It’s the one you’ve all been waiting for. Yes, the 40th instalment of our popular gaming podcast is finally here. As luck would have it, there’s an Xbox Games Showcase to digest and so that’s our main focus for TheXboxHub Official Podcast Episode 40. With a whole load of titles shown off for Xbox One and Xbox Series X, are there Infinite reasons to be excited after the Xbox Games Showcase?

In this episode, Gareth and James are joined by Richard, with the aim of sharing their unscripted thoughts on everything they’ve seen during the Xbox Games Showcase. And it kicks off with discussion about the big one, Halo Infinite, which received a demo of the campaign. The open-world feel and inclusion of a grappling hook style feature to Halo pleased some more than others. It wasn’t long before Forza Motorsport got a mention as they speculated what the future holds for the franchise.

While every game is covered throughout the podcast, there were a few that really caught their attention. Games such as Rare’s lovely looking Everwild; Tell Me Why, which caused intrigue with its Life Is Strange vibe; the next huge RPG from Obsidian, Avowed; Psychonauts 2 with Jack Black on the soundtrack; the creepy dual-worlds of The Medium; and the action-MMORPG Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis.

There was also a chance to check out a few of the pre-show announcements, with the delightful Balan Wonderworld stealing the spotlight. When you’ve got the creative minds behind Sonic on-board, you’re always going to be on the right track towards success.
