The Mash Those Buttons Show #11: Unreal Engine 5, Ghosts of Tsushima Event, and Escape from Tarkov

May 18th, 2020

Big news from this week was the reveal of the Unreal Engine 5, showing the first real time footage of the Playstation 5. Though the Unreal Engine will be a multiplatform engine, many seem to think that it is a Playstation exclusive. We also got to see gameplay footage of Ghosts of Tsushima, just in time to hype it up before its July release. We also got great news in Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 being remasters, and not so great news in that Elder Scrolls 6 is quite far away. Finally, we do an early access report on Escape from Tarkov with the guys from SITREP Radio.

Hosts

Jarret is Executive Director as well as one of the founding members of Mash Those Buttons. He plays all types of games, but tends to lean more toward FPS, Stealth, and Racing Games. Currently too involved in Overwatch.

Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.

Mike is a huge lover of all things media based. From games to movies, comics and music. Preferably the alternative genre.

A bit of geek when it comes to TV, Movies, Podcasts, and Games.

I've been a gamer ever since I can remember. I started with a Commodore64, then Amiga1200, and various PCs. Consoles I've owned include SNES, Wii, GameCube, Xbox 360 and every version of PlayStation to date. My most played games are Team Fortress Classic, Championship Manager, early COD titles (don't mention Black Ops or MW3!) as well as almost all of the Gran Turismo and GTA series'.
