It’s time for TheXboxHub Official Podcast Episode 79, our weekly podcast that’s full of absolutely everything, but mostly gaming. In this episode, Returnal is just one of a handful of tough games on the agenda, alongside Super Meat Boy Forever and Pato Box. Meanwhile, the divisive Line of Duty finale is one of many talking points from the world of TV and film. Make sure you listen for the lowdown on all of that, and more!

Lend your ears to the sounds of Gareth, James and Darren, who begin by delving into the hot topics outside of gaming. It’s all been happening during ‘Golden Week’, with Invincible and Line of Duty reaching their season finales - albeit with a mixed response. Excitement is building for Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, while one of the team is extra happy having recently picked up a fancy new piece of tech.

As for what games they’ve been playing lately, the trio have really got stuck into some pretty hardcore experiences. Expect to hear about the repeated deaths and failures, as well as the enticing aspects, of Returnal, Super Meat Boy Forever and Pato Box. Other games discussed include the renovation focused Tools Up!, the newest FMV in the form of Dark Nights with Poe and Munro, and visual novel Cinders. 

Despite being a slow news week in general, there are still items of interest such as the announcement for the free-to-play The Division: Heartland, the slew of games getting an FPS boost, and the Tribeca Games award nominees. And finally, there’s just enough time to talk about a dedicated Red Dead Online community putting a lot of effort into their role-playing antics.
