  • Neil mental listen a mental you've been
  • gaming for a very long time you and I
  • have a tremendous amount of history
  • besides being brothers we actually
  • should be rich right now because we
  • invented arm talking while playing a
  • game you and I used to use the phones to
  • kind of talk with one another as we play
  • the game certainly not at the same time
  • but we play these particular game and we
  • never got any credit for that but it was
  • a big deal for us you know give the
  • people that are listening a kind of a
  • back story of where you came from when
  • it comes to gaming and what keeps you
  • coming back well I mean I've been gaming
  • since Atari 2600 so that's pretty old
  • you know we all met and a funcle' man
  • which was it was a crazy time I was
  • thinking about the other day it's 26
  • years ago and I still don't forgive
  • retro for making me stack and
  • alphabetize 6000 Nintendo cartridges
  • first day of work 16 hours I'm sorry I'm
  • never gonna forgive you um but uh but
  • yeah I mean Funko man was off a huge
  • part of it um but just every every game
  • system that's been out we've played and
  • you know just the joy of it I'm
  • another back in the days when you know
  • you know we used to go to my house you
  • know unfortunately I didn't have a a
  • good school attendance so a lot of times
  • people used to come to my house to cut
  • we used to play Madden um you know
  • basketball all day long and just to joy
  • a play with friends and stuff from
  • playing all these games that were just
  • amazing Commodore was my favorite system
  • I've spend two sinking hours in today um
  • you know just games man it's just it's
  • all about joy I mean people read people
  • watch movies you know we play games so
  • you know it's just for me what you know
  • what to tell the people you know and we
  • talk about this all the time what was
  • your favorite Commodore 64 game I mean
  • easy Zach McCracken I'm nice you know I
  • I loved it so much I mean maenette
  • mansion was good but Zach was just weird
  • I mean I just loved that game so much I
  • mean I still go back to it I really wish
  • they would have rereleased that for some
  • that just games just one of my most
  • favorite games I you know I still have
  • the five inch floppies I don't have a
  • comment or any more they got messed up
  • but I'm a I'm in track one down
  • I don't want an emulate but I don't want
  • the real thing yeah that makes sense I
  • mean listen it's there's something about
  • having the old hardware and the old
  • you know software to really bring back
  • that retro feeling you know holding the
  • I mean it's great digital ever is here
  • it's gonna be you know obviously it's
  • gonna keep advancing we're at one point
  • or another you may not even have a box
  • underneath your TV but yeah I'm right
  • there with you know we both have a lot
  • of stuff in storage I mean I have some
  • real classic consoles like the Vectrex
  • for instance I don't even know people
  • remember remember yeah people need to
  • remember what that is you know back in
  • the day the Vectrex you know it was a it
  • was its own entity where it had its own
  • screen it's only controller folded out
  • and the cartridges went in and it didn't
  • have color you had to use plastic
  • screens to add color to your game which
  • was obviously you know why it didn't it
  • didn't you know be a success but uh
  • before I get to Jay the destroy because
  • we have a lot to talk about
  • I have
  • thank Lord sovereign for the incredible
  • $5 super chat and he says heading to a
  • family thing but I just wanted to show
  • some love to Lord boom
  • keep up the good work my brother and yes
  • we have a big announcement coming up
  • sometime in the next few months
  • something I'm going to be doing with the
  • Lords of the iron Lord podcast and I
  • cannot wait to talk about that but J the
  • destroyer you and I my friend
  • we had some trade offs and one of my
  • personal favorite Christmas memories and
  • I think it's one of yours as well is
  • when we imported Sonic Adventure for the
  • Sega Dreamcast and it arrived at my
  • place where you were waiting with the
  • tin of cookies to give me and you played
  • the entire Christmas Eve you know
  • stories like that or I think what really
  • kind of bring the friendship together
  • but tell everyone where your gaming
  • comes from why you continue to come back
  • and why we did these crazy trade offs
  • you know our story my story is not so
  • different from any of yours so surprise
  • everybody we're all a bunch of old dudes
  • Oh everything goes back to the 2600 and
  • then since then I pretty much owned what
  • tried to own every system that came out
  • big Sega fan so you know I was the
  • weirdo who took his NES and threw it out
  • the window and bought a Master System
  • and loved the Master System I loved it
  • just uh everything arcade its it doesn't
  • matter but like I said Sega stuff is
  • really a had it has been my favorite
  • throughout my life so the Dreamcast the
  • Saturn the Genesis all that kind of
  • stuff and I don't know I just gaming is
  • like it's like its life it's uh it's the
  • way I chill out that's basically it
  • well I mean listen you know obviously
  • life you gets in the way and you know
  • I'm not
  • to get into particulars but I have to
  • say publicly how proud I am of Jada
  • destroyer he had a real tough 2017 and
  • 2018 he made a comeback kind of like you
  • know the the phoenix rising from the
  • ashes and gaming was at the forefront of
  • his therapy and I think that is for
  • everyone you know you come home from a
  • tough day of work and you know it could
  • be for anything your boss breaking your
  • balls or you just had a tough day you
  • got something wrong you got hurt or
  • whatever and it just was a long shift
  • some people that I know like a good
  • friend of the show Jago is normally
  • working 12 and 14-hour days and
  • sometimes he's I had to work through our
  • being in pain because he got hurt on the
  • job and video games are the therapy that
  • we all use you know to navigate through
  • life but you know Jada destroyer real
  • quick the trade-offs that we used to
  • have were something are that are still
  • are always gonna be memorable for us you
  • know we used to watch the he's and you
  • know Jada this race to come over or I
  • used to go over to his house and we used
  • to watch w's WCW nitro back when
  • wrestling was good and he or I would
  • bring loads of games just to try and
  • trade with one another to try and get
  • that gem that each of us had mine was
  • the cypher box collector's edition that
  • came with the art book and everything
  • and I never I never ever linked with
  • that particular part of my collection
  • destroy it tell us about those how much
  • fun did we have with those collection
  • trades that we used to do we had a great
  • one I you were like the shrewd guy who
  • didn't want to give up anything I was
  • the guy who would even up half a
  • collection just to go home with one game
  • that I wanted I remember I offered you
  • I might have been six or seven games and
  • a kitchen sink for the cyber BOTS and
  • you and you didn't even play that
  • anymore
  • and I got a Raspberry Pi now so now you
  • have cyber box yeah it's a world well
  • you know what it's funny because you
  • know I'm not the out of the group I'm
  • the least technical everyone knows that
  • I'm not making it making that up I would
  • consider myself a a technical boob if
  • you will and before the internet was a
  • thing I remember calling jaded destroyer
  • on a regular basis and my tag line to
  • him was hey dude any Capcom news because
  • I was such a big big fan so that you
  • know again it's it's it's these stories
  • that I think that really ground us as
  • people
  • I got a throw just one real super quick
  • this is didn't we're old and nerdy and
  • me and boom used to hook up on the net
  • link okay yes I don't try to hook up to
  • whom Daytona and something else I don't
  • even remember and I just remember you
  • had your apartment and you know we're
  • talking about old you know phones back
  • then like with an actual phone cord yes
  • and boom had a cord that must have been
  • about 200 feet people were tripping on
  • it and it was like just to play Daytona
  • oh my god yes it on the net link the net
  • link yes another incredible invention
  • that gets little to no credit in 2019
  • yes the cable I could have climbed up to
  • the fifth floor using that cable that's
  • how long it was it was outrageous
  • do you remember x-band oh yes I do
  • expand oh yes we you and I played Mortal
  • Kombat with the green blood a killer
  • instinct which looked like blobs on the
  • screen but back then greatest games that
  • ever was released but you know what real
  • quick before I move on to J the retro
  • gamer because he has a very interesting
  • story one of which that involved a
  • possible kidnapping and you know dumped
  • into a lake for not returning a
  • particular system to a Yonkers Police
  • Officer we'll talk about that in a
  • second Jay Jay the destroyer I think
  • that your kids are in the
  • chat and they would like us give them a
  • public shout-out and that would be
  • pretty awesome hello Emily and Ben yes
  • Ben Ben is a great player yes he is and
  • he just wanted me to say that his
  • favorite game is bendy in the ink
  • machine nice
  • he was shot it out okay well listen
  • everyone knows and you know what he is a
  • good kid
  • Jada destroyers kids are fantastic and
  • they're they're gamers and they grew up
  • you know watching their dad play and I
  • think that's really awesome but we have
  • to move on to Jay the retro gamer now we
  • all met retro when he was the very
  • shrewd and snotty at times manager of
  • funcoland on Yonkers yeah a little bit a
  • little bit you you you would you would
  • have to kind of get a hold of sometimes
  • as a matter of fact during a blizzard
  • that dumped over two feet of snow you
  • refused to close the store and Dan and I
  • had to put our foot down and walk out
  • because guess one I drove a shabang back
  • then and my brother who had to save us
  • because one of my wiper blades decides
  • I'm working and he had to keep his arm
  • out that were out on the of the car the
  • entire drive home using the broken wiper
  • so we could see and not die um you are
  • like I said you you are a technical dude
  • you helped me build the Raspberry Pi
  • that I use for pretty much just aliens
  • vs. predator which is my favorite game
  • like top five games of all time but you
  • know what you you also have a tremendous
  • history in the business of gaming you've
  • worked for numerous stores you you've
  • been to many many trade shows you were
  • actually there at e3 in its infancy and
  • got to see it grow into what it is now
  • get give the other people listening kind
  • of like a you know just kind of a
  • background story of for gaming what it
  • means to you and where you started yeah
  • I mean my again my store is the same as
  • everyone else's but I think it you know
  • it bears saying that you know growing up
  • in the 70s I just I'm so thankful that
  • we got to grow up in the beginning yes I
  • the tree and see how it see how it's
  • grown over the years but otherwise my
  • early gaming is not any different than
  • anybody else's so not only did I play on
  • the Atari as well but just you know
  • hanging out in arcades and like Nathan's
  • and in Yonkers for those that know that
  • place you know playing playing the
  • arcades putting your quarters on a
  • machine and you know to announce that
  • you're next and reading game magazines
  • like electronic games and egm before
  • there was ever such a thing is the
  • internet when multiplayer meant kind of
  • trying to get an invite to your friend's
  • house to play space invaders on the 2600
  • because you hadn't gone in yet you know
  • just a simpler time so you know and then
  • in my 20s of course as mentioned you
  • know I did run if I did run a funcle'
  • and back in the day and you know I felt
  • that's I fell in love mostly with the
  • Super Nintendo which I think in my
  • opinion was way better than the Genesis
  • there I said it
  • but that's where a lot of you know of
