Episode Summary

Episode Notes

InnerSpace came out last week and we got a chance to play and share our impressions. InnerSpace is a new exploratory adventure game from PolyKnight Games. Think of it as a mix between Journey and Abzu with a touch of progression. Austin jumps back into Divinity: Original Sin 2 after our awesome interview from PAX South with the team at Larian Studios.

In the news this week, Nintendo announces their new "toy-con" kits called Nintendo Labo. These are cardboard cutouts that allow you to make your Switch into a bunch of interactive toys such as a fishing rod, piano, RC car and even a robot! Fortnite is seeing huge success after the release of their Battle Royale mode, Overwatch League's Dallas team runs into some trouble with a player and Dr. Disrespect is back after a 2 week hiatus?

Finally, our discussion this week is over cooperative games of 2018. This year we're seeing a big shift in developers diversifying the co-op experience and we explore how they're doing that. To our surprise, Microsoft is a huge part of that conversation. Don't forget to check our video segment on this talk Thursday at youtube.com/theinnergamer.
