Episode 42: Harry Potter and the Console Wars

The Save Room is back giving you that big Friday Mood. This week on The Save Room, the boys are back on their long-form bullshit. We talk more Hollow Knight, Kevin's Assassin's Creed Odyssey impressions and why Daniel always keeps five guns in his inventory slots. We also talk the future of the console space: with Xbox moving towards a stream-only initiative and Sony's announcement that PS5 was happening, it will be interesting to see where these platforms take gaming in the next...


Quick Save # 1: Little Shop of Venoms

What's up, Save Roommates, today we're bringing you a new series under the Save Room house called Quick Save! Whereas our regular episodes are winding, haphazard hour-long rides--Quick Save will be exactly as it sounds: quick episodes about a singular topic (well, at least quick for us). On the inaugural episode of Quick Save, we're talking Sony's newest cinematic comic book venture: Venom. It wasn't bad, buuut it wasn't great. Amidst it's 2 hour and 20 minute runtime, there are at least...

Episode 40: Farewell, Telltale, And Thank You For Everything

This week's episode of The Save Room is indeed a sad one. We mourn the loss of not only Capcom Vancouver, who brought us Dead Rising, but we also say a heavy goodbye to Telltale Games. In a very unexpected turn of events this past weekend, Telltale laid off 250 of its employees without notice, effectively shutting the studio down and cancelling all projects except one. 250 of the industry's top talent lost their jobs, benefits, and are without severance pay. It is a deeply sad situation and...
