The IGN PlayStation Team sits down and talks all things Sony, sprinkling a little madness and song along the way. Podcast Beyond is the premiere source for Sony news, opinions and old-fashioned shenanigans.

Episodes

Podcast Beyond Episode 510: Battlefront 2 and Spec Ops: The Line's Writer, Walt Williams  

This week, Max, Marty, and Brian are joined by Walt Williams, the writer of Spec-Ops: The Line, Star Wars Battlefront II, and Significant Zero, a "book" about what it's like to make video games. (A book is sort of like a video game, but much quieter, and made of old trees.)

MAJOR SPOILER WARNING: If you haven't finished Spec-Ops: The Line, The Last of Us, or Mass Effect 3 you might want to skip this one. Or, just bite the bullet and hear a really great in-depth discussion about storytelling in games.

Podcast Beyond Episode 509: LA Noire on PS4 and Square-Enix's Avengers  

This week, Max Scoville, Marty Sliva, and Andrew Goldfarb catch up after PAX, analyze some Crystal Dynamics job listings for The Avengers Project, discuss what makes a good superhero game, and freak out about Rockstar bringing a remastered LA Noire to consoles in a couple months.

Podcast Beyond Episode 508: Gamescom, Yakuza, and Steve Gaynor  

This week's episode is a little wonky, so bear with us. This week a frazzled Max and a very jet-lagged Brian and Alanah are joined by special guest Steve Gaynor from The Fullbright Company (Gone Home, Tacoma) -- we attempt to discuss everything that happened at Gamescom, including Star Wars Battlefront II, BioMutant, Fe and a bunch of games coming out this week including Yakuza Kiwami, Everybody's Golf, and the two (2) PSVR games about bears.

Podcast Beyond Episode 507: Uncharted's Lost Legacy, Biomutant, Yakuza Kiwami & Fear Effect  

This week, join Max, Marty, and Jonathon as they FINALLY get to talk about Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which is out today, and which Marty reviewed. Everyone else is at Gamescom, getting hot scoops on games like Star Wars Battlefront II, Jurassic World Evoluton, Fe, and Biomutant. In other news, the Playstation classic (?) Fear Effect is getting a big huge remake/remaster. Maybe you remember Fear Effect from its controversially horny ad campaign. Meanwhile, some cool cyberpunk games dropped last week, Observer and Tokyo 42, and next week Yakuza Kiwami is out so go check out our review.

 

Podcast Beyond Episode 506: Sonic Mania, Nidhogg 2, and Gnomageddon  

Hey everybody! We're back once again (that is, Max, Marty, Brian and Dornbush). A ton of games are out this week, including Sonic Mania, Nidhogg II, Cities: Skylines, Tokyo 42, Agents of Mayhem, and plenty more. We also got wind of a cancelled PS4 game called Gnomageddon, and we almost manage to have a discussion about that.

Podcast Beyond Episode 505: Hellblade, Nier, Little Nightmares, and Mental Illness  

This week, join Max, Marty, and Alanah to discuss the hottest new Playstation game, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, which released today. In spite of minimal pre-release buzz, it's very cool and you should check it out (or at least check out Brandin's review.) Anyway, we also discuss some other, less new games, like What Remains of Edith Finch, Little Nightmares, Nier: Automata, and Spec Ops: The Line

Oh, and we're giving away a copy of the Final Fantasy XII collector's edition. To enter, head to our YouTube channel, subscribe, and comment on this week's episode (#505) with a Square RPG you want to see remastered next.

Podcast Beyond Episode 504: Pyre, Fortnight & Hellblade  

This week, Max, Marty, Brian, and Dornbush break down the smattering of smaller releases this week, including the long-awaited Fortnite, Pyre, Sundered and the oddly under-hyped Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice. Meanwhile, Playstation VR continues to get supported with new games like Dino Frontier, but it's still hard to tell what the future of that high-tech hat has in store.

Beyond #503: Uncharted: The Lost Legacy is So Much More Than DLC  

This week, Marty, Alanah, and Andrew talk about how great Pyre is, why Nazi Zombies seems rad, and Uncharted's next chapter.

Also dogs. And butts. And dog butts.

They're very sorry.

Podcast Beyond Episode 502: Kingdom Hearts 3 and Marvel's VR Game  

Hi gang! Join Max, Brian, Terri and Jonathon as they discuss the Kingdom Hearts 3 news out of D23, Marvel's VR game, Marvel Heroes United, and a bunch of other fun stuff. Apologies for the brief description and late episode, we're all very busy and sweaty covering San Diego Comic-Con. Please, check out what we've been up to there.

Beyond Episode 501: Crash Bandicoot's Future and Spider-Man in VR  

This week, Max Scoville, Marty Sliva, Brian Altano, and Jonathon "Guy With a Crash Bandicoot Hat" Dornbush sit down to discuss... Well, Dornbush's Crash Bandicoot hat. And also his review of the N-Sane Trilogy, and the future of that orange jorts-wearing PlayStation mascot. In other news, there's a free Spider-Man Homecoming PSVR game, and you get what you pay for. Meanwhile, Marty finished Persona 5 and Sony's finally put PS4 games on PS Now.

Beyond Episode 499: Horizon DLC, Beyond Good and Evil 2, and Dragon Ball FighterZ  

This week, the crew chats about the awesome Nex Machina, the insanely-ambitious Beyond Good & Evil 2 tech demo, and how stoked they are to hop back into Horizon's DLC. Also, they teach you how to make hamburgers.

Podcast Beyond Episode 497: How Was Playstation's 2017 E3?  

If you missed the big live show from E3 last week, here it is preserved for posterity! Max Scoville, Marty Sliva, Andrew Goldfarb and Daniel Krupa sat down to discuss as much from Sony's E3 presentation, like Spider-Man, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, God of War, Days Gone, and the Shadow of the Colossus remake. Don't worry, we'll have another regular episode later this week to discuss everything we didn't have time for during E3!

PlayStation E3 2017 Predictions — Beyond #496

Podcast Beyond Episode 495: Far Cry 5's Farm Crimes, Kojima's Secret Base and Everybody's Golf!  

Greets! This week, everyone's running around in some state of pre-E3 panic, so excuse us if we seem scattered. Join Max, Andrew, and Alanah as they discuss Andrew's trip to Japan, which included Kojima's cool-as-heck studio and BitSummit, as well as Far Cry 5's controversial (what isn't, these days?) new setting, Everybody's Golf, and some new VR games. Worry not, next week's show will be chock full of E3 predictions.

Beyond Episode 494: Far Cry 5 In The USA & Red Dead Redemption 2's Delay  

This week, Max, Marty, and Brian discuss a bunch another shotgun blast of pre-E3 rumblings, including the vague tease of Far Cry 5's new Montana setting (and what that means for the franchise) as well as the bittersweet announcement that Red Dead Redemption 2 is pushed until Spring 2018. In other news, Dick Wilde is a fun game where seagulls go to the bathroom in your eyes and Spider-Man is playing baby Nathan Drake in the Uncharted movie.

Podcast Beyond Episode 493: Farpoint, PSVR Aim Controller, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 & Injustice 2  

Join MaxMarty and Brian as they discuss a whole mess of new games that are out in the wild: Injustice 2, The Surge, Seasons After Fall, and Farpoint, which is the first game to make use of the Playstation VR Aim (that weird Super Scope light gun) -- plus, there are big announcements: Far Cry 5, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2, and a Witcher Netflix show! Wowsers!
