News regarding Vince Ingenito, former editor at IGN came out last week regarding sexual harassment in the workplace. We wanted to wait till all the facts shook out till we covered the story. Our take kicks off the news segment. EA couldn’t do anything right this week. A slew of controversy surrounding Star Wars – Battlefront II involving Reddit comments and a CNN report cause EA to suspend their loot boxes/microtransactions. A major blow indeed. Also in this episode, we discuss Thor: Ragnarok, the Punisher series, Black Friday sales, and the benefits of 4K. And in our convo of the week, we pick some of the winners for the Game Award nominees.
