The Inner Gamer,

336: Battlefield 2042, Halo Infinite and 2021 Holiday Gift Guide

November 22, 2021

This week is heavily focused on multiplayer with our review of Battlefield 2042. Does it live up to the hype? We also talk about the surprise reveal of Halo Infinite’s multiplayer beta head of the full launch December 8th. Lastly, this week wouldn’t be complete without our review of Grand  Theft Auto The Trilogy Definitive Edition. Is it as bad as people say it is?

In the news, the Warner Bros. smash game we talked about last week is in fact real with the reveal of Multiversus. We also saw the reveal of a Dead by Daylight type game in the Dragon Ball Universe and Back 4 Blood reveals their full roadmap.

In our discussion, we have our holiday gift guide! Everyone chooses a few of their favorite picks and we close up with a few deals you won’t want to miss.

Check out our favorite video clips from the news every Thursday on our YouTube Channel.
