136 - Borderlands 3 Gameplay Reveal, Epic Games buys Rocket League & Days Gone Impressions

This week on the Rocket Punch Cast is all about more Borderlands news! Cameron and Will sit down and discuss their thoughts and impressions on the big Borderlands 3 Gameplay reveal, and wonder if what they were shown will be enough for the game to do well against other heavy hitters this fall. Plus, the team talks about the recent moves by Epic Games buying Psyonix, and talk about whether we need to be angry with them in their battle against Steam for the PC gaming marketplace (hint: rants imcoming). All this, plus the team give their in-depth impressions on Days Gone so far, lament on the latest issues with Anthem, and more!
