After a break over the holiday period, most of the gang is all back together to get into the swing of things. Eric Switzer, Jade King, Issy van der Velde, and George Foster start the podcast off by discussing some of the biggest news stories of the week. One such story is the drama surrounding Dying Light 2's length, which was advertised on Twitter as being 500 hours long. That goes down about as well as you can imagine.
Speaking of drama, the team also talks about Days Gone 2 and some recently revealed details about what the sequel would have included. If swimming is the highlight of your pitch, that says something. Some other news bits include reactions to the Kirby and the Forgotten Land trailer, and some recent Star Wars leaks that might indicate that 2022 is a big year for the series.
After that, the gang talks about some of the games they've removed from their backlog over the holiday. Jade has finally played and completed Guardians of the Galaxy, Eric has been working through Monster Hunter Rise on PC, Issy continues to be a Forza Horizon 5 pro, and George has finally given The Forgotten City the time it deserves.
