Chris, Tom S and Marsh immolate dogs in the fields and fields and fields of Final Fantasy 16, plunder the pseudo-Yarnhams and battle-Narnias of Remnant 2, and step into the frame of Viewfinder, but remain puzzlingly unpuzzled.

  • Final Fantasy 16’s coverage so far has hidden its kaijus beneath a very large bushel, and a very large Clive.
  • Souls-inspired shooter sequel Remnant 2 has striking Bloodbornisms and Anar Londo moments aplenty in its grab-bag of genres. Plus: a dog.
  • Firstperson puzzler Viewfinder’s mutable (and mute-able) world is a thrilling central conceit, but leaves its potential unjuiced.
  • Also referenced: Portal, Portal 2, Manifold Garden and Diablo IV.
