The Weekly Stuff #341 – Xbox Games Showcase, Halo Infinite, and Ghost of Tsushima Review

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. 

Our latest and possibly final entry in “Not-E3 2020” came this week with Microsoft’s Xbox Games Showcase, where they unveiled Halo: Infinite and detailed many other games coming to the Series X and Game Pass. It was certainly a compelling pitch for the latter, but did it do anything to pitch us on the fancy new console itself? We go in depth recapping the entire show, before settling in for a longer review discussion of Ghost of Tsushima, the excellent PS4 swan song that we can’t stop playing. Neither of us have finished it yet, so no major spoilers here, but we go deeper with the gameplay systems, characters, and presentation that make this such a unique and memorable open-world game.
