We jumped into an Early Access game this week called Risk of Rain 2. Published by Gearbox Publishing, this is the sequel to a side scrolling rogue-like shooter. Now it’s in full 3D and it’s incredibly fun! 4 player co-op has you picking a character and fighting through hordes of bad guys as you level up all the way to HAHAHAHAHAHAHA (yes that’s a level.) We also play A Fisherman’s Tale in Virtual Reality. It’s a really unique and innovative game within the VR space.
Blizzard screwed up again and released Warcraft 3 Reforged pretty broken. The graphics weren’t as good, we were missing ladders, modders give up their IP to Blizzard and more. Hear the full story here. We also talk about Atari opening video game hotels and Ninja getting $20-30 million to move from Twitch to Mixer.
Our discussion topic is all about what we want to see from the Switch this year. We know Animal Crossing is coming, but what else will we see? We predict everything from Breath of the Wild 2 all the way to Wave Race returning to Nintendo.
