There are so many games coming to Game Pass over the next two years it makes me wonder why would you even buy games anymore? I mean, it’s kinda hyperbolic, but I honestly think you could never buy a game again and be happy. Anyway, that is just one takeaway from X019, but there was also so much more!

Other news this week:

  • Bioware is working on another Mass Effect game
  • Bioware is also apparently still working on Anthem
  • Google Stadia is out and apparently it’s…ok
  • The Game Awards have been announced
  • There is a new Half Life in development (and no, it’s not HL3)
  • You aren’t going to believe this Pokemon bug

What We Are Playing

Colby: Jedi Fallen Order, Remnant: From the Ashes, Mahjong Stories: Vampire Romance
Cliff: Jedi Fallen Order, Remnant: From the Ashes, Afterparty
Dylan: Pokemon


DA VINSTER (Vinny): What are you most excited for that came out of X019?

Mister Polite: If you could choose which actor (male or female) to have a comeback in 2020, who would it be? I would like to see Rick Moranis again on the big screen. Going back and watching a lot of 80’s and 90’s shows, he was everywhere, and I would like to see him again.

Colby: What’s a Atari era game you’d like to reboot?

JoeColeslaw: In regards to in-game chat with public lobbies in video games, what are some of your pet peeves? Too much background noise? Not using it at all in a very team oriented mode? Nonsense and hateful speech should go without saying.

Prince of Pringles: Its draft season. Adam you’re representing Sony Playstation, Cliff you’re representing Xbox and Dylan is Nintendo. Each guy picks 5 characters. You can offer a trade after each guy has 5 characters. Will we see Mario riding a warthog in a halo crossover? Will Kratos have to save mushroom kingdom? Good luck boys.
