146: Easy Mode

At the time of recording James had a flight in less than ten hours and still hadn't started packing, so we squeezed in what we could into two hours. And after three podcasts and a couple of streams the previous week, What You Been Playing is a bit thin on the ground, which, as you'll hear in feedback, is probably a good thing for Mat. Watch TCGS Live at Rezzed this coming Saturday 6th April at 4pm in the Fringe Theatre. Tickets and more information at egx.net/rezzed Games Discussed: Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.

PlayStation State of Play - TCGS Talks Over

Sean, Mat and James talked over PlayStation's first 'State of Play' presentation live on Twitch, and here it is in audio form.  We'd obviously recommend watching the video of our live reactions on our Twitch or YouTube channels, but if you're not able to do that, hopefully this audio version will suffice. Note: Because we used the audio from the stream for this show, the audio quality won't be at quite the same high standard as the weekly pod. We're working on making this much better for the next one.

Ooh, looks like the listeners are scared. All because we’re not afraid to speak our minds, put our heads above the parapet and tell it LIKE IT IS. And do you know what, we don’t care.
