Palworld Might Be Problematic But Do We Care? – The Press Start Podcast

The team talks Pals, Ports and Presentations.

The Press Start Podcast is proudly sponsored by SteelSeries, and the team exclusively uses SteelSeries Alias microphones. Find out more and buy yours here.


We chat about the Xbox Developer Direct this week, but it’s not just Indiana Jones: The Great Circle that’s got people talking. Palworld has set the internet on fire with criticism that it copied Pokémon and speculation about its use of AI. We discuss the problematic nature of the survival game, everything announced at the Xbox Direct including Hellblade II and Avowed, and our review of The Last of Us: Part II Remastered.
