Recorded on Thursday, October 5, 2017.
Happy Games-tober, fellow gamers! It’s a great time of the year to be a fan of video games.
First up, we’re chatting about Shadow of War, including its mobile counterpart. This promising sequel to Shadow of Mordor looks to improve on a successful system, but there is some scrutiny from the community regarding microtransactions.
Next, our resident Assassin’s Creed fan, Kurt dishes on the latest installment, Assassin’s Creed Origins.
The Star Wars Battlefront 2 beta is live and rolling, so we’re diving into our experience so far. We have comments on the party system, gunplay, star cards, and customization.
Of course, Destiny weasels her way onto this episode, as the faction rally comes to a close and Iron Banner approaches. We have some thoughts on events, like the faction rally and potential of festival of the lost.
