For the last year, you've been sending us emails, tweets, DMs, and texts telling us over and over again two important facts: 1. Hollow Knight is very, very good. 2. It is exactly our type of video game. And in response, over and over again, we've done two things: 1. Thanked you politely for your perspectives. 2. Found excuses to ignore the game until it released on Switch.

Well. consider this episode of Waypoint Radio to be an apology. We're sorry. You were right. We were wrong. (Except that we were also sort of right, because Hollow Knight is the perfect game to play on Switch.) In any case, click play below to listen to Patrick and I dig into everything we love about this game, and hang around to hear us discuss the E3 Game Critics award winners, dig into the Cyberpunk 2077 demo audio leak, and take a question about how games can prompt deep conversations with loved ones.

Games Discussed: Hollow Knight, Resident Evil 2, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Anthem, Cyberpunk 2077, Marvel's Spider-Man, Wargroove, Witchmarsh, Fortnite, Tetris Effect, Dreams, Ori and the Will of the Wisps.
