The October 27th Gaming Onslaught: How We’re Handling It

Friday, October 27th, is arguably the biggest day for video game releases in 2017 (with February 28th being close second). Super Mario Odyssey, Assassin’s Creed: Origins and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus all drop on the same day. These are three of the most anticipated sequels this year and the wallets of gamers will be crying out in pain. Oh, and then there’s Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back as well…

The Gaming Outsider will be covering all three games on our November 1st episode next week. In order to get the best coverage, we’re splitting all three games up between hosts.

  • Scott will be taking on Assassin’s Creed: Origins
  • Josh will be covering Super Mario Odyssey
  • Zach will be reviewing Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus

We will be sharing our thoughts and opinions on social media in the meantime as well.

Head over to our Twitter page, our ever-expanding Facebook group, or use the comments below and let us know which of these three games you’ll be picking up on Friday.

Happy gaming!
