This week on the show, it’s CONSOLE WARS 2! That’s right, it’s almost Xmas, so Luke, Meags, Archer and Tom sit down for a serious discussion around which console should be your console of choice this year! We break down the games, the features, the content and the future, and really have a think about which of the three – Xbox One, PS4 or Wii U, is really doing the right things, and which ones aren’t! Also, in the news of the week, a big gameplay trailer for the Final Fantasy VII remake was released… and Luke isn’t a fan! Ni No Kuni 2 was also announced and we discuss the idea of PS2 Classics being available for download for a pretty hefty price tag considering they are 15 years old. Archer does some crazy explosions and back-flips playing Just Cause 3, Meags gives her online competitive multiplayer skills a good crack with Rainbow Six: Siege and Luke gets completely overwhelmed by the gigantic and amazing Xenoblade Chronicles X! Just another jam-packed week as we get close to finishing up another full year of your favourite gaming show!
