Welcome to Episode 173 of the Gamers In Beta podcast. This week we have a longer than usual show as we discuss new releases like Gears of War 4 and Battlefield 1. We also talk about Rockstar Games teasing us with their tweets about Red Dead Redemption, our thoughts on the Star Wars Rogue One trailer, and is it too late for Activision to release a Skylanders cartoon, even if star studded.

Our interview this week is with Michelle and James Silva of Ska Studios. They’re the devs behind games like Charlie Murder, Dishwasher Vampire games, and most recently Salt & Sanctuary.
