Ah it felt like old times recording Episode 211. For close to two hours, Sean aka Lucky Phantasm made an appearance on the Gamers In Beta podcast to hang out and chat with his podcast cohorts. Good times were had, even if we did bust his balls here and there.

Topics this week include Horizon Zero Dawn DLC, No Man’s Sky update, Xbox One dashboard updates, and Shadow of War’s pay to win strategy.

Games mentioned this week are: Dark and Light, Subnautica, Dishonored 2, PUBG, Splatoon 2, Hellblade, LawBreakers, Retro City Rampage DX, and MLB the Show ’17.

Thanks to all who participate in our Discord chat and leave us Voice Mails.
