Carrion slurped its way onto Xbox Game Pass last week, and its eat-everyone ethos inspired us to take a look at five other amazing games where you deal with enemies mainly by consuming them. Then it's on to (of course) Carrion, Destroy All Humans!, the reveals from the Xbox Series X Games Showcase and the Nintendo megaleak, and your thoughts on streaming media through next-gen consoles.

Something about the sight of crypto-fascist stormtroopers in ominous gasmasks will always stir contempt within the rebellious heart, and on this week's show, we celebrate the return of special guest Dan Amrich with a look at five games that pit you against the forces of a corrupt police state. Then it's on to (lots of) talk about Ghost of Tsushima, Paper Mario: The Origami King, the Nintendo Direct Mini, and your thoughts on whether we still need E3.

This week's release of Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2 got us thinking about retro-styled games that often started out as companion pieces to bigger, more modern spectacles, but quickly became fan favorites and even enduring classics - so we grabbed Leif Johnson to talk about five of the best examples, after which we chat about Iron Man VR, get weirdly excited for Ready Player Two, and talk about the games you're most looking forward to in the latter half of 2020.