  • the love of certain genres just kind of
  • came from I did yes I did get to tend
  • the very first few e3 's and while
  • working at Funko you know probably the
  • greatest time of my life when it came to
  • games because just it made me feel so
  • much like an insider in an industry that
  • I loved and still do and in the 90s I
  • also got introduced to PC emulation you
  • know through things like name and other
  • programs so I got to kind of relive my
  • early days my early videogame days
  • through that and as a gamer you know it
  • was awesome and and still is that I
  • consider myself a core gamer and I
  • gravitate mainly towards like
  • action-adventure platformers open-world
  • games just I love the immersiveness and
  • depth of the current games but at heart
  • I'm always gonna be the retro game or so
  • listen yeah you have an interesting
  • story I mean it's it's it's pretty
  • pretty cool that I mean but listen I
  • talk about this all the time you know a
  • lot of us here remember playing when
  • games looked like you know were
  • basically programmed to be just blocks
  • and dots and and lines across the screen
  • and and now in 2019
  • we're getting you know photorealistic
  • imagery that is you know only it's only
  • outdone by actual movies that cost 300
  • million dollars to make so it's it's
  • pretty I feel very privileged to have
  • seen the industry grow the way it has
  • but you know what great stories from
  • everybody and what I want to do is I
  • kind of just want to start moving on to
  • the topics because we do have a lot to
  • cover first I the first topic we're
  • going to go into and I'll start with neo
  • mental on this is the biggest surprise
  • slash disappointment for the calendar
  • year of 2018 um let's let's discuss what
  • blew our socks off and what title as a
  • gamer lets you down so neo mentals you
  • start if you don't mind dude mmm the
  • biggest letdown for me was fallout 76
  • yeah that I mean oddly enough it's in my
  • top 10 but I mean just just from
  • disclosure my top 10 is a little weird
  • because for the last probably the entire
  • time we've been doing this top 10 list
  • amongst ourselves I've always been
  • getting clowned on cuz I never actually
  • have 10 games because ever since destiny
  • and the division that pretty much takes
  • a lot of my time so you know I don't get
  • a chance to play a lot of the games so a
  • lot of stuff falls by the wayside
  • sometimes I buy it only put a couple
  • hours in there but um for our 76 I put a
  • chunk of time into and that game has so
  • many problems it's not even funny but it
  • still made it so yeah it's between the
  • glitches the fact that the human
  • interaction is almost non-existent
  • server crashes economy but the fact that
  • the game looks like it's 10 years old I
  • don't know yeah I mean look I get a lot
  • of the criticism for it I mean look at
  • fallout they're not gonna redo that
  • engine they're not gonna rebuild it from
  • the ground up I wish they would they're
  • just not it's horrible I mean yeah it's
  • 2018-2019 we should be getting something
  • better but Bethesda is not gonna do that
  • from scratch it's pretty much what
  • you're gonna be playing for the next 20
  • years but yeah that that
  • undoubtedly was the biggest bomb for me
  • that was just made me angry okay so in
  • regards to like biggest surprise like
  • what what what shocked you as a gamer in
  • 2018 for me in Detroit oh nice
  • good pick that one it was completely off
  • my radar it's like a little bit before
  • it came out and then once I started
  • playing it I was I did not expect it to
  • be as as good as it was um and I just
  • haven't seen you know combination of
  • storytelling and you know production in
  • that in in a long time I mean from yet
  • it just it's sideswiping yeah I do not
  • expect to be able to sleep that much
  • time into a game that wasn't destiny in
  • a division in a long time nice strong
  • too strong picks Jay the destroyer I
  • want to go too you do cuz like me you
  • buy everything or at least try to
  • what were your biggest surprises and/or
  • your biggest disappointments for 2018
  • the biggest disappointment I'm just
  • gonna say even though I dug it and I I
  • do I'm still playing it docksiders three
  • I really expected it to be a lot better
  • than it was okay well it's good I just
  • it just it's not as good as one or two
  • I mean even though I do like it a lot I
  • mean the checkpoints are ridiculous yes
  • if you have a huge problem with in this
  • day and age when you have to play a half
  • hour 40 minutes to save get the hell out
  • of here that's ridiculous
  • but the biggest surprise is not really a
  • game it is the arcade one of machines
  • yes known about that for a second
  • because you built an arcade in your home
  • which we're gonna see for the first time
  • and it's pretty impressive and I'll tell
  • you something they they came out I you
  • know I said alright I'll check it out
  • they I said like the Street Fighter
  • machine like that looks really cool and
  • then I got the street fighting machine
  • and it was awesome and then I got the
  • Galaga machine that was awesome and I
  • was like all right I can only fit two
  • and then I'm
  • space for three and then I was like I'm
  • done and then I moved one little piece
  • of furniture and I was like okay fine
  • pac-man so I have I have four and uh a
  • lot of people dog that company and I
  • honestly I don't get why I've had
  • minimal to any kind of issues at all any
  • time I've had to call them for any kind
  • of customer service stuff they've been
  • incredible and they're just so cool and
  • it's not a real arcade machine you're
  • buying it at Walmart and you're buying
  • it at Best Buy but for what it is it is
  • I you know when someone asks me like
  • about the street fighting machine I'll
  • be like you know uh it's an awesome
  • Street Fighter collectible like that's
  • really how I am yes like but I thought
  • I've had them since problems since
  • they've because i pre-ordered a street
  • fighter all the way back in June so I
  • had it since pretty much day one when
  • they first shipped them out and I
  • thought after a while it would get a
  • little old it never gets old I wake up
  • every morning and look over at them and
  • on a Sunday morning to have a cup of
  • coffee and to sit at pacman or Galaga
  • it's just awesome it's awesome so I love
  • them and that's been the biggest
  • surprise for me this year like how much
  • that's affected me like what it's done
  • what they've done so god bless it arcade
  • 1up and their MK 2 machine which is
  • coming out by September yes looks killer
  • yes right away if I have to toss it in
  • the bathroom with toss one of them in
  • the bathroom listen I'm gonna say this
  • real quick a lot of people may or may
  • not know this arcade one up is a sponsor
  • of the double barrel gaming channel on
  • YouTube I still pinch myself I can't
  • believe they took a chance on a small
  • but growing channel they were very very
  • kind enough to send me right before
  • Christmas as a matter of fact I was
  • actually considered an early Christmas
  • present the review cabinet for the
  • Midway arcade which I will be putting
  • together and reviewing either Monday or
  • Tuesday of this week on
  • channel so please look out for that and
  • yeah they just the ECSC
  • CES just happened and they just
  • announced Mortal Kombat 2 Space Invaders
  • final fight golf tee which is you know
  • gonna be good for some people because
  • back in the days
  • yup yeah a lot of people used a lot of
  • guys for the older guys used to stand in
  • front that machine and just play for
  • hours so that's gonna be a big deal um
  • but yet you want something else one
  • second yeah a lot of people also dog it
  • because the marquees aren't lit well
  • Golden Tee is the first one that has a
  • lit match II so they are doing lit
  • markeith supposedly it's gonna be a
  • little more in the future and if they do
  • then that's fine they have wok aides
  • coming with yes don't have the space is
  • is super cool they have uh they have the
  • countertops yeah which one awesome
  • yes also look cool again if you don't
  • have the space and and I just want to
  • say one thing as a lot of people think
  • like like these things take up a lot of
  • space as you'll see tonight when we hang
  • out dude they don't take up a lot of
  • space the footprint is 20 inches yes
  • what 20 inches that maybe like 15 deep I
  • mean it really does not have a big
  • footprint so you could fit you think you
  • can't fit one you definitely could in a
  • corner somewhere in your place no
  • definitely I I'm like I said I can't
  • wait to hook mine up and I can't wait to
  • you know because later on this evening
  • we're getting together for dinner and
  • Jay the destroyer is gonna actually show
  • off his arcade to us I'm super stoked
  • for that but real quick before I get to
  • Jay the retro gamer I have to say a big
  • thank you to Joe set Rivera who of
  • course is my wife for the awesome and
  • supportive $20 super chat and she says
  • good afternoon all glad that the guys
  • finally let everyone in on your annual
  • gaming discussion have a great time and
  • yes darling we certainly will thank you
  • so much for that but Jay the retro gamer
  • I want to get your opinion on this
  • because I think you have a good one and
  • something is some important talking
  • points your biggest surprise or and your
  • biggest disappointment of 2018
  • yeah so when it came to disappointment I
  • have to that i kind of jotted down the
  • first one being on a small-scale tempest
  • 4000 not very many people I played that
  • dream but back in the day on the
  • PlayStation one of my favorite games of
  • all time was Tempest x3 and once I knew
  • this game was coming out of a super
  • stoked but once I put my hands on the
  • controller and started playing this I
  • said this game doesn't feel right it's
  • not the tempest I know I put it down
  • almost immediately and I was just so
  • disappointed in that particular game so
  • personally that one's a disappointment
  • but one that may surprise people is to
  • some extent I thought Red Dead
  • Redemption 2 was a disappointment I'll
  • explain more of that later but to
  • understand why but it wasn't the game
  • that I had hoped it would be on the on
  • the surprise side another big pick for
  • me was god of war nice I don't think
  • there's any question that the game we
  • you know we all knew that the game was
  • gonna be great what I didn't expect and
  • what surprised me is just how heartfelt
  • of a game you know anyone that knows the
  • character of kratos knows how
  • one-dimensional he was and to be so
  • engaged in a story with the name god of
  • war on it couldn't have been a bigger
  • surprise to me personally so yeah i mean
  • your your big fan of the God of War
  • series so you know I'm sure for you as a
  • fan seeing that it went from just a
  • pretty much a hack and slash and and
  • some would even dare say that it was you
  • know soulless to the point where it was
  • just I'm angry and completely just
  • everything to a real emotional strong
  • story where you know you know you back
  • story of what happened after you know he
  • was impaled at the end of three which we
  • all thought was going to be the end of
  • him and they reimagined this in a way I
  • mean my goodness Corey bar Logue and his
  • team just completely knocked it out of
  • the park again it's by all rights it
  • should have been my game of the year it
  • got edged out by a bit but we're getting
  • it we're gonna get to that in a little
  • yeah yeah of course and that you know if
  • you watch the Game Awards and he came
  • out and said that that was also
  • PS by the way anyway we're going to move
  • on to the next topic and it's the
  • biggest title that you personally
  • believe got snubbed by the gaming media
  • when talking game of the year and I've
  • seen many lists through personal choices
  • and they of course are all subjective to
  • each gamer
  • but there are some egregious mistakes
  • that I have to talk about that we're
  • gonna talk about and for me personally
  • because normally as a host I don't
  • answer the questions because you know
