The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman

The Weekly Stuff #334 – EA Play 2020, Ian Holm RIP, and Last of Us 2 Impressions

Episode Summary

We cover EA's disastrously dull 2020 'Not E3' show, remember the great Ian Holm, and give spoiler-free impressions of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II.

Episode Notes

It’s a short but sweet episode this week as we cover a few pieces of news, including the passing of beloved actor Ian Holm, best known for his definitive portrayal of Bilbo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. We also break down another ‘Not-E3 2020 event’ as EA gave one of their worst, least substantive press conferences ever, and rant about American movie theatres wildly irresponsible move to reopen in the midst of a pandemic. Jonathan gives a quick update on his One Piece progress, and Sean talks about the horrors of watching Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children. And finally, we give some spoiler-free impressions of Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us Part II, one of the year’s most anticipated games, ahead of our full spoiler review next week. 

Enjoy, and come back Wednesday for a bonus episode celebrating the first anniversary of our sister series, Weekly Suit Gundam!
