398: Senua’s Saga Hellblade 2, xDefiant and Content Warning

May 27, 2024

Austin reviews Senua’s Saga: Hellblade 2. Xbox had a lot riding on Ninja Theory deliving a banger with this game but unfortunately it doesn’t live up to the first one aside from a mega graphics upgrade. Brett also dives into xDefiant, the new shooter from Ubisoft featuring characters from all their major franchises such as Watch Dogs, The Division, Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell and Far Cry. We also review Content Warning. A game developed by a few people and costing under 8 dollars, this game provides hours of fun with friends. Record something scary, record it and go viral. That’s the pitch but unfortunately it rarely ever goes your way!

We also talk about the reveal of Assassin’s Creed Shadows. No gameplay yet but this game is set in feudal Japan where you can play either a female Ninja or a male Samurai. We’re not sure how this mixture of characters will play into the Assassin’s Creed lens, but we’re waiting to see gameplay. We also look at the leaked footage of Deadlock from Valve. It’s a hero shooter that mixes MOBA mechanics with a third person shooter game. It looks really good with a unique art style that has us intrigued.
