The gang kicks off the month of August with a brand new episode of The Gaming Outsider podcast with returning guest Chris Owens.
News this week includes Nintendo locking major content behind Metroid Amiibos, Rock Band Blitz bowing out and a new 2DS bundle heading to stores. Games we discuss this week are Zen Studio’s Infinite Minigolf, Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds, the Lawbreakers beta and Crash Bandicoot: N-Sane Trilogy. Our community topic centers around nostalgia and corporations trying to utilize it in order to continuously drain our wallets. Also, Scott interviews Mel Kirk from Zen Studios where he discusses the upcoming Pinball FX3 and the newly released Infinite Minigolf.
