It had been ages since we last had a proper catch-up with The B, so we invited him back on the show to talk about what he's been playing recently, get distracted by food, and talk about Nightdive Studio's Shadow Man Remaster. Along the way, we discuss the Sony "timebomb" built into all PS3, PS4, and PS5 consoles, Xbox GamePass, and how this year's E3 will be different

Towards the end of the second half of the episode (around the 33 minute mark), we discussed the games that Jay had been playing. He had been playing the Nightdive Studio remaster of Shadow Man; this is a very dark game, and the content that we discuss for this game is very dark in nature. We would recommend that you don’t let little ones listen to this part of the episode.
Please listen responsibly.
It had felt like ages since we last had The B on the show (but we’d last had him on at the start of 2021 - for episode 99) so we invited him back and had a bit of a catch-up. But that had to wait until after Jay had forgotten the feed like for SquidgeHello Squidgey! How are you Squidgey?
And of course, The B starts yammering on about how much he loves a certain Portuguese chicken restaurant (something something cheeky nindos). To be fair, we would not turn down a free Nindos (yes, the typos are intentional).
We wasted no time at all in getting to the heart of the matter, and that was:
The Recent Games segment will not be new to listeners, but in case you're new to the show here's how it goes: we go round the table and discuss one or more game that we've been playing recently, and whether we think it's worth the listeners checking it out. We continue to do this until we've run out of games to discuss.
The B's Recent Games
- Call of Duty: Warzone
The B said that he had started this one “more out of curiosity” than anything else (I wonder whether that was "curiosity about whether he had the hard-drive space" - Jay)
And from his description, this seemed like a fun game with a forgettable story (SPOILERS! - Squidge). But it’s not something that B would be happy calling “Square-Enix’s take Destiny 2” becauseI’d like to say "Square-Enix’s take on a Destiny game." Although they did, kind of, have that with The Avengers - once you get through the main story. Because Avengers has a very similar thing.
- The B
But how forgettable was the story?Barely a week from completely the story, and I couldn’t really remember most of it
- The B
That’s harsh! But possibly true.
