On an impromptu Spectator Mode Podcast, Keith and Karl discuss the recent Helldivers 2 situation and what Sony walking back the PSN requirement could mean.

Welcome back to the Spectator Mode Podcast, and we're back covering the gaming industry, with two new faces. In this episode, we discuss several topics, including the forced Helldivers 2 PSN requirement (which was a thing when we recorded), the nonsense about the Stellar Blade male gaze, more gaming industry layoffs, numbered review scores, and more. #helldivers2 #stellarblade #norestforthewicked #gamingnews #gamingpodcast #thisweekingaming Timestamps:00:00 - Intro01:32 - Stellar Blade, Male ...
While Helldivers 2 always had a PSN requirement, it wasn't enforced due to technical issues during the launch. Now, months after the game was putting up amazing numbers, Sony is requiring PSN account linking and it's caused quite a bit of frustration among the Helldivers community. But, what exactly is going on here? Let's talk about this. #helldivers2 #playstationnetwork #arrowheadgamestudios Considering rating us on iTunes, that way we can continue to reach out to new listeners and make thi...

We're diving into two major TV shows, Fallout and X-Men '97, and we can't stop talking about either.

And if you happen to like the content, do us a favor and leave a comment, like the v...
This week on The Spectator Mode Podcast, Keith, Scott, and Matt discuss their top 5 favorite indie games shown during the Triple-i Initiative Showcase. Jeff Grubb reports that EA has killed off the Dead Space 2 remake, but EA says otherwise. Xbox has announced a new team devoted to game preservation.

Now that the Summer Game Fest, as well as the Xbox Showcase, is done, the crew reflects on their favorite reveals and goes hands-on with the Lies of P and Final Fantasy XVI demos.
