In this episode, we dive into the 4 player co-op game Catastronauts, Anthem's demo and Kingdom Hearts 3. We also discuss social experiences in video games.
We hosted our first event of 2019 and featured the 4 player couch co-op game called Catastronauts. Think of it as Overcooked meets FTL...all in space. We also play a good amount of the Anthem demo to get a feel for what kind of game that will become and we play the initial parts of Kingdom Hearts 3 from a newcomers perspective.
In our news, Sony is focusing first party efforts on the PS5, the devs at Overkill's The Walking Dead knew it was doomed and Overwatch's new map has a piano. We also have a discussion on Epic Games convincing Metro Exodus to pull from the Steam store and become exclusive to the Epic Games store for a year. Some people aren't happy about this switch.
Finally, Fortnite hosted their first ever live concert featuring Marshmello. It was about 10-15 minutes long and was full of lights and effects to keep people interested and engaged. Will we see more things like this in the future?
