Episode Notes

Marvel's Spider-Man is finally here on the PS4. The wait is over and the hype is beyond real. We've played it and are happy to say the game delivers. Insomniac Games outdid themselves with this title and we can't wait to play more. Brett may even platinum it! The Battlefield 5 open beta is also here and Brett and Austin jump in to share their opinions. It's better than most people are saying and we share some of the highlights from Rotterdam and Narvik.

In the news, we have a ton of new details thanks to Game Informer on Fallout 76. We talk about trolling and censorship online and discuss the new Anthem trailer around "Our World, My Story." Finally, they have a greaseproof Xbox One controller that no one really wanted!

Our discussion is all about the future of Battle Royale and where it's headed. We talk about the current state of the genre and what things will be like as the Triple A developers get into the game with Firestorm and Blackout from Dice and Treyarch.
