The Inner Gamer,

380: Baldur’s Gate 3, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Gamescom 2023

August 28, 2023

Baldur’s Gate 3 has consumed our lives. We invite our friend Joe from the Nerd Sloth Podcast onto the show to talk about this incredible CRPG from Larian Studios. This game has so much content, great choice-driven gameplay and amazing classes that create a ton of diversity in the content. We also share our first impressions on Texas Chainsaw Massacre the game, available on Xbox Game Pass.

We then discuss Gamescom Opening Night Live. There was another stage crasher at a Keighley event which we hoped they had learned from at The Game Awards. Regardless, the show was overall very good with nothing exciting and new, but we saw some great gameplay and extended trailers from some of our most anticipated games.

Jason picks up the $50 Red Dead Redemption conversion and it turns out it may actually be worth the price of admission. Finally, we dive into the new features in Cyberpunk 2077 2.0 and talk about Playstation Portal.
