We’ve been waiting, and you’ve been waiting, for the middle of the week when the GameBytes Show crew brings you their impressions of the great video games they’ve been playing! Wait no longer! In a two-man show, Dale and Jeremy bring the goods, and you will be delighted and entertained! Dale kicks it off with a roundup of the latest updates to the very popular and fashionable team-based competitive first person shooter Team Fortress 2, and its trans-media tie-ins. He then switches to the very old-and-nobody-is-playing-it-anymore Destiny 2 (people are still playing it -ed.). Jeremy reaches back into the VR library a bit with Driveclub, but spices things up with a discussion of using a force-feedback-enabled racing wheel in virtual reality!
