Dale, Jeremy, and LeGrande have completely new and totally-not-last-minute video game impressions to share. The only thing we’re missing is YOU. This week, Dale digs deeper into Battletech, and we talk about the risky propositions of running your own mercenary company. Hitman 2 is still cool. LeGrande and Jeremy tried out CS Go Danger Zone mode and have a SLIGHT difference of opinion. Jeremy also played the Devil May Cry 5 demo and has some conflicting feelings, but in a good way?

LeGrande, Dale, and Jeremy brave the cold to bring YOU the hottest mug of game news to keep you toasty warm. This week we cover The Game Awards, a few of the winners, and the WORLD EXCLUSIVES! Epic Games is making moves into game sales, and Valve is making moves into Steam Link. South Korea bans proxy gaming, and PlayStation Classic gets a little better with THIS ONE WEIRD TRICK. Finally, Soulja Boy gets in on the new generation of video games… in a fairly ill-advised manner.

LeGrande and Jeremy stumble out of their turkey-induced stupor and conscientious objections to bring you the important things in life: video game news! Beginnings and ends of eras with Kingdom Hearts, Rockstar’s Agent, and Steam Link, funding numbers and sales numbers, strife in the house of ActiBlizzard, a fairly solid PS5 rumor, and a celebrity has been tweeting about the hardcore game she’s been playing! We lay out the new releases, and have a good discussion about our preferences in platform emulation!

Jeremy battles technology cannibals in The Forest and generic fighters in Brawlhalla, while donning his gross organic ninja outfit in Warframe on Switch. LeGrande gushes over Battlefield V and muses on the divergence between BF and COD games.
