To celebrate, we had some of our favorite listeners call in and ask us their questions directly, which was an amazingly good time! Thanks to Vinny, Kevin, Ryan, Vicky, Chalupa Dios, Josh and Carter!

We also want to thank every single one of you that listen every week, that send in questions, that talk to us on Facebook, Twitter and Discord, that game with us and that tell your friends to listen. Without all of you awesome people this podcast would just be three geeks talking into microphones, but with you, it's an amazing community.

Past Episodes

Extra Life was this weekend and we played a ton of games...and raised $2,310 for the kids!

Cliff got his Xbox One X (and it's pretty cool) but Adam is still waiting for his. GTA 5 has sold a ton of copies, but PUBG isn't doing badly either. The mobile version of FF15 is coming out and we have pricing, we talk about the highlights from Blizzcon, we talk about some sad news in the industry, Take Two doubles down on microtransactions and Nintendo confirms that the Breath of the Wild expansion is still coming out this year!

We answer a question from Vinny and dig into all of the amazing games that are going on sale on Black Friday!

Paris Games Week kicked off on Monday with the announcement of Spelunky 2 & Guacamelee 2, plus a bunch of AAA, indie and PSVR games. We also talk about how violent a couple of the trailers at PGW are and if that is a problem, GameStop launches a rental service, the Kinect is put out to pasture and the Xbox One X will natively support 1440p resolutions.

We also answer some great questions, talk about a ton of cheap and free games and dip into troll corner!

Cliff is on vacation so Vicky is back! Also, Cliff writes the podcast summary, so he's really not sure what happened on this week's episode!

* Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon Last for 3DS
* New 3DS XL SNES Edition Nov 27
* PokeBall 2DS XL Nov 3
* Switch 4.0 Update

* XBOX backward compatibility on XBOX ONE
* The End of Lego Dimensions

Lots of news and lots of questions this week!

We start off with the sheer number of games being released between now and the end of the year and it's crazy! Also, Phil Spencer doesn't believe in paying for exclusive content but apparently does believe that they should completely redesign the Xbox Dashboard once every four months like they did with the Fall Update. IGN buys Humble Bundle and we are pretty sure that's a good thing but are being a bit cautious, Rocket League Halloween kicks off and finally someone accepts candy corn as a form of payment and then we dive deep into microtransactions. Are they gambling? Are they good? Listen and find out!

Tons of great questions (many involving tacos), new cheap and free games and a bit of Troll Corner round out the episode!

This week we talk about the incredible size of Shadows of War on the PC and whether or not the loot boxes are ruining the game, we run through the Golden Joystick Award nominations, the SNES Classis has already been hacked and we do a strange experiment with the Red Dead Redemption II trailer.

We answer great questions from Vinnie and Josh and Hans gets to the bottom of the all-important sandwich question. We talk about this month's great Humble Bundle Monthly and Wildlands and Aftercharge are having free-to-play weekends starting tomorrow!

Now that that's out of the way, we talked about the new Assassin's Creed: Origins Education Mode where you can learn about Egypt in a combat-free environment, how the PSVR is getting a couple of minor upgrades, we wonder if anybody really cares about the SNES Classic and chat about the Overwatch Halloween update!

This week's questions were also top notch (find out what we are doing when we aren't playing games!) and get a ton of great games for cheap this week!

Epic giveth and Epic taketh away. Cross Play that is, which was live briefly over the weekend in Epic's game Fortnite. Apparently, it's easy enough to enable that they did it "on accident". Trust me, we talk about it. Angrily.

We also dive into last week's Nintendo Direct, Sony's presentation at TGS and talk about Jump, which wants to become the Netflix of indie games. We also answer questions from Vinnie, Josh and Crawdad, talk about the latest Humble Bundle and talk about games journalism in Troll Corner!
