This week on the show, Luke, Archer, Fin and Viv are talking about gaming worlds and what makes them special. When playing a video game, there are many different factors that can make it successful, but one thing that stands out the most for us is the universe that is created; not just the literal locations, but the lore, the history and the incredible amount of detail that can go into a gaming world to truly make them memorable. We talk about these gaming worlds such as Mass Effect, Fallout, Silent Hill and more, along with the news of the week from QuakeCon featuring Quake Champions & Prey, plus more rumors about the NX, right here on your favourite gaming show!
