The Mash Those Buttons Show #10: XBox Series X Showcase, The Future of Console Generations, and Streets of Rage 4

May 11th, 2020

Microsoft is first out of the gate to showcase their games for the XBox Series X. Well, at least showcase games that will be on the XBox Series X. No exclusives were shown, but we did get a look the upcoming games we can look forward to getting our hands on and the graphics the series X will be sporting.

Unfortunately for this console generation and likely the ones going forward, console makers to work a bit harder, as graphical leaps won’t be as big and the most significant changes will deal with performance, and how do you showcase that? We discuss that as well as talk about our time with Streets of Rage 4.
