In episode 184 of The Gaming Outsider podcast, the gang discusses a slew of gaming news, titles we've been playing this week and our weekly community topic.
News is slow this week but we had fun discussing a few items that dropped recently. Sea of Thieves developer Rare promises no loot boxes for the upcoming pirate title, but will include microtransactions. Should we praise Rare for this? Fortnite drops a new update adding a lot of new goodies to the game, so Robby gives us the details on that. Also, the System Shock remake Kickstarter campaign goes on hiatus. Are we tired of Kickstarter projects disappointing us?
Games we discuss this week are as follows:
Our community topic reaches out to everyone in our Facebook group asking a simple question: have you ever regretted buying a specific console in your life? If so, which one and why? Which bad console still won Josh's heart in the end? What's Scott's biggest gaming regret? Which surprising retro console makes Zach the most nostalgic to the point where the discussion literally had him scouring eBay? Our hosts reveal their answers and also read several responses from our community.
