Carlos takes the Revival Club back to 2007 to revisit 'The Darkness' - a gritty, supernatural action game based on the comic book series of the same name. Starbreeze, best known for their take on "Chronicles of Riddick," developed the first game with their signature style but the game is perhaps most interesting for how it compares to its sequel wh…
 
This bonus episode marks the long awaited return of the "Top 3" (Formerly Top 5) podcast!

Announcement season is quickly approaching and the later half of 2022 is starting to come into focus. This week we react to the latest demo of 'Gotham Knights' which, even within our small circle, is shaping up to be a potentially divisive game. In impressions, we praise 'Rogue Legacy 2' for it's improved art style along with the bevy of improvemen…
 
This week's episode has real dad vibes thanks to an exceptionally long conversation about lawnmowers that carried over from our intermission. Nolan talks about 'Peglin' which serves as an addicting hybrid of Peggle and RPG combat. Krispy gives us a look at a surprisingly effective new Battle Royale called 'Vampire the Masquerade: Blood Hunt' and Ni…
 
With another Steam Deck added to our roster, we delve a little deeper into the new hardware and talk more about how it handles games like 'Supraland: Six Inches Under,' 'The Darkness 2,' and more. After last week's co-op stream, Nick, Nolan, and Chris talk about their immense enjoyment playing RAFT (Early Access) together; Honing their communicatio…
 
On this JAM PACKED edition of 4Player Podcast, Brad delivers his impressions after spending a week with the new 'Steam Deck' from Valve, Nick talks Weird West, and Chris Davis goes to bat for Ghostwire Tokyo. In the news, we play serious catch up thanks to the announcements of a new Tomb Raider game, a remake of Max Payne 1 & 2, Return to Monkey Is…
 
The group covers a ton of ground this week thanks to the release of Ghostwire Tokyo and the official unveiling of the new Playstation Plus service which launches in June! Brad finally talks in depth about his thoughts on Triangle Strategy and talks about Kirby and the Forgotten Land from an... unsusual perspsective. Nolan and Nick dive even deeper …
 
In this episode focusing on Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, Nick is joined by Chris Davis and community guest, Taq, to talk about the legacy of this game based on the wildy popular tabletop game. Space Marine not only holds up remarkably well but it serves as a nice entry point for newbies and a fun romp for Warhammer veterans alike. Of course, we als…
 
We are joined by Jeff this week to gush over the unexpected brilliance of Tunic. This indie darling has not only delivered on its promises, it has tapped into an aspect of classic video game nostalgia that elevates the experience well beyond expectations. We also delve deeper into Elden Ring and Chris Davis encourages us to try a short, indie horro…
 
The Elden Ring bonanza continues but we also give our early impressions of another promising new game. After years of watching development and playing TUNIC at trade shows, the full game is finally upon us and it delivers something that is both incredibly nostalgic and fresh by modern standards. In the second segment, we discuss the big reveal of H…
 
What an exciting week (month, year?) in gaming! Elden Ring has finally landed and the whole gang has shown up to talk about this epic new chapter in the From Software catalog; Not to mention the potential impact it could have on the future of open-world game design. We focus largely on design philosophy and mechanics but still manage to squeeze in …
 
This week, Brad shares his thoughts on Infernax and the first 3 chapters of Triangle Strategy which launches next month on Switch. We also dive a little deeper into our time with Dying Light 2 to talk about some of the late game developments such as the paraglider, grappling hook, and an increasingly disappointing story. In the 2nd segment, we answ…
 
With the new year just barely getting started, the gaming industry isn't slowing down. Dying Light 2 is out and despite some rough edges, it is shaping up to be a fun experience once again. Brad talks about his latest addiction, Vampire Survivors, Nolan goes all in on Pokemon Legends Arceus, and we return once again to the wonderful world of Supral…
 
It is immediately apparent that Brad is back in the podcasting saddle this week and the timing couldn't be better because there is a ton to talk about. Brad and Nick are the most unqualified people to talk about Pokemon but are somehow the first to two to try Pokemon Legends Arceus. Nick is loving Drinkbox's latest game, Nobody Saves the World, and…
 
We did it. Another year in the bag! In this 5 part series, we look back at all of the games, moments, characters, etc that defined 2021 in gaming. With all six of the core staff in attendance, we run through 23 categories that paint a pretty clear picture of what worked for us and what didn't in the past year.

