Nolan talks about his early impressions of the Red Dead Redemption 2 Online Beta, Nick revisits Resident Evil 4, and Chris Davis talks about.... Hitman 2 (or is it 1?). Of course, the Video Game Awards are quickly approaching as well so the news is dominated by rumors of impending game announcements!

    I feel like making an objection to Brad's Hitman desires. He seems to want a Hitman game that caters mostly to the hardcore fans, and you can't do that now with a franchise like Hitman. Since it's not a strong brand you can't focus exclusively on Brad, and the 4 other hardcore Hitman fans. The games have a hard enough time making headway while catering to a larger audience.

    I played trough Hitman 2016, and it's the only Hitman game i have played. It might have been a bit too catered to more casual players, but i found Brad's ideas to be more off-putting.

    Brad mentioned "The Hunter"- I remember Gamer's with Jobs talking about it back then and I gave it a try. It was definitely slow and difficult, I saw deer a couple of times and could never get a clear shot in a couple of hours of trying.

    I think having a toggle for RDR2's animations would break immersion. I think the perfect balance would be having players look for rare materials to, for example, upgrade your knife to skin animals more quickly.

    Also, your Resident Evil conversation during the break got me thinking: If REmake was based on the fixed camera angles of 1, 2, and 3, and the RE2 remake will be based on the over-shoulder-camera of 4, 5, and 6, then would a RE3 remake be in first-person like in 7? Just a thought.

    Long time listener, first time writing in! Let me preface this by saying that I love the show!

    I don't want to come off as a crazy Nintendo fan, but I'm somewhat disappointed by the lack of proper coverage the Switch gets on the podcast. Half a dozen games come out for the Switch every week, and barely anyone is talking about them.

    Krispy doesn't even have one! I love this show but how can you have a regular podcast member who doesn't even have the hottest system out right now? Check-ins on Overwatch are getting a little old. I was THIS close to ending it all when he was talking about that fucking hamster...

    I'm only half serious... thanks for the shows and and keep up the great work!
