After the recent setbacks for Microsoft, it’s been a relatively easy-going week in comparison; but that’s not to say there’s nothing happening in gaming. With new releases hitting the digital stores, fresh details about PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller, and a peek at the Xbox Series X UI, TheXboxHub Official Podcast Episode 44 has plenty to offer – and then some!

Gareth and James are joined by Richard this week, kicking things off with what they’ve done lately. Their viewing habits mean there’s a blast from the past in the form of Twin Peaks, a plea to check out Succession, and the unearthing of a gem in the gaming-focused Netflix documentary, High Score. 

Gaming-wise, and someone’s (guess who?) loving the locomotive life of Train Sim World 2, while Richard’s rocking out in the rhythmic Double Kick Heroes. Unfortunately, James didn’t have the best of times defending a castle in Wizards: Wand of Epicosity, which led him to give Creature in the Well a go for a chance of experiencing a bit of fun. There are other games discussed too, so be sure to tune-in to get the low-down on them all.

Then they move onto a very topical quiz – hosted by Richard – which sees Gareth and James testing their wealth of gaming knowledge in a head-to-head. Following that are a few pieces of news, with first impressions of the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controller and its haptic feedback. There was also a reveal of the Xbox Series X user interface, which stirred up a rather mixed reception.
