The Weekly Stuff Podcast #454 – Video Game Reviews Galore!
God of War Ragnarok, Sonic Frontiers, and Pokémon Scarlet & Violet!
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.
It’s our final podcast of 2022 before we take a little hiatus to work on other projects, and it’s a supersized episode featuring three video game reviews for the price of one! First up is Sonic Frontiers, Sega’s new 3D Sonic game combining open-world exploration, collect-a-thon objectives, and linear platform levels, a weird but compelling package that may well be the best 3D game the blue hedgehog has ever enjoyed. Next is Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, the technically troubled but creatively superb 9th generation of Pokémon adventures, which Jonathan can’t stop playing despite the presentational flaws. And finally, we go deep with God of War Ragnarok, in full spoiler detail, to break down one of the greatest video game sequels ever made and the amazingly moving story it tells.
Enjoy, and we will see you all in January for a new year of The Weekly Stuff, and in February for Season 2 of Japanimation Station – Ufotable/Moon Works!
