We got some Gears 5 news at top of the show as well as the new Bad Boys trailer, some 14 years after the last entry. We are reasonably hype. In the news, Nintendo does it’s usual thing and drops a new Direct. They confirm some leaks, drop some new stuff the day of and somehow, someway still manage to surprise us a bit. Also there’s a new Nintendo peripheral in town and Reggie Fils-Amis goes back to school.
Rated G kicks off the show on a somber note. Dave and Dan talk breakups and how friends and video games can get you through. The duo run through the weekly pickups and their thoughts on the new Venom trailer. In the news, Night Trap is finally coming to the Switch, an Ohio college is giving out Fortnite scholarships and Valve acquires Firewatch developer Campo Santo. And in our convo of the week, Quantic Dream, developer of Heavy Rain and the upcoming Detroit – Become Human, sue over claims of inappropriate workplace conduct from a french journalism outlet earlier in the year. We discuss the odd, NSFW details.
It’s our annual end of the year holiday special! We each pick 5 games to nominate for Game of the Year. We break down why we picked ’em and in our next episode in the new year we’ll reveal the winner. So check us out and have a happy new year. Here’s to 2017 and all the excellent gaming to come.
