Happy Thanksgiving to all our US listeners and those around the world celebrating the holiday. From our families to yours, we wish you all the very best this Holiday season.

It’s our pleasure to welcome back to Gamers In Beta, Syd Bolton. You might know Syd from The OMG Hour / Lost Treasures, as well as being Canada’s leading video game collector and historian. It’s always a fun time when Syd joins the show.

Topic this week include: the demise of the Titanfall franchise, Nintendo Switch, and our impressions of the Fall video game releases. We cover a lot over the next two hours; enjoy!
