Frank and Alex spin up the ol’ hype machine in anticipation of the biggest fighting game tournament of the year, but also get into the usual business of playing games. This week they dive into early PS1 classic Parasite Eve, continue adventures in Final Fantasy XIV, knock some heads in Tekken 7, and maybe still mess around with that Magikarp Jump. They also discuss the end of another MMO, Platinum Games teasing more re-releases, more details on Star Wars Battlefront II, Street Fighter V Evo finals returning to TV, the proper introduction to the latest and very anticipated Overwatch character, the return of a classic Tekken game mode, and much more!

This week, the Good Games Podcast is sporting a new look, but the same old banter.
Frank and Alex discuss the new DOOM game, Frank’s enduring love for The Wonderful 101, Alex’s hatred for Uncharted: Fortune Hunter, and then some final thoughts on Uncharted 4, followed by a deep dive into spoiler territory (not to worry, they will give plenty of warning before spoilers begin, and you can skip past them using the timecode in the show notes below.)
They also touch on a spiritual successor to Power Stone, news on the upcoming Destiny expansion, the old Arkham games coming back, the new Mass Effect 4D experience, and lots more!
This week, Frank and Alex return to their normal Thursday groove. Frank checks off another game from his backlog, while Alex adds another to the pile. They also discuss a potential new TMNT game from a respected developer, more processing power unlocked on the new consoles, Kojima’s grand vision of global nuclear disarmament, and so much more!
