The Inner Gamer,

270: Deep Rock Galactic, Final Fantasy 15 and Will Mixer Survive?

May 25, 2020

We regroup on a lot of games this week. Deep Rock Galactic, a game we’ve covered multiple times on the podcast in Early Access, has now released in 1.0. Since the game dropped on Early Access it has come a long way and we talk about all the great improvements they’ve made to get to this point and make it into a solid game worth your time with your friends. Austin also revisits Final Fantasy 15, Brett is still playing Animal Crossing and we talk a bit more on Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.

In our news, Call of Duty’s next title may be Black Ops Cold War and Respawn Entertainment is branching off into a separate studio to focus exclusively on Apex Legends. In other news, Amazon Game Studio’s first game releases and CD Projekt Red becomes the most valuable game company in Europe beating out Ubisoft.

Our discussion this week revolves around the streaming platform Mixer. Since it’s launch in 2016, it’s been renamed and acquired by Microsoft. They’ve been partnering with big streamers to try and increase their growth but has it worked? We talk about their slow, but still upward growth and what they need to do to advance that growth further.

Special thanks to Crazzie Pro Gear. They provided us with some incredible pro-level backpacks for carrying our computer equipment to all our events. If you want a bag yourself, head over to their website to purchase one! A portion of the proceeds go to support The Inner Gamer.
