This week: The state of State of Decay 2, the shutdown of Boss Key Productions, Rage 2 (who knew!), No Man's Sky, Battletech, Okami, Dead in Vinland, and...mobile games?
And to make sure you know we're back for reals, we definitely talk about Destiny and Overwatch. Again. A lot. Just like old times. Just like always.
Or: an episode in which we talk entirely about XCOM despite not actually talking about XCOM.
Y'know every time I write one of these episode summaries I'm always blown away by whatever episode number we're on, but how the heck have we made it to 79 of these? 79! I'm not even 79 years old! I don't think I've even seen 79 things in one place before.
Anyway, this week, Call of Duty and VR stuff run the headlines, and then Brian has a sit-down and tells all y'all about the games he played at PAX East. They're very good! Followed by Tom talking, again, as always, about Overwatch, forever. (It's very good.)
This week: Overwatch digs into the past for some new stuff, Boss Key Productions digs into the past for some new stuff, Ghost Recon: Wildlands digs into the past for some new stuff, and Brian digs into PAX for some news stuff.
Game releases! PUBG and Fortnite in yer pockets, Sea of Thieves, Far Cry 5, Ni No Kuni 2, and Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition. Also sprinting out of the spawn point this week: Brigitte, Destiny 2's "Go Fast" update, and a rad update on a game you've probably never heard about that, of course, makes Tom incredibly stupid happy.
HEY. We're gonna be at PAX East next week! Say hi if you see us, or hit us up if you'd like to hang! We're approachable as HECK.
This week: fuzzy games! Apparently.
We've got a bunch of announcements: Skyrim VR coming to PC, a confirmed Division sequel, Call of Duty: Black Opppps, H1Z1 4Free, Shadow of the Rise of the Dawn of the Planet of the Tomb Raider, and survival of the fittest in Darwin Project.
Writing descriptions for 75 episodes is hard, you guys. But holy heck, 75 episodes!! What a milestone! In fact, we're gonna celebrate that! Do you want a chance to win some free videogames?

Overwatch! Also Neverwinter Nights. And Overwatch! And Dawn of War III. And Overwatch! And...My Little Pony?
Sleeping Dogs, Kingdom Come, Game of Thrones and Underworld Ascendant fill the news block this week, with Brian telling tales of Monster Hunter World from a mysterious land beyond the world of PCs, and Tom talks of his deepest dives in the seas of Subnautica.
It's ANOTHER audio-only podcast this week as we work out continuing issues with Twitch, but never fear! We're still here!
