Rank #1: Episode 109: Star Wars Battlefront 2 with Mr Sunday Movies

Podcast cover
Read more

This week the boys are joined by Mr Sunday Movies (aka James) to talk about Skyrim on Switch and the whole Star Wars Battlefront 2 thing! We review the game and talk extensively about the surrounding controversy and its impact on video games as an industry. It's a super fun ep!

We do spoil some of the very short single-player campaign, and spoilers begin at 30:00 when we start delving into the solo missions. It should be said that these spoilers aren't very detrimental to the experience of the game, but if you want to stay spoiler-free it might be best to come back to this episode after you've played the game.

It's a seemingly random time that appears absolutely meaningless and arbitrary, so that must mean it's Nintendo Direct time! This week the boys have a dig through the latest offering of news and announcements from The Mario Mansion and there's actually some pretty cool shit in there. Also a cheeky tiny bit of Super One More Jump and I think we talked about some other stuff too but to be perfectly honestly I'm really sick and can't remember so just listen to the episode please and thank you.