  • I'm asking them and I want to get the
  • opinion of the people I have on but I'm
  • of course because today is a game of the
  • year discussion I have to get myself
  • involved and for me personally it was
  • Assassin's Creed Odyssey this game not
  • only looked great it played great
  • the story was telling it you know you
  • can see it from two different
  • perspectives if you chose the brother or
  • the sister it is a game that I put
  • almost nearly 200 hours into I am
  • literally waiting by the fence for the
  • DLC to drop I try to you know play the
  • day it comes out that's how excited I am
  • I still jump in and run around even
  • though I have almost every achievement
  • in the game I'm still enjoying it but
  • you know what
  • neo mantle I want to get to you on this
  • for you personally for someone who
  • watched 2018 come and go what game in
  • your opinion got the snub from the media
  • mmm I mean you know again I'm gonna go
  • back to Detroit I just didn't feel like
  • you got the good point that's good a
  • great great choice you know
  • as I think a lot of times when it's
  • discussed you know Detroit just wasn't
  • in it and I mean I when you when you
  • look at a lot of the lists you know I
  • mean the storytelling in that game the
  • the mechanics of it I mean I just never
  • see it get the love it should have
  • gotten um you know there's a couple
  • other games but for me I mean I don't
  • know I guess I'm gonna be champ in
  • Detroit for most of the list but I
  • really feel a Detroit should've got way
  • more than it did I I absolutely agree
  • 100% with you it's one
  • my favorite games of 2018 there's no
  • doubt about it I think what you know
  • when you talk about games a lot of the
  • times you know story or graphics
  • characters those those are at the
  • forefront of a discussion but there's
  • something that was a certain story or a
  • situation if you will of racial
  • undertone being really told through the
  • eyes of an of three different androids
  • and I and I think that never gets
  • mentioned and I think it's a big deal
  • because yes it is not the mainstay of
  • the game but if you if you read between
  • the lines and and and you see what the
  • what they were trying what story they
  • were trying to tell it was very
  • impressive and it was a very serious
  • you know life topic and again they
  • didn't shove it down your throat but it
  • was the story that they were telling I
  • think that particular part of the entire
  • game very rarely gets spoken about so
  • good choice for that dude um Jay the
  • destroyer I want to get to you on this
  • in your opinion what was the biggest
  • title you felt that kind of got
  • overlooked by the media which does do
  • that every now and again I'm gonna agree
  • with neo mental and I'll say Detroit
  • it's like you know it should have gotten
  • more accolades than it did and and just
  • to get this out of the way because my
  • kids are driving me nuts
  • my son Ben wants to say that he feels
  • that Jurassic Park evolution for the
  • Xbox one that that was overlooked well I
  • mean listen again it's it he has a voice
  • he is he is a gamer so he does have a
  • voice oh good for you Ben for getting
  • that out there for everyone to hear
  • I do greatly appreciate that and I will
  • say that for Detroit that honestly I'm
  • not just trying to name-drop my daughter
  • but she played a lot of it in front of
  • me when I just didn't have the time to
  • play it and she loved it and I loved
  • watching her play it so Emily good job
  • playing Detroit yes again one of my
  • personal favorites I think that if you
  • own a place
  • station four I think you owe it to
  • yourself again if you're into story
  • driven games okay may not be some people
  • say that's a movie I've heard that
  • numerous times from other people like I
  • was you're playing a movie listen if
  • you're holding a controller in your hand
  • in my opinion you're playing a game now
  • if it's not your bag I completely
  • understand that but it's certain all
  • graphically speaking it might be one of
  • the most incredible graphical show
  • pieces on the PlayStation and I again
  • going back to its story I think that
  • it's worth taking a look at it's it's
  • certainly if you know it's probably half
  • price now you could probably pick it up
  • for like 30 bucks I think it's worth
  • that I paid the full price and I'm not
  • sorry that I did but last but certainly
  • not least Joe yeah I mean Jay the retro
  • gamer I want to get your opinion on you
  • know what title for you did you feel
  • that you needed more championing and
  • more importantly you know what do you
  • think what where do you think the media
  • you know took a misstep on it's it's
  • really hard for me to kind of mention
  • cuz I I really don't know of one off the
  • top of my certainly Detroit I mean I
  • kind of echo everyone else's I mean
  • everything in video gaming doesn't have
  • to be about shooting hacking slashing
  • you know and I'm just very glad there's
  • there's you know companies like Quantic
  • Dream's that elevate the medium in that
  • way through storytelling and there's no
  • question that heavy rain back in the ps3
  • days is one of my absolute favorite
  • games on that system so just very happy
  • that a game like Detroit exists it's
  • actually one of the games that I have
  • not gotten to this year I have the game
  • on my shelf I am going to get to it at
  • some point but as of yet have not
  • otherwise you know it I to play a few
  • more of the the smaller games that
  • always can use a little bit more love
  • games like chasm time spinner both to
  • great Metroidvania 's so last I know got
  • a lot of love certainly at the the Video
  • Game Awards but that game is great and
  • so games like that you know games by
  • small teams that just have a lot of
  • passion for a genre and it shows okay
  • well you know what we're gonna we're
  • gonna talk about the top ten that's
  • coming up so get ready for that but J
  • the retro gamer had actually made a
  • point to say that we should talk about
  • honorable mentions prior to going to our
  • top ten and of course then the game of
  • the year so we're gonna do that that's
  • gonna be the next topic and I'm gonna
  • start off I have four that made the list
  • of this particular list of good enough
  • but not perfect enough to make it into
  • my personal top 10 I want to start out
  • with something that roulette launched on
  • December 7th for the Nintendo switch
  • called Super Smash Brothers ultimate I
  • think it is absolutely outstanding yes I
  • understand it's kind of just an HD move
  • over but the fact that they added every
  • character from every game ever is a big
  • deal they have a DLC plan which is
  • incredible we know we're getting Joker
  • from persona 5 which is ridiculous we
  • know with the piranha plant was free if
  • you bought it on day one and there's
  • real have heavy rumors of other fighters
  • that include the the main character from
  • Ninja Gaiden which is ridiculous if they
  • get him but I won't go too much into
  • that octa path traveler if you're into
  • JRPGs on the Nintendo switch is another
  • fantastic title of course it is an
  • exclusive that is a big deal another one
  • I think a couple people on this panel
  • and maybe even I know jegos gonna dig
  • this Capcom's beat him up bundle on that
  • was fantastic I mean everyone knows on
  • this panel and I think people in the
  • chat know how much of a Capcom nut I am
  • and how much I appreciate side-scrolling
  • beat'em ups and the last on the list is
  • going to be another side scroller raging
  • justice which I really really enjoyed
  • got a chance to privately talk with the
  • developer and with that was at 2018
  • correct yes it was that was it yeah
  • another one and you know
  • last but not least and I would feel
  • almost terrible if I didn't mention it's
  • a way out I believe it was this year as
  • well and I think that considering that
  • it was a game that you could buy and
  • logistically play with your friend
  • without them owning the copy was
  • ingenious we all know that the guy ft
  • Oscars he's one of my favorite people of
  • all time to go on one of those shows but
  • you know what I want to go to Neal
  • mental for you personally dude what were
  • your honorable mentions for 2018 well
  • you know since my list is short
  • there was only one technically you
  • didn't make it and that was far cry 5 ok
  • strong wrongful and that was was because
  • I didn't think a lot of time into it um
  • I mean I technically could have put it
  • in the 10 spot um which was weird
  • because my tens gonna be controversial
  • anyway but um yeah for far cry 5 I just
  • kind of felt it was more the same um you
  • know I think I got like 10 15 hours into
  • it and just nothing in there really made
  • me feel like going back to you more um I
  • just don't it was kind of like there was
  • nothing really
  • anything ended it like blew me away so
  • that was why I just made the honorable
  • mentions and that was the only one hand
  • okay well I mean you and I both played a
  • way out I mean do you feel that that
  • could have been one of them as well well
  • believe it or not that made my top 10 Oh
  • strong strong okay excellent excellent
  • well that's good Jay the destroyer I
  • know you play a lot of games as well as
  • try to buy everything like me what games
  • for you were good but not good enough to
  • make your personal top 10 I'm gonna
  • throw out a couple of really weird
  • titles that if you're like not deep into
  • stuff I guess maybe you never heard of
  • or maybe you did whatever or maybe you
  • didn't try it so I'm just gonna hit
  • these hard and fast one heavy burger
  • does anybody know what that is I have no
  • idea I'm sorry
  • the burgers heavy barrel and burger time
  • combined with Robotron nice and it it's
  • on the switch or her and it's freaking
  • it has it has no right to be as good as
  • it is apart
  • from beginning to end and it's awesome
  • Dragonball Fighters yes strong that was
  • he is a shooter on the switch
  • I love old-school shooters and I'm not
  • talking about an actual first-person
  • shooter i'm an old dude so a shooter
  • actually means to me a little spaceship
  • that shoots danmaku unlimited awesome
  • game one of the best you know space
  • shooters whatever you want to call it in
  • a long time here's one real quick I
  • don't care what anybody thinks
  • SNK heroines tag team frenzy nice a fun
  • game that was too more my hero ones
  • justice which is an anime thing dude I'm
  • not into anime so I don't even know what
  • it is but the fighting engine is awesome
  • and the graphics of killer that's for
  • the ps4 and I probably think the Xbox
  • and onrush which is wrong which at this
  • point if you haven't tried it I mean
  • it's it's it's it's killer oh yeah
  • absolutely but one of the one of the
  • best arcade races to come around in
  • years Sony had one for the ps3 that was
  • a launch title Joe that was our favorite
  • racer of all time I forgot the name of
  • it border storm Mordor storm main same
  • team of what us what a great game II
  • listen if you have a ps3 and you want to
  • play an incredible racer way ahead of
  • its time
  • motorstorm still in this to this day
  • holds up on how strong that game is and
  • onrush continues the madness it's in
  • game pass it was free in December for
  • the PlayStation Plus members III mean
  • again it's they were giving it away
  • absolutely well worth it our strong list
  • dude really good and I want to finish it
  • off with J the retro gamer for you what
  • made this list but not the main list as
  • I mentioned before I think chasm this
  • little small little game that was I
  • believe it was kick-started a couple of
  • years ago I could be wrong about that it
  • was you know it's a good Metroidvania
  • genre that you'll find that I quit that
  • I loved a lot but it just sittin did
  • simply didn't stick with me when I put
  • you know about halfway through it and
  • also Celeste which i think is free right
  • now yes I know yes it's not the games of
  • gold
  • yeah games are gold I mean everyone
  • deserves a you know to owe it to
  • themselves to at least try it I thought
