This week's episode has T.J. raving about the new hotness, the multi-cultural action-MOBA game For Honor, while Jonah complains about the lack of attention paid to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Scott, meanwhile, is playing Pillars of Eternity in preparation for the sequel. This week's news includes:

  • Fallout 4 surpasses Skyrim to become Bethesda's most successful game ever
  • Rainbow Six Siege year two: free loot, better matchmaking, subversive operators
  • E3 2017 will be open to the public

This week's Gaming History looks at the Capcom 5.

This week, the gang ponder about the games that are coming in 2017, thinking about what they're really interested in. The games range from Mass Effect: Andromeda to Injustice 2, among other titles. It's a long rambling conversation, but at least it's hope. The Gaming History focuses on the folly that was The Capcom 5. The news items this week include:

  • Fallout 4 surpasses Skyrim to become Bethesda's most successful game ever
  • Rainbow Six Siege year two: free loot, better matchmaking, subversive operators
  • E3 2017 will be open to the public

The Question of the Week is "What game are you looking forward to in 2017?"

Back in 2007, Derrick and Jennifer Schommer, along with Don Dunn started the Gaming Podcast, with their unique sense of humor and take on the biz of video games (as well as starting a popular World of Warcraft guild.) The trio would move on, with Derrick starting his Everyday Drinkers podcast and Common Man Cocktails site. Jonah Falcon took over, and merged it with the Videogame Roundtable. In that time, we've had hosts including Jordan Lund, Paul S. Nowak, Dan Quick, Scott Dirk and most lately, the inestimable T.J. Denzer. We've also had guest hosts including Hilary Goldstein and the late Andrew Yoon. This episode celebrates the past 10 years, including an intro by Dan Quick and Paul S. Nowak joining this week's episode, to discuss this news:

  • 'Father of Pac-Man' Masaya Nakamura dies at 91
  • Nintendo is gearing up for more mobile games, plans 2-3 per year
  • $500 million awarded to ZeniMax in lawsuit over the Oculus Rift
  • Asheron’s Call comes to a quiet end after 17 years

Let us know how long you've followed the podcast for!

Gaming Podcast is back after the one week break, and finally truly weighs in on the announcement of the Switch - and aren't impressed. What does impress the crew is the latest addition to the survival horror genre, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, which takes the radical approach of being a survival horror game. They also ponder about how great a Zelda/Minecraft game would be.

The next episode will be Gaming Podcast's 10th anniversary, so longtime listeners are encouraged to write in.

Unfortunately, there's no Donald Trump in this podcast - you'll have to wait for an outtakes episode to listen to THAT discussion. However, there's plenty of news culled from the past two weeks to enjoy. The news includes:

  • Rumor: Beyond Good & Evil 2 Switch exclusive for first 12 months
  • 'Game Mode' for Windows 10 will power Xbox One and Project Scorpio games too
  • Square Enix strongly hints at Dragon Quest XI heading west
  • Xbox boss says Microsoft will still "take risks" after Scalebound cancellation

Let us know what you think.

The year has ended, as the last podcast of 2016 was recorded last week, and released today. There's much discussion that was cut out and saved for a future outtakes episode. Regardless, there's plenty of show to go around, and the sound quality is also far better than ever thanks to Jonah getting a professional headset and mic. This week's news includes:

  • Nintendo registers trademark that could point to a SNES Classic Edition
  • Windows 10 may be getting a new "Game Mode" option
  • The next game by That Dragon, Cancer's dev is not what you'd expect

This week's Question of the Week is "What game in 2017 might you buy that you normally wouldn't?"

00:0000:00

In an hour-long epilogue to last week's landmark episode, Paul Nowak shows up for a guest appearance, and is very late. He discusses the previous week's podcast notes - and talks about his new job and Dungeon Keeper.

This is the last episode of 2016. See you in the new, hopefully less awful 2017.

It's the landmark 450th episode of Gaming Podcast -- and the end of a very disappointing year in videogames (among other things) for 2016. These aren't your usual awards though - Jonah gives the "Best PS2 Game" award to The Last Guardian, for instance. It's an extra long podcast at almost 2 hours, so enjoy all of the banter. There's also news, of course, which includes:

  • Torment: Tides of Numenera and Yooka-Laylee get release dates
  • New Age of Empires 2 expansion out next week
  • Final Fantasy's 30th anniversary plans to be revealed soon

Let us know your favorite games of 2016!

For the second week in a row, the podcast has had some technical issues. This time the problem was less, but there are still present. Part of the reason is that the mic is subpar, the other is that the PC it's being recorded on has a damaged fan. That said, this week's episode (and the unreleased episode) were really good. The unpublished one will be issued at some future date when we all need a break (maybe over the Christmas week.) This week's episode includes:

  • Assassin's Creed 3 goes free, murders Ubisoft servers in the process
  • After Blizzard shutdown, legacy World of Warcraft server returns this month
  • Halo 5: Forge custom game browser is launching on PC this week
  • Report: Nintendo Switch will get GameCube Games

Let us know what your favorite 2016 game has been.

You can't say Telltale Games doesn't have an knack for getting hot licensed properties from their rights holders. Not content to settle for The Walking Dead, Minecraft and Batman, the developer has announced a new episodic adventure series based on Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxies.

According to Telltale Games' co-founder and CEO Kevin Bruner:

 "In Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, players will take on multiple roles within the ragtag band of heroes, and take the pilot's seat in directing their escapades around the universe."

Telltale Games also released a teaser trailer to get fans excited about the game, which will be coming next year for PC, console and mobile devices.
