Episode 9 — Previewing 2019’s Biggest Games

January 11, 2019

The first episode of Drop In/Drop Out for 2019 has arrived and it's likely far too bloated.

On this week's show, we talk about all of the year's biggest news stories so far including that of Bungie and Activision splitting, Ubisoft and The Division 2 on PC, and even bemoan what is happening with the Alien license.

After tackling the news, we then play everyone's favorite game "These Are 2019's Video Games!!" Basically, we run down the upcoming year's releases and give our thoughts on all of the major games that are slated to launch in this calendar year. We also discuss whether titles like Metroid Prime 4DOOM Eternal, and The Last of Us Part II will end up launching in 2019 even though they currently don't have release windows. It's a fun albeit quick look at what the forthcoming year could bring.
