The Inner Gamer,

284: Ghost of Tsushima, Black Ops Cold War and DC vs. Marvel in Gaming

August 31, 2020

This week we’re finally featuring our spoiler-free review of Ghost of Tsushima! We’ve been trying to power through this game but there are SO MANY GOOD THINGS ABOUT IT! We’ve been taking our time. Fortunately, we invite Patreon supporter and friend of the podcast Jason Hobbs on to discuss having beat it once and going through it now for a second time.

In our news, we talk about Opening Night Live from Gamescom hosted by Geoff Keighley. It had several game announcements, follow-ups and more from the hottest games this year and beyond. They capped it with an awesome gameplay showcase from Ratchet and Clank A Rift Apart. We also talk about the awesome reveal and later confusing purchasing methods for Call of Duty Black Ops Cold War. Yes, it’s a mouthful. In other news, Halo Infinite is having a shakeup with them talking about maybe ditching Xbox One support (but likely not) and a lot of veterans coming back to help the game see to the finish line.

In our discussion, we talk about the fight between DC Comics and Marvel as they compete for the game space. We have had a great lineup of Arkham games up to this point from Rocksteady and then this week Marvel’s Avengers comes out with Miles Morales not far behind. However, next year we have Gotham Knights and the following year after that Suicide Squad. Will they all be enough to keep us engaged? Only time will tell.

Our friend Jason has also launched a new podcast called the Skip, Rent, Buy Podcast. It’s a podcast featuring movie reviews, industry news and various discussions about the movie world. You can check it out on Instagram here. Find the podcast on your favorite podcast app.

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.
