SHOWNOTES: Ahead of our upcoming Season Finale on Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade, the latest Game Launch Edition of Collateral Gaming is focusing on the latest Warriors spin-off of the franchise! For the uninitiated, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes is a mashup of 2019's Fire Emblem: Three Houses and the Dynasty Warriors series. Combining Musou-style hack and slash gameplay with Three House's setting and tactical RPG mechanics, the latest collaborative project from Koei Tecmo and Nintendo aims to satisfy fans of both genres, not unlike 2020's Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. But does it succeed? In yet another solo podcast venture, Ash answers that question!

SHOWNOTES: On the latest episode of Collateral Gaming, we explore Ninja Theory's beautifully crafted 2017 action-adventure title Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice!

With a sequel on the way, it's the perfect time to delve into this masterpiece, so please enjoy Part 1 of our Hellblade episode, and stay tuned for Part 2!

SPECIAL GUEST: Beau Maddox, Collateral Cinema Movie Podcast (@CCinemaPodcast)
SHOWNOTES: 4/20 may have elapsed, but Collateral Gaming isn't done celebrating! This year, we decided to kick it old school and get super baked to play the classic 1997 first-person shooter based on the Pierce Brosnan Bond film: GoldenEye 007! Rest assured, we spent our 4/20 holiday shooting and slapping each other on original hardware! Joined by Collateral Cinema co-host Beau, we provide our take on this N64 gem as not only a massively influential game for the FPS genre, but as a stoner game. If you're into it, stay tuned for our upcoming bad game review of Anthem and the rest of this season!
