Hosted by Gamer’s Edition Editor Mike Plant, with guests Jack Turner, Andy Laughlin and Luke Wakeham, this week we mosey on into the Wild West with Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2, survive nuclear destruction in Bethesda’s Fallout 76 and discuss the finer points of Microsoft’s "XO 2018" livestream.
We also pay homage to the late, great marvel that was Stan Lee – including bringing you the details of some of his unique Guinness World Records titles, such as the first game he made one of his famous cameos in. Also in the news, we react to Ryan Reynolds’ “pika-pika” as we provide our thoughts on the first trailer for the live-action Pokémon: Detective Pikachu movie.
Elsewhere we discuss gaming’s first “Continue” screen, take a moment to appreciate the new (and youngest) Tetris World Champion and introduce our listeners to “Boss Fight”, a new videogames quiz designed to put our panel to the test each and every week.
