The best video game podcasts make the listener feel like they’re eavesdropping on friends just naturally chatting about the games they’re playing or the week’s news. First Person Shouters, a new show out of Northern Ireland, does that very well—it is like dropping in on a Discord call between friends.
In the show’s fifth episode, hosts Jonathan, Kitty, Cass, and Chris talk about PUBG, Apex Legends, Deliver Us The Moon, Hypnospace Outlaw, Yes Your Grace, Knights & Bikes, and Haven, amongst others. They also discuss a few of the trailer highlights from last month’s Game Awards. But the highlight of this episode is their chat about Cyberpunk 2077, including the character creation, gender diversity options and representation in CD Projekt Red’s latest.
