Player Attack TV: October 14, 2016, SE4 EP33

This week’s episode features three very different games that are all pretty great in their own way.

If you loved playing cards in the world of The Witcher 3, you were definitely not alone. So many people contacted CD Projekt RED about that one small part of the game that the Polish studio is now hard at work on Gwent as a standalone title, due out next year. Jonny Robot chats to Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz from the developer about just what’s in store.

Angelo has recently spent some quality time with Gears of War 4 – it’s 25 years since the Locust invasion, and Marcus Fenix has all-but hung up his boots. But peace never lasts on Sera, and Marcus’s son JD Fenix finds himself facing a horrific new enemy – the Swarm – in a tale of rescue and revenge, out now for Xbox One and Windows PC!

We know all this new game stuff gets a bit overwhelming, so let’s have a retro regression session with Mike and his Videogame Shoebox… This week, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, which first hit the original PlayStation back in 1997. The game’s non-linear level design has helped create an entirely new genre of RPGs – but how well does it hold up 20 years later?

…plus, of course, we have all the latest in gaming news – this is Player Attack!

Each week, we take the biggest and most interesting news to hit the pages of Player Attack and wrap it all up into a half-hour show. Player Attack is screened Friday nights on Australian subscription TV channel Aurora and in New Zealand on FaceTV. The following Monday, the video is released online as a handy-dandy Player Attack vidcast.

Each episode is available via YouTube and iTunes – and we hear rumours we may be dotted around the place in other online locations. Hit play, subscribe, and let Jessica and the team bring you up to date.
