Jerod makes his triumphant return to the show, taking up THREE WHOLE CHAIRS, Texas-style. This week, Jeremy and Jerod tackle Sins of a Solar Empire 2 (it’s real and it’s spectacular) and Return to Monkey Island, two franchises that are getting sequels after double-digit years of absence. We dig into the 2022 nominations for Geoff Keighley’s The Game Awards brought to you by Geoff Keighley, we run through the entire list of Netflix game adaptations, and we preside over the latest professional bean-spillage on video game social media, because we’re gossips like that. Plus, new releases and our news speedrun!

This week, a few little updates and a few “homey” new impressions. LeGrande is impressed with Modern Warfare 2. Dale continues the journey of his life to the center of the galaxy in Elite Dangerous. Jeremy plays the Homestar Runner Halloween Hide n’ Seek point-and-click game, and then finally gets his shot at Homeworld Mobile. We observe that PSVR2 gets a price and release date, and preside over the failures and difficulties of Halo Infiniteā€¦ but do its failings matter? We cover new releases and get through our news speedrun with special wishes for a new gaming chair!

This week, Dale and Jeremy go on a two-man mission into the dungeon and under the sea. Dale brings the Dungeons & Dragons small-scenario puzzle/strategy game Gloomhaven, and we discuss its relative merit and frustration. Jeremy tries and fails to be reeled in by The Fisherman: Fishing Planet, and instead decides to get weird with Ace of Seafood. We hit all the freebies and subscription benefits for November, and look at Embracer shutting down studios and EA bringing up 3 Marvel games. We throw it into high gear for the news speedrun and come out the other side in exactly 30 minutes!

This week, LeGrande and Jeremy bring the heat with all the video game stuff you need this week. LeGrande gives us his oversight of Overwatch 2, and whether it’s worthy to be called a sequel. Jeremy succumbs to the siren song of game music and plays Dandara: Trials of Fear, which puts a traversal spin on the Igavania genreā€¦ but does it have any ground to stand on? We cover the news of the week, as G4TV closes again and Sony launches its PlayStation Stars loyalty program. Plus, Bayonetta voice actress calls out Platinum Games. We finish strong (and fast) with our News Speedrun! Have a listen!

In this week’s episode we range musically across a number of games, game genres, and music genres. LeGrande continues his long tradition of kicking demon butts in hell with Metal Hellsinger. Jeremy senses something slightly askew but is charmed by No Straight Roads. Jerod enjoys possibly “the best strategy game ever” (his words) in the Steam Next Fest demo of Manor Lords (which is unfortunately not a medieval etiquette simulator). This week Google Stadia announces that it is closing IN SHAME. Sony describes their PC strategy for games going forward. New releases and news speedrun close us out for this week!

This week the team is lean and mean because there are leaks and lawyers and ceases and desists, and it’s just a jungle out there.

We let you in on those sweet and juicy leaks, hit some new releases (and new Destiny 2 guns dot com), and wrap things up with a nice tight speed run!