  • that platforming and that game felt so
  • good but the difficulty in that game
  • ramps up pretty quickly as well as the
  • frustration factor and that you know
  • those two things combined just made me
  • kind of give up way sooner than I might
  • have normally done it I'm just not that
  • good at it but it's a fantastic game
  • yeah I mean listen it's that's that's
  • the great thing about these shows that's
  • the great thing about getting people to
  • talk about their games because sometimes
  • their games that we didn't hear about
  • that we'll go and say oh okay they said
  • it on this show I'm gonna go over to my
  • switch ps4 or Xbox one check it out look
  • at the tree and like wait a second I
  • love what they're talking about and you
  • buy the game I love hearing about this
  • stuff but you know what overall opinion
  • in gaming for 2018 is you know it
  • depends on who you speak to some people
  • and we've believed you know the four of
  • us have joked about what is that every
  • year that passes when we get to these
  • shows that we used to do privately now
  • we're now gonna share with the world oh
  • it's the best year in gaming it trumped
  • you know 2007 which is considered like
  • the the standard if you will when it
  • comes to Gears in gaming I think 2018
  • man it's so many so many strong titles
  • and I think I say this every year and I
  • get I get the guys heckle me for it it
  • was real hard to put a top 10 list
  • together and then get those things
  • situated where cuz you know when you
  • play when you play a game for 40 50 60
  • 100 hours like I do you almost feel that
  • if it's not put in the proper spot it's
  • almost like you're insulting the title
  • so for me personally putting the top 10
  • wasn't as hard getting the 10 in there
  • it's where they went and we're gonna
  • start that right now and we're gonna
  • start with 10 and I'm gonna go first and
  • we're gonna kind of do a round robin and
  • we're gonna give a little bit of a story
  • as to why
  • and for me on on number 10 for 2018 is
  • going to be hell blade by Ninja Theory
  • on the Xbox one I did not put as much
  • time in it on the ps4 when it launched
  • but I played it through to completion I
  • actually played through almost twice
  • trying to get that one last achievement
  • which I still did not get and I'm pissed
  • about that but it was a game that told
  • such an incredible emotional real-life
  • for some people kind of a story and done
  • by a small team as a matter of fact you
  • know you know about who did the mocap
  • thing I mean it's just they were cutting
  • corners left and right trying to make
  • this game a reality and what they were
  • able to do was nothing short of a
  • masterpiece but neo mental I want to get
  • your number 10 for 2018 alright so this
  • is where I went left I actually picked
  • up Assassin's Creed Odyssey
  • well actually I rented it I installed it
  • and everything I got to the main menu
  • and that's as far as I got so no one
  • watching you know some of your stuff and
  • know what it was especially all the
  • buzzword I just wanted to put it in a
  • slot so that's an Asterix for me I think
  • that had I actually got a chance to play
  • it it would have cracked my top 5 but I
  • just feel bad that it just not getting
  • me loved but to gain you know it's
  • really good from everything I've seen
  • and everything that I heard I haven't
  • had you know any real complaints about
  • well I haven't heard any real complaints
  • about it so you know it's it's at number
  • 10 with an asterisk so ok all right
  • listen again the life life it comes
  • first and sometimes we can't get to
  • every game I think that's a you know an
  • obvious statement but that that's that's
  • a strong number 10 Jay the destroyer
  • what was your number 10 for 2018 again
  • I'm just gonna preface my list with it's
  • my favorite games not the best or
  • whatever and some of them are gonna be I
  • don't know if someone thinks they're odd
  • or whatever number 10 Mega Man 11 strong
  • title
  • back back and and get in get in it and
  • get back on track more than megaman 11
  • awesome awesome graphics tight tight
  • gameplay ah that's my number 10 well
  • that that's a strong I mean listen
  • Capcom came back in a big way Megaman 11
  • looked amazing I do have it I have to
  • get into it so it's unfortunately part
  • of the backlog and J the the retro gamer
  • what is your number 10 I also just
  • wanted to preface that a lot of them you
  • know when people listen to this they're
  • gonna think that we've played through
  • all of these games in the top ten and
  • that's you know that's not going to be
  • the case it's the best games that made
  • the most impression the biggest
  • impression on this but not the ones that
  • we've completed 100% just wanted to
  • point that out that being said my number
  • ten is quartz ah horizon for game is
  • absolutely gorgeous
  • I'm not strong using I love the seasoned
  • gameplay that Microsoft heavily marketed
  • you know its attention to detail is
  • incredible but you know honestly you
  • know when it comes to turn 10 studios
  • you expect that there's not really much
  • to say it's the single best racer out
  • there but secretly you know I just still
  • wish for another great need for speed
  • Ridge Racer of god forbid burnout game
  • well I mean listen one can hope but
  • that's a strong title from me
  • number nine is going to be on rush by
  • Codemasters I mean I have to say I had
  • put they had a free weekend for that
  • game and I've got about maybe 700
  • achievement points um in that free
  • weekend it's it's a game I must have put
  • 30 plus hours in in a matter of two and
  • a half days counting Friday I could not
  • put it down I think it was it's probably
  • one of my favorite racers in an all time
  • in like my top five it was just so
  • amazing to play the graphics were
  • gorgeous tight control it just kept me
  • coming back so that that's my number
  • nine but I want to go to neo mental what
  • was your number nine for 2018 well my
  • number nine went to a way out
  • um strong you know the fact that it was
  • a game that you could play cuz I mean
  • look you got destiny you know the games
  • where you just team up with someone do
  • your own thing and then you're done but
  • I think that that mechanic um was
  • incredibly interested in we played it um
  • you know a bunch of times
  • excuse me and it was a really just
  • interesting way to uh the storytelling I
  • mean like you know you got one guy going
  • on one side and someone else is doing
  • this other part trying to avoid this
  • guard I mean it it was a really
  • different game and I just love it when
  • someone does something outside of the
  • box and is trying something different
  • cuz I really feel like you know we've
  • kind of Apex to a point where the
  • console graphics I mean they're gonna
  • get better better but we're kind of
  • really at a point now where I want to
  • get back to gameplay um I can care less
  • right now about the graphics of it I
  • really just need strong story and useful
  • mechanics I don't want to sit there and
  • be frustrated because something didn't
  • work out right and I got to sit there
  • and try to figure something out I just
  • really want to be I want to get lost in
  • the game and I think that a way out was
  • really a good a good direction I'm gonna
  • see more that yeah I mean that's true I
  • mean obviously graphics are one thing
  • but gameplay control and story if
  • there's of those are failed than the
  • game and it could look amazing and still
  • be a fail so I agree 100% J the
  • destroyer what comes in at your number
  • nine spot for 2018 I love dropping games
  • on a list that no one else mentions so
  • I'm gonna say strange Brigade ah strong
  • title do love rebellion games I love
  • from aliens vs. predator to sniper to
  • dislike for elite I mean I just like
  • this style of gaming fun
  • stupid quick gameplay just so good if
  • you if it's in the game past if you
  • haven't checked it out just check it out
  • it's it's top notch stupid fun yeah and
  • it's four player co-op yes it's got it's
  • got a it's got some good DLC too and
  • like I said you'll have a
  • great I'm not heavy you know just having
  • a good time and what's better than that
  • yeah I mean it's like an old-school
  • shooter old yep yeah IIIi truly enjoyed
  • that else also in-game PSPs by the way
  • if you're interested je the retro gamer
  • what comes in at number nine for you
  • yeah another very much under the radar
  • game comes in at my number nine which is
  • time spinner it's a game that was
  • kick-started and I'm a huge supporter of
  • Kickstarter and when you know when it
  • comes to genres that I love that I don't
  • see getting made very much it's got very
  • Symphony of the Night vibes for those
  • that that love that game like I do in
  • its design and its whole aesthetic it's
  • got a very unique time mechanic to it
  • and if you're just a fan of Metroidvania
  • genre like I am you have to play it yeah
  • that's that's a strong title that's very
  • strong well I'm gonna move on to the
  • number eight spot for me personally and
  • that's gonna be Forza horizon for buy
  • playground games this was in my opinion
  • a complete masterpiece um and again it's
  • one of those titles that deserves to be
  • talked about it as the game of the year
  • but there was just so many games and for
  • someone most of us I think all of us
  • support multiple consoles here it's it's
  • hard to try to put you know different
  • games in there in there places for me
  • number eight is going to be Forza
  • horizon for neo mental I want to go to
  • you what was your number eight game for
  • 2018
  • well shockingly enough fallout 76 ok
  • talk about it reason wise you know
  • listen it's got a lot of problems um but
  • I love fallout I mean when fallout 3
  • came out I played that game for like a
  • year straight like it was insane so I
  • mean I I do like the ultimate history
  • games um there was enough there as I
  • played it that made me want to play more
  • and it's unfortunately one of those
  • games where you just kind of hope that
  • they're gonna get it together
  • you know they've been patching stuff
  • like left and right I really want them
  • to home you know fix some of the glitch
  • and stuff and a lot of the people at
  • duping items because it crashes the
  • server constantly but when you're kind
  • of in there and the story that they laid
  • out it just makes you want to go further
  • so I mean like you know I'll probably
  • rent it again and past that you know I
  • don't know I mean if they fix more of it
  • I'll keep playing but there is enough
  • there that definitely want me you know
  • that had me wanting more um I just wish
  • you just did not shit the way it did
  • well I mean listen that you're entitled
  • to your opinion and you know it's not
  • wrong or right i mean listen that's
  • that's the you know it's for me and for
  • a lot of people it's a big disappoint
  • but for people that put the time in they
  • enjoyed it and that's really what it
  • comes down to i want to go to jay the
  • destroyer what comes in at your strong
  • number eight for 2018 completely under
  • the radar Fist of the North Star lost
  • paradise Oh talk about it I did I knew
  • that was out but I did not play it's a
  • game it's running off the Yakuza engine
  • it looks awesome it's fun it's uh it
  • gives you that like warm fuzzy classic
  • Sega feel to a lot of it it's a mix of
  • Shenmue on top of it it's got a lot and
  • that's my favorite game of all time so
  • that's why it's number eight and a lot
  • of people haven't played it if you have
  • a chance to check it out check it out
  • it's killer it would be a great game for
  • wanting to give away for you know their
  • their their PSN free games that would be
  • a good one I would look to play and last
  • but certainly not least Jay the retro
  • gamer what comes in at number eight for
  • 2018 for you alright boys and girls
  • let's have a seat for this one my number
  • eight is Red Dead Redemption
  • - that's okay talk about it there isn't
  • I mean I've said this in Prior game of
  • the year dinners between us that that I
  • thought that Red Dead Redemption 2 was a
