After some of us were away for a week enjoying other parts of the country, like clockwork, we reconvene for another episode of the Gamers In Beta podcast.

Topics this week include the Call of Duty franchise going back in time, the leaked reports of a SNES classic, and more details about Star Wars Battlefront 2.

Games we’ve been playing are The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Flinthook, Marvel Heroes Omega, Ballz, Star Wars Battlefront, Tearaway Unfolded, and ARK: Survival Evolved.

And as usual, we have listener responses to our question of the week, as well as some quick news stories to close out Episode 197.
