The Weekly Stuff Podcast #321 – PS5 Specs, Doom & Animal Crossing Impressions, and End of Evangelion Discussion
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.
It’s a very busy show this week, as we got our first in-depth look at Sony’s PlayStation 5, finally got to play Doom Eternal and Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and return to Neon Genesis Evangelion to talk about The End of Evangelion. 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 Jonathan also talks about finishing Ori and the Will of the Wisps and Sean gives final thoughts on Yakuza 4. 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.