It's a small crew this week but a BIG show. Not only is this our first "regular" episode of the new year, it also happens to be a huge week for the industry as Microsoft has announced it's intent to acquire Activision for the modest price of $69 BILLION. In the first segment, we talk about our efforts to play catch up with 2021 as our Award Show lo…
 
In our first episode of 2022, we take an in-depth look at all of the games that expected to launch in the year to come! In the first segment we cover all of the games with an expected release date or release window. After the break, we run through a big list of projects that have been announced that may drop in 2022 as well. It's a big list of well…
 
This week, we are blessed with a Christmas miracle! Carlos joins the call on the spot and stays for the entire show! Not only do we deliver our final thoughts on the 'Halo Infinite' campaign (minor spoiler warning) but Krispy brings impressions of 'Five Nights at Freddy's: Security Breach' and it sounds kind of amazing! Chris Davis talks about his …
 
The usual crew is joined by community guest, TheDrunkenMerchant, to talk at length about the new campaign for 'Halo Infinite' - a game that seems made to appease fans of the series and welcome newcomers in equal measure. Krispy talks about his experience with 'Final Fantasy XIV: Endwalker' now that the hotly anticipated expansion is out. In the sec…
 
As the years winds to a close, we start to delve into all the fun conversations that come with the Holiday season. With 'The Game Awards' scheduled to air next week, we talk about the nominees and rattle off an extensive list of games that may or may not make their debut at the big show. As always, take it all with a grain of salt and prepare yours…
 
To those who celebrate, Happy Thanksgiving! We here at 4Player are thankful to have such a lively and active community in Discord and on Twitch. So with that in mind, we did something a little bit different this week. We recorded two distinct segments featuring an upcoming game and brought in a community guest to talk about them! First up is Elden …
 
After rattling off a few quick mentions such as Breath of the Wild, Alan Wake Remastered, and Sackboy's Big Adventure, we finally take a deeper dive into Inscryption. This game is a card-based deck builder that finds really creative ways of blending with elements of atmospheric horror and escape room design. Nolan has continued his Metal Gear run b…
 
This week the group takes a deep dive into one of the biggest surprise hits of 2021, Guardians of the Galaxy from Eidos Montreal. David returns to the fray as well to talk about some more weird-ass David games... specifically Mary Skelter 3 and AI: The Somnium Files. Nick shares tales from his brief trip to New York City for the Dexter New Blood pr…
 
Halloween season is upon us so we take the opportunity to revisit the new horror-esque DLC, Outer Wilds: Echoes of the Eye and a short but sweet indie horror game called Chasing Static. Krispy sells us on Inscryption, a new horror deck-building game that is dripping with spooky atmosphere. Nick provides a quick update on Metroid Dread and then join…
 
Jeff returns to the fray to talk about Metroid Dread! The game is out and has defied expectations in a pretty big way. Nick delivers a Far Cry 6 update now that he's had more time to really sink some time into it; turns out.... it's fun... if not also a bit perplexing in it's tone. Jeff and Chris also give their early impressions of the full releas…
 
With the recent release of Deathloop, it only makes sense for the Revival Club to look back at the games that helped shape Arkane as the respected development studio that it is today. We went back to 2006 to take a look at a game that feels distinct from the games that define the studio today (Dishonored, Prey, etc). Of course, that game is Dark Me…
 
Nick is joined by community guest, Self, and resident fan of obscure FPS games, Chris Davis, to revisit S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat. For the uninitiated, this PC classic is often considered (for good reason) to be the precursor to the successful Metro series. While the series has spanned several major releases and a number of fan-made modded exp…
 
It's been two weeks since our last episode and despite some scheduling issues, the show must go on! It's a 3-player podcast this week but there is a TON to discuss including Nick's thoughts on the release of No Time to Die and a follow-up to our big Deathloop discussion from last week. Additionally, Nick feels compelled to give some VERY EARLY impr…
 
For an episode with so much Deathloop talk, you would think it would have inspired the episode title... but Chris Davis threw that out the window when he let his enthusiasm for I Am Fish bubble over... With that said, we do talk A LOT about Deathloop this week. In fact, the discuss takes up the entire first segment! In the 2nd segment, we talk Kena…
 
We kick things off this week with an MCU tangent in the wake of the new Hawkeye trailer plus a rant about the new horror flick, Malignant. Jeff returns to the hot chair this week to talk about The Forgotten City, There is No Game: Wrong Dimension, and his early impressions of Eastward! Nick gives his early thoughts on Tales of Arise as a newbie to …
 
Joseph makes his triumphant return to podcasting in this week's episode! He joins us to give a quick update on his game development adventures, talk about our time co-oping Aliens: Fireteam Elite, and share his unique brand of insight on the state of sequels (including The Matrix Resurrections!) Nick and Nolan talk about their foray into the wacky …
 
