Max, Alanah, Andrew, and Zach are all back from E3, and in spite of being a little goofy, we're also really excited about the games we saw there. Including (but not limited to) Cyberpunk 2077, Ghost of Tsushima, Control, The Last of Us Part II, Spider-Man, and Kingdom Hearts 3. Obviously, there are a ton we didn't even get to touch on, but luckily, we have a weekly PlayStation show (this one) -- Also, what we're playing: Vampyr, Persona Dancing All Over The Dang Place, Assassin's Creed Origins, and The Witcher 3.

Oh! And PS4 finally got a greatest hits collection!
