Nate calls his shot early for game of the year and doesn't see many Rising to beat it. Corey talks about a veiner who he isn't Fallen in love with but still thinks is a good time.

Level 131 - Co-Op and Op-Eds

This week's panel - Big Ell, KooshMoose, rawkerdude, Matrarch

We welcome back Michelle to the panel! She tackled a pair of Game Pass puzzle games. She also wants to tackle Ell, who discussed a pair of co-op games M had to carry him in! Nate played a veiner that left him green. Corey, as usual, rode some coattails and played games that contained animals.

Xbox announced an Xbox Live Gold price hike and then rescinded it! What did we think of this decision? Do we want Gears Pop to hand us achievements before the game is gone for good?

We will tell you what's coming to Games with Gold and what other games are coming real soon! Contests, milestones, sales, and the kitchen sink! Enjoy the show!

Fan favorite trio Exe, Elroy, and Chewie are here with a new segment called Abandonment Issues, in which they tell the stories behind why they've left certain games unfinished to forever drag down their completion percentages. The best part? Picks were selected in secret by cohosts, so responses are all off the cuff, resulting in (for better or worse) the most unscripted segment you've heard from these gents! (2:22:30)

On this week's Waka's Weird Wonder, Wakapeil will talk about the game Alien Cruise (3:17:56)
