plans to handle this move. I also touch upon some of my concerns with the growing trend of consolidation in the gaming industry. Lastly, I talk about Xbox Game Pass and what I believe it will become in the future, if these acquisitions continue.
In this episode, I go over all of our previous game of the year winners and then declare the winner for 2021. Admittedly, 2021 was pretty uneventful in the games department for me. In 2021 I focused on not spending money on a lot of new games and consoles, and instead started tackling my embarrassingly large backlog. While it was refreshing, I would definitely like to play more new releases this year. All that being said, while our game of the year may not have had a ton of competition, I don’t want to take away from how special it was/ is.
In this episode, Jon and I ramble on about our feelings on the latest installment in the Metroid franchise. For Jon, the long wait is finally over, after waiting years for a sequel to Metroid Fusion. For me, this is closer to an introduction into the 2D Metroid series. How did each of us fare on our respective adventures? You will have to listen to find out.
After wanting to talk about this game for two years, I finally talk, in greater detail about the previously controversial, Fallout 76. While I go over some of the old issues with the game, the goal of the episode is to determine if Fallout 76 has been redeemed.
In this episode I briefly go over who I think won E3. I also go over Nintendo newest model in the Switch lineup: The OLED Model. While no matter what Nintendo did they were bound to face backlash of some sort, this newest upgrade is certainly a little confusing. TLDR: Everyone is upset and I am now upset in solidarity.
In this episode of Gamepinions, I talk about God of War: Ragnarok’s delay and the fact that the game is now also coming to PlayStation 4. This could all be due to Covid, and I completely trust Santa Monica’s decision to delay the game. However, I think there could be for a different reason for this big decision.
In this episode we talk about the new PlayStation VR controllers, the Switch pro rumors, and the internet’s proclaimed death of Mario. We discuss if Nintendo’s approach to Super Mario 3D All-Stars is a genius business decision, or a dirty trick.
In this episode we talk how I am okay with Breath of the Wild 2 being missing in action, as it quells some of my underlying concerns with the game. Nintendo did a great job with the original game, so they deserve credit for taking their time. We also talk about some Pokemon Legends as well.
With all the negative attention Cyberpunk 2077 has been receiving, we decided to take a look at other game launches from this past generation. In this episode, we recap some of the game launches, that didn’t go so smoothly.
