Your weekly dose of our TheXboxHub podcast is here, discussing all sorts of gaming news, opinions about a selection of recent releases, and anything interesting going on in other forms of media. In TheXboxHub Official Podcast Episode 28 you can expect talk regarding Xbox Game Pass, lockdown activities, and ideas regarding films or TV shows that would possibly be worth adapting into video games.
This week the trio of Gareth, James and Richard launch almost immediately into the huge announcement that Red Dead Redemption 2 would be heading into the Xbox Game Pass library in May. It sparks speculation over the recent GTA 6 rumours and the way in which content is apparently going to be delivered periodically. Then the team discuss other non-gaming things they’ve been up to, including watching all the Pirates of the Caribbean (yes, all 5) movies and a new sci-fi show called DEVS.
In the past seven days, the guys have been playing a wide range of games on Xbox One and even the Nintendo Switch. Amongst those receiving genuine praise are the gothic survival RPG Sunless Sea: Zubmariner Edition, hidden object puzzle adventure The Secret Order: Shadow Breach, light-based puzzler Archaica: The Path of Light, and the exciting racer Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
The final discussion point sees a number of potential ideas bandied about for which of their favourite novels, films or TV shows they’d like to be made into video games. While there are a lot of terrible suggestions, a couple could actually turn out rather well if any gifted development teams ever gave them a go.
