Why Metal Gear Survive is Both Better and Worse Than You Think

Why Metal Gear Survive is Both Better and Worse Than You Think

THE USGAMER PODCAST | Nadia, Mike, and Caty talk Assassin's Creed Origins, a Sonic movie, and of course, Metal Gear Survive.

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

What to do with Metal Gear Survive? On its own merits, it mostly seems fine, but it can't help being weighed down the legacy of a legendary franchise. Should that matter? And is Metal Gear Survive any good under its own merits? We discuss that and more in the latest episode of the USgamer Podcast (download link here!)!

But wait, there's more! Caty is a big fan of Assassin's Creed Origins' new Discovery Mode, and she has plenty to say on the subject. The group also discuss the upcoming Sonic movie, PUBG's Miramar troubles, and DOOM for the Switch's new motion controls. As usual, it's a packed episode of our flagship podcast.
