    I was really not in the mood to go to work again tomorrow but now I have this to look forward to, sweet.

  • Blake in Boston

    Yay! Glad to see the boys are back. Really digging the podcast so far–couldn’t agree more with Frank on how great Horizon: Zero Dawn is; however, the more I play Zelda, the more I’m convinced this game could be as good/if not better? 2017 is already one hell of a year, so I’m kind of glad Red Dead was pushed back to 2018, so my end of the year list is less painful to decide.

    Anyways, if you’re looking for a decent looking case that offers good screen protection and storage/with a minimalistic design, I recommend this case:

    Go with the black case, as the other branded gimmicky stuff will only work well if you’re in middle school.

    Anyways, thanks again for getting together to record! Really looking forward to an Embers of Mirrim tell-all. Speaking of which, I’m gonna go play some now and listen to some GJ, making my Monday quite the “Cream Dream Supreme.”

  • Lori Cerny

    It’s a drizzy, gloomy day where I’m at, so having GJ to listen to really brightened my day. Thanks Gents!

  • pcch7

    Sweet as usual. Happy to hear the love for Horizon, it really is an amazing game. Also a bit pleasantly surprised to hear Frank gush about Nioh, didn’t think any of you guys were fans of that type of game. I agree that it’s awesome.

    I’ll take it you guys didn’t play the original Nier on playstation 3, it was also very good. As for Mass Effect: Andromeda, I think it’s a good game but it didn’t live up to any of the old ME games. Mechanically it’s great, I like the movement and the action. But the characters just aren’t interesting to me and I’m struggling to finish it right now cause I don’t have the urge to learn more about them. Which is something all the old ME games nailed for me.

    Nice to get some words on Beat Cop, I’ve had my eye on that game.

  • pcch7

    Also, I see the new FJ episode in the feed up there but no post

  • pcch7

    I suppose none of you watched the Destiny 2 gamplay reveal? Not that there was that much gameplay actually revealed.. It does look cool though as expected but the 30 fps on console seems like a joke. Was gonna get it on both PC and XB. Might hold off and only get it on pc now, although I’ll have to wait a few months longer

  • Colin

    Glad to hear that you’ve all gone in on the Switch, somewhat disappointed that you haven’t branched out much farther with it than the first party fare… would have loved to have heard you talk about Blaster Master Zero ($10, perfect for Sean) or VOEZ, both of which are great, value-rich experiences on Switch.

  • Sean

    Yeah I am definitely intending to pick up Blaster Master Zero once I get sick of Breath of the Wild.

  • Well it only took about 15 minutes for you guys to say enough for me to hold off on buying a switch, it’s a shame it didn’t have a more glamorous debut. Thanks for the honest opinions boys! I have a WiiU with about five amazing games and a handful of meh ones that are not enough to keep it from collecting dust, let’s hope Nintendo doesn’t half ass this one.
