Analog Assault Episode 9: Shadow of War Impressions, Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser

Recorded on Thursday, October 12, 2017.

This week, we’re diving helmet-first into Mordor and talking about Shadow of War! contributor and gaming bud, NateJohns is our special guest. He’ll be taking us through some of his initial impressions of Shadow of War, explaining several of the in-game systems and experiences.


Naturally, the inclusion of microtransactions in Shadow of War has been a point of some controversy. They’re also present in another new title, Star Wars Battlefront II. We discuss microtransactions as a trend in gaming, and whether they belong in single-player games, multiplayer games, and mobile titles.


The latest teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi appeared recently. With it, I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror… I kid. But, the internet is having a heyday with some of the scenes in the trailer, including what some consider to be spoilers for The Last Jedi. We’re going to dish on how we liked the teaser trailer, and then dig in to some of our concerns and points of interest.


Submissions for Shots Fired cover mostly Destiny 2 and Star Wars, with a bit of 90’s nostalgia and superhero discussion.
