  • Enjoy the show!

  • I intend to Ryan, I intend to.

  • Just downloaded on iTunes. Love the show, guys!! You guys should make this available through the Playstation Store. I could download it straight through my system and listen while playing. That’s what I do anyway but it would be nice if I could do it all with my Dualshock 4.

  • I feel asleep after for seconds in.

  • Oh boy, listening now!

    Also, one day someones gonna get first comment instead of you Ryan! xD

  • Ryan! Are you going to do one more Beyond before Greg and Colin leave? It would be good to hear you three together on Beyond one last time.

  • It would be interesting to see if there might ever be a video game adaptation of Risk: Legacy someday – the concept of a board modified by player actions over time may be a relatively unique concept for tabletop campaigns, but might be approachable in a very different manner electronically.

    Also, Saskatoon is a city in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

  • Another great episode :D

  • Hey guys…CD Projekt Red is indeed Polish, and Geralt (in the English voice-over) is pronounced GAIR-alt. I have high hopes for the Witcher 3!

  • Heard you guys ask for Dying Light impressions so I’ll leave them right here:

    (Part 1)
    As a fan of Dead Island, I can say that this game feels like more of the same (in a good way). The open world, melee-focused combat, weapon crafting, skill trees, side missions, and of course zombie killing all make a return and feel more polished in my opinion.

    The new parkour element feels very nice (not quite Mirror’s Edge, but very close) and (believe it or not) doesn’t make the game much easier. Also (new?) in the game is a cool day-night cycle (I don’t remember if Dead Island had one), that actually changes up the gameplay some by introducing things like zombie “pursuits”, safe areas, missions only available at night, etc.

  • (Part 2)
    As for the story, all I’ll say is I’m actually enjoying it a lot more than I thought I would, and I’m interested to see how it plays itself out.

    And while there is online co-op multiplayer, I haven’t tried it yet, so I have nothing to say.

    All in all I’d say if you enjoyed Dead Island or maybe Riptide, (I don’t know I haven’t played it), you would more than likely wanna give this one a go. I’d probably say fans of other recent open world action games (Farcry 3 and 4 for example), probably may enjoy this as well.

  • You guys really need to do a video blogcast, I need constant video and audio stimulation. I usually only listen to the new releases and thats it, but you guys were really funny this episode and had me laughing before the new releases were over, so I listened to the entire show. I really enjoyed it, and love the teases for the drop Sunday and Sid’s tease for next weeks blogcast too, hah. You guys really need to watch cooler shows though! I strongly suggest Peaky Blinders.

  • Ryan, I haven’t had time to listen yet but I will as always. One question. Why has there been no official screenshots or video footage released anywhere on the web of the PS4 version of the game? All I’ve ever seen are Xbox One & PC as they always have the A, B, X, & Y button prompts. If you search online there’s nothing visually on the PS4 version specifically.

  • Game of Thrones: The Lost Lords? Is that the secret news in the drop? It’s been known to come out next week for a while now.

  • Another great show.

    As someone who pays for Spotify I’m totally fired up to be able to use it while playing PS4. Will it ever come to vita?

    Really excited for Risk, and totally agree with the above commenter that we NEED risk, legacy. That would be boss.

  • As a prairie man listening from my farm near Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. What a shocker to hear that Apotheon was made here (who knew anyone played/much less created video games in the prairies). I thought it was funny to hear Saskatoon be just a whimsical name for a town (“maybe in Ontario…lol). As it’s the major city of 230 k people to us. Anyways, even more excited to try out the upcoming free game of February!

  • NICK! THANK YOU for telling me about EDF 4.1! I can’t believe this is real! I’ve always been a fan since the PS2 games but I had no idea this was coming til now, there’s no mention of it on the 2025 facebook page either so I was completely oblivious! It looks like the best of 2025 and RAD and in 60fps, if so this is most definitely going to be the best game on PS4 for years.. I still can’t believe it..
