Christmas Wishes, DropMix & Halo Wars 2 | Ep.175

We’re celebrating Christmas this week by discussing what gaming goodies we hope Santa drops under our tree this year. Will Zach get that Nintendo Switch he’s hoping for? Will Josh get that Xbox One X that he’s struggling to justify buying on his own? Will Santa bring Scott another Wii U for his collection that he’ll never touch? We also reach out to our community to see what they’re wish lists are as well.

In gaming news this week, we discuss the success of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One and our thoughts on the creator’s recent comments about copycats. We also dive into the recent Cuphead clone that launched on iOS and the return of Catherine on current gen consoles.

Games we discuss this week are as follows:

  • DropMix
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (Nintendo Switch)
  • A Hat in Time (Xbox One)
  • Bridge Constructor: Portal
  • Halo Wars 2

Grab the episode now via iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play Music, Spotify, iHeartMusic and more.
