Vidjagame Apocalypse

With Hugh Jackman confirming his return as Wolverine for Deadpool 3, we're going topical this week and inviting Steve Guntli of Wii Universe for a look at the five "best" games to star Logan by his lonesome. Then it's on to Session: Skate Simulator, Beacon Pines, more Metal Hellsinger, Disney's Star Wars game plans, and your preferences re: looking at leaks.

Return to Monkey Island hit this week, and its opening inspired us to bring Tony Wilson aboard for a look at five games that start you off as someone who'll shortly exit and won't be playable again for the rest of the game.* Then it's on to Trombone Champ, Metal Hellsinger, the GTA 6 leak, PSVR2 leaving PSVR games behind, and your favorite two-and-through series.

* Yep, we already did this topic in 2019, but only realized it after the fact. The discussion, however, is totally new!

After seeing more of God of War Ragnarök at Sony's State of Play this week, we felt inspired to look at other series that told their stories across (or were abandoned after) just two games, something that's only really strange because we're so used to everything being trilogies in this industry. Then we'll dig into Steelrising, Freedom Planet 2, the reveals from State of Play, the Nintendo Direct, and Ubisoft Forward, and your personal Lord of the Rings-related stories.

With Amazon debuting the absurdly expensive Rings of Power series last week, we decided it was as good a time as any to chat about five of the best Lord of the Rings games, with special guest Anthony Abatte. Then it's on to Splatoon 3, Disney Dreamlight Valley, and Immortality, Sony and Microsoft beefing over Call of Duty, and the classic games you'd like to see gathered up in lavish, detail-filled collections.

Everybody's familiar with scary videogame clowns, from Sweet Tooth to Generic Zombie Clown #27, but how many pure, unironic clowns can you think of? This week, the legendary Chris Baker joins us to talk about five of them, after which we'll get into his new game, Circus Electrique (out September 6), as well as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection, Destroy All Humans! 2 Reprobed, Big Chungus potentially joining MultiVersus, and the series you think could stand to get sillier.
