Things get a little heated this week as 2018 kicks into gear and our passion overflows and threatens to destroy us all. Sea of Thieves inspires a debate about the current and future states of game development and marketing. The group finds common ground thanks to the undeniable fun factor of Far Cry 5 but that doesn't mean the game is without it's fair share of controversy. Nick and Nolan also cracked open Ni No Kuni 2 and A Way Out which are both noteworthy in their own right.

As you all know, we answer the important, life altering questions on our show. For instance, this week we debate whether or not straws have holes and I think we came up with a definitive answer. Perhaps more importantly, we talk about Devil May Cry 5 which has proven to be a very divisive game within our group. Brad introduces Baba is You while Nick and Nolan try their best to convey their disappointment in Resident Evil 6 but only manage to make it sound more appealing.

While RAGE 2 hasn't hooked us yet, the game shows promise thanks to fun combat and the usual open world hooks. On the other end of the spectrum, Druidstone, the next game from the talent behind The Legend of Grimrock, manages to do a lot with a smaller budget. Nick goes to bat for Days Gone now that he's spent a lot more time with it and the group addresses some juicy news involving From Software and George R. R. Martin.

In the news, we discuss Valve's new VR headset, the horrifying new Sonic the Hedgehog movie that exists, and we speculate that From Software's next game is in fact a Souls-ian Pirate game called Booty Patrol.
