The Weekly Stuff Podcast #275 – Anthem Demo, Dragon Ball FighterZ DLC, News and more!

It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in iTunes by following this link

This week, we got our first hands-on look at Bioware’s Anthem, and the results were…not pretty. We break down all the ways this uninspired Destiny clone has us worried after a few hours with the public demo, while also talking about Destiny itself and the Forsaken expansion we’ve both recently caught up with. We gush over the new combatants introduced to Dragon Ball FighterZ, Jiren and Videl, while expressing both excitement and horror about Piranha Plant’s debut in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. A big chunk of news, including the latest moves out of DC’s film universe and some striking Nintendo sales data, rounds out the episode.
