What a wonderful time of the year for video games. Lots of December game surprises. The sun sets on Dennis in Red Dead Redemption 2. Shawn gives us a heads up on Below. Michael meets Mr. Moneybags in Fallout 76. Brian and Michael claim they don’t mash buttons in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. People need killin’ and Dennis obliges in Hitman 2. Brian and Dennis give zero Dux in Mutant Year Zero. Shawn played Crest, so when someone asks him if he’s a god, he can say, “Yes!” Brian spits fire in Spyro Reignited Trilogy. 2018 was a rough year, we’ll recap the games that helped us get through it.
