Podcast #321 - PS5, Doom, Animal Crossing, Evangelion, and more!
This week's show is a veritable shut-in smorgasbord!
If you’re looking for something to listen to while practicing safe social distancing, have we got a show for you this week! The last seven days gave us our first in-depth look at Sony’s PlayStation 5, Sean and I finally got to play Doom Eternal and Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and to top it all off we return to Neon Genesis Evangelion to talk about The End of Evangelion movie.
For the games, we just give some quick spoiler-free first impressions – the full review of Doom Eternal will be on next week’s show – while I talk about finishing Ori and the Will of the Wisps on Xbox One and Sean gives final thoughts on Yakuza 4 for the PS4. Then we dive deep with the PlayStation 5 news, and the paradox of how badly Sony has botched this entire messaging roll-out compared with how exciting the console is shaping up to be. Both consoles, as we also got some more news on Xbox Series X, and each system seems to have a lot going for it.
And finally, in a crossover with our sister show Weekly Suit Gundam,we do Part 2 of our big Evangelion discussion with a long talk about the End of Evangelion film that replaces the controversial ending of the TV show with a lot of big swings and a questionable number of hits.
