S02E33: Assassin’s Creed Origins is Really Good

Now we have all finished Assassin’s Creed: Origins and spend a lot of time talking about how great it is, along with what we hope/expect for the future of the franchise. We did find time to play some other games too, including Call of Duty: WWII (Boo!), and Star Wars Battlefront 2 (Yay!)

News is somewhat of a downer again this week as Marvel Heroes has completely shut down much earlier than expected, along with the announcement of the Demon’s Souls servers shutting down in early 2018, but on a positive note we finally have a release date for Gang Beasts on PS4, and the PS+ games for December have been announced!

Instead of a Top 5 this week, we take a look back at all the releases of 2017 and start the fun but painful task of assembling our Top 10 games of the year.

S02E32: Happy Thanksgiving!

We played a lot of games this week, including Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Golf Story, Madden 18, Warframe, and more!

News was light other than new content coming to Gran Turismo Sport, another update on the upcoming Destiny 2 expansion, and the ongoing controversy that is loot boxes in games.

Instead of a Top 5 this week, we lay out our potential Black Friday hauls!

(Apologies for the short and sweet description, turkey waits for no one!)

S02E31: Video Games Don’t Stop For Sickness!

Some of us may be sick, but that won’t stop us playing games! We all continue along with Assassin’s Creed: Origins, Ben and Mike have a bumpy road with COD: WWII, and Jake tests the waters of the new Warframe expansion.

In news, EA has a tough week with the Battlefront 2 loot box controversy but also with the purchase of Respawn Entertainment, GameStop “pauses” their new rental program, Disney shuts down Marvel Heroes, Bungie reveals some more of the upcoming Destiny 2 expansion, and Sony announces a new bundle for the PSVR.

Instead of a Top 5 this week, we go through the Game Awards nominees and give our predictions!

S02E30: Boots on the Ground!!

It happened, we bought Call of Duty: WWII. No reports on the campaign front, but minus some server issues, both Ben and Mike are enjoying the multiplayer. Ben has also spending more and more time in Assassin’s Creed: Origins, seeing that the time off has definitely made a difference. Jake has finished The Stick of Truth and has The Fractured But Whole on deck, but also continues to play through Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen.

Most of the news this week comes out of Blizzcon, with new content coming to Overwatch and World of Warcraft, along with Starcraft 2 going free-to-play, COD:WWII has another hugely successful launch, Sony Rewards now allows you to earn points for unlocking trophies, and Telltale lays off a large amount of their workforce.

For the Top 5 we pick our favorite wrestlers!
