Topic Of The Show:
Now that’s how you start a week on the right foot. While rumors said that we might get a taste of developer 343’s multiplayer suite a bit early, fans didn’t know what to expect coming into the week. That was until the devs took the digital stage and announced to the world that players could indeed jump into Halo Infinite’s multiplayer right now! After getting through the blue screen, we dove head-first into Big Team Battle, Slayer, and more to get our bearings and see how different Halo Infinite’s multiplayer is. The good news? While not without issues, 343 has nailed PVP, and we’re discussing why we’re so smitten with it during this week’s Topic of the Show!

Not to be outdone, The King of Late Night, John Carson, follows that up with his review impressions of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and lets fans know whether or not they should be excited for the latest remake from ILCA and Game Freak!
