We’ll also talk about games that didn’t get the recognition they deserved, but first Dan gets his revenge when he puts Jack through a Trial by fire.

    In which our heroes discuss the Mafia III embargo, Microsoft’s APPX encryption issues, Sean Murray, Bethesda still talking about PS4 mods, Quantum Break’s Direct X 12 issues, Pandemic’s Lost projects, the return of Bulletstorm, and Digital Homicide’s legal snafu. Finally, we see why we should give a damn about Dan’s opinion when he goes through a Trial by Fire.

    In which our heroes discuss the reveal of the PS4 Pro and Microsoft’s overall goals with Project Scorpio, including an indepth look at the troubled messaging of the Xbox One launch and how it informs Microsoft’s current strategy. We also discuss No Man’s Sky PR and new content, and EA gobbling up Bioware.
