In our second episode of the new year, we’ve got a lot to cover. We start off chatting a bit about Zero Time Dilemma and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Is Zero Time Dilemma as confusing as it sounds? Further, has Rise of the Tomb Raider improved on the flaws of the first game?
Next up is Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, last month’s free PS Plus game. From the creators of Dear Esther, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture is certainly an experience, but would it have killed them to toss in a run button (as opposed to a meander button)?
Finally we cover the big news of the day, as we take a gander at the Nintendo Switch event. Why on earth did they open up the conference with 15 minutes of unenthusiastic nattering? Who was the mad man behind the bizarre game that no one asked for: 1-2 Switch? Though Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild eventually show up to try and right the ship, after an overstretched conference filled with innumerable talking heads, often saying next to nothing, the Nintendo Switch conference came out almost beyond redemption. Tune in for our thoughts on these points and more.

Milocrorze is the brainchild of Yoshimasa Ishibashi, best known for The Fuccon Family TV sketch show, which featured an all-mannequin cast.
Absolver is a heavy hitter and as such, a lot of its punches are wild swings that miss their target. The ones that do connect, however, leave a lasting impression. A fantastic idea executed competently but, unfortunately, not much more than that.
'Batman and Harley Quinn' doesn't hold a candle to the 90s show it's inspired by, but fans could do worse.
Hostiles is an admirably executed work about accessing the damage done to the collective psyche of western America in the late 19th century.
I wasn't simply drawn back by the fanboy nostalgia for one of the titles that helped shape my gaming tastes to this day. No, the decision was primarily taken because remembering what games like this meant to me back during my illness made me consider what it was that I found so appealing about them, and ESO in particular.
