February 19, 2018

Micah and Brad discuss initial impressions of Mario & Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Bayonetta on Switch, a pair of bills introduced in the Hawaii State Legislature that intend to regulate loot boxes, THQ Nordic acquiring, well, all the THQ properties, Rainbow Six Siege's 10-year plan and whether we'll see other games follow suit, and yet another video game Kickstarter running into troubled waters as System Shock goes on hiatus. We also ask about your experiences with video game Kickstarters!

Episode 230 - Vindicated!

February 12, 2018

This week we discuss deeper impressions on Monster Hunter World (as well as Brad's...very brief initial thoughts), revist some developing stories like the Quantic Dream harassment allegations and the Jess Cliffe case, cover some very expected Call of Duty and Destiny 2 news, Fortnite's crashing under a humongous concurrent player count, the new Metroid game being developed by Bandai Namco Singapore, Google's possible foray into gaming with the rumored 'Yeti' console, and our thoughts on the EVO 2018 lineup, most notably the omission of a Marvel vs Capcom title.

We also discuss possible explanations for Kaz Hirai stepping down as Sony CEO, Nintendo and Illumination Entertainment officially partnering on a Super Mario film, Far Cry 5's crazy DLC, GDC giving and then taking back an award from Nolan Bushnell, the end of Gigantic, the Nintendo Switch already eclipsing the Wii U's lifetime sales and why they're slated for long term success this time around, EA's blaming of "poor" Star Wars Battlefront II sales on the loot box fiasco, and the various rumors circulating about Microsoft possibly acquiring Valve, EA, or PUBG Corp.
