The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman

The Weekly Stuff #325 – Next-Gen Console Production, Yakuza, Vanquish, and a game about Quibi

Episode Summary

We talk about all the games we're playing right now, from the Yakuza series to Platinum Games' Vanquish, before playing a very silly game about the very stupid streaming service Quibi.

Episode Notes

It was a light week in video game news, though a report about improved working conditions at Rockstar Games and some insight into Sony’s production strategy for the PS5 gives us a chance to talk about how games are made and what the future is looking like with next-gen consoles. We also talk about the games we’ve been playing during the shut-in, with Sean returning to Kamurocho for Yakuza 5 and Jonathan discovering the awfulness that is Resident Evil 5 and the awesomeness that is Platinum Games’ recently re-released Vanquish. And finally, just for laughs, we make fun of the very stupid, very not-successful streaming service Quibi with a game pitting the real, incredibly silly shows on the service versus fake, equally silly shows that aren’t.
