Happy Halloween from the Gamers In Beta Podcast!

On Episode 175, Sean returns to the show after being away for a few weeks. Listen as we discuss some of the leaked specs for the Nintendo Switch, the release of Titanfall 2, and Bethesda’s change of policy when it comes to handing out review copies for their games.

Also, this week we welcome Daniel from Dreadbit Games back to the podcast. Dreadbit previously released Ironcast on PC and consoles. On November 1, they’ll release Seraph on the PlayStation 4.

Games we’ve been playing are Gears4, Battlefield 1, ARK, The Flame in the Flood, Farming Simulator 17, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Sparcade, DOOM, and Pirate Pop Plus.
