Podcast Beyond Episode 465: Red Dead's Scenic Grandeur, Titanfall 2's Platforming, and Review Copies
Hey gang! This week, your pals Max "The Far Side" Scoville, Marty "Zippy The Pinhead" Sliva, Brian "For Better of For Worse" Altano, and Andrew "Garfield" Goldfarb wax poetic (and cinematic and artistic) about Red Dead Redemption 2's reveal trailer, and Jared Petty's lovely writeup about its Western themes. Titanfall 2 is being received really well, and finally, Bethesda is done sending out early review copies, which is a little frustrating for people in our field.

This week, Max "Baja Blast" Scoville, Brian "Pitch Black" Altano, Marty "Code Red" Sliva, and Alanah "Live Wire" Pearce have teamed up, yet again, to make noises with their weird little mouths. Obviously, the big news is the announcement of Red Dead Redemption 2, so we talk about our hopes and expectations, as well as Rockstar's legacy. Then, Max gushes about Battlefield One, which is weird, since he normally hates competitive military shooters. Finally, Brian got a PSVR, and he's in love with it.

This week, Max "Bucket of Pogs" Scoville, Marty "A Boglin" Sliva, and Andrew "The Littlest Pet Shop" Goldfarb are joined by Lucy "X-Men Fleer Ultra" O'Brien to chat about Mafia III and how in spite of all it does well, it doesn't quite work as a sandbox game. Conversely, HBO's Westworld is shaping up to be one of the best shows about video games that isn't actually about video games.

Most of the crew is in New York City covering Comic-Con, so Marty and Andrew brought in a rotating crew of IGN editors who handled a bulk of the initial PlayStation VR reviews. Is the future finally upon us, or is VR just a passing fad?
