  • Jordan takes to the skies in Ace Combat 7, hides bodies in Hitman 2, puts Assassin Creed: Odyssey to bed and travels back to the good times in Battlefield 4. Cam updates us on his voyage in Assassin Creed Odyssey and his couple's journey into the world of Portal Knights. Doug moves up in the rankings (and society) of Dead by Daylight. Dj continues his mission to rescue bots in Astro Bot: Rescue Mission.

Gaming News *Provided by "Douglas the Informed"* - Time code: 22:30
