S02E17: ‘Two Man Crew’ Live from the Midwest

With Jake out on assignment at Boston Comic Con, the other guys have taken over! A new segment has been formed (not really) with “Mike’s Switch Corner” as he spent time with Splatoon 2, Mighty Gunvolt Burst, and Slime-San. Ben has reached the end of The Witcher 3’s campaign, but before starting the expansions is returning to Breath of the Wild.

Announcements are plenty this week as Dragon Quest Builders 2, Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night, and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night have been revealed. We also get a release date for the upcoming Horizon Zero Dawn expansion, The Frozen Wilds; new (sort of) maps, emotes, and balance changes coming to Friday the 13th; a sizable update comes to No Man’s Sky; and we reveal the darkest timeline as loot boxes and microtransactions are coming to Middle Earth: Shadow of War.

For our Top 5 this week, we decide on our favorite DLCs and/or expansions!

S02E16: SNES Classic: John Cena FFXV Regalia Guardian Edition

We’ve been playing some betas! Ben and Mike give their thoughts on the zombie mess that is Dead Alliance, as well as how much has changed since last year in the NHL ’18 beta. Jake has finished the story in Final Fantasy XII, but is far from done with the game. Mike is a few hours into Sundered, but likes what he has seen so far. Ben has the eternal struggle of trying to play both Witcher 3 and Breath of the Wild at the same time.

BioWare Montreal, developer of Mass Effect: Andromeda, has merged with other Montreal studio EA Motiv, further putting the future of the Mass Effect franchise in turmoil. SNES Classics were put up for pre-order, then quickly removed, but it didn’t stop both Walmart and Nintendo from looking foolish. Destiny 2 has now a PC beta date, as well as a special controller, exclusive to Europe and Australia (don’t worry, you aren’t missing out). The future of Minecraft on the PS4 is murky, Overwatch League salaries are revealed, WWE 2K18 reveals their collector’s edition, an update on multiplayer in Stardew Valley, and a Final Fantasy vehicle is coming to Forza Horizon 3?

For our Top 5, we pick our favorite modes of transportation in games!
