Check out all of the biggest releases dropping this week!
Jedi: Fallen Order is magnificent. Pokemon Sword & Shield is delightful. Man, what a year of games. Sure there was no bombshell this year - we didn't get our Red Dead Redemption 2 or God of War but you know what, I'd almost rather have a ton of really good games than just one or two critical darlings. I literally don't know how to play everything I want to play right now. I need a week off or something. Good thing Thanksgiving is coming, right guys?!
Actually, maybe that standout game I'm looking for is Death Stranding, honestly.
Either way! My home is now completely decorated for Christmas - the tree is decorated, the stocking are hung by the chimney (with care). Santa's bound to be all up in our shit in just a months time for sure. Speaking of Christmas - still haven't watched Noelle or Klaus which hit Disney+ and Netflix last week but I'm going to this week I PROMISE. Check out the Brew next week - you'll hear my thoughts on both!
And also don't forget to listen to this week's episode to hear my thoughts on those games I've been playing.
So this week Google Stadia launches and it launches with a very lackluster lineup - and that's not to say that the games on it are bad, in fact, they're great. But they're all old games we've already played before so essentially there's not really anything new to sink your teeth into once you unbox it unless you're looking to start fucking around with Destiny 2 again.
Also Shenmue III is apparently coming out also because that's still a thing. I don't care too much about it but Alex and Casey are both very excited about it. So it'll be fun to hear their thoughts once they can finally get their hands on it.
As always, Wednesday and Thursday are lame but then lil ol' Friday shows it's head aaaand, also doesn't have much for us. I'm really excited for this Costume Quest Christmas Special though. That sounds adorable.
We're also getting new albums from Coldplay, Beck and a posthumous release from Leonard Cohen but honestly, none of those really razz my berries either. Last week was too wild and we're getting too close to the holidays so everyone's in that mindset where it makes more sense to wait until next year to release their respective project than toss it out now in the midst of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Christmas, New Year's Eve, etc.
We are getting Frozen II and A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood this week though! Two movies that will be seen by SO many people over the Holiday break next week - gonna opt in for option two myself.
Again, we'll talk to you on the Brew on Sunday and then we'll be gone for a week for Thanksgiving and to collect ourselves and our butts from all the pie and mashed potatoes we're gonna go nuts on.
