#116 – Microsoft’s X018 and Tetris Effect

Microsoft is trying to drill something into our collective brains in their X0 event return: a nail, finely engraved with the following message: it’s a URL which points to a website where you can sign up for their email mailing list. The message on the ensuing email? ‘We’re focusing on games’. Our reply? ‘Finally’. No use though, it’s a no-reply email and we get a bounce back from mailer-daemon.

This week we’re also discussing Tetris Effect, Microsoft purchasing Obsidian Entertainment & inXile Entertainment, Crackdown 3’s release date, Void Bastards, the return of Xbox’s Winter of Arcade, new games coming to Xbox Game Pass, The Game Awards 2018 and Red Dead Redemption 2.

And finally, we list our Top 3 Mobile games, and play RESET Mini-game: Character crossover.
