The Weekly Stuff Podcast #381 – Nintendo at E3 2021 and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart 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 Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.
We’ve got two big topics this week, starting with a wrap-up of E3 2021, which we mostly covered in last week’s show, but wrapped up on Tuesday with Nintendo, by far the best showcase of the event. With big surprises like Metroid Dread, welcome new entries in the WarioWare and Mario Party series, our best look yet at Shin Megami Tensei V, and our first gameplay footage from the Breath of the Wild sequel, it was a great show that put everyone else at E3 to shame. After that, we dive deep with Insomniac’s incredible Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, an outstanding PS5 exclusive that offers great storytelling, nigh-perfect gameplay, and some of the most amazing technical accomplishments we’ve ever seen in a game. It gets our highest recommendation, and it’s a ton of fun to talk about.
Enjoy, and come back on Thursday for a second podcast this week, with our Weekly Suit Gundam 2-Year Anniversary Celebration!
