S03E17: God of Boy

Oh my God of War it is finally here, but first Mike takes us back in time (for better or worse) to talk about Dead Rising 4 and God of War 3. Ben and Jake have finished Far Cry 5 (and get spoilery about it), then went right into God of War.

News gives us the free Playstation Plus games for May, a great Playstation Humble Bundle deal, the demo for Detroit: Become Human, a release date for Wolfenstein 2 on the Nintendo Switch, H1Z1 coming to PS4 next month, and Belgium announcing loot boxes are now illegal in games.

Instead of a Top 5 this week, we talk about the NFL draft!

S03E16: Billy Mitchell is a Fraud!

Jake has been hiding a deep, dark secret from all of us…he marathoned the entire Yakuza series in the past two weeks in order to be caught up for Yakuza 6. In the meantime he and Ben put a lot of time into Far Cry 5 with mixed results, and Mike is nearing the end of Dead Rising 4, having had an enjoyable experience, yet wanting more from the game.

News comes from SEGA that a Genesis Mini is coming out this year, along with Genesis titles coming to the Nintendo Switch this summer, and the re-release of Shenmue 1 and 2. Dark Souls gets delayed for the Nintendo Switch, Monster Hunter: World has another new content update, Playstation Plus users can now get a Spotify discount, and the fall of the once great(?) Billy Mitchell.

Our Top 5 this week is our favorite movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

S03E15: Don’t Sell Loot Boxes in South Korea

Instead of a Top 5 this week, we take a look at Game Informer’s Top 300 Games of All-Time and spend an excessive amount of time ripping it to shreds.
