We crack open the Wardcast time capsule to bring you an episode postdated January 25th, 2020, that had us conducting a then-punctual discussion about the Oscars, games, and the gaming news of the preceding months that occurred while we were otherwise preoccupied.

We (hopefully) close the book on Death Stranding, take a look at Half-Life: Alyx, try to figure out what happened at The Game Awards, discover some hot ‘sclusies on C-SPAN, and discuss the onslaught of a new console generation.

Games include Death Stranding, Halo: Reach, and Dishonored: Death of the Outsider.
