It’s been over six months since the last show. Let’s catch up on some life things.
Episode 159 - Gaming in the pandemic
The world is being severely challenged right now in the midst of a pandemic. Not knowing when we are at the tail end, it's created uncertainty on when people can go back to work and when we can safely just be normal human beings again. The gaming industry is no less feeling this impact with conventions being postponed/cancelled, games being delayed indefinitely, and companies having to adopt work from home strategies. We analyze what this virus has done to impact this industry and what we can possibly expect the new normal to be.
On the game time segment, I am still grinding Assassin's Creed Odyssey hard with no end in sight. But Apex Legends and Tyranny are good alternate games to help take away that grind when needed.
Stay safe and healthy out there, friends!
Episode 158 - Sony says no more to E3, delays for everybody!
You go away for 2020 for a while and look what happens...
Sony is once again out for E3 2020. Is Sony making a mistake going into a big holiday console launch? Or is the real story the fizzling relevance that E3 itself seems to be becoming?
And then delays has shifted tons of key games that we thought we were playing a ton of in the first half of 2020. What does that means for these games' prospects and how will it stack as they move closer to new console launch windows?
All that and the games I played on my Twitch streams for your listening pleasure!

Episode 155 - Playstation 5, Blizzard feeling the heat, New York Comic Con
Loads on the plate this week! Sony officially announced Playstation 5 for next holidays and we get a little more detail on their plans for the system specs. Blizzard is also under fire for a recent suspension of a Hearthstone player over his recent Hong Kong protests during a tournament. We look into what this could mean for their desires to work in the Chinese market as well as how that will affect their upcoming Blizzcon.
And lastly, I share my adventures at New York Comic Con last week - including a deep hands-on with the new Avengers game from Square Enix. Did it alleviate a lot of my concerns about its showcase at E3 this year?
