Welcome one and all to the final regular Utterly G33k of the year! Sadly Steven Petrella could not join us today, however Wally and Daron talk about story driven games, visual novels, and what happens when you re-watch the original Star Wars Trilogy once you’ve grown up. (As much as we’ve actually grown up). Oh, and also apparently cereal is an Amiibo now. So that’s the thing. 2017 has been weird.
Welcome once again to Utterly G33k! This week we update you on the ongoing shenanigans surrounding Star Wars Battlefront II. This includes the U.S. Government, player retaliation and Rubber Bands! We also dig into similar problems arising in Destiny 2, as well as look at the upcoming new releases!
Welcome! This week we continue the downward spiral that is Electronic Arts’ attempt at Star Wars: Battlefront II. We also reminisce on the wonder and joy of renting video games for a weekend as well as discuss Mario Bros. The Movie and potential future Mario Bros. movies.
