This week, Noah reviewed Exoprimal and thinks it’s underwhelming. David talks about how Six Days In Fallujah made him feel despair and intimidated. Anthony discusses how Granblue Fantasy: Versus would have reached its potential if it weren’t for its unnecessary mechanics. They also discuss the challenges of developer communication in live-service games, react to the Spider-Man 2 trailer, and Xbox Live’s change to Xbox Game Pass Core.
