On this week’s episode of IGN’s PlayStation show Podcast Beyond!, host Jonathon Dornbush is joined by Mark Medina and Jada Griffin to dive into the latest PlayStation news, discuss some classic PlayStation memories, plus a deep dive on the new game Rollerdrome with one of the developers behind it!
First, Jonathan, Jada, and Mark dig into the latest PS4 and PS5 news, including Astro’s Playroom devs Team Asobi working on their biggest project yet, , Spider-Man having a pretty successful PC launch, Marvel Games holding a panel during D23, and some updates on live-service and multiplayer games, like Fortnite getting Dragon Ball and Multiversus getting Black Adam and Stripe. And that really gets us on a weird Gremlins tangent.
Then, we dig into a discussion about our histories with PlayStation, and specifically discuss when PlayStation became our platform of choice. We dig into the games, consoles, and general eras of PlayStation that have had us coming back for years. And we want to hear your stories as well! Write in to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “PlayStation Origin Story” to tell yours!
Then, Jonathon speaks to Simon Bennett of Roll 7 to discuss the studio’s awesome new skating-meets-shooter game Rollerdrome, how the studio put this strange yet fun idea together, and why it made such a smart fit alongside the developers other games like OlliOlli.
