Episode Notes

This week brought the biggest entry yet in “Not E3 2020,” a series of events that would have taken place at E3 2020, if E3 2020 were thing. This time, it was the formal ‘reveal’ event for Sony’s PlayStation 5, with a big swath of game announcements – including a new Spider-Man, Hitman 3, the long-awaited Demon’s Souls remake, and Horizon: Forbidden West – and the unveiling of the console’s physical design. It was an exciting if uneven show, and that wasn’t even the only big gaming news this week, as Bungie also outlined plans for Destiny 2 all the way through 2022. We also talk about playing Final Fantasy VII – Sean playing through the original 1997 classic, Jonathan through this year’s Remake – Sean gives final thoughts on Hitman 5, and Jonathan talks about the subtle but significant visual majesty of 4K Ultra HD Blu-rays, which he finally got to try out for the first time this week.
