Episode 179: Nintendo Labo, Doki Doki Literature Club & Backlog Blues

On this week’s episode of The Gaming Outsider podcast, Scott and Zach welcome back Eric Sandler from Relles Plays on YouTube to chat with us about everything going on in the gaming world.

News this week includes the exciting reveal of Nintendo Labo. It may be pricey cardboard, but listen as the guys give their two cents on this new product for the Nintendo Switch. Speaking of Nintendo, a new Direct launched last week that revealed a lot of awesome news for the Switch. NBA Jam and Fable may also make comebacks soon too.

Games we discuss this week are as follows:

  • Avernum: Escape from the Pit
  • Trails of Cold Steel 2
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 2
  • Doki Doki Literature Club
  • Baseball Riot
  • They Are Billions
  • Gorogoa
  • Destiny 2

Finally, we top it all off with our community topic that centers around our leftover backlogs from 2017. Which games are we struggling to play through before new titles drop? We read our community’s responses as well.
