The USgamer Podcast on the Radical Heights of Overwatch: Retribution

PODCAST | Another battle royale game joins the ring, a new Mega Man X collection is happening, and more on this week's episode of The USgamer Podcast.

The USgamer Podcast is our weekly flagship podcast that is updated every Wednesday. You can find the previous episodes here.

Mike, Nadia, and Caty enter the battle royale that is another episode of our flagship podcast The USgamer Podcast to talk about Radical Heights, Overwatch's new event, and the grand return of the Mega Man X series this summer (download link here)!

The team isn't only talking about Early Access battle royale experiments and Overwatch's surprisingly deep lore though. The future of backwards compatibility on Xbox One, the latest round of the PlayStation 5 rumor mill, GameStop's CEO alluding to another great year for the Nintendo Switch, and the Final Fantasy XIV bunny suit finally being wearable for dudes too are all discussed as well. Heck, we even squeezed in some anime talk, because we know you love when the team gets off-topic.
