EP27 | Is Crackdown 3 Trash? Battle Royale Fad or Forever? Crying in Video Games???

This week, Tyelerr Durden is back and she’s here to stay! 

We get into the following topics in this episode:

-Negan and Julia to be added to Tekken 7 on Feb 28 as part of the season 2 update of fighters-Microsoft’s flagship title Crackdown 3 is getting terrible reviews. We waited all this time for a game that nobody was asking for and to top it off the game is ass. -Anthem which releases on the 22nd is gonna have a huge day one patch to fix the loading issues. Some people who got the game early said the game has loading screen bugs that cause them to last entirely too long. One user said it took him seven minutes to transfers between some menus.-Are Battle Royale games a fad or a legitimate genre going forward?
And we have a listener question that jumps into a whole discussion about crying in video games and there is one member on the team that’s not rocking with it.
