374: TRVR? Interview, Starship Troopers Extermination and Playstation Showcase

June 05, 2023

This week we invite a local musician who has an exciting track record in the industry. His name is TRVR? and he hails from Fort Worth. At the age of 16 he was on American Idol and made it to the top 24, he continued his music career and now makes a full-time living playing music. In this episode, we chat about some Tears of the Kingdom and how games truly can be an artistic medium. We also discuss music in games, some of TRVR’s favorite indie games and much more! His new single “Better Off Alone” is an awesome song for the summer, stay tuned for the end of the podcast to hear the song and make sure you follow him on YouTube and his Instagram!

We review the early access game Starship Troopers: Extermination. This game is great, we’ve had a blast taking down bugs with up to 15 other players in our squads. It hits the feeling of the movies well. The content is a bit light, but it’s got a great foundation!

We also dig into our favorite reveals from the Playstation Showcase and the Meta Quest showcase. There were a lot of new games revealed, although it was not as exciting as we had hoped…especially on the Playstation front.

Lastly, is Battlefield 2042 finally good? Yes, yes it is. Brett is back into it and he wants you to do the same. It has come a long way since release and the game is incredibly fun to play now. The map designs are great, the weapons are plentiful and the Battlefield moments are epic. It’s time now more than ever to pick this game up and join us on the battlefield!