Ed fills the 4th chair this week to talk about Death's Door, Nioh 2, and a beautiful indie boss-rush game called Eldest Souls! Nick and Nolan ponder the effectiveness of the long awaited 12 Minutes which is shaping up to be one of the most divisive games of the year thus far. Additionally, Nolan talks about his time with the Riders Republic beta, N…
 
Long-time friend, community member, and former staff member, Jeff DeMelo, joins us this week to sit in for Brad who is absent due to the birth of his 2nd child! Chaos ensues. Jeff shares updates on the development of Refactor, how being a dad has changed his gaming habits, and gets us hype for 12 Minutes (which we'll talk more about next week). We …
 
Inspired by 'The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles,' Brad entices the group this week with the Dance of Sedu... *ahem* Deduction. Chris Davis talks up 'Chernobylite' (the next game from the developers of Get Even) and Nolan revisits the delightful world of 'Overcooked: All You Can Eat' to talk about the new Birthday Party expansion. We also discuss our…
 
It's been an odd week to say the least. Aside from catching up on games talked about in week's past, Nick has been involved in a comedy of errors involving his PC. On top of that, Chris Davis did the impossible and FINISHED Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey! With that in mind, we opened up questions this week to the community at large and spent the …
 
The first segment this week is dominated by games developed by Nintendo or rooted in a deep appreciation of classic Nintendo game design. Nick and Nolan talk up Death's Door which feels heavily inspired by classic Zelda but with a modern spin. Brad is replaying Metroid Fusion in preparation for the release of Metroid Dread and Nolan is playing The …
 
Nolan hosts the show this week since Nick has fallen victim to the perils of being middle-aged. As they say though, the show must go on. Brad delivers his impressions of Monster Hunter Stories 2 (much to the dismay of Chris Davis) and the indie strategy RPG, Wildermyth. Krispy is finally far enough to deliver some juicy impressions of Final Fantasy…
 
Leave it to Nolan to make a game about flipping houses (House Flipper) sound super compelling! Additionally, Brad has a "new" game for fans of Slay the Spire called Griftlands, Nick gives an update on his progress in Returnal, and Chris Davis talks about his secret love of Photography... and why New Pokemon Snap doesn't quite capitalize on that con…
 
Do you like Metroidvanias? We do! This week, Brad returns to talk about a "gemmie" that you won't want to miss called 'Astalon: Tears of the Earth.' On that same front, Nick played all the way through 'Blasphemous' and highly recommends it. We also talk about 'Mario Golf: Super Rush' for the Switch and the demo for the upcoming 'Monster Hunter Stor…
 
Not only are we rocking shiny new recording equipment (courtesy of our Patreon & Twitch supporters) but there is a LOT to talk about in this post E3 2021 world. Nick finally has a chance to talk at length about what he thinks of Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart and Nolan has found his latest obsession in the form of Industries of Titan. Krispy surpris…
 
For obvious reasons, 2021 may be remembered as the strangest year for both E3 and for the industry in general. Now that the first all-digital E3 has come and gone, we sat down to talk about the big news and glaring omissions from this year's bizarre showing. Despite all the weirdness, there is still a ton to be excited about including The Legend of…
 
It's hard to believe but after nearly two years, E3 is upon us. While the show is going full digital this year due to the Pandemic, the industry is bracing itself for announcement season nonetheless. In this episode we take a stab at predicting what we may or may not see at the various presentations from publishers like Microsoft, Nintendo, Ubisoft…
 
This week, Biomutant fails to deliver the experience we were hoping for but it's not all bad. Brad delivers an update on the Monster Hunter Rise 3.0 update and elsewhere in the industry, it begins to feel like E3 season despite the obvious caveats that go hand-in-hand with the event this year. We talk about the rumored Souls-like Final Fantasy spin…
 
What's old is new again in 2021! Nolan is deep into the 1.0 release of Subnautica: Below Zero and loving this follow-up to one of our favorite games of 2018! Nick and Chris talk about their time with Mass Effect: Legendary Edition before it inevitably veers into the great Mass Effect debate of 2007. Brad delivers his final thoughts on Resident Evil…
 
Nick is joined by community guests, TheDrunkenMerchant and GonzoLewd, to talk about the 2nd Revival Club game of the year, Final Fantasy XII! While the series has a long and storied history, this entry is often overlooked or excluded during discussions about the series despite being chock full of inspired (but flawed) ideas and being heavily influe…
