The Inner Gamer,

169: Pillars of Eternity 2 Deadfire, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Fortnite

May 07, 2018

This week we play the sequel to the award-winner RPG by Obsidian Entertainment, Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. This game changes the scenery to a series of archipelagos where you and your team follow an exciting and deep story from island to island. We also play the official release of The Forest with the help of one of our listeners Scott. He joins us to talk about why The Forest is a survival game you need to play.

In our news, we focus heavily on the Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer which showcases some new story bits as well as some surprises of who and what we see from the original game. In other news, Boston Uprising is on fire in the Overwatch League and TotalBiscuit (aka the Cynical Brit) is retiring due to his health.

Our discussion this week is all about the rise of Fortnite. It’s huge, there’s no doubt about that, and we dive deep into it’s slow start and rise to the top. PUBG definitely has a competitor on its hands and Fortnite shows no signs of slowing down.
