Sean indulge in their usual daily dose of Overwatch, Gundam & Apex; Sean & DJ give Terry Bogard a spin in Smash Bros; Sean, DJ & Marcus talk about the unforgiving chaos that is COD's campaign & Spec Ops mode; and then the three of them talk in-depth about their early impressions of 2019's most divisive game and premiere walking simulator Death Stranding (though DJ ain't even play it so his opinion counts less).
Gaming News - Time code: 38:00
- The quick hits: The Pokedex for Sword & Shield leaks and reveals that Bulbasaur & Squirtle have been abandoned, Bioware drops their annual "Is a new Mass Effect on the way?" tease, A new job listing at Guerrilla Games further hints at Horizon sequel development, Apex Legends takes center stage as EA's main annual shooter, The Shenmue director promises that the train will continue to sputter along after 3, Dragon Ball Kakarot to unsurprisingly feature Majin Buu saga and bizarre Days Gone/Death Stranding crossover allows you to fuel Deacon's bike with "BB Juice" (yes...we know).
- The heavy hitters: 2019 sees a 28 Billion dollar increase in video game spending; We give a late look at Blizzcon and critique their "apology"; Google Stadia's launch comes with a laundry list of diminishing returns; Sony's big boss, Jim Ryan, addresses concerns about Playstation's future & Shuhei Yoshida passes the torch to Guerrilla Games prez, Hermann Hulst.
