Colm’s never played a single second of Left 4 Dead. So, he can't properly compare the new game to the source material. However, he can say that he had a ball playing the Back 4 Blood beta with other members of the RPS treehouse. It's good, old-fashioned zombie killing funtimes!
While Turtle Rock's upcoming game dominates this week's show, Headlines and Hot Takes is full of chat on what could be next from 2K. Apparently there's an "exciting new franchise" coming, so we get chatting on the rumoured Marvel XCOM, and the Hangar 13 game that's apparently a little Cthulu, a little Saints Row. We also talk about different coloured Steam Decks for a minute.
As already mentioned, Show and Tell is full of chatter on Turtle Rock's new horde-slaying game. While Colm isn’t going to be breaking down the minute differences between the two games, he does say he had a lovely time playing Back 4 Blood with Team RPS. To be fair, he also had quite a nice time playing Death Trash on his lonesome. Meanwhile, Matthew's been cutting some grass in Lawn Mowing Simulator.
This week's Mystery Steam Reviews is all about video games with romance options. And we round out the show by opening The Weekspot mailbag to answer your Burning Questions on mobile games, skateboarding, and feeling horrible.
