The editors of gamesradar.com analyze the latest video games every week, pulling apart trends in the industry and discovering the best little adventures you might have missed. They also record all that, which some might say is crucial for this podcast format.
The Big Topic: Persona 5’s long development yielded proper results.
Further discussion: Living through your Switch bricking and other dead console experiences.
Persona 5. It is here. A full four years after its original proposed release date, two months after the GamesRadar crew finally started playing it, and just in time for the game’s release comes a podcast where we talk about the brilliant Atlus RPG’s story, style, and perfectly executed battle system. Fear not: WE ARE SPOILER FREE!
One spoiler, though: Anthony’s Nintendo Switch bricked for no reason. We talk through what happens when a Nintendo system goes down and look back on dealing with other catastrophic console failures.

The Big Topic: NX and the future of Nintendo games
Further Discussion: Games you hate and can’t stop playing
What we’re into: Revisiting Metal Gear Solid 5 and Star Trek Beyond
The Nintendo NX has been revealed… maybe. The GamesRadar+ crew discusses the recently leaked details of Nintendo's upcoming console, its allegedly strange console-slash-portable hybrid design, and its potential impact on the gaming landscape. We also dig into the games we can't stop playing despite hating them with every fiber of our being (CURSE YOU, TOO HUMAN), David's disturbing obsession with Metal Gear Solid 5, and Star Trek Beyond's place in the series' long and storied history.
Hosts: Anthony John Agnello, Susan Arendt, David Roberts

Nick Savoy, inventor of Love Systems, is something of a real-life Frank Mackey (Tom Cruise in Magnolia, if you don’t get the reference.) This week, all Nick’s energy is focused on E3. He’ll be the guy going home with the hotties the rest of us barely have the courage to ogle from afar. Want to know how he does it? Nick was kind enough to share a few tips with us.
