Fresh off our playthrough of the dazzling Final Fantasy XV demo, we begin this week’s show by looking at the proud tradition of packing high-profile demos to help sell (and, more often than not, almost completely eclipse) medium-profile games. Then it’s on to some rapturous Bloodborne chatter, our thoughts on Hideo Kojima leaving Konami, and your best drunk-gaming experiences.
Question of the Week
If you bought a PS4 or Xbox One (or a new graphics card, sure), which game has justified the purchase the most?
*NOTE* We’ve been getting some AMAZING donations lately but hardly anyone is attaching a name and the intended recipient of said donations. Please try to make note of which podcast the donation is going to so maybe we can get some new equipment and thank the right people for all their support.
