Am I going insane, or is the available episode a duplicate of last week's recording?

2 things:

1) Your comments about Sunset Overdrive are so American - you're OK with the violence, baddies exploding in a shower of blood, etc but having characters saying "fuck" is a little much? You guys are hilarious...

2) A year ago you guys seemed to think you'd be using your PS4's more than your Xbox One's - but the last few shows make me think you're the other way round. Are you using your Xbox ones more than your PS4's? If so - why?

Eh, I don't think it's objection for objection's sake - even in a world with the New World paradox of normalised violence/put your pants back on please, we're American.

It's about cohesive presentation. For example, the recent Styx: Master of Shadows. Great game, probably one of the most old school stealth games out, but came packaged with a parboiled script of limited sophistication that had its fair share of misplaced 'fucks'. Oh, how I wish no fucks were given, because it felt odd to play some sort of dark fantasy creation that - unlike Game of Thrones, which has a seedy everyday humanity to it - needed to drop F-bombs like it was a Busta Rhymes album.

Maybe I need to recalibrate... I almost don't notice swearing, perhaps that says something about the people I spend time with... I did laugh out loud at the phrase "you drove the fuck out of that train" - does that make me immature? I do find that the humour in sunset overdrive hits more than it misses.
