#145: Princess Mononoke
Play • 2 hr 28 min

We happen to love Studio Ghibli here on KnockBack, and we know that many of you do, too. However, Hayao Miyazaki's 1997 animated picture Princess Mononoke may be the most beloved movie in his team's extensive, decades-long filmography. The setup is simple: Ancient and solidified nature is in existential crisis thanks to humanity's industrial progress, and with both 'sides' dug in, it looks like only one can emerge. Or is there another way? Let's follow the journey of the cursed Prince Ashitaka as he tries to save his life, ward off societal and natural destruction, and perhaps even unite two sides of a conflict, a move that once seemed impossible. So whistle for Yakul, friends! Our journey begins on the other side of Play.

Now that the PS5 and the Series X have been out for a while we are taking a step back to re-examine and reevaluate our experiences with the next-gen hardware. Today’s episode is going to be a little bit different as we will be checking in with an Xbox Series X owner (Evan) and a PS5 owner (Amir) to get their reevaluate takes with the consoles after about spending a month with them. We are also taking a look forward by asking ourselves what we might want out of the newest console generation. Thanks for watching and listening to the Inside Gaming podcast and have a great weekend everyone!  * Please note we are still on break and this was recorded just before the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 which would have been a fun litmus test for both consoles but the game wasn’t out yet.  00:00 - Intro 01:00 - The premise of today’s show 01:41 - Is the DualSense really all that? 04:47 - What is your favorite part of Series X so far? 08:32 - Do the PS5 and Series X really feel like brand new consoles? 13:06 - How is the jump from base PS4 to PS5? 15:32 - What makes you think about the opposite next-gen console? 19:33 - Have either of you run into storage issues yet? 19:46 - How do you know which version of a game you are playing? 26:42 - Has your PS5 or Xbox experienced bugs or trouble? 33:54 - PS Plus Collection vs Game Pass 37:21 - Series X worth it just for the couch aspect? 45:28 - What do you want from the PS5 and Series X going forward? 55:55 - We are excited about the new generation of consoles!
