With E3 just a week away, the leaks and reveals are happening in bunches. First, we talk the new Death Stranding trailer which was accompanied by a release date in November 2019. How surprised are we that the highly anticipated game by Hideo Kojima is coming out this year? We also talk about the trailer itself and whether it tells us more about the story.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare was officially announced, and we discuss the reveal trailer as well as the feelings by some that the game will be controversial because of the realism and some specific moments within the campaign. Where should the line be in video games? Also, it was accidentally confirmed that Square Enix will be talking about the new Avengers game during their briefing. We talk about a couple of the details we got on the game, and whether it sounds like something we want.
Ubisoft is rumored to be revealing a subscription service during their E3 briefing this year - is some of the pushback against this trend within the gaming community valid? Or is more choice a good thing? Finally, Super Mario Maker 2 won't allow friends to play against each other through a play a friend feature. We discuss how Nintendo once again misses the mark when they should have had an easy slam dunk.
