The Weekly Stuff #168 – Final Fantasy XV Spoiler-Free Impressions, Plus Game Awards and PSX

Episode Summary

We break down all the news from the Game Awards and the PlayStation Experience before diving in with our first spoiler-free impressions of Final Fantasy XV.

Episode Notes

On this week’s show, we dive into a slew of trailers and announcements from two major gaming events of the past week – the Game Awards and the PlayStation Experience – breaking down everything from The Last of Us Part II announcement to the joyous insanity of Hideo Kojima’s latest Death Stranding tease. And after the news, we give our spoiler-free first impressions of one of the year’s biggest releases, Final Fantasy XV. It’s been a long road to finally be playing this game – it was announced, as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, when Sean and I were in middle-school – and now that it’s here, it’s safe to say this is one of the most singular and unique games we have ever played. This chat is spoiler-free, and we’ll be back next week to go more in-depth with the story, so feel free to listen if you haven’t yet picked up the game.

Enjoy!
