184: Overcooked 2, Pocket City and The Cost of Being a Streamer

Episode Summary

In this episode we review Overcooked 2, Pocket City and Manual Samuel. We also talk about the cost (not monetary) of getting into video game streaming when the market is getting so flooded.

Episode Notes

We provide our first impressions of Overcooked 2, the sequel to the awesome couch co-op from Ghost Town Games. They've added more levels, more complexity, better graphics and more zaniness to this world. It's wonderful. We also review a game that just released on the Switch called Manual Samuel from Perfectly Paranormal. It's crazy with a friend trying to control this guy. Finally we jump into Pocket City on iOS and Android and experience a gem of a game for the mobile platform. It has no microtransactions, is addicting as hell and full of progression. We highly recommend it if you're into city sims.

In our news, we dive deep into many things such as the continuing controversy surrounding the IGN reviewer who plagiarized content, we talk about EA losing a key member and their Battlefield V trailer, Life is Strange 2 has a new trailer and Amazon Prime cutting some big features for gamers.

Finally, our discussion is on the cost of being a streamer. Earlier this year we talked about how game designers are incorporating features to their game built with streaming in mind but this time we're coming from the streamer's perspective. We talk about the controversy with Ninja and his recent statement about not playing with women, we discuss the launch of Steam.tv and what that means for the industry plus what new tools could advance the industry forward.
