Podcast: How Do We Keep Up With All These Game Updates?

This week on Kotaku Splitscreen I'm joined by boss man Stephen Totilo to talk about No Man's Sky, Metroid Amiibo, Uncharted: The Lost Legacy and more.

Jason's out this week so Stephen steps in to sub. We talk a bit about Kotaku's expanding video team before moving on to the news of the week (11:08), including No Man's Sky's big 1.3 patch, NIMBYism in GTA Online, and Nintendo's decision to lock a Metroid difficulty setting behind an Amiibo.

Then I'm joined by with Kotaku Compete reporters Maddy Myers and Eric Van Allen (34:33) to talk about how they have been approaching esports coverage over the past six months, Eric's trip to the Dota 2 International last weekend, Maddy's case that Mario Kart AI is cheating, and whether PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is esports. (It is.)

Stephen and I wrap up the show (1:10:16) with some discussion of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, which I just reviewed, Nioh, and The Division. The article of Gita's that I mention at the start of the show is this one, and you should really read it because it's great.
