S03E19: Trilogy the Trilogy: A Trilogy

Video games are starting to hit the summer drought, as all there is to report on is Mike and Jake’s time in Burnout Paradise Remastered, along with Jake and Ben’s time in God of War.

News is also slowing down as we approach E3, with the only two stories being Thanos making a limited time cameo in Fortnite: Battle Royale, and Nintendo revealing more info and features about their upcoming online service for the Switch.

In our Top 5 this week, we select our favorite trilogies (with a lot of rules and caveats).

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

Wrestlemania 34 has come and gone, leaving all of us in its mediocre wake and with little time for games (except of course Fortnite: Battle Royale), Jake did manage to dive into the DLC for Nioh, as well as set a roadmap for some upcoming streams!

News brings us the announcement of the Spyro Reignited Trilogy and Divinity: Original Sin 2 on PS4, Sam Fisher returning in Ghost Recon: Wildlands, a release date for the Mega Man X Legacy Collection, multiplayer coming very soon to Stardew Valley, and the harsh reality of loot box fines 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.

S03E14: No Spiderman’s Sky

Wrestlemania and PAX East are upon us, but video games stop for no one! Mike has started the simple-but-fun Dead Rising 4, while Ben and Jake continue the liberation of Montana in Far Cry 5. We also still played a ton of Fortnite: Battle Royale.

In news, we get a release date for the PS4 exclusive Spiderman game, the reveal of the Red Faction Guerilla remaster, a second year of content for Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and No Man’s Sky coming to Xbox One along with an upcoming content update.
