The Inner Gamer,

269: Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Unreal Engine 5 and The Half-Life Story So Far

May 19, 2020

Brett was bored, friends were playing Ghost Recon Breakpoint and therefore he was convinced to buy it. This game launched like a trash fire but now it’s surprisingly pretty good! We talk about the story as a whole, all the changes they’ve brought to it to customize the experience for the player and much more. It’s a massive world with lots to do. It does have some of the Ubisoft tropes but overall it’s way better than expected.

Summer Game Fest kicked off with Geoff working with Tony Hawk to reveal Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 Remastered. Who’s excited ? We also see him sit down with Tim Sweeney to reveal Unreal Engine 5 playing on a PS5. It looks bonkers good. Not to mention Sony added more to the pie by doing an awesome 18 min gameplay demo of Ghosts of Tshushima. It was a good week for Playstation fans indeed.

With our full Half Life Alyx reveal coming soon, we dive into the story of Half-Life so far. Brett quickly navigates the whole timeline from before HL1 all the way up through HL2 Episode 2 and Portal 2. It’s a big story and full of amazing science, characters and intrigue that we felt it would be a fun discussion. It’s a bit long but well worth the listen!
