The Inner Gamer,

274: The Last of Us Part 2, Star Wars Squadrons and Next-Gen Features

June 22, 2020

After several delays, The Last of Us Part 2 has arrived. Austin dives into the first few hours to share his initial impressions and the hope that the leaks aren’t as concerning as people made it out to be. Brett beats Ghost Recon Breakpoint and was less than satisfied with the ending.

We talk about EA Play mostly in the news featuring games like Star Wars Squadrons, updates for Apex Legends, the future of next-gen and more. We also talk about the KFConsole, Pokemon’s new updates include the reveal of Pokemon Snap and what PAX looks like this year.

Our discussion has us looking at the things that will define next-gen gaming. We’re looking at things like full customization, instant loading, crossplay, streaming and much more.

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.
