Pokémon Legends: Arceus is out this week, and while it's not quite an open-world game, there was a point when a lot of people thought it was going to be - so with Leif Johnson on board, let's take a look at five series that ditched linearity for an open-world approach. Then we'll shift gears to talk about Windjammers 2, more news from the Microsoft-Activision merger, and some of the dream projects you'd like to see after it happens.

Rainbow Six Extraction is out this week, pitting three players against the creepy mutant Archaeans - and we had so much fun playing it as a trio that we decided to talk about five of our favorite videogame trios (as a trio, naturally) in the first half of the show. Then it's time to talk about our experience with Extraction, Microsoft buying Activision, and the ways you like to combine fitness and gaming.

January is the time for new-year's resolutions - and what resolution is more popular, more strenuous, and more quickly abandoned than the one to get in shape? This week, we grab PNB's Robert Beach for a look at five games that make exercise more fun, after which we'll jump into Gar Cry 6's Pagan: Control DLC, Take-Two's Zynga acquisition, in-person E3's cancellation (again), and the games you're looking forward to most this year.

Another new year begins, as we shake off the holiday cobwebs and get back up to speed with a look ahead at five games we're especially excited to get our hands on in the next 12 months. Will all of them see the light of day? Finding out is part of the fun! With that done, we'll pay tribute to departed icon John Madden, speculate about PSVR2, and hear which 2021 games were your personal GOTYs.
