The Gamers’ Inn is a weekly podcast focused on all things video games! Each week Jocelyn and Ryan discuss what they’re playing, go over industry related news, and cover topics that have peaked their interest.
TGI 439 – Genshin Makes an Impact
After the Thanksgiving long weekend, Jocelyn and Ryan return to discuss their long weekend and their daily return to Animal Crossing during the Halloween event. Jocelyn backed that Frostpunk board game Kickstarter. Ryan followed the Discord's passion for Genshin Impact and dove into the free-to-play BOTW-like. Moving into the news, Microsoft has a plan to bring xCloud to iOS, Sony details backwards compatibility on PS5, Amazon pulls the plug on Crucible, and TMNT is coming to SMITE in November.
TGI 438 – Halloween Island Time
Jocelyn and Ryan return to their Animal Crossing island, and after consoling their distraught villagers, they start decorating for HALLOWEEN! Continuing the Nintendo trend, both inn keepers have been running through Super Mario Bros. 35, and offer some pointers to new players. Finally, in what we're playing, Ryan picked up the Super Mario LEGO Starter Pack and has been enjoying it with Kayden! In the news, Insomniac does a face swap on Peter Parker on the PS5, Blizzard delays World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and dates the expansion pre-patch, and Minecraft is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate next week.
TGI 437 – Limited Time Marios
Ryan spends some more time with Super Mario 3D All-Stars. He also finds some Netflix time to check out High Score, a documentary series chronicling the 80's and 90's of the video game industry. Once again we have a good helping of news from the last week. Mike Morhaime is back with Dreamhaven. Microsoft announced pricing for the Series S/X storage expansion. Among Us developer scraps sequel to focus on original game. Turns out CD Projekt RED will need to do mandatory crunch on Cyberpunk 2077 after all. And finally, Amazon announces Luna, a new game streaming service that will directly compete with Google Stadia and Microsoft xCloud.
TGI 436 – Reassemble for a Patch
Ryan has closing thoughts on Marvel's Avengers (at least until there is a good patch or more hero content). Ryan also got a chance to boot up Super Mario 3D All-Stars, which is a collection of three great games that haven't aged particularly well. We'll have more thoughts on the collection next episode! Jocelyn shares her tales from sorting out the Imposters in Among Us. In the news, Sony makes it official and raises the prices on some next generation games, the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition may be tough to come by at launch, and Microsoft is buying ZeniMax (Bethesda, Arkane, ID, and MORE) for 7.5 BILLION DOLLARS.
TGI 435 – Revisiting for a Re-Reckoning
We've had some more time with the remaster of a TGI Year 1 favourite, Kingdoms of Amalur Reckoning. Afterwards, we jump into most of the next generation console news from the past week. This includes a confirmation of the Xbox Series X pricing, with Xbox All Access moving to 12 additional countries. PlayStation 5 had a huge news dump (both on stream and off), with pricing, release date, launch games, and much MUCH more!
TGI 434 – Disc-less Consoles
Ryan returns with a tale of Paper Mario and the Wii U, his drop into Fall Guys, and reluctant (but hopeful) entry into Avengers post beta phase. In the news we chat about the leak and confirmation of the Xbox Series S from Microsoft, Nintendo's huge (and weird) celebration for the 35th anniversary of Super Mario, and Nintendo's surprise announcement of a Breath of the Wild prequel using the Hyrule Warriors gameplay style.

1/2 of a good show
Jocelyn is great, Ryan is not. Every show without Jocelyn is just chock full of complaining, mispronunciations, and Misinformation. In just the most recent episode he kept butchering saying Gadgetzan, complained about PVE content in a multiplayer only shooter, predicted something to be announced at Blizzcon which is ALREADY OUT, gave out misinformation saying the heroic hearthstone brawl can only be played once, and complained about loot boxes for an hour. Ugh.
Getting hard to stay with em.
Starting a new drinking game. Every time Jocelyn asks Ryan’s opinion on something then talks over his reply, take a shot. Don’t get me wrong. I think they make a great podcast host team. I’m not being a fan of one host over the other. It can go both ways. The one sided conversation is really starting to get bad. It wouldn’t be so bad if the conversation was being redirected back to the original topic. When you interrupt someone and finish what the other person was going to say and you go on a ten minute rant in another direction. It gets hard to fallow. I have been a big fan of many of your shows for a long time. But I believe I’m reaching the end of my subs due to this. Good luck in the future.
Who are you kidding? This show is an awesome time!
As always Joce and crew deliver a fun an entertaining show! Keep up the awesome work.
