In a SHOCKING turn of events, and in preparation for our upcoming GameByties podcast, the entire crew is gathered together for our final “what we played” episode of 2018! Jerod played MechWarrior Online, Destiny 2 and Northgard seasonal events, along with a little Sins of a Solar Empire minor factions. Jeremy finally gets his wish to play Spider-Man, along with Tetris Effect. LeGrande also played some Spider-Man, but also the new God of War and Starcraft II Legacy of the Void. Dale finally joins in Battletech love with Jeremy and Jerod, and they go on about that for a while.

The weather is cold, cold, cold, but video games are HOT HOT HOT. (Reverse those if you’re in the southern hemisphere.) Let’s warm our hands and our hearts while basking in the glow of good conversation about the games we played this week. LeGrande has been straight-up murdering people in Dishonored 2, and we all learn how to make Skyrim on Switch 300% better. Dale attacks with 1 MILLION TANKS. (So many tanks.) Finally, Jeremy tried out the Monster Hunter World trial, and discusses its quality-of-life improvements and one of his biggest “wow” moments of 2017. Marvel vs Capcom Infinite. Jeremy also jumps into 2064: Read Only Memories and gives his overview of the GameBytes Show 2017 Best Vita Game That Didn’t Come to Vita… that DID come to Vita!
