We have just uploaded the 109th episode of the Alien vs. Predator Galaxy Podcast (right-click and save as to download)! And we’re reviewing Predator: Hunting Grounds! Regular hosts Corporal Hicks and RidgeTop are joining by community guest and contributing writer VoodooMagic to discuss Illfonic’s latest entry into the Predator gaming library!

Amid plenty of “wouldn’t it be cool if?” discussion, we break down our experiences playing the Fireteam and Predator, the things the game does so well, what it needs improvements with, whether it was worth buying a PlayStation 4 just for, and plenty more!

We recorded this episode prior to the Plasma Pistol buff, and RidgeTop mentions he’d like to see it given a damage increase which has since happened.

Niiiiice!!!  I'm not 100% sure but I believe I name dropped Kaliem, Predbabe and Wysps in this I think! 

Looking forward to giving this a listen!

I never thought I'd get to hear Voodoo's voice.

Very relaxing.

Kradan

Me too. Much more serious than I expected judging by his forum's personality

You certainly did!

I hope it came across how much I do f**king love the game. It's got some issues, but regardless, I'm still just having so much fun with it!

I basically agree with everything you guys said. I really like the game, I've played it a ton, but it definitely needs more content. It was one of my main fears before release given how Friday the 13th launched, especially with only a handful of maps, and unfortunately it's ended up being a bit of a repeat of that.

But I'm liking these initial content drops that we've had and are about to get. I definitely didn't expect them to add the Elder for free. But I certainly hope they add that datamined map, or really any new map, sooner rather than later, because maps are going to be the main thing that keeps the boredom from setting in more than anything else.

 Hey Gentlemen,
It's great to finally hear a review of this game from you guys! I pretty much agree with everything you guys said. I do feel however that there is still balancing issues that need to be resolved. As a primary Predator player I feel that the reinforcements once called in spawns so quickly it puts the predator at a huge disadvantage. Nevertheless I'm having a great time playing and I look forward to the updates especially the Elder Predator skin. By the way I though Voodoomagic fit right in perfectly! I had no idea he was a pred2 expert. My only question is when am I going to get a chance to play with you guys on hunting grounds?

It's required that I behave somewhat normal.   ;)

That's Wabbit's polite way of saying I put her to sleep.  :D

Appreciate it and glad to hear the chemistry worked!  I always found myself much more articulate in written form, so I wasn't sure how I'd come off, especially with Hicks and RidgeTop being such experts at it, so thanks!

QuoteMy only question is when am I going to get a chance to play with you guys on hunting grounds?

Did you join the AvP Galaxy Hunting Grounds community on PS4 or are you playing PC?

Ah. I'm on PS4, so we'll have to shelve it until Illfonic fixes those cross play issues. :)

Nah, William Hope puts me to sleep. You're just relaxing. ;D

awesome listen as always; great first appearance, voodoo!

also, as someone without a console/pc but seriously tempted to buy a ps4 just to play this (though i think i'll wait for the ps5 since it's only five months away), i can totally relate :P
