Episode 165 | Shadow of War, A Hat in Time & Switch Ports

This week we welcome Twitch streamer Jeremy Paz to the show to discuss the latest in gaming news, what we’ve been playing and our weekly community topic.

News this week includes Nintendo possibly backing away from locked Amiibo content in their games and a heartfelt community trailer for Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice.

Games we discuss this week are as follows:

  • Middle Earth: Shadow of War
  • A Hat in Time
  • Culdcept Revolt
  • Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3
  • Earth Atlantis
  • SteamWorld Dig 2

Our community topic is centered around Nintendo Switch ports. Which indie games do we feel need to be added to the Switch library? How about AAA ports? We dig deep into our wants and desires for Nintendo’s little console and share our community’s thoughts as well.
