Direct Download to Episode 177

If you want a whole lot of gaming discussion, than Episode 177 is your jam. With returning guest Nick (aka GamesontheMind), we discuss topics such as the NES Classic, PlayStation 4 Pro, PlayStation VR, and the Dr. Strange movie.

Other newsworthy items mentioned are: Survival mode for The Division, should Respawn tell us what’s in the latest Titanfall 2 Patch, and Darkest Dungeon eclipses 1 million units sold. Lastly, our listeners respond with their video game presidential selections.

Games we’ve been playing are: Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1, Warhammer: Vermintide, Ratchet & Clank, and COD: Infinite Warfare.

Intro:
– Thoughts on Dr Strange movie

– NES Classic hoopla – Underhanded or incompetent?
“Nintendo continues to make it difficult for their fans to buy their products because…why? To generate buzz? To drive up grey-market prices? To test the limits of their loyalty? Or is it all somehow unintentional?”

– PS4 Pro release

– Nick’s impressions of PS VR

Community Question of the Week:
