Tom S, Graham and Marsh congeal into a mass of gnashing mouths to chew over indie creature feature Carrion, disrespect the lore in Star Wars: Battlefront II and smash many glass men in the expandalone Superhot: Mind Control Delete.

  • We talk about the Xbox Showcase. You can watch the full stream here, and, because I am very lazy, here is Rock Paper Shotgun’s nicely curated list of all the games revealed therein, some of which we talk about.
  • The recording mangled the bit where I say the nickname of Halo Infinite’s art director: it’s Sparth. He’s terribly good.
  • Here’s Jason Schreier’s scoop on the nixed King Arthur game that was helmed by Mike Laidlaw.
  • Become the meatball marinara in metroidvania creature feature Carrion.
  • Take out your millennial insecticidal angst in the fan service nonsense kaleidoscope which is Star Wars: Battlefront II.
  • Duke around the dogman in Superhot: Mind Control Delete.
  • “I crank to the max.”
  • Alex’s article on Brutal Doom’s copious splatter.
