Joce and Ryan delay their recording this week to chat all about The Game Awards 2020! There were plenty of game announcements to get excited about, including creepy Vin Diesel AND a new Mass Effect. Also Perfect Dark is back! Some fun surprises, some cool indie games, and a few awards given out as well. Tune in for our GOTY episode in just a few weeks, until then happy gaming!
Jocelyn’s Xbox Series X was not a mirage (or a box filled with rocks), so she was able to jump into Assassin’s Creed Valhalla on the next gen system. We talk a whole bunch about the new viking adventure, so get your raiding axes ready. Afterwards, we wrap up our chats on Bugsnax, and dip our toes into Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity and Jackbox Games Trivia Murder Party 2.
Jocelyn was able to get her Xbox Series X order in, but the quest was not an easy one, and some have her convinced it’s an empty box? We shall see next week! While Joce waits for her Xbox, she has started her adventures in the Shadowlands for the new World of Warcraft expansion. Ryan promises to join her soon, but has been busy with Miles Morales and Bugsnax. That’s right, we’re talking about MORE Bugsnax! (Joce’s Note: BUNGER, BUNGER, BUNGER, BUNGER)
We continue the conversation of not having next generation consoles, and our moments of weakness in trying to break from the PLAN. As promised, Ryan has been playing Spider-Man Miles Morales and takes some time to discuss his thoughts on why the game is a REALLY good cross generation game (be sure to check out IGN’s Performance Review for Miles Morales). Jocelyn is talking about Bugsnax, because she has played Bugsnax. Light news week, what with the launch of TWO new consoles, but we take some time to discuss the latest Capcom leaks.
With our official Extra Life Game Day behind us, we go over the successes from the day where we managed to raise $4500 to date as a team! We relive our experiences in Phasmophobia thanks the lovely community helping us hit our $1500 raised for each of us. Then we calm things down with a discussion of our time in Raft. In the news, we get hopeful about the Legendary Edition of the Mass Effect Trilogy, but still wary about the promise of Bioware taking another stab at the franchise with a new game. Finally, we chat about our FOMO and the next generation of consoles launching this week.
