“Enjoy the format of the show with housekeeping first, followed by a main topic and other bits of news. The host try their best to be neutral while accepting their bias to PlayStation; because, after all, it is a PlayStation podcast. However, they don’t always do their research on things and shoot from the hip. For one, they discuss things like PS Now, without seeing how it works currently. I respect an opinion, but I respect it more if it comes after actually trying something out in its current form.
They also make comments about concept in games s if knowing how easy or hard developing is (Blessing does this more than Miller). For instance, they talked redentor about R&C: Rift apart. In there Blessing talked about how rifts weren’t as impressive because games like TitanFall 2 have done them in similar fashion. My opinion is that while right, he missed the mark with what the game did differently. Population way more things and different geometries faster than could have been done in TitanFall, Portal 1 and 2, Soul River (back on the Ps1 data) and other games. Made his argument felt a bit misguided. That’s just the recent example. It happens rarely with the host but it is there
Also, they rely way to much on IGN and they treat people that break news (industry insiders) like rockstars when the real rockstars are developers behind the games that these insiders leak. It irks me to listen to how glorified these insiders are ,when all they do is leak news or make educated guesses.
Srill enjoyable enough to listen. Complement it with Sacred Symbols.”
