Ultimate Audio Bang podcast: our first online shooters

Bungie jumping back to where it all began

On this week's episode of Ultimate Audio Bang, Imogen shares some juicy news nuggets with us. Splitgate – a Halo meets Portal FPS – seems to have garnered some serious interest. Naturally, both of us haven't played it. Sounds cool, though. Elsewhere Halo Infinite's doing a thing this weekend, which we also aren't playing. To be fair, we're waiting for John Masterchief's invite. And just to round things off, Apex Legends has a new character, while PUBG might be going free-to-play. It's a stacked one, folks.

For the theme, we decide to throw it back to the games that got us started in online shooters. This quickly transforms into a chat about the good old Destiny days. For Imogen, it was her first game, and for me, it was my second. I dread to think what it's like now, though, and how much I've missed.

It was also Imogen's turn to surprise me with three weird and wonderful player names, and this week doesn't disappoint. We chat France and Kung Fu Panda, both of which are excellent.