  • lock to be my personal game of the year
  • I love I just absolutely adore the
  • and just my impressions that I'm about
  • to give it just from basically three or
  • four hours of playing the game that
  • could change widely because I am gonna
  • play it some more but this is where it
  • kind of ended up I mean there's it's the
  • most intricately designed world that
  • I've ever played without question the
  • sense of immersion in that game is just
  • simply off the charts it's gorgeous
  • and in the few story beats that I played
  • it just the writing seems like it's
  • gonna be really good but what I didn't
  • like was there was just too many systems
  • in this game and everything you I mean
  • there's so much you had to learn in
  • order to fully play this game that it's
  • just I I kind of pick up a control I
  • just want to kind of enjoy something
  • it's too realistic okay the fact that
  • they suck so many years and doing they
  • couldn't develop a fast travel system at
  • least a proper traffic fast travel
  • system thank you they feel as though
  • they did that they didn't respect my
  • time now I know Rockstar that was their
  • intention that was in their design of
  • the game so I don't fault them for it
  • but me personally you know not to
  • mention it just has the normal Rockstar
  • you know control like it's a little
  • janky to play in my opinion and it
  • forgets what makes games fun which other
  • games on this list
  • do not forget alright too long I think
  • you know the fact that it's like 60 I
  • think it's 60 hours 60 Plus hours yeah
  • or in which look is great but you know I
  • just didn't got that kind of time so
  • listen I don't think anyone really has
  • that saying what I do I'm kind of
  • retired but it's okay that's enough
  • that's a horse of another color yeah I
  • gotta talk about number seven now here's
  • the thing folks I don't need to explain
  • my choices I don't think anyone on this
  • panel does I know that I'm gonna raise a
  • few eyebrows with number seven it
  • actually was a little bit it could have
  • it could have fallen to nine or ten
  • because it it completely fell off a
  • cliff for me personally I play games and
  • I rate and base my opinion on games on
  • how much fun I have
  • of course if you're putting in 60 70 100
  • plus hours into a game you enjoy the
  • game for me number seven it might be a
  • surprise for some Red Dead Redemption -
  • by Rockstar Games co-op falls into the
  • number seven spot and it's a game I
  • don't know if I'll ever beat here's the
  • problem the game is gorgeous it looks
  • amazing on the X runs the best on the X
  • we all know that we've seen the videos
  • right the game tells a story it's
  • incredible its immersive but here's my
  • problem
  • it's slow as hell to do anything just
  • take so much time that it just takes
  • away the fun getting from one end to a
  • mission to the other could be as much as
  • 60 to 90 minutes and you know what as
  • much as the game looks good and has a
  • great writing great voice acting it just
  • takes too long to do anything so it fell
  • off a cliff for me I'm at the end or in
  • the middle of chapter 4 I don't know if
  • I'm ever gonna beat the game maybe
  • sometimes down the line III don't know
  • but I want to get to neo mental what was
  • your number 7 game for 2018 Red Dead
  • Redemption there you go talk about it
  • and same thing I mean you know listen
  • the time I try to get into the beginning
  • was rough you know horses
  • listen I'm playing destiny where I'm got
  • like friggin starships and whatnot and
  • then I gotta slow down on a friggin
  • horse I'm like yeah listen it's a bit
  • much um you know it's Grand Theft Auto
  • 200 years ago so uh but I will say the
  • story's amazing am I gonna beat it I'll
  • probably beat it like summer time
  • because there's just not enough for me
  • to keep running back to it um you know
  • two months away from Division two I got
  • another shield I gotta finish before I'm
  • done with that so I just don't think I
  • got the time for it and the story enough
  • in there has not made me go back to
  • finish it so I'm in no rush nothing in
  • it has made me want to keep going
  • and I just don't think that the general
  • population is gonna keep going crazy for
  • Red Dead Redemption and I think once
  • it's done I don't think it's gonna have
  • an online presence like when it's that
  • photo did so no I don't think so either
  • no that's a strong choice I have to give
  • a shout-out to Bourne distracted and he
  • says something really interesting and
  • very true
  • he says it's nice to hear games selected
  • that aren't part of the in-crowd type
  • and I absolutely agree
  • I don't think status quo does games
  • justice I think it uh you know being
  • being part of the popular opinion is not
  • something I strive for I always like to
  • walk on the outside of the line and I'm
  • glad you agree and but I have to talk to
  • now je the destroyer what comes in at
  • number 7 for you for 2018 octopus
  • traveler strong very strong tied RPG I
  • played a whole year
  • good great graphics just to be you know
  • on the train coming home from the city
  • and be able to play that killer totally
  • kicks ass and a lot of people didn't uh
  • I mean it got like great reviews and
  • everything but unlike top ten lists it
  • like a lot of people that hit like right
  • around 11 or 12
  • for me it's seven well it's a strong
  • title let's not forget that it is a
  • switch exclusive which is a big deal or
  • there's been talk and rumors of them
  • working on the second one already which
  • I hope did they do I think that the
  • switch has a big enough audience and I
  • hope that the cos sales continue strong
  • for that game but Jays a retro gamer
  • what is your number seven pick just one
  • note that octopi travelers another other
  • than Detroit is the other game that I
  • wish I would have gotten to it's just a
  • game speaks to the the retro gamer and
  • me cuz I still love RPGs back in the day
  • so hopefully I get to that but as for my
  • number seven pick it is the messenger
  • nice strong title dude and again a game
  • that got a lot of positive buzz when it
  • first came out but it's again one of
  • those under-the-radar type things it's
  • got that very 8-bit Nintendo ninja
  • gayden like field
  • the platforming which is you know it's
  • it's a game with the right amount of
  • challenge but yet rewarding it's not
  • something that's frustrating at least to
  • me it's very you know it's got a very
  • cool retro inspired design that you know
  • spoiler does change from 8-bit the
  • 16-bit in the middle of it and it has
  • you switching back and forth which is
  • kind of a cool mechanic you know some
  • call it a Metroidvania but it really
  • mean that element doesn't kick in for at
  • least half the game and then when it
  • does it doesn't really feel like one in
  • its truest sense but the other thing
  • that gets you know overlooked on that is
  • that some of the writing in that game is
  • genuinely funny you know from especially
  • in the boss fight so that's my number
  • seven it's just one of those fun games
  • to play well that that's a strong title
  • dude I mean you can't argue with that
  • well we're gonna move on to number six
  • and for me
  • Detroit become human by Quantic Dream's
  • I've said it I'm not gonna regurgitate
  • what I talked about the underlying
  • racial tension in regards to androids
  • versus humans of the graphics my god
  • they are just so good it handles very
  • well it is probably the best looking
  • game on the ps4 I'm into those types of
  • games if you are again I will highly
  • suggest please giving it a look if you
  • don't want to buy go to red box rent it
  • you might absolutely love it but neo
  • mental what is your strong number six
  • for 2018 for nice yeah racing shockingly
  • it wasn't hard because I just kind of
  • feel like I'm for it like I like the
  • whole game pass thing but um you know I
  • think that I think they should have just
  • sold it I think some of those games I
  • think it kind of cuts the the enjoyment
  • out of it um you know you want to drop
  • your money and kind of sink some time
  • into it me I had no no real desire to
  • keep playing it because I could play it
  • whenever um but you know I love to do
  • the graphics on that it's insane um you
  • know I like
  • Racing other people's times and stuff
  • like that so I mean you know it's more
  • the same but it's still a great game I
  • love it strong neo uh not to cut you off
  • but are you saying if I caught this
  • correctly that you liked it slightly
  • less because it's in-game pass yeah
  • here's the thing I don't get that
  • well here's the thing it's like if I buy
  • it I'm invested you know what I I spent
  • this money I think that was probably my
  • problem in Assassin's Creed Odyssey 2
  • I've rented it from the library and you
  • know quick pause your local library does
  • have current video games you can put
  • games on hold
  • depending on your library district if
  • there's multiple libraries in district
  • and the game is at a different library
  • find out if they have a whole system
  • that will transfer it over to you
  • because I've rented Assassin's Creed and
  • fallout 6 it was free and you can bring
  • it back and run it again so I mean if
  • you're not buying a game you're not
  • really invested into it so I mean for me
  • if I didn't drop my 60 was a guy well
  • it's there I'm not really rushing to go
  • play it um then when you're playing it I
  • don't know I can't really I can't
  • describe it into words but if I didn't
  • drop the money on it it's just there I'm
  • I could care less not while I'm really
  • enjoying it I know I can actually
  • understand what you're saying it's
  • almost like a sense of accountability if
  • you will you know you spent the money so
  • you feel in the back of your mind that
  • you absolutely have to play this game
  • because you bought it whereas it's
  • sitting in game paths are you like man
  • you know it's there and I'll get to it
  • when I get to it and maybe maybe there
  • isn't enough you know that you don't
  • feel like the pressure of having to play
  • it I can understand but real quick I
  • want us welcome and also say thank you
  • to Errol chatter in the chat who's not
  • only enjoying the show was nice enough
  • to drop two dollars in the super chat
  • dude thank you very much that is
  • extremely kind of you and greatly
  • appreciated but Jay the destroyer what
  • is your number six for
  • 2018 my number-6 is uh it's destiny to
  • forsaken if I could use that one out
  • dude go with yourself talk about it well
  • time out time out down on today's
  • because usually before we wouldn't put
  • stuff in there like that so I purposely
  • kept mine out because it get tired of
  • getting yelled at every year I'm sorry
  • that new release that was a that was a
  • new release
  • yes its DLC but I'm not a destiny player
  • so I had a goal through everything to
  • get to the Forsaken stuff I had to
  • download every buy every stupid DLC um I
  • enjoyed the crap out of it but I will
  • say that you know there's this serious
  • destiny players I am NOT a serious
  • destiny player but I loved it for the
  • time that I'm I played it and the time
  • I'm still playing it I mean I'm not
  • logging in like a hundred hours a week I
  • got a job I got whatever I got a life I
  • don't know no offense to me a mental but
  • um sorry about that man but the time I
  • played it I loved it and I loved it
  • enough passed my you know ten nine eight
  • and seven game so whatever you want us
  • to say you want to say it's DLC doesn't
  • count whatever it's something I played
  • this year and I loved it strong title
  • you actually shocked me because we know
  • that you're not a die-hard decimal
  • player so it actually is is a big deal
  • because that's how monumental it was for
  • you as a gamer I want to go to Jay the
  • retro gamer what is your number six for
  • 2018 yeah for the record anything can be
  • on our personal top 10 list whether it's
  • DLC expansions what-have-you it's just
  • when it comes to game of the year as a
  • group acceleration that's where it gets
  • a little fuzzy yeah little quasi but we
