Welcome to another new episode of The Iron Lords Podcast. On today’s show, the Lords are joined by….no one, as The Four Horsemen of Gaming ride solo on this, The Lords Day. After some brief combat sports talk, MLB The Show 18 impressions and sideline hating of Cognito’s self appointed “Shinobi” moniker, the Lords get into the topics of the day. Lord Cognito starts things off with a polarizing discussion about initial impressions of Sea of Thieves and how it effects the perception of quality for new games on the GamePass service. Next, Lord Addict talks about his co-op antics with Kid Smoove in jailbreak simulator, A Way Out, while questioning the staying power of the $60 game price point. Afterwards, Lord Sovereign pulls double duty as he breaks down the indie game announcements in the Spring Nindies showcase; and also discusses the Ubisoft partnership with Chinese conglomerate, Tencent, which ultimately helped derail Vivendi’s attempt at a hostile takeover. Finally, Lord King talks about the mobile versions of Fortnite and PUBG, the potential for these games to appear on Nintendo Switch and what this means for the prospects of crossplay across mobile, Switch, PC, Xbox and Playstation ecosystems. ILP 56 is in the books!
