342: Sifu, Horizon: Forbidden West and How the Ukraine Invasion Will Affect Gaming

February 28, 2022

Jason takes the lead in talking about his experience with the challenging Sifu game. Is it too hard or worth the price of entry? We all also play and review Horizon: Forbidden West. It’s the sequel to Zero Dawn following Aloy into the Forbidden West. It’s a beautiful game with a ton of great content a lot to do with a ton of dialogue. Is it too much dialogue? We also can’t help ourselves from talking about more Dying Light 2.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet were announced during Pokemon’s Direct. It’s a surprising new mainline Pokemon game coming this year. After Arceus, we never would’ve expected another game but here it comes and it looks…fine. Cyberpunk 2077 finally gets their next-gen update and a ton of fixes for the game. Is it ready for primetime? PSVR2 reveals their new design that looks lot like the PlayStation 5 and that’s a good thing. Oh and Bethesda is finally getting rid of their awful launcher in favor of Steam.

In our discussion, we talk about the recent news of Russia invading Ukraine. There are a lot of talented game developers in Ukraine and we hope this doesn’t significantly impact their development. Games like Stalker 2, Metro and more all helm in some part from Ukraine and over 400 studios are represented in the country. If you want to support the people of Ukraine during this time, you can show your support at some of these organizations:
