The sequel nobody asked for turns out to be the game nobody needed to play.
This week we talk about the big games we stuck our hands into, chiefly Destiny 2 and Knack 2.
Also, Game of Thrones, Mario isn’t a plumber, and this podcast is haunted.

Dynasty Warriors, Nioh, Deception, and more join forces to smash up some anthro cats because of some reasons.

Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle is one of those game concepts that on paper simply should not work. Rabbids are essentially the late 2000’s equivalent of the Minions – screeching, vulgar, nondescript vehicles for fast-paced slapstick aimed at children.

Putting both into a turn based strategy RPG shooter setting together simply doesn’t sound like a good idea on paper.
Those paid mods that Bethesda said weren’t paid mods turned out to be paid mods and also worse than paid mods.
The Creation Club has gifted a bounty unto Fallout 4, and it looks like things are little too much like microtransactions and mods got welded together horrifically.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is the latest Early Access darling, but like Ark and Darkest Dungeon, it’s learning that such a status comes with caveats.
