Mortal Kombat, a franchise that always seems to be in the middle of a controversy, is back in the limelight again over excessivemicrotransactions and an ending cinematic for Jax that some fans are pretty sour on. We get Persona 5 DLC news and another spinoff in the form of a musou style game for both PS4 and Switch, Shuntaro Furukawa denies any new Switch version for E3 and Tim Sweeny, CEO of Epic Games takes some shots at the Steam Store. And it’s the end of the month so that means Dave and Dan go over the upcoming games for May. All that and more on episode 162 of Rated G for Gamers.
It’s the end of the year and you know what that means, Game of the Year time! We nominate 5 a piece and we’ll announce our winner and a new edition to our segment, 2nd and 3rd place. At the top of the show, we run down our pickups over the holiday break, what we’ve been playing lately, and why in the hell Danny picked up the SNES 3DS.

We discuss on episode 96 of Rated G for Gamers.
We got a special episode to celebrate the Thanksgiving break. No news this week, no convo of the week. Just us, talking turkey, Black Friday, tv mounting, and handling the family during the holidays. So grab a turkey leg and some stuffing and enjoy episode 95 of Rated G for Gamers.
