On this episode of Video Games 2 the MAX, Sean Garmer and Marc Morrison talk about quite a lot, as video games kick full swing into 2018.
First, they begin by discussing the two open betas held on the same weekend. DISSIDIA: Final Fantasy NT and Dragon Ball Z FighterZ. They discuss why the Dragon Ball Z one had so many problems but perhaps winds up being the better of the two games. While DISSIDIA had a lot to show but may be too obtuse for its own good. Not to mention, Marc schools Sean on why DBZ is better than Final Fantasy. Plus, Sean also talks about Super Meat Boy on Nintendo Switch.
There’s also quite a bit of news. Quantic Dream has come under fire from former employees about a toxic work environment. How perhaps the denials were not handled very well, and is this a case of conduct overblown? Or is there something more sinister going on?
In addition, Gravity Rush 2 fans save the online servers. D.I.C.E awards announcements and why exactly there are some peculiar choices for some of the categories. Thoughts on Overwatch League. A convo on X-Men films in relation to the news that another director has left the Gambit film, and a heck of a lot more.
