Thumbstick Athletes

Since we didn't get to have our What We Played segment last week, we decided to devote a full episode to catching up on the games we've played over the last few weeks.  We cover Ratchet and Clank, The Witcher 3, Uncharted 4, Hearts of Iron 4, and several others.  After the episode, Dan and Corey also catch up on the last two episode of Game of Thrones...episode 8 "No One" and the recent episode 9 "Battle of the Bastards."

Gamer Christmas starts early next week, so the Athletes do their usual predictions episode beforehand.  It contains the usual blend of pessimism and optimism, with some bold predictions thrown in as well.  During What We Played, Dan talks early impressions of Hearts of Iron IV, Eric played some mobile games, Will mixed in Doom and Ratchet and Clank along with some older classics, and Corey revisits The Witcher 3.  After the episode, Dan and Corey cover last weekend's Game of Thrones episode, "The Broken Man."

We didn't end up covering Doom this week like we thought we were, but it obviously came up in Letter D episode.  We covered Doom, Dreamcast, Destructoid...and that's pretty much it.  It was a busy week!  During what we played, Overwatch took up most of the segment, and after the episode Dan and Corey talk some spoilers for Episode 6 of Game of Thrones titled "Blood of my Blood."
