This week’s episode is a man short but we pedal extra hard on our game-news-and-discussion multibike to get you everything you could want or need. This week we touch on Morrowind and what we really REALLY want from an open world game, we enjoy the progression in walking-to-motorcycle delivery game Death Stranding, and we compare and contrast the Amplitude Studios 4x game Humankind with the standard fare. Plus, Apple v Epic has come to and end, what happened?? And all sorts of other newsy things!

It’s a short week so we thought we’d extend the podcast calendar for you by a day and come in on a Monday… at least that’s our excuse. This week we’re playing some new stuff like Psychonauts 2, some new-to-us stuff like Death Stranding on PC, new seasons of pain and suffering in Blood Bowl II, and new updates in No Man’s Sky. We cover the cross-gen pricing debacle at Playstation, Chinese gaming restrictions, as well as a long-time Nintendo employee calling it quits and a lot more going on in our speed run news segment! Plus, Conan Dance Remix. Join in live or in this podcast feed for more game bytie stuff!

We enjoy great games with bad titles (Aliens Fireteam Elite), play our once-a-decade sports simulation (MLB The Show 21), traverse new and old open worlds (Kingdom Come Deliverance, Morrowind), and explore the symbology of the cardinal virtues of Britannia while thumping ratmen with hammers (UO Outlands, Vermintide 2).

This week’s episode digs deep and pulls out a PLETHORA of great games and engaging video game news! We dip back into Final Fantasy 14 (it’s all the rage now) and a bit of Ultima Outlands (it’s somewhat of a rage) and For Honor (ragey) and Space Jam A New Legacy (not much of a rage but you might enjoy the discussion). We hit the Steam Deck announcement and reservation situation hard with biting commentary and very few Switch comparisons. Phil Spencer pops off about various things. Of course, we let you know about all the cool new releases and things you oughta play. Have a listen!
