Heck YEAH we used the same podcast title joke twice in a row! Welcome back! On this midweek episode LeGrande and Jeremy are hitting the new hotness AND a little of the old hotness in video games. We open with Warhammer Vermintide 2 and some of the improvements and updates Fat Shark have made to the L4D formula. Jeremy has been playing Streets of Rage 3, an opportunity to reminisce about the 90s and offer admonition regarding yoked kangaroos. Lastly, we’ve played some PUBG mobile. But is Jeremy’s first-shot chicken dinner well-earned, or has that tasty bird been served by bots??

The new week opens with the news of the old week! And so the cycle continues. And presiding over this transition, as ever, are your humble GameBytes Show hosts. We open with some severe spoilers to Star Wars: The Last Jedi. After about 7 minutes of that, we continue to the news of the week! BAFTA noms, TRU closings, Twitch records broken, and Little Luigi. We cover the new releases, and we discuss games that we have not played (but want to) and have avoided spoilers thus far.

This week we revisit Mario’s occupational crisis, the recent Nintendo Direct announcements, political meetings, Valve’s re-entry into actual games, The Division 2, and how you can play Grand Theft Auto 6 RIGHT NOW. Plus, we spend a lot of time talking about Fortnite and what’s happening in the “battle royale” genre these days (yes it’s probably a genre now).

It’s time for your weekly brain-dump of the news, new releases, and games discussion! That’s right, we’re selecting all the best stuff that we think is important this week and telling you just how it is! Politics and business, acquisitions, PS+ service changes, and oh yeah, a few actual video games! We hit the newest and best (?) game releases, and we discuss the first year of the Nintendo Switch.

In this mid-week show, we finally stretch the limits of Jeremy’s feeble memory as he tries to remember the games he’s been playing! He finally lands on a “duo” of games with an unlikely connection! First, Starfox Zero on the Wii U spreads its wings and goes into all-range mode as we explore what makes the game similar to and different from its predecessors. Next, he talks about the prototype version of Pixeljunk Monsters Duo, not yet released on mobile devices but sharing a development parentage, and also sharing praise this week. Dale pipes in with the desert level of New Super Mario Bros 2, and finally repels the alien threat in XCOM: Enemy Unknown… but he then returns to dabble in dark genetic manipulation in XCOM: Enemy Within.
