Big news week this week, so this episode is going to be pretty news heavy. Ubisoft officially announced the viking centric Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, so we discuss the few details we have about that. We get an announcement for the XBox Series X showcase, as well as learn about Gamespot’s summer games festival Play for All. We get new release dates for Ghosts of Tsushima and The Last of Us Part II. We wrap up talking about the current state of games media and how they play for hate clicks.

All this and more this week on The Mash Those Buttons Show!
