185: Escape from Tarkov, Semblance and Gamescom 2018

Episode Summary

In this episode, we talk about Escape from Tarkov and the platformer Semblance. It's also Gamescom week so we dive deep into all the trailer reveals, gameplay reveals and more.

Episode Notes

In this episode, we dive into two lesser known games. Escape from Tarkov is a first person shooter from Battlestate Games currently in Beta. It's a story driven MMO with FPS and RPG elements according to the developers. We also play the game from the South African team nyamkop called "Semblance." This is a literal plat-form-er where you play a blob that can form the platforms around you in order to reach new heights.

In our news, we talk Overwatch's new map, Assassin's Creed skipping 2019, a Dark Souls Trilogy and a rumor that someone pooped in line at Gamescom.

Finally, our discussion is all about Gamescom because there was too much to fit into the news segment. We got some awesome gameplay trailers from World War 3, Devil May Cry 5, The Settlers, The Division, Battlefield 5, Stormdivers and much much more. In addition, Austin and Brett share their top 3 favorite announcements from the showcase.
