This week on The Firmware Update, Joe and Malcolm traverse some serious peaks and valleys with June's release of games like Odin Sphere Leifthrasir, Inside, and Mighty No. 9. And yeah, they've been playing Pokémon Go like everyone else you've seen on the street.

Talking Points: Resident Evil 7's demo is downloaded by millions, but we haven't unlocked all of its secrets; BAH-ROCK. LESNAR; Batman: Return to Arkham sees an indefinite delay; No Man's Sky is finally, actually coming out; the dwindling possibility of a Demon's Souls remaster; Mighty No. 9; Mirror's Edge Catalyst; Inside; Odin Sphere Leifthrasir; Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE; Pokémon Go; an honest-to-God email!
