OPM Podcast 2016 – Issue 121

OPM's Podcast Blog

Like Snake springing out of his cardboard box, the team behind OPM UK are sneaking up on you with a brand new podcast. In this return episode, we discuss Jen Simpkins’ huge feature on No Man’s Sky, Matthew Pellett’s journey to the depths of the ocean in Abzu and Ben Tyrer’s prehistoric adventures in Far Cry Primal.

There’s chatter about Street Fighter V, Bloodborne, Crypt of the Necrodancer and even why one team member can’t put down Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth.

Don’t worry, the wait until our next episode will be much shorter: we’ll be back on Friday 18 March with a mini-episode discussing the PlayStation VR event at GDC, and on 1 April we’ll be talking about the biggest PlayStation game of the year: Uncharted 4.

Maybe it’s the unnecessary introduction with Frodo or the whole debate around HFR, but whatever disappointments came with the first journey back to the Shire, Hobbit 2 wastes no time in being better. Much better. The entire barrel sequence fizzles with an energy that the first one lacked, as the camera whizzes between action and laughs. Okay, it’s overly long and lacks a definitive ending, but it finally feels like the return to Middle Earth that I had craved a year ago.
