The Inner Gamer,

385: Spider-Man 2, Alan Wake 2 and Blizzcon 2023

November 06, 2023

We give our full review on Spider-Man 2 and compare it to the original. Which game had a better story? Did this one deliver all we wanted? What about the gameplay? We also give our first look at Alan Wake 2. This game is frightening but incredibly well done with a lot of unique new features we haven’t seen in many games. Is it walking simulator? Sure. Does it have a great story? 100%!

Brett is really excited about an Animal Crossing mini-game coming to Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth but the rest of the guys aren’t. We also talk about all the other announcements at the Xbox Partner Preview.

Brett and Austin played The Finals for the open beta. Austin likes it! We had a good time playing and share some of our stories, dive deeper into the gameplay and talk about when we may see the release date.

Finally, we look at Blizzcon 2023 and all the announcements for Overwatch, Diablo 4, World of Warcraft and more. There are a lot of updates coming post-Xbox acquisition but is it enough? Where was Starcraft?
