Forced interlude

No podcast this week thanks to the relentlessness of real life and the unfair requirement to work for a living. We will be back next week with Blank Panther spoilers, an argument over the quality of Assassin's Creed Origins and perhaps the sad tale of how I have finally discarded an entire genre from my 'games to be played' list.


There is a non-zero chance that The Evil Within 2 is a bad game. Not everything needs an open world, least of all game whose combat is not good enough to give the player something to do in said open world besides scrounge for crafting components. That's not scary, that's annoying. If The Evil Within was an throwback to Resident Evil then Evil Within 2 is the same, but for the first Silent Hill.

Only without the fog, so you can see too much of the enemies, and combat that is required but just as bad. Hours one and two were not impressive. I will keep playing, but not forever.
