    alien fire team, kena bridge of spirits, and of course no more heroes 3 can’t wait.

    SO…..glitch punk is coming out in August. Everything else is TRASH. I swear gamers are like simps these days that will hype up any trash game to feel like they are "Real gamers". Glitchpunk is literally the only interesting release coming out in August.

    I’ve not heard Brian for a long time but he was definitely my favourite on the comedy button.

    Am I misremembering his voice tone or has it changed? Genuine question. Thanks!

  32. WouldYouKindly on August 16, 2021 at 10:31 pm

    Glitchpunk reminds me of that PS1 game from the 90s called One



  33. Matthew Parrish on August 16, 2021 at 10:33 pm

    Playing Hades on Series X is going to be a dream come true.



  34. Olly Collins on August 16, 2021 at 10:33 pm

  42. Guilherme Lima on August 16, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    “If you want to keep hurting people in videogames” 💀 😂😂😂



  43. paul ellis on August 16, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    Cyber punk should of been called glitch punk and glitch punk should be called cyber punk 🥸😀



  44. clefCity on August 16, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    That screen shaking on Glitchpunk was unbearable to watch. Hope there is an option to fix that.



  45. Ching Chong Woohoo on August 16, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Hades, Ghost of Tsushima, Kena. Finally get to put my PS5 back to work after Ratchet and Clank & Returnal.



  46. Planet shashKing on August 16, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    Oh man, another GOLD video!
    i really love this style



  47. Modern Talking Central on August 16, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    August: Watch Dogs Legion (Darcy DLC), King’s Bounty 2 and Ghost of Tushima Director’s cut are the only 3 games that I’ll be purchasing and playing. Kena: Bridge of Spirits is on my September list. Far Cry 6 and The Dark Pictures: House of Ashes on my October list, with Crimson Desert, Beyond Good & Evil 2 , Mount & Blade Bannerlord, The Elder Scrolls 6, Dragon Age 4, Two World’s 3 and Deus Ex 3 on my 2022 and beyond list, with more to be added as time goes by.



  48. Mod Pablo on August 16, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    Going to assume single player FPS games are dead now. Everything is battle royale now.



  49. Wheezy From on August 16, 2021 at 10:49 pm

    Oh dtcuonsuyddunauyd 2 cokes out on xdddidibn. Mooeloekd comes out orn pasuyatioj 4



  50. CaptainTalon448 on August 16, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Biggest game on this list is definitely Psychonauts 2 though Humankind is definitely worth a look over for me as I love Civ games
