    Resident Evil gives us chills by how creepy Village feels and how weird Re:Verse looks in their recent Showcase. After replaying the Maiden demo a few times, we discuss Capcom’s plans for a successful 2021, the EU’s fines for companies that geo-block, and the big gaming investments of 2020.

    Lucasfilm re-invests in games so we share our excitement as Indiana Jones rides again and Ubisoft opens up the galaxy far, far away. Also worth speculating: new trademarks made by Square Enix, a very quick end-screen of upcoming Sony exclusive release dates, and some games you might not have heard of among Twitter’s biggest stats of 2020.

    It’s time to look ahead at the next three months of releases using a time-honored tradition of ridiculous breakfast food comparisons; a Q1 2021 preview with sprinkles and spreadable frosting. Also, Amazon reveals its list of the top 100 best-selling products from last year and we try to find something on it to analyze that isn't a gift card or a game exclusive to Switch.

GT might be dead, but the fire is still burning and brighter than ever!

If you enjoyed the old GT-time, you know what to expect.

If you are new, this is a thoughtful, light hearted and fun weekly discussion about video games and the industry in general.

Now, place your bets...
