S02E23: Destiny 2: A Top 5 TV Show

We are in week two of Destiny 2-a-palooza, and we have made it to the end of the raid (but have not finished it)! In between horrible Crucible matches, Ben has found the time to finish FFXII, Mike has started Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, and Jake continues to chip away at Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Lots of announcements between the Nintendo Direct and Tokyo Game Show: Monster Hunter World has a (very soon) release date, FFIX was announced and released for PS4, Dragon’s Crown Pro was revealed, Zone of the Enders is getting a remaster and VR support, Picross S is coming to Switch, Super Mario Odyssey has a Switch bundle, both Doom and Wolfenstein: The New Colossus are releasing on Switch, and lots of new content coming for Rocket League in the Autumn Update!

For our Top 5, we take a deep dive and talk about our favorite TV shows!

S02E22: Over Half Of This Show Is Destiny 2

Destiny 2 is here and we talk about it, a lot, seriously a lot.

Surprisingly news did happen this past week, like a re-release of LA Noire, Season 5 rewards for Rocket League, Bruce Straley leaving Naughty Dog, and Nintendo’s Switch app is less bad now!

For our Top 5, we pick our favorite weapons from the first Destiny!

S02E20: Talking About Golf, Thinking About Destiny

With the release of Destiny 2 upon us and thus doing a short version of the show so we can play more of it, we still find time for all of us to show our love for Everybody’s Golf, Jake gets some time in Rainbow Six: Siege with the latest update, and Ben continues his journey in Final Fantasy XII.

News is also short and sweet with the announcement of Dead Rising 4 coming to the PS4 this December, a new Jackbox Party Pack is coming in the future, and more versions of the DualShock 4 are coming this fall.

Our Top 5 was cut for time, but we will be picking our favorite controllers next week!

S02E19: A $200 Bioshock Statue (Game Also Included)

In preparation for the upcoming gaming overload, Ben has taken it upon himself to become addicted to FFXII all over again, Jake gets ready for a new Rainbow Six: Siege update, and Mike plays another few hundred games of Rocket League.

Microsoft announces a “Project Scorpio” edition of the upcoming Xbox One X, along with two new bundles for the Xbox One S; SNES Classic preorders came in the night and went even faster than the ones for the NES Classic, sadly none of us are surprised; Fear Effect is getting a remaster to the delight of our teenage selves; a new IP out of THQ Nordic leaves us impressed; there will be a new Jurassic Park game, but sadly it’s not what you were expecting it to be; The Crew 2 gets a release date as well as two additional versions of the game; Bioshock turns 10 and celebrates with an expensive statue; and Injustice 2 shocks the world with a very unique fighter coming soon.

With our Top 5, we select our most anticipated games for the rest of 2017!

S02E18: James Harden Has a Great Beard

Jake is back and so is the Demo Team! This time, Ben and Mike have checked out the NBA Live ’18 beta, and both come back with surprisingly positive reviews! Jake started up the new Batman (Telltale) game, Ben is getting lost throughout Hyrule in Breath of the Wild, and Mike’s Rocket League addiction only becomes stronger.

Overwatch has brought standard Deathmatch modes to the game to all of our surprise, but still won’t convince us to start playing again. Tempest is getting a reboot, but Mike seems to be one of the few actually excited for the game. The substantial ‘Atlas Rises’ update for No Man’s Sky has been detailed, and has rekindled all of our interest in returning to the game. Humble Bundle teams up with 2K Games to give us a rare Playstation-centered bundle that is certainly worth checking out. Finally, Amazon Prime owners get the shaft once again as the 20% discount on games will now only be offered on pre-orders.

Our Top 5 this week takes on our favorite sports game franchises!

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!
