Episode 145: Good to be Rogue

– In the latest episode, we change formats slightly and instead of reading the news, we just cover topics.  The topics for this show were about Nintendo and who they are attempting to be at this time and if they can compete with Microsoft and Sony in the console space and do they want to compete with them.  We also list our most anticipated games of 2017 and briefly discuss Project Scorpio.  Then we talk about Carrie Fisher and her unfortunate death over the holiday followed by her mother, Debbie Reynolds passing away the next day.  And finally, we have a long spoiler filled discussion of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
