State of Play & Company of Heroes 3

The Two Player Bros take a look at the latest video game news!

First up Mike and Dave talk about the new PS5 trend...Director's Cuts! Both Ghosts of Tsushima and Death Stranding are getting "director's cuts," but it all seems more like just a new name for "Gold Edition." And in the case of Tsushima it might not be worth it to pay for the upgrade.

Then the Bros talk Sony's July "State of Play." A rather short one, considering they skipped out on E3 again this year and didn't hold their own event, but we got to see some games. Moss 2 stole Mike's heart with the adorable knight mouse on another adventure. Both Mike and Dave see potential in the possible Metroid-Vania style of the "rabbit with a huge robot fist on his back" game, aptly titled F.I.S.T. Mike was surprised by his interest in the upcoming Hunter's Arena: Legends game with its PvPvE gameplay and anime style. We saw a large amount of combat gameplay from Sifu where are martial arts master ages as he is defeated. Mike and Dave also talk about their interest in Lost Judgement, a game that looks to be in the same vain as Yakuza: Like a Dragon, but with a slight emphasis on being more serious. And finally more Deathloop, which at this point it's just...come on now. The more you show the less we want the game.

Mike then talks about his excitement for the surprise announcement of Company of Heroes 3. Although he has never played the original two games, what he saw left him very impressed. You can even download a large chunk of the game for the developers pre-alpha release.

And finally the Bros talk about the most important news of all; Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. A Smash Bros.-like game where you can play as characters from shows from all generations of the kids network. Reptar v Powdered Toast Man? You betcha!!!

Enjoy the episode and keep on Gaming!!!
