For the second week in a row, the podcast has had some technical issues. This time the problem was less, but there are still present. Part of the reason is that the mic is subpar, the other is that the PC it’s being recorded on has a damaged fan. That said, this week’s episode (and the unreleased episode) were really good. The unpublished one will be issued at some future date when we all need a break (maybe over the Christmas week.)

This week’s episode includes:

  • Assassin’s Creed 3 goes free, murders Ubisoft servers in the process
  • After Blizzard shutdown, legacy World of Warcraft server returns this month
  • Halo 5: Forge custom game browser is launching on PC this week
  • Report: Nintendo Switch will get GameCube Games

Let us know what your favorite 2016 game has been.

No, that’s not a clever pun. For whatever reason, the opening intro is missing from the file. It’s just not there – perhaps the recording software was late in starting.

Regardless, the crew discuss the Palmer Luckey scandal before moving head with a new segment, just to discuss random stuff they’ve seen that isn’t on the news docket.

Speaking of which, the news includes:

  • Beyond Good and Evil 2 is happening, original game free on PC next week
  • The Witcher 3 success “marred my books,” claims author
  • October has arrived, and the Nintendo NX has not
  • Fallout 4/Skyrim mods are back on for PlayStation 4, with one big caveat

All this and Listener Feedback!
