A surprise Starfield delay and FIFA isn't FIFA any more

Plus: A Nintendo Indie Showcase! And more.

Welcome to the second Weekly, a new podcast show in which we recap the week on Eurogamer so you don't have to read it. Hang on! You do have to read it, it's just that we've got your back if you don't want to. I don't mean that! I mean if you don't have time to. God, these posts are a minefield!

Weekly is hosted by me, Bertie, and my guests this week are Martin Robinson, who likes Nintendo games, and Wesley Yin-Poole, who likes FIFA games, which is entirely appropriate as FIFA and Nintendo happened to be big talking points last week. But also Starfield, shocked face!

We also spend some time chewing over the Nintendo Indie showcase, learn about F1 from Martin, who always seems to be talking about that as well, and we talk about dodgy Xbox DRM stopping people playing their games. All that plus a whistle stop tour of the reviews, features and videos that popped up on the site last week. It turns out we actually do some work after all.

I hope you're enjoying Weekly. Please bear with us while we get it off the ground and into its stride, and as we reorganise the podcast feed now three separate shows use it. We also had a couple of technical hiccups with our recording platform this week, so apologies that I am in low resolution - I can assure you I do not relish the look.

Eurogamer supporters get new episodes of Weekly every Friday. They are then pushed to all major podcasting platforms on Monday, for everyone else.

That's it. Thanks for listening. See you next week.
