Emmanuel and Liz join us to discuss the news of Xbox acquiring Activision Blizzard, as well as the massive new games coming out this month. The big one on all of our minds, well maybe not Pagans, is Elden Ring. Emanuel shares his experience with the network tests of the game, While Liz talks about her ongoing article series and her excitement as a George R.R. Martin fan. Liz has never played a FromSoftware game and has little idea of what she is getting herself into. We round out the discussion with our expectations for the Uncharted movie.

Dan’s take :

I am beyond excited for Elden Ring and have been going hard on every other Souls game I can play in my free time! Sifu is looking very cool as well and I am excited to play that. Horizon Forbidden West is jaw drop gorgeous to look at. Oh man, I am just listing here. How in the heck am I going to play all these games. One day at a time I guess. Elden Ring is the priority and my partner is very interested, so we will attempt to play together. Right up till we get invaded and murdered, if the game has that, then rage quit. I was very pleased to get the two very different takes of Elden Ring from Emanuel who, like me is well versed in the Souls genre. Then there is Liz who has no clue what she is getting into. Here’s hoping she loves it!

Pagan’s take : 

February seems like such a big month for gaming! I know there are so many folks out there excited for Dying Light 2 and Elden Ring especially! However, I don’t really have that much experience in those games, so I’m not sure how excited I could be compared to others who are well versed in the world’s designs and game mechanics, but I sure am looking forward to it! Horizon Forbidden West especially. I don’t think I really gave that game a lot of love on my first playthrough but it’s definitely been one of those games I just couldn’t stop thinking about! So I’m very much looking forward to HFW and all of the new characters and designs for sure! 

It was super interesting to hear from Emmanuel and Lizabeth Phoenix on this episode as they are both such big George R R Martin fans and it was so lovely that they could share their excitement with us this episode!
