Molehill Mountain Episode 190 – Is It Just Me?


It’s just me, isn’t it?

  • 3:30 – Let me get this straight. I have to pre-order the Tony Hawk remake… to play the demo of the Tony Hawk remake?
  • 14:02 – A 9-minute Unreal Engine 5 demo was more satisfying that Microsoft’s 27-minute Xbox Series X presentation
  • 27:40 – Sony and Sucker Punch lied abut the visual quality of Ghost of Tsushima but I seem to be the only one who noticed or cares
  • 39:50 – Nintendo announces a new Paper Mario. Finger’s crossed that it’s better than the recent entries!
