Mike gives a super in depth take of what he has noticed from the game, some of the weaknesses and how they are clearly overshadowed by the games strengths. We then touch on No Mans Sky where Shiva and Mike discuss their conflicting opinions of the release of NEXT, the free update with No Mans Sky two years after the launch of the game that left fans disappointed. Finally we close up talking about some new titles coming to consoles, lots of Metroidvanias around the corner, Shiva’s favorite!
On Episode 18 Shiva chats about his thoughts on the return of No Mans Sky, the failure of Culling 2 and what AAA can probably learn or may already be learning based on how those developers handle their failures.

Today we cover the last day of SGDQ. We talk about Mario 64, the expectations for today and the exceptionally awesome Final Fantasy 6 speed run that is 7 hours long!
Shiva and Mike are back talking about what may have been the highlight of SGDQ so far. The Mario 3 run went every way but right and ended up being the most entertaining and fun run we have seen so far at the event. We also talk about some of the cool stuff showing today, some highlights of what we caught so far including some of the beat em ups like Double Dragon, Streets of Rage and Golden Axe. SGDQ continues!
