Episode Notes

With the next generation of consoles looming, we’re hitting the fast-forward button and jumping ahead to the most recent machines, starting with the Xbox One!

It’s not been an easy generation for Microsoft, as the Xbox One has been saddled with a fairly serious identity crisis from the start.

Also in this episode, we talk about Pokemon’s new Crown Tundra DLC, Torchlight 3’s troubled launch, and much more!
