The Inner Gamer,

263: Animal Crossing, The Last of Us Part 2 and Quarterly Games Roundup

April 07, 2020

Animal Crossing: New Horizons has arrived during the midst of a pandemic. It’s a game that brings some joy into this crazy time we’re living in right now. Animal Crossing: New Horizons takes us to an island paradise where we grow from a tent to owning a multi-room house full of all sorts of items we’ve crafted. It’s a blast to play with a big loop that keeps you coming back for more.

In our news, The Last of Us Part 2 has been delayed due to Coronavirus, Quakecon 2020 was canceled and Gearbox employees got less bonus money than they were promised and it seems something is amiss. In a different situation, WHO is now recommending people stay inside and play video games as part of their campaign #StayApartTogether.

It’s been a whole quarter of games this year and we talk about all the best games from January through March. Some we’ve played, others we haven’t and we talk about the impact they’ve had thus far.

Special thanks to Crazzie Pro Gear. They provided us with some incredible pro-level backbacks for carrying our computer equipment to all our events. If you want a bag yourself, head over to their website to purchase one! A portion of the proceeds go to support The Inner Gamer.
