Gears 5 has released, and it's actually really good! We talk about how important it was for Xbox to score a win with a first party game this fall, and we talk about the campaign and multiplayer modes in Gears 5 - which are awesome and which are not? Borderlands 3 has released, as well as NHL 20. We talk about our experiences with both, and (surprise!) how at least one of us likes one of them a lot more than they thought they would. Why is each game worth your time and money? Listen to find out!

We all got a chance to play the new Blair Witch game from Bloober Team, and we're happy to share our thoughts on it in this week's episode. We discuss how the development team built on the elements used in Layers of Fear to tell a story that is true to the Blair Witch world and provides a creepy experience for players. Gears 5 is out now for those with Game Pass Ultimate, and the reviews so far have been very good for the campaign.

We also discuss where you can get the announcements, and when the biggest shows of Gamescom are. A new Need For Speed was announced, and we're a little bit split on it.

This week, we discuss Ninja moving to Mixer, along with what we like about the Mixer platform. Could we see more content creators moving over to Mixer in the near future?

What games have we played that have perma death? 343 had some news about Halo Infinite this week, as they talked about how the new game will perform on the Xbox One X vs the new Scarlett console.

This week, we discuss the announcement of the Nintendo Switch Lite, coming this September day and date with Link's Awakening. How will this console that is handheld only perform when it is launched? Will it still be successful in a year? Sean Murray from Hello Games spoke this week about how developers and publishers like Microsoft, Bethesda, and Electronic Arts should handle rocky launches of online focused games. He draws upon his own experiences with the launch of No Man's Sky, but is he right in saying that publishers and developers should engage with the fanbase less? Amazon Games is developing a free-to-play Lord of the Rings MMO - are we excited for it? Also, Xbox Germany may have accidentally revealed that the Final Fantasy VII remake is coming to Xbox too, and everyone everywhere is denying it. Does that mean it's more likely to be true?

Fantastic Podcast! This weekly gaming podcast has stole me completely from IGN Unlocked. The three hosts all have vastly different personalities, and the end result is a surprisingly well-put experience. The chemistry is as smooth as butter, and the community is like one large family.

Super Lucky's Tale is a really good Microsoft exclusive. it's an amazing platformer that harkens back to games like Banjo Kazooie and Spyro. just my opinion though lol

Regarding your discussion about Apex Legends. There's not really a lot of quality BR games for consoles. Fortnite and Blackout, that's it. H1Z1 is pure garbage so Apex is actually NEEDED on console. PC is a different story though...

did you guys even finish playing Fallout 76? Sounds like your just listening to all the negative comments other people are making. if you put actual time into the game you would see its not nearly as bad as people are making it sound its actually a very good start for what could be a masterpiece in the future...
