028: 2017 Games of the Year


Hold on to your butts, it’s time for our 2017 Games of the Year extravaganza. As in the past, we live up to the title of the podcast and let you know what we thought were the best of the year. We also talk about Divinity: Original Sin 2, the term “souls-like”, why couldn’t Fallout 4 be a “game as a service”, and games we didn’t finish.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us here at the We Played Some Games podcast.

025: Mario’s Nipples


To be honest, we chose the title of this episode in an attempt to ride the wave of this controversial topic. This week our friend, Brian George, joins the conversation. Dennis and Brian spoil and are spoiled by Nier: Automata. Michael and Brian set up overwatch on the Chosen in XCOM 2. Shawn plays Spiel des Jahres nominated board game Imhotep. Michael is loving Divinity 2 and we chip in to buy Brian a copy. Dennis defends the frontier from a wave of new titans. Brian says Pyre is a slam dunk.
