Always Online Podcast: Darktide, Synced, Marauders, Starship Troopers, And The Resurgence Of Looter Shooters Ep 456

Looter shooters have been seeing a bit of a resurgence lately and there's even more of them on the horizon, but what makes a good looter shooter? Do you like open world ones versus instanced ones? The loot cycle? Progression? What's the secret sauce? We're also seeing a new Starship Troopers game and some big dogs in gaming have a LOT of in-fighting going on! All that and more on this week's Always Online!
