It’s the quiet before the storm as both Ubisoft and Microsoft gear up for their conferences in the very near future. As such, TheXboxHub team are pondering what to expect from these events, while also focusing on the hot topics right now including the price increase for Xbox Series X games and much, much more. So, please sit back and enjoy TheXboxHub Official Podcast Episode 38!

This week, regulars Gareth and James are joined by Edgar, who’s been listening to a whole host of podcasts recently, including 2 Bears 1 Cave and the Joe Rogan Experience. In stark contrast, James has binged Sword Art Online for a refresh ahead of Sword Art Online: Alicization Lycoris’ launch. After sharing thoughts on Penny Dreadful: City of Angels, Gareth then gets everyone talking about Ubisoft Forward and the Xbox Series X games event. There are a couple of bold predictions made too.

While the trio haven’t played a ton of games in the last seven days, there’s still a varied bunch to discuss. These range from the classic RTS Age of Empires II to Demolish and Build, which sees you knocking down buildings with a hammer. That’s not all though, with Metroid: Samus Returns on the 3DS getting a look-in as well.

Then there’s a fairly substantial amount of news to digest, including rumours regarding Silent Hill on PS5, the abuse received by folks involved in The Last of Us Part II, and the confirmed release date for WWE 2K Battlegrounds. One of the final points of discussion sees the team delve into the price inflation of games and whether they believe it’s necessary. 

Before they wrap up, each person explains what they’re looking forward to in the coming week and for some reason Jeff Goldblum steals the spotlight – tune in to find out why!
