This week on the show, we talk about video games that force you to grind! Whether it be trying to level up a character to be able to tackle a tough boss or to play for hundreds of hours in an effort to find that elusive piece of gear that you need to complete your armour set, grinding is just part of gaming life for many gamers. Join Luke, Tom, Jakob and Elliot as they discuss the positives and the negatives of grinding, what works and what doesn’t, and some of the games that pull this off successfully. Also on the show, Luke has been racing around Australia to complete his review of Forza Horizon 3! He also spends a bit of time reflecting on the old school, bringing us his verdict on Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past while Jakob has been getting dark to deliver the final word on PYSCHO-PASS: Mandatory Happiness. Don’t miss any of the fun! the-gaming-grindreviewsgrind
