 SUMMER OF GAMES   

Episode 238: Quarantine Catsup, Part 2

August 17th, 2020 | 12:00 pm ET

We relish our continual catch up with announcements, news, games played, and games seen.

We continue to catch up on the endless Summer of Games™!

We find out that the gamers are unwell, as they deal with a Nintendo leak of gigantic proportions, debating dedicated hardware versus emulation, and melting down over Halo Infinite’s alleged graphical “downgrade.”

Also to contend with this episode: Pokémon teeth, an upsetting amount of Star Wars, MCU-ified M.O.D.O.K., and, unfortunately, more misconduct in the games industry — content warning for sexism, racism, and abuse — this time at Ubisoft.

Games include Apex Legends, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Devolverland Expo, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and Phantasy Star Online 2.