  • don't ever expect that to happen so
  • whatever you played in 2018 you want to
  • include go for it do me a console so my
  • number six we go with shadow of the Tomb
  • Raider
  • nice that is wrong you know like you
  • know full disclosure the other two games
  • were our group game of the years in the
  • past both yeah and rise the Tomb Raider
  • and it does feel this game does feel a
  • lot like the previous two iteration
  • which is a good thing and it's a
  • testament to how good 2018 was that this
  • game which I really loved wasn't even
  • close to being my favorite game of the
  • year the fact that if this game
  • independently allows you to modify the
  • difficulty whether it's the combat or
  • the exploration or the puzzles you know
  • you can change make the combat harder
  • and yet the puzzles easier which I
  • personally liked the pacing of the game
  • is really good you know knowing how much
  • exploration I needed before giving me a
  • puzzle a combat encounter just mix
  • things up you know so nothing really
  • gets too old I mean I'm not a stealth
  • guy but it you know it's always
  • satisfying when you can kind of go into
  • a crowd of enemies and just kind of you
  • know kind of pick them off one by one
  • predator style yes it was great which is
  • always good now the upgrades you know
  • tree simply doesn't feel as good as the
  • previous two games which is why I wasn't
  • hire and plus it had like I said it did
  • have the sameness same feel as the other
  • two games but overall I really did enjoy
  • it I'm strong has a strong title and for
  • me coming in at number five is far cry 5
  • by Ubisoft I have to say something about
  • these these Ubisoft collectathon games I
  • really dig and far cry man had great
  • weapons it had great vehicles fantastic
  • strong deep deep story really awesome
  • bad guys of or of what makes a good Far
  • Cry game good you know we know that the
  • next one is an ax continuation of what
  • happens at the end of Far Cry 5 I
  • absolutely loved it I put really
  • hundreds of hours into it and I cannot
  • wait to come back to that very soon as a
  • matter of fact new dawn I believe is one
  • of the big games releasing in the first
  • quarter of 2019
  • neo mental what is your number five game
  • for 2018 I'm actually gonna ask you to
  • skip me because I got a call audible
  • thanks to that guy over there ah slide
  • me past or I could just read over my
  • list real quick yep yeah book will come
  • right back to you Jay the destroyer what
  • is your number five game for 2018
  • Detroit ice awesome graphics great game
  • play I don't know you know what else do
  • I I love all the Quantic Dream games yep
  • you do all of them and I think this one
  • was the best and certainly graphically
  • it was probably the top three
  • graphically next to like red dead and
  • God walk and if you want to throw number
  • like Shadow the Tomb Raider and they're
  • also I mean it was up there it was just
  • an awesome game awesome game yeah I I
  • absolutely agree strong trunk pick
  • we're gonna go to Jay the retro gamer
  • what is your number 5 for 2018 yeah my
  • number five is Assassin's Creed Odyssey
  • wow it's really do I'm shocked
  • wait you know it just you know there
  • have been multiple game multiple
  • thousands Creed games that have been my
  • game of the year I put in at least a
  • hundred hours into AC origins I
  • destroyed that game on this particular
  • list
  • it's the biggest victim of just not
  • having enough time on my part just
  • coming out out of the wrong time with so
  • many other great games and like I you
  • know I just there was some franchise
  • fatigue on my part because I had played
  • so much of origins and look forward to
  • finishing it and you know those of you
  • know those who are listening who played
  • Ubisoft games you just know what to
  • expect from it you know it just kind of
  • taps into that OCD nature of kind of
  • checking off the boxes and collecting
  • stuff I do look forward to finishing it
  • but you know I just think the other
  • games on my list or stronger so okay
  • that's a good point listen that that's
  • what what that's why we're doing this
  • everyone has a voice in an opinion and
  • it matters and we're going to come back
  • to neo mental what is your number five
  • game that you had to shift around yeah I
  • so my new five
  • is now gonna be shot over to me okay
  • strong pick yeah I loved it um you know
  • I like what they're doing with Tomb
  • Raider um shifting it to a more thematic
  • style to it um you know the game was
  • pretty solid there's a few stupid points
  • in that game like I hated the part where
  • um you lose all your guns and the guys
  • and stuff like that you take them out
  • and don't pick up their shotguns I'm
  • like I don't understand what the point
  • of this is the guy's got a perfectly
  • good working shotgun body just pick it
  • up pick it up so I mean I whenever stuff
  • like that takes me out of the game
  • really stressed it stresses me out cuz
  • I'm just sitting there yelling out like
  • to pick up the shotgun like it's dinner
  • like oh I had so many times that happens
  • I get they're trying to like force the
  • narrative there but you know but it was
  • a solid game and beat it I loved it for
  • it yeah he paid for it alright okay good
  • very well
  • and I wasn't game past it causing me
  • problems today wait I see alright well
  • listen let's move on to number four and
  • my pick is shadow of the Tomb Raider by
  • square-enix
  • I absolutely love this series it's
  • probably the best exploration type
  • gaming I've done in this generation I
  • think what they have done with this game
  • the reinvention of the wheel if you will
  • is is is second to none I'm hoping and
  • praying that this game sold well enough
  • where we can get another trilogy and we
  • can continue playing as Laura Croft but
  • I want to go to neo mental again what is
  • your number four title for 2018 well now
  • I'd have to be forsaken you know they've
  • had so many problems going into forsaken
  • you haven't was pretty much violent but
  • knowing that Kate was gonna get killed
  • you know when you start talking about
  • thematics and stuff especially the
  • amount of hours that we've all put it me
  • and you were put into it into the game
  • you know we've been attached to these
  • characters it's been a you know
  • three year yep just watching it a lot of
  • the game was just like holy crap and I'm
  • fixing the problems I mean forsaken was
  • there taking King so I found stuff
  • [Music]
  • you know it'll be interesting to see
  • what the next couple years have to have
  • for the game but yeah that was well I
  • mean a lot of people don't know this
  • my brother neo mental had put over 4,000
  • hours into destiny probably well over
  • that between the both the PlayStation 4
  • and the Xbox one other than breathing
  • well he figured it out bro you know you
  • see me online one of my 12 back then
  • what was I what does mrs. neo mental
  • think of 4,000 hours spending I think
  • like 2000 hours with her and 2000 hours
  • with with destiny listen listen I have
  • an amazing wife and when we're in the
  • living room and she's watching TV on the
  • big screen I have a system selector and
  • I have my screen right on the side so
  • I'm spending time with her I'm spending
  • time with destiny oh that's well to
  • listen it worked out because they're
  • still married they're happily married PS
  • by the way but I want to move on to Jay
  • the destroyer what is your number four
  • game for 2018 well I guess maybe my
  • marriage would still be together if I
  • spent four thousand hours yeah
  • well then again because of that I now
  • have an arcade in my house I never could
  • have had before well it's a win-win for
  • everyone
  • wherever the Scarb new children I just
  • want you to do that okay number four is
  • a shadow of the Tomb Raider it's really
  • not much to say about it it's uh you
  • know more of the same from from from the
  • last one I don't care it's still great
  • and it's awesome
  • I I played a ton of it and if you
  • haven't played it you need to yeah up
  • there with everybody else it's up there
  • with the Detroits
  • it's up there with the red day
  • it's up there with the god of War's it
  • deserves to be up there even though on a
  • lot of people's lists it didn't get the
  • love it should've but there you go
  • okay well that's that's a great point J
  • the retro gamer what is your number four
  • pick for 2018 my number four pick is far
  • cry 5 strong strong title again another
  • Ruby soft game I just love the setting
  • of this that it wasn't often some far
  • exotic place and a story premise I just
  • I just love that yeah that even though
  • it doesn't always hold up you know
  • I have this small notion that I was
  • expecting some thought well-thought-out
  • examination of a cultist leader and the
  • cult and then they gave me a mission
  • where I had a rescued cheeseburger the
  • bear and I realized that all of its just
  • bull and it's just a backdrop for the
  • usual four cries a meanness but you know
  • it does have some cool character moments
  • on it it's just I'm a huge mark for them
  • and this is just another great game in
  • the series they did release of DLC packs
  • which I touched I think the first one
  • hours of darkness which was good but I
  • haven't gotten to the rest of them that
  • was my number that's a strong pick and
  • number three for me for 2018 is
  • spider-man from insomniac games
  • literally it's so good that it could
  • have been in the top it could have been
  • my game of the year or the next this and
  • the next two games trying to place these
  • particular titles was extremely
  • literally misses by grains of grass
  • that's how close that they were I have
  • I'm three trophies away from the
  • platinum I have not played any of the
  • DLC because there's literally been too
  • much to play I will because I'm glad I'm
  • actually kind of glad I'm I'm gonna play
  • it in one shot without having to wait
  • for the other DLC just announced two
  • days ago Marvel is once again doing some
  • more DLC work for insomniac spider-man
  • in the form of the Fantastic Four DLC no
  • particulars were revealed other than
  • they will be in this game
  • and I'm excited because you know the big
  • you know hop up if you will when it
  • comes to Sony games is it their one and
  • done and this proves that that is not in
  • fact the case but neo mental what is
  • your number three title for 2018 god
  • whoa strong strong title yeah I mean you
  • know it was a it was a great ride I had
  • promised some of the mechanics because
  • there's a lot of times where like I just
  • feel it wasn't keeping up but the story
  • was amazing I think the change from hack
  • and slash to more of a story driven RPG
  • element was done awesome it was amazing
  • they did a great job when I gained the
  • voice actors were amazing it was a
  • strong title and he was you know he
  • played it on the hardest difficulty it
  • was hard as balls you're just a great
  • game it's a really great game
  • I enjoy I can't wait to the next one
  • yeah I'm happy that it received the
  • accolades it deserves Sony Santa Monica
  • had a real difficult task in front of
  • them reinventing the wheel what they did
  • was nothing short of amazing but Jay the
  • destroyer what is your number three pick
  • this is a game I did not pay for but I
  • loved nonetheless for this game nice
  • matter whether I paid a dollar for it or
  • $60.00 for it I played it the same way I
  • played it like a person who was in love
  • with it one of the best racers ever I
  • don't know what to tell you it's it's
  • really it's up it really is up there
  • with some of the greatest ever so if you
  • haven't checked it out check it out in
  • the game pass and you'll love it yeah
  • yeah absolutely again playground games
  • knocked it out of the park they proved
  • to everyone that you can still continue
  • to evolve games that are in their you
  • know in their late parts of their lives
  • you know the three is the four is the
  • fives and it was just amazing from start
  • to finish I agree with you
  • Jay the retro
  • what is your number three pick sir well
  • my number three pick is also by number
