When will Final Fantasy 16 be here? does Jeff Bridges talk funny? Will Monster Hunter the movie be any good? How can we tie together all of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s films? What exactly makes a good game, if it’s free-to-play “garbage” by default? All of these questions and many more will be answered… in some form. Join us and let your speculations be satiated!

Jerod joins us for a mid-week show to talk about the games we’ve been playing. And some of them are quite a throwback! First, Dale picked up that “limited time only” super Mario 3D All Stars for the Switch, and it turns out that Super Mario Sunshine wasn’t as bad as you all make it sound. Jerod dives into the world of French transmedia audio dramas adapted to video games with The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk The Amulet of Chaos. Jeremy returns to fight off the running dead with the Left 4 Dead 2: The Last Stand update.

LeGrande tried the Star Citizen free trial and finds it not to be worth his considerable expense.

This week’s news keeps things simple: just three blocks of news… chock-full of tons of delicious game bytes of news to chew thirty-two times before swallowing! This week we finally get the lowdown on the Xbox Series X and S, we catch up on the latest Epic v Apple developments, and then we check in with everyone else who thinks they’re making big news-moves this week. PlayStation 5 event? Well, that’s something. We have exactly one new release this week and one meme-themed Switch game, and we discuss our tolerance for “work” in video games.

On this Dreamcast Day, we hit the internet airwaves to opine about the video games that we played this week! LeGrande kicks us off in style with Marvel’s Spider-Man, and we appreciate the bold moves it made in 2018, some of which are still lacking today. Dale continues with the good-concept-but-needs-work Necromunda: Underhive Wars, and we ponder the final fate of Eschers, both MC and otherwise. Finally, Jeremy played Dead by Daylight and explores the “simple but subtle” gameplay.

Intro: “Negative View” – Marvel’s Spider-Man, by John Paesano
