GMD Ep35: This Might Hurt Your Feelings

GMD Ep35The recent release of Blizzard’s new hero shooter Overwatch is the subject of discussion at the top of the show, as Alex relates the experience that her “internet friends” have had with the game thus far.

Following in the footsteps of the Sony Playstation Neo rumors discussed last week, this week’s news includes rumors of a similar upgrade in the pipeline for the Xbox One. This upcoming attempt by the major players to push console upgrades and add-ons spurs Ben to deliver a profanity-laced rant about how consoles add-ons almost always flop. Other news includes lukewarm early reviews for the upcoming Warcraft movie, a big delay for No Man’s Sky, and the newly released PC JRPG Setsuna.

This episode’s Top Three List of the Week has the team selecting the “top three ‘must play’ games that you’ve never played”. The show the winds down with another edition of What You Been Playin’ Bro? because Ben and Jared finally tried out the new Star Wars: Battlefront game together, and Alex randomly started playing 2014’s Tell Tale’s Game of Thrones.
