We use the power of science to fight the ghosty apocalypse in Research and Destroy. We also punch thugs in the face and do several minigames in Yakuza 3 Remastered. Predictions are validated, Game Fest is a thing, and there is some financial fallout from a large industry aquisition. New releases and the news speedrun! Grab a plate!

Game Bytes :: March 22, 2021 :: Versus Arizona

This week, GBS officially kicks off its rivalry against the great state of Arizona. We strike first at their weakest spot: their hockey team. How will they respond? In gaming, we hit some of our recent favorite spots like Elden Ring, Ultima Outlines, and No Man’s Sky, and we take a stroll through Paradise Killer to figure out some bizarro cosmology and murder. In game news, what’s old is new again and what’s online is offline with Gran Turismo. Fortnite uses prime time revenue for charity, and the founders of Sierra Online are getting back into the game again. Plus, new releases and speedrun news!
