When The Game Awards aired last week, I expected to have dissenting opinions on wins and losses, and hoped for some awesome game trailers. What I didn’t expect was to hear an amazing song that I’ve been addicted to ever since.
“Home Call,” by The Toxic Avenger, played during the trailer for Road 96, (which also looks like my kind of game), and it’s been on constant rotation ever since. I hope it’s actually in the game too. It’s quite fantastic.

Will has finally defeated The Last Guardian! After a few weeks of being down on the game, Will makes a shocking statement. Did the game get dramatically better? Or did it continue down a negative path?
Plus, Drew has been encountering frustrations with his Xbox’s Quick Resume, and catches everyone up on Fallen Order.
All this plus the mailbag, and live chatter with the Twitch chat!
#MusicMonday returns with one more track from The Last Guardian. Get swept away with emotions while you listen to “Forest”. The Last Guardian is an unforgettable story, and the soundtrack is equally unforgettable in my opinion. It’s got that big orchestral story driven sound you’d expect from a major motion picture, and who doesn’t appreciate that? There are notes of mystery, suspense, solitude, sadness, and every human emotion packed into this track, and the rest of this brilliant score. “Forest” soars with orchestral textures, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Will and Drew are letting loose this week and staying off script! Will gives an update on his playthrough of The Last Guardian, while Drew encourages him to play Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. Plus, both chat a bit about Black Friday deals, attempt to figure out what makes a mug “classy,” and much much more!
Will and Drew are back again recording live on Twitch! They chat about Will’s initial thoughts on The Last Guardian, Drew’s impressions of River City Girls, plus some quick hits on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and a full review of Spiritfarer!
#MusicMonday returns with “Prologue” from Shadow Of The Colossus. Accompanying the game’s introduction cinematic, Prologue shines with emotion, sadness, loneliness, and hope. There’s a lot of mystery embedded in the flutes, voices, strings, and melodies that engulf your senses. I really enjoyed this soundtrack, and I think it’s fitting for the game’s premise and atmosphere. A story was captured with this score, and Prologue is a showstopper. Enjoy.
Last week, the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 were released during the interesting circumstances of 2020. Both systems offer a next-generation look into gaming, but with the limited releases and different approaches, how did it all turn out? Drew got his hands on a Series X and dives deep into the pros and cons of the system.
Plus, Will has finished the PlayStation 4 masterpiece Shadow of the Colossus Remake. What are his final thoughts? Is this game worth your time?
All this, plus a quick look at the Super Mario Bros. Game & Watch, standing desks, and much more!
Spiritfarer has become one of my favorite games of 2020. It’s a relaxing and gentle game with some serious subject matter behind it. The music is moving and graceful in a way that feels appropriate. Whether you’re guiding Stella’s boat across the seas, or giving one final hug to your loved ones, Spiritfarer’s soundtrack will strike the perfect chords.
Well, folks, it’s been a good while, hasn’t it? The good news is, I’ve beaten a game recently (believe it or not), and it just so happened to make the cut for a WCG. On this dreary Sunday morning, I felt compelled to sit down at my newly beloved desk, and pour my heart out, as to why this game has made it into my top five games of all time. Ladies and gentleman, this…is Shadow Of The Colossus.
Before we jump in, I bought this game years ago. Well, a year or two ago. Either way, it’s been in my backlog for quite some time now, and after abandoning a game I wasn’t a huge fan of, I felt it was finally time to try SOTC out, once and for all. SOTC has been a very well received game for many, many years now. Originally a PS2 title, and then a remastered PS3 title, followed by the final remake by BluePoint Games. The Gods of remakes and remasters. Game reinstalled, I fired it up to see what all the fuss was about.
Will and Drew are back LIVE on Twitch to chat about the busy week for gamers. With the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S launching worldwide, the two are excited, but both have concerns. How does the launch library stack up compared to years before? Does it matter? And do the consoles leave any room for worry?
