Hello you fine people, the Push Square Podcast is back and transmitting straight to your ears with another great episode! This week it's all about Horizon: Zero Dawn as Lord Sammy Barker comes back onto the show to get into the nitty and gritty of Aloy's adventures. He also treats you guys to some stuff about NieR: Automata - now that's bang for your buck! Before all that, though, we discuss the hot topics found in the game industry news from the last few weeks in our typical fashion.

Once all that's out of the way, we share what games we've been having a laugh with of late and then treat you all to a phenomenal interlude poem submitted by the talented TheMcNoisy which you really ought to check out! This month we also introduce a new section called Moan of the Month where Ben and I set loose the shackles of our bitterness on a given topic and have a good old moan - this month we're moaning about the industry's shift to 'always online' gaming and the inevitable death of retro gaming as we know it. We then round off the show, as always, with the great questions asked by you guys in our forum thread.

We love chatting with you and hearing your feedback about the 'cast, so please feel free to drop a comment in the forum thread, in the comments section below, or by emailing us at our fancy pants email: [email protected]. Better yet, if you're a tweeter on the Twitter then check us out @pushsquarepod, where we share silly GIFs, decide what the best kind of biscuit is, and all kinds of other Sheninigwans. We'd really love it if you could give that a follow!
