Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | Tune In | RSS

SPOILER ALERT!

This is a special episode of Will and Drew’s Gaming Retrospective – a full roundtable discussion of the WDGR Game Club about the game Bioshock Infinite!

This episode was recorded on May 13th, 2021, and features six members of the WDGR Community as we discuss the ins and outs of Bioshock Infinite – the plot, the controversy, the game play, the music, and the graphics. Is this game still enjoyable in 2021? Or did the themes established in 2013 hit differently in a vastly changed political landscape?

Everyone, rejoice! Will has finally been able to acquire a PS5! After spending the weekend enjoying it, he’s got a ton to say, including his first impressions, and some surprising thoughts about the pack-in game, Astro’s Playground. 

Will and Drew also dive deep into the listener mailbag, and answer some amazing questions submitted through Discord.

But not all is well in the WDGR world, as constant technical issues plague their weekly livestream. Drew is a little distracted throughout, and as such some of the audio quality in the first half of the show suffers slightly.

Apple Podcasts | Google Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | Tune In | RSS

Sony has reversed their decision to close the PS3 and Vita digital stores this summer – a decision that many gamers are happy to hear. Sony has listened to the voices of their customers, and while they’re still closing the PSP store, this is a massive change from what we’ve seen from them in the past. Will and Drew break down the change – is this for the best?

Plus, the director of Days Gone was pretty outspoken about games being free or on sale – and how they effect sequels in the industry. Is he right?

All this, plus much more, including the announcement of our Patreon, launching in May!
