So, two weeks ago, the audio was so corrupted, there was nothing that could be salvaged. A week later, the podcast only had one track working, so it was like Jonah speaking to imaginary people only he could hear. This podcast is finally perfect, with Rock Band being the Gaming Flashback.

This week’s news includes:

  • System Shock reboot that raised $1.3M on Kickstarter is now on “hiatus”
  • Dragon Ball FighterZ’s premium DLC characters revealed
  • Rumor: Diablo III is coming to Nintendo Switch

Let us know what you think.

This week, TJ talks about how much he’s loving Dragon Ball Fighter Z, and how he enjoys using one character’s OP exploit to take down opponents with breathtaking quickness. Jonah brings up doing a special podcast, like Paul, Jordan and Jennifer did with Doctor Who, except with Star Trek this time.

All this and this week’s news, which includes:

  • Sega teams up with Heavy Rain lead designer’s new studio to publish “narrative-driven” game
  • Rainbow Six: Siege tweet suggests upcoming PS4 Pro & Xbox One X support
  • Microsoft’s Mixer streaming service to get Twitch-style tipping
  • FIFA E-World Cup forced to switch to Xbox due to PSN outage

This week’s Question of the Week is “What game have you ended up playing til sunrise?”

  • Battlefield 1 is setting one of its maps free this week
  • LEGO Incredibles 2 and DC Villains games reportedly in the works
  • BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle has nabbed a Western release date
  • Stardew Valley creator teases multiplayer

This week’s Question of the Week is again “What popular game did you play long after its initial release?”

The audio quality is a little bad on this podcast, probably because Scott goes on and on about his fractured butt-hole. However, the episode was recorded on January 1, so there isn’t much news. The gang also challenges Paul to pop in and do an episode sometime.

What news that was discussed includes:

  • Project Phoenix accused of being a scam
  • Platinum Games working on two self-published games
  • Mutant Football League kicks off the New Year with a console launch

All this and Listener Feedback. The Question of the Week remains, “What game are you looking forward to in 2018?”

It’s the last Gaming Podcast episode of 2018, and it’s three hours long! Well, it’s to make up for the fact we won’t be doing one next week. There are only two news items, but the entire bulk of the episode is our Game Awards for 2017, and we took a different tack than most sites and podcasts by inventing our own Awards Categories!

The news we do discuss include:

  • Soulcalibur 6 finally brings the tale of swords and souls to PC
  • The Witcher 3 Xbox One X update could add support for HDR displays

We also discussed the game we’re looking forward to the most in 2018 — let us know which one you are interested in!
