Topic of the Week
Prey 2 is officially cancelled. While this is entirely not a surprise, it’s disheartening. What games are we sad got cancelled, and what games do we feel should be cancelled? While we’re at it, we also discuss what games we honestly wish could just be localized, and we question some of the strange antics of various publishers and developers. Oh, Carl also retells a hilariously weird story about calling the Nintendo Power Hotline back in the day and talking to (probably) a pedophile.
