This week on the show, Tom, Elliot, Ronnie and newcomer Rachel talk about all things Early Access! It’s a concept that has been around for a while when you factor in things like open betas, alphas and even other forms of play-testing games before release, so the gang discuss the reasons why it exists, talk about when it works and also when it doesn’t work very well at all! Also some big reviews; Luke goes on an emotional journey with The Last Guardian, Ronnie puts his snowboarding to the test in open-world extreme sports title Steep while Tom checks in with the port of Super Mario Maker for the Nintendo 3DS! It’s all here in another episode of your favourite video game show! earlyaccessearlyaccessreviews
