Platinum Explosion: The PlayStation Podcast
A weekly PlayStation podcast focusing on the oceanic perspective on the latest news.
Every episode is guaranteed laughs and antics and bound to go off-topic before wrapping up in the latest PS trophy talk in #everytrophycounts
DontNod have released a short trailer for Life is Strange 2 that teases a more superpowered sequel and elements tying into Captain Spirit. Dylan and Ash discuss what a more X-Men like Life is Strange would be like, and if they'd be fans of the game going that direction.
Also on the show:
-- Telltale is heading into the finale of The Walking Dead and have two great ways to catch up on the franchise.

-- The Quiet Man is getting a live-stream from Square Enix and the guys hope they'll get an explanation of exactly what the game is.

Plus Ash has played something other than Fallout Shelter and Dylan solves a cracking trophy case LIVE on the air.
Do you remember Erica? The game was announced at Paris Games Week in 2017 as a PlayLink title coming from new developer Flavourworks. Well, it seems the game might be finally releasing, and sooner than you think.
PlayStation has finally revealed that Concrete Genie from PixelOpus will be releasing October 9th with both a Standard and Deluxe Edition now available for pre-order.
The next Grand Prix coming to Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fueled will introduce a brand new track as well as lots of new unlockables and characters. Oh, and Activision is now adding the micro-transactions that most of us felt was oddly missing in the way the games Wumpa Coins system was set-up.

PlayStation Game Reviews
Dylan and Ashley have put their helmets on and ventured into the depths of the wild universe in No Man's Sky Beyond and the PSVR update. They discuss how it controls, looks, and if it's a more exciting experience in VR than playing the game normally.
We set the challenge a couple of weeks ago and now Dylan & Ashley share their #HeartmanChallenge lists. The rules are simple: at least one movie and TV scene with a song or music video and tally up to less than 21-minutes.
Concrete Genie, the upcoming PlayStation exclusive, has finally received a release date! Joel Gralton from Ani-Game managed to get a chance to preview the game (read that here), so Dylan invited him on the show to answer some questions about the game.
With its latest entry into the Wolfenstein franchise, there comes an odd mix. Youngblood lets you play cooperatively, but its mission design and RPG flair has Dylan confused about the direction of the game. He's enjoying it though and discusses with Ash.
Hideo Kojima has let loose at San Diego Comic-Con and gave us ALL the details on the Heartman character! I kid, of course, he gave a very weird piece of information, but it makes for an inspired #challenge that we'll be doing in the coming week(s).
A new report suggests Oculus could be trying to secure an Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell VR game exclusive to Oculus platforms. What would this mean to PSVR if a big triple-a — and what is known as a console series — was pulled away from the PSVR? We discuss and speculate this week.
Sony is looking to join the Monopoly game that Xbox has been playing for a while now by themselves. Which hot properties will be left on the board to pick up after Xbox has been passed go a few times?
Dylan has grabbed himself the latest in the VR craze, the Oculus Quest. It's no wires, no hassle approach to VR has Dylan hoping that PlayStation could adopt that approach, rather than focusing on visual fidelity of VR games.
