288: Among Us, Remnant from the Ashes and Microsoft Buys Bethesda

September 29, 2020

This week we see what all the fuss is about with Among Us. This game has been taking over Twitch and we wanted to see what it as all about. It’s a 4-10 player game of deception among your friends. It’s a ton a fun and great to play during the quarantine. We also talk about Remnant: From the Ashes. Our crew revisits to see what’s new in this game in 2020.

In our news, Microsoft has acquired Bethesda and we explore what that means for the future of Microsoft and Xbox Game Pass. We also look at the bad launches of not just the PS5 last week for pre-orders, but the RTX 3080 and the Xbox Series X this week. We also look at former Blizzard exec’s starting a new company called Dreamhaven and Amazon launching a new streaming service called Luna.

In the discussion, we go through our quarterly games roundup from July through September. We have everything from Ghost of Tsushima to Spelunky 2 to cover in this lineup. Have a game we’re missing? Let us know which one and why you liked it!
