Caspius, SiliconNooB, and Seb report on the site-wide playthrough of Bravely Default II as it kicks into high gear, and they discuss the upcoming hybridised Gamescom, the almost-certain release of the Switch Pro, and the recurring failure that is VR.
Following the Nintendo Direct of the previous week, Sony responds with a State of Play video intended to build interest in a slate of underwhelming titles, including a particularly egregious Final Fantasy VII-centred showing from Square Enix.