  • one retro inspired game of the year and
  • that is guacamelee - nice strong pick
  • for the ps4 again I think a lot of
  • people are not gonna give this game the
  • credit it deserves in light of
  • everything else which is great this year
  • it is it took what was great about the
  • original and just made it more
  • challenging but it's one of those games
  • where you just pick up a controller and
  • the controls of the game just feel so
  • satisfying and responsive and the way it
  • integrates all of the traversal powers
  • in the game and the design is just
  • perfection it's got 20 moments it's got
  • funny characters and yes there are a few
  • frustrating sections in the game but
  • just never enough to distract from the
  • overall package ya know that that's good
  • that actually was just announced for the
  • Xbox platform
  • I believe it's coming out at the end of
  • the month that I'm going to be getting
  • that it's a it's normally a $20 game but
  • I think they have it on sale for $15.99
  • so if you like Metro vanie as if you
  • enjoyed cuacamole one I think it's
  • something everyone should support that
  • company is fantastic and we're gonna
  • move on to the number two game for me
  • personally and I'm telling you it
  • literally missed out by a hair and that
  • is God of War from Sony Santa Monica I
  • called this as my game of the year in
  • 2017 I'm not sorry that it's not game of
  • the year and I'm also sorry that it's
  • not game of the year I think that is a
  • complete masterpiece I don't know what
  • to say other than if you do if you have
  • a ps4 my god please get out there
  • support this company support the
  • reinvention of Kratos it is an
  • unbelievable story from start to finish
  • well over 30 plus hours no DLC
  • unfortunately I think that's my only
  • dissatisfaction with the title we talked
  • about this on gaming news at noon with
  • salty and boom where Cory bar log has
  • his DLC he had planned was so big that
  • he was called insane by his coworkers
  • I'm hoping that they release it as a
  • side story very similar to lost legacy
  • for Uncharted I would gladly pay 30
  • bucks to get another side story of
  • Kratos and his son but you know what neo
  • mental what is your number 2 game for
  • 2018
  • these spitter may I've never heard of it
  • spider-man okay there you go yeah I
  • loved it you know it was a really tight
  • game there's a little bit of a learning
  • curve with the controls for but once you
  • really got into it I just I loved it
  • look the graphics were just insane
  • there's a tight game I haven't got the
  • DLC yet I'm gonna probably scoop those
  • up this weekend and run into him but I
  • loved everything about it I think it was
  • a great direction I loved the fact that
  • they threw him into the the regular
  • Marvel Universe great game great game
  • I'm well I mean listen ed says that's a
  • strong pick that's a strong pick and it
  • deserves to be there what they were able
  • to do with this game it was nothing
  • short of amazing Jay the destroyer what
  • is your number to pick for 2018 my
  • number to pick is spider-man nice nice
  • and I'm gonna say it's probably one of
  • the best it's one of the best superhero
  • games ever and that beginning that first
  • 20 minutes with the second you jump out
  • the window is amazing absolutely amazing
  • and insomniac really hit it out of the
  • park with that one graphically amazing
  • there's really that's it's it's it could
  • easily be my number one but it's not but
  • there you go - my number - oh well -
  • it's a strong pick and last but
  • certainly not least Jade the retro gamer
  • what is your number to pick for 2018 my
  • number 2 pig boy is God of War strong
  • yeah I get a preface this by saying like
  • the first two games were both personal
  • games of the Year winners for me it's
  • only word to describe this game is epic
  • yes it is a stunning achievement I think
  • one of the things that gets overlooked
  • is in the design of the game quarry bar
  • log designed it so that it is one
  • continuous camera shot throughout the
  • whole thing unless you die at any point
  • in it and which I don't think a lot of
  • people appreciate just how much that
  • affected the immersiveness in the story
  • and it we said this before but it takes
  • Kratos a one-dimensional character and
  • really kind of Fletch's him out and just
  • the core combat mechanics are just so
  • satisfying I personally had a little bit
  • of a problem with some of the upgrade
  • trees and a little was a little bit
  • confusing at first so I kind of put it
  • down for a couple of weeks and then came
  • back to it but when I did I went through
  • it the story was just phenomenal and
  • just there's something that happens
  • midway through the game which if you're
  • old God of War fan just gave me the
  • chills because I was surprised that it
  • happened but you know I just I just I
  • can't say enough great things about it's
  • just an amazing amazing game well yeah
  • absolutely I would agree 100% and now
  • we're moving on to everyone's game of
  • the year 2018 for me personally I think
  • I've said it half a dozen times live on
  • the air so it's not going to come off as
  • a surprise to anyone but for me it's
  • Assassin's Creed Odyssey it is a game
  • that I like I said in the opening I've
  • put nearly 200 hours of gameplay into
  • it's something that I could not put down
  • I loved everything about it the weapon
  • design was fantastic it just was a game
  • that told an amazing story from two
  • different perspectives
  • and it's just it's it's probably one of
  • the finest in the series it brought back
  • the ship battles that a lot of people
  • really enjoyed I enjoyed sailing the
  • high seas and fighting pirates and other
  • you know ships you came across I thought
  • it was a crank I tell you one of the
  • things that you know that I really
  • enjoyed about the game is its design on
  • there are so many backstories that you
  • could miss unless you're looking for
  • them especially when you talk about some
  • of the you know some
  • epic creature battles that you can have
  • some of the best I've had in gaming
  • hunting down these these these creatures
  • and getting the backstory of them more
  • fantastic but neo mental I want to get
  • it what is your game of the year for
  • 2018 surprise surprise Detroit become
  • human ah strong pick to talk about it
  • yeah I love the game I mean I beat it
  • probably like nine different times
  • there's only two trophies I need to go
  • back and do then it's only because you
  • have to like you have to pick a certain
  • path to get certain things to unlock
  • like this magazines or whatever so I
  • just need like two little things to do
  • and then I've got it platinum I loved it
  • I loved playing it constantly I'm seeing
  • a different path Cynthia seeing how
  • everything shook out um you know like I
  • said before the voice acting was amazing
  • the graphics were tight story was solid
  • you know there's a lot of parallels
  • going on I just loved it you know they
  • just really gave us a solid game I had
  • not one single complaint about the game
  • not not a single one I want another one
  • at this point I know there was a lot of
  • process of developer which is horribly
  • here but you know I loved the game the
  • game was tight I really wish they would
  • have gotten one idea
  • yeah that's that's that's a strong pick
  • we talked about this privately and I
  • knew it was going to be up there for you
  • you had you loved this game he loved all
  • the side stories and the choices and the
  • right and wrong answers that you could
  • pick and it just really changed the
  • story when you made a certain choice so
  • I played this game walking on my
  • tippy-toes because I didn't want to make
  • a wrong choice especially cuz I cared
  • about the character so much ah but Jay
  • the destroyer what is your game of the
  • year for 2018 my number one game I've
  • probably played about 6,000 hours of
  • this game I've actually been playing it
  • since the moment it was released and
  • it's done I'm still playing it right now
  • actually in the background is it damn
  • 6,001
  • no it's not it's not bendy is God of War
  • I don't write great Nick I think if the
  • closest for me this year that you could
  • get to a perfect you know me game
  • everything I love in gaming you know big
  • graphics epic story this was it and they
  • just the technical achievement that it
  • was was completely off the charts
  • so I think we're gonna have a problem
  • this year with what the number one game
  • is because it looks like yeah a little
  • confusing but uh God of War for me there
  • really was nothing even remotely close
  • to it nothing okay that I mean it's a
  • strong pick it should have been my game
  • of the year it got edged out by like I
  • said a hair and last but certainly not
  • least J the retro gamer what is your
  • personal game of the year for 2018 yeah
  • I'm about to make things really
  • interesting for the group game of the
  • year because my number one game of 2018
  • without question bendy is not business
  • though that is my number one game was
  • Marvel's spider-man good strong that's a
  • strong pick dude then really is you know
  • from the outset spider-man just has an
  • unfair advantage on the list because I'm
  • already a huge spider-man fan and
  • there's a lot of great spider-man games
  • that have come before it
  • but within sought you know Sam Niang at
  • the helm you know they could have just
  • you know put out just another good
  • spider-man game but they made one that
  • just knocked it out of the park
  • the only better superhero game I've ever
  • played was Batman Arkham City and mine
  • yep the game is not without its flaws I
  • mean it's def it's not even the best
  • designed game of the year you again when
  • you compare it to God of War but it just
  • it's how it seamlessly kind of combines
  • all of the you know aspects that you
  • expect from a spider-man game
  • it's got great traversal it's got great
  • combat and has like a Batman Arkham feel
  • to it as
  • you know as well as combined with it you
  • know the Ratchet and Clank games yes yes
  • well the story and the voice
  • performances normally you know like some
  • of these games you can kind of almost
  • skip through a lot of that stuff but I
  • genuinely was invested in the story I
  • mean the mission design for the most
  • part was varied interesting though I
  • could have done without some of the
  • obligatory stealth missions in the game
  • the collectibles in this game like you
  • know if you're a spider-man fan or just
  • fun yeah there's a lot of fun this was
  • insomniac first crack at spider-man I
  • can't imagine what they would do with a
  • sequel and in the end it was the only
  • game of the year that I Platinum's and I
  • simply had more fun playing this game
  • than I did anything else so you know
  • that's what you know this is all about
  • so you know I mean listen again that
  • that's what that's what we play games
  • for sure you you know you know being a
  • part of social media you want to be in a
  • node so you're gonna play something and
  • everyone's talking about but at the end
  • of the day when it comes to lists you
  • want to put something on there that you
  • had the most hash tag fun with and I
  • think that's important so what I'm gonna
  • do now is I know that J the retro gamer
  • has to do you know work around on the
  • point system to see what is going to be
  • the group game of the year based on the
  • points on where certain games fell in
  • the list but we're gonna we're gonna
  • just talk about and this is the last
  • topic of the of the today's show we're
  • running past a little little past 90
  • minutes so just bear with us it's gonna
  • be what we're expecting in 2019 now 2019
  • is shaping up to potentially outpace
  • 2018 and even saying that out loud is
  • crazy considering the list that we just
  • put together the first three months are
  • not only an assault on the wallet but to
  • actually have the time to play
  • everything may also be an added problem
  • let's discuss what we are expecting in
  • 2019 and what we think will be in the
  • running for game of the year 2019 and as
