The Inner Gamer,

401: The First Descendant, FragPunk and Dragon Age Inquisition

July 08, 2024

We have some fantastic conversations this week. First, we play Nexon’s new looter shooter called The First Descendant. Brett played it in beta back in October of 2022 and now it’s out in full release. It’s part Warframe and part Destiny. Will it be good enough to take some player’s away from the other games? Brett also gets into the closed beta for FragPunk. It’s a Valorant-like game with a mix of Counter-Strike and Overwatch making a fun, gorgeously designed hero shooter with fast combat and a card system that really changes the game.

We go back 10 years to Dragon Age: Inquisition. In preparation for Dragon Age: Veilguard, we wanted to see how this game held up and why or why not we think this new direction is the right one for Veilguard. Brett also beat both Baldur’s Gate 3 and Cyberpunk 2077 and these games have truly redefined RPG’s for him. What does this mean for the future of RPG’s? Will they ever be able to live up to these games?

Lastly, Helldivers 2 has lost 90% of its active players. Can they come back? What do they need to regain people’s interest? We still love it but will it stay that way after a year?
