Catching you up with the video game news of the week is important to us, so we want to do it right. This week we’ve hand-picked the finest news for you, gathered from around the bounteous internet. We set the table with FF7 Remake’s commercial success, and then follow it up with other tasteful tidbits. System Shock steered by Tencent. G2A’s audit results in a payout. Amazon Game Studios has actually released a game. Pac-Man turns 40, and Windows MIDIs turn 30. Plus, we discuss the relative popularity of mainline Final Fantasy games. Bon apetit!

This week we kick off Jeremy’s new project of talking about games that are on free weekends or promotional periods! Legrande starts us off though, with a reminder that Terraria is pretty good (or IS it, Dale?) and Dale returns to the Warhammer well with an Age of Sigmar tabletop simulation in Warhammer Underworlds Online. Jeremy’s game of the week is The Golf Club 2019, and so we spend some time on the fundamentals.

WB. A new games podcast is upon us, and we’re keeping it to that very-standard 30-minute podcast using acronyms this time. Dale has been playing XCOM Chimera Squad and lays out a strong case for you to play it too. Jeremy has been a resident of Two-Point Hospital, fighting fake diseases with social distancing. We think you’ll be quite H with this 1.

We have returned with a vengeance! Or, at least with 10 minutes of pretttty good banter, if we do say so ourselves. This week we reunite to talk about news of the week in Fortnite, SEGA, Nintendo Online hacks, The Last of Us leaks, GeForce Now, and more. We cover the new releases and special gimmies (that’s what we call them now) and we discuss video game documentaries that we have known, and think you should know too.

In this episode we’re bringing out the big guns! And big swords! And big downloads! This week, LeGrande finally weighs in on Final Fantasy VII. Is it everything he hoped? Come on in, the anime is fine! Jeremy gets his articulated mech-hands on Into the Breach before it time-warps out of the Xbox Games Pass program. Dale has started in with The Elder Scrolls Online, and what he has to say is massive. Get it while the getting is good! (PS the getting is good forever)

In this week’s news show, we slurp at the drip-feed of PlayStation 5 news with the DualSense controller, chew on an “indefinite” game delay, and look at how Animal Crossing New Horizons is spilling into real life. We also cover new releases, a bunch of freebies and upates, and since remakes are grinding in the rumor mill, we discuss some notable “best-case” remakes in video games!

Intro: “Quick Man” – Mega Man: The Wily Wars

We’re here to play pranks and play video games. Or mostly play video games. And talk about playing video games. And you’re here to listen, right? Let’s get to it! This week LeGrande has donned the VR goggles and played Half-Life Alyx, and barely made it back with his face intact. Jeremy looks off into Animal Crossing New Horizons, and brings the guys some context and recommendations for time at home with family. Dale gets a taste for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and finds that it has improved some since his last go.

Intro: “Strider Battle” – Half Life Alyx, by Mike Morasky
Outro: “Island Tour (Rainy)” – Animal Crossing: New Horizons
