349: Roller Champions, The Artful Escape and Final Fantasy 16

June 06, 2022

In episode 349, we review Roller Champions, The Artful Escape and The Crew 2. Brett and Jason both play Roller Champions, a roller derby game that reminds us of Rocket League. It took some time to figure out the controls but once you learn, it’s a fun multiplayer experience. We also played The Artful Escape on Game Pass. This is an Annapurna game where you play the nephew of a folk musician trying to find his sound across the cosmos. Lastly, Brett tries The Crew 2 from Ubisoft and is sorely disappointed. Find out why.

In the news, we talk about several new game showcases such as Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet and the empty feeling Sonic Frontiers.

In the discussion, we talk about the big reveals from Sony’s State of Play including the Resident Evil 4 Remake and Final Fantasy 16. We also talk about predictions from the upcoming Summer Games Fest.
