September 19, 2017

This week was full of great news. Apple announced their new iPhone’s which resulted in more details on ARKit such as a cool augmented reality game called The Machines. They also announced an Apple exclusive from thatgamecompany called “Sky.” We also had the Nintendo Direct which revealed the name for Kirby as Kirby Star Allies. We also have Doom and Wolfenstein 2 coming to the Switch and more.

In our games segment, we talk more on Destiny 2 such as strikes, adventures and more. We also get our hands on the upcoming Square Enix game, Project Octopath Traveler. It’s a 2D-HD game with a unique art style.

In our discussion, we talk about what happens when a game doesn’t deliver for a franchise we so adore. Many franchises have done this to us such as Halo, Mass Effect, Assassin’s Creed and more. How do we deal with this? How does it even happen?
