This week on the show, it’s a new year and a new year brings with it plenty of new games. Over the next month we’ll be taking time to look forward into the distant reaches of 2019 to predict what to expect from the world of gaming. Each week we’ll tackle a different name in the industry, and stepping up to the plate this week is the one of the big three that really has the most to prove — Xbox. Join Luke, Elliot, Sam, Kolby and Rachel as they have a look at the rather limited line up of titles from Microsofts premium console. Will Crackdown 3 finally release? Can it be worth the years of grilling the team have received for it? The team also ruminate on the possibility of when we’ll see the next generation of consoles. Don’t miss any of the action and don’t forget to check out the first half of this podcast to keep up to date!