  • J the retro continues his very difficult
  • task of putting this numbers thing
  • together I'm gonna go first and say this
  • I've already called it on numerous shows
  • I'm going to say it on this show oh my
  • of the year 2019 is and will be without
  • any doubt Resident Evil 2 the remake I
  • play the demo it is a masterpiece
  • Resident Evil 2 as many people in the
  • community know is my favorite game of
  • all time I think that this game actually
  • might move into the number one spot
  • pulling out the 19 1998 version into the
  • second spot I am looking forward to this
  • game I have the collector's edition no
  • surprise there I will be doing an
  • unboxing on my channel I'm looking
  • forward to this game I think that the
  • half an hour demo even though it was
  • cruel of Capcom to do that I would still
  • be playing it I'd be playing it a half
  • hour after half hour I have after half
  • hour trying to get that further further
  • further but you know what it was a tease
  • many people were sold on the demo I
  • think that was their their point to
  • other games that are gonna be ongoing
  • open-world multiplayer games that have
  • me tickled pink are the division 2 which
  • neo mental and our crew will be getting
  • down day 1 big shout out to them and of
  • course the the new game from Bioware
  • anthem looks to be absolutely stunning
  • neo mental and I are going to be playing
  • this you know smiling ear to ear because
  • we're both Robo tech guys were both
  • transformer guys and this is as close to
  • a game you can get using mechs that you
  • can you know you know that and again we
  • like these collective thongs we like
  • these looter shooters and from what I
  • hear behind those behind the scenes
  • we're gonna get some uh you know
  • microtransactions not a dirty word for
  • cosmetics and you'll be able to dress up
  • your you know javelin in any way you
  • want so I'm excited for that but I want
  • to go to neo mental 2019 is poised to be
  • a big year for gaming again possibly
  • bigger than 2018 what are you most
  • looking forward to in the coming year
  • I mean first and foremost division 2 you
  • know I already got the week vacation
  • weeks already in for it I'm gonna be
  • there like the second the friggin thing
  • drops to download
  • and I'm gonna kill it that entire week
  • you know I think most of the crews
  • already got their sick days already so I
  • can't wait it is gonna be insane um that
  • for me is like the that right there
  • don't aim looking forward to everything
  • else can is is just you know like I
  • don't even know how anthem is gonna roll
  • because the anthem is gonna come on
  • first we're gonna be you know playing
  • that like crazy and then once the
  • division comes it's getting this
  • forgotten about it so um you know
  • there's a lot of stuff come on 2019 um
  • you know so between those two those are
  • like the big ones I'm curious to know
  • you know how this whole bunch of things
  • gonna shake out I mean we're not gonna
  • see anything affecting that until
  • probably another another year and a half
  • um but I'm curious to see how that's
  • gonna change change their year for me
  • right now I mean that's really it I
  • actually I played the Resident Evil demo
  • last night which was out of character
  • for me because I played it in the pitch
  • black you know the graph is too tight
  • the movements a little off but I think I
  • may actually pick it up um
  • do it it doesn't have spiders so we're
  • good not to yet there was a scene this
  • there's a moon was supposed to have the
  • spiders in - okay well then you're gonna
  • you get you're gonna have to have
  • someone play for you my brother does not
  • like spiders but like most people but
  • big spiders that are eight feet tall
  • that will eat you in one bite I guess
  • would would would scare anybody
  • yeah pretty much right now I mean like I
  • said Division two is just that's life
  • right there so okay well that's listen
  • we're we're on the same page we played
  • the shit out of Division one thousands
  • of hours I cannot wait to get into - I
  • know people like Def Jam BAM and a few
  • guys on the iron Lords podcast cannot
  • wait to get down as well as yes there's
  • plenty of people in the community I'm
  • going to be playing with I cannot wait
  • slow-mo backslap is also a division
  • and we were already you know say that
  • we're gonna team up so that's gonna be
  • fun
  • J the destroyer 2019 besides retro
  • arcade machines coming out what are you
  • looking forward to or to retro arcade
  • machines like final fight yes like mk2
  • but besides that you know all the big
  • games coming out I get that your
  • divisions and your anthems and this and
  • that for me and I know there's no it's
  • probably gonna be more 2020 but if Sega
  • could get their shit together if where
  • is Shenmue 3 yes that out and Streets of
  • Rage the new Streets of Rage looks
  • awning love that so that that that's for
  • me it's not always gonna be the most
  • popular game or the most you know you
  • know the like I said the anthems and the
  • divisions because those are gonna come
  • out those gonna be great you know but
  • those little gate looks smaller games
  • and I'm expecting nothing from Shenmue 3
  • 0 my expectations are low so hopefully
  • we'll see the light of that in 2019 yes
  • and real quick before I let you go and
  • because I care about you as a brother
  • please explain to us what the hell bendy
  • is bendy is a game that it's a digital
  • game you could get that on anything it's
  • on the Xbox and it's cut into five
  • chapters I think and for whatever reason
  • my kids love it it's called bendy and
  • the ink machine it looks good it's it's
  • if you it's it's like a very kid horror
  • game if you want to call it that
  • it's a kid-friendly horror game okay
  • listen it's got a nice art style and
  • it's 20 bucks okay and then you love it
  • for some reason well you know what I had
  • to save you from the the murder that
  • would have taken place next time your
  • son came over because he has been in the
  • chat really championing this game and I
  • like to interact with the chat you guys
  • know that and Jay the retro gamer now I
  • know that you're hard at work at this
  • number crunch that you're doing but for
  • you personally what are you looking
  • forward to in 2019
  • you know I know Craig's obvious answer
  • at Dan's obvious answers to no one's
  • surprise and mine will be to absolutely
  • no one surprise my 2019 most anticipated
  • game is Orion the will of the West sure
  • strong title do it real strong yeah it's
  • probably the original is probably my
  • favorite game of all time I was
  • immensely proud during e3 to watch see
  • how Microsoft showed its confidence in
  • the game by opening the press conference
  • with the gameplay trailer and just how
  • it teased all the new stuff to expect
  • and then at the end only to have my
  • heart sink that they didn't reveal a
  • release window so I'm hoping it's in the
  • first half of the year now would be nice
  • maybe right before e3 2019 would be nice
  • maybe sometime in May would be perfect
  • yeah I mean I'd like it sooner but that
  • seems to be the sweet spot for them I
  • think I mean there are certainly others
  • but this is the only one that matters
  • and just like you I'm calling it now
  • this game will be you know I would be
  • heartbroken but if it's not that it will
  • be my 2019 game of the year and to quote
  • the late great Stan Lee nuff said yes
  • excelsior indeed now in regards to the
  • the point system that you have made up
  • first of all were you able to hash out a
  • winner well the big winner of this list
  • is gonna be Sony exclusives yes that is
  • a big deal yes who says and single
  • player games for those who are big fans
  • of the fortnight's and the destinies of
  • the world so happy about that
  • unfortunately we are in a situation
  • where we have a tie for group game of
  • the year every year every year like this
  • ok well listen real quick
  • early explain explain to the listeners
  • exactly what what you're what you've
  • done and what does this group game of
  • the year mean like what is the number
  • system that you've come up with how does
  • that work something complicated all I do
  • is a side of a point value to each of
  • the top and where the number 10 is on
  • everyone
  • is worth one point and the number one is
  • worth 10 you add them up and you come up
  • with a winner so I when I did the number
  • crunching it turns out that both God of
  • War and Spider Man both earned 36 points
  • which means that we are now dead locked
  • in a tie for a group game of the year
  • well you know what then
  • then you know obviously I think anyone
  • that stayed into the in the Chad that
  • will be listening it would almost be a
  • crime against humanity if we didn't let
  • the people know live on the air what our
  • pick is and I'll go first and I'm gonna
  • say this both games are absolutely
  • fantastic I'm so excited as a Sony fan
  • there's something about and I say this
  • all the time their single-player story
  • driven adult themed titles that do get a
  • lot of crap from the you know the the
  • Xbox who ruined the community and again
  • we say we talk about easily talk about
  • the ps4 toxic community well guess what
  • folks the Xbox has those guys too and
  • they're the first ones wrong about these
  • one-and-done games I'm gonna say there's
  • someone who supports all of these
  • so-called one-and-done games who truly
  • enjoys what Sony brings to the table I'm
  • so stoked to say that my choice is going
  • to be God of War for a group Game of the
  • Year well deserved I think the game is a
  • masterpiece
  • Cory Balrog and his team should be
  • applauded every time they walk down the
  • street I want to go to uni omental out
  • of the - between spider-man which is
  • another masterpiece and God of War what
  • would be your pick for group game of the
  • year hmm well no I think I'm gonna go
  • spider-man ok strong you know I mean God
  • of War was a tight game you know
  • automatically on both of them you know I
  • think spider-man just has the edge it
  • out for me I really do I mean between
  • the the whole arc with Doc Ock a lot of
  • strong storytelling in that game man can
  • argue that yeah yeah I'm really gonna go
  • with spider-man ok and now we're gonna
  • move on to Jay the destroyer what is
  • your pick between the two for group game
  • of the year 2018 then d
  • for Jurassic Park evolution or envy to
  • win this no there's certainly it's God
  • of War
  • okay strong strong title I mean listen
  • it may not be as good as bendy but it's
  • still a top title for the Sony
  • Playstation system that's a strong pick
  • and last but certainly not least J the
  • retro gamer it seems like you might have
  • the deciding de-facto vote for a group
  • game of the year what are you going with
  • sir
  • yeah I you know we certainly have a
  • unique situation here okay I mean listen
  • don't pick it because it's it you know
  • it's the popular vote you got to pick
  • what you like yeah I you know there's
  • it's just there was some there was just
  • some things in the design of God of War
  • just small things that you know just
  • kind of make spider-man edged out for me
  • it's a yeah you know it's hard for me to
  • kind of get behind god of wars game of
  • the year okay well listen this is where
  • okay so we're right now we're deadlocked
  • at 2 for 2 and I'm gonna do wins well
  • listen I bendy could possibly sneak in
  • and win what I'm gonna do is this
  • because we're doing this live because we
  • have over 60 people watching live in a
  • show that I didn't expect to get a lot
  • of traction with we're gonna reach out
  • to the community do me a favor folks if
  • you want to be involved in this give us
  • your choice spider-man or game for Game
  • of the Year for group game of the year
  • or is should it be God of War I think
  • that is the fairest way to do it
  • considering we are deadlocked what are
  • we talking about folks let me get the
  • the community's help God of War for game
  • of the group game of the year 2018 or
  • spider-man 4 group game of the year and
  • I will wait a second I mean again
