Episode 154,   Jan 23, 2023, 09:05 PM

2023's first major release has arrived, and it's not looking great.

From a worrying demo, to Square Enix's decision not to send review copies to certain outlets, was the title already doomed for failure?

That's not all though! This week we discussed the debut episode of HBO's The Last Of Us, lamented another round of lay-offs that hit some beloved studios, and paid our final respects to Marvel's Avengers, following the announcement of its closure. Enjoy!
