Episode 128 - Microsoft Might Acquire Obsidian, Project xCloud Announced and Name Changes on PSN
This week, we discuss the rumor that Microsoft is about to acquire Obsidian Entertainment. Does this move fill major gaps in Xbox's portfolio? We discuss our favorite Obsidian games and what the developer could bring to the Xbox family. Also, Microsoft announced that the beta for Project xCloud will begin sometime in 2019. What should we expect from the streaming service? Will streaming be the direction video game consoles go in the future? In other news, Sony announced that they are rolling out the beta for PSN users to change their PSN name. We discuss the price point for changing your PSN name, why it needs a beta, and whether we think it is overall a good offering by PlayStation. Finally, Sony also confirmed what we already knew - they are developing a next-gen console right now. We talk next-gen and what the biggest upgrades might be. Also mixed in is some talk about Forza Horizon 4 and our super early thoughts on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. We also detail all the newest releases, and answer community questions in our Fan Mail segment, and give the second clue in our biggest giveaway ever!

Episode 127 - Forza Horizon 4 Impressions and a Team Bans Fortnite
This week, we start off by giving our early impressions on the newly released Forza Horizon 4 - does it live up to our hopes and expectations? We discuss what we've played so far, along with some of our favorite features in the game. In news, the author of The Witcher is demanding $16 million from CD Projekt Red. We talk about whether the studio should pay the author more than he originally received for the rights to the franchise. A professional sports team has banned Fortnite and gaming in general from road trips in favor of team bonding activities. Can't Fortnite be a team bonding activity too? We discuss the changing relationship between sports and gaming, and whether we think this decision is fair or an overreaction. Also, Telltale has made further personnel decisions, Toys R Us might still be alive, and PlayStation players might actually be able to change their PSN names soon - for real this time! We also detail all the newest releases, and answer community questions in our Fan Mail segment, along giving away the first clue in our biggest giveaway ever!

Episode 126 - Sony Reverses on Cross Play and Xbox Announces Mouse and Keyboard Support
This week, we start off with a major announcement regarding our holiday giveaways for 2018 - including the biggest giveaway we've ever had! The contest starts next week so be sure to listen to the intro for all the details! Sony finally reversed its policy on cross play for the PS4, and we discuss how much of a factor Fortnite was in this decision. Did Sony do this because they wanted to, or did they finally give in to pressure from fans and the PR machine? Which other games would we like to see cross play available for in the future? Microsoft had another Inside Xbox this week, and the focus was on the upcoming Forza Horizon 4. How excited are we for the game? Did the Bond Car Pack or the Halo Showcase Event interest us at all? In addition, Phil Spencer stopped by on the broadcast to tell Major Nelson about mouse and keyboard support coming to the Xbox One, and we discuss the implications of that announcement too. Telltale has pulled The Walking Dead: The Final Season's Season Pass from stores, Red Dead Redemption 2 will offer DLC to PlayStation 30 days before Xbox, and we admit that Graham was right about Nintendo Switch Online's cloud saves. Finally, we discuss the announced X0 and accompanying Fan Fest Xbox is holding in Mexico City this fall. We also detail all the newest releases, and answer community questions in our Fan Mail segment, along with conducting our giveaway for September!

Episode 124 - The Future of Telltale and the PlayStation Classic is Announced
This week, we discuss the newly announced PlayStation Classic console - is it something we wanted? We discuss the games we know are on it, as well as the price point. Also, how much are they capitalizing off of Nintendo's success with classic consoles in both opportunity and name? In other news, Telltale announced a massive change in their business structure and strategy - we talk about what might have led to this as well as what kind of safety net should be in place for developers in the gaming industry. Microsoft announced that Halo Infinite will have microtransactions, and we talk about whether this was just an inevitability and what kind of microtransactions we're OK with. Red Dead Redemption 2 will have a first-person mode - are any of us interested? Finally, there was great news for both Rocket League and Spider-Man this week, and we discuss the success both achieved. We detail all of the biggest releases for the coming week, as well as answer fan questions in our fan mail segment.

Mouse and keyboard on consoles is the way to go controllers are such a rudementery clunky brick, you talk about separating M&K vs controller on fps games hate to tell you almost all the high rollers on those games are rocking a Zim4 you just don't know it you just assumes they are using a controler.. I can always tell who is using one and about 90% of those I message confirm they are or some other type of M&K imulater, I came from PC gaming and found the controller just a horrible experience and took away the fun of games. ALL HAIL XIM4!
