Episode Notes

On this huge episode of The MinnMax Show, Ben Hanson, Jeff Marchiafava, Suriel Vazquez, Ana Diaz, Kyle Hilliard, and Leo Vader unpack the year's highlights by debating the nominees and winners for our categories. We talk about the biggest games of the year like Final Fantasy VII Remake, The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Half-Life: Alyx, and more. Each category earns a Maximum winner and a Minimum winner, naturally. We stayed pretty vague, but we've noted in the timestamps below which games are very lightly spoiled in these discussions. The next two episodes of The MinnMax Show will cover our full game of the year debates, and you can watch us record them live early by jumping into the Backstage Pass tier on Patreon.

2020's Biggest Upcoming Games, Fall Guys, Analogue Pocket
03:17:47

MinnMax's Ben Hanson, Leo Vader, Kyle Hilliard, Jeff Marchiafava, and Suriel Vazquez talk about 343's decision to make Halo Infinite's multiplayer free-to-play, reveal the next Deepest Dive, and explain why we're all in love with the battle royale-esque Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. Then we lay out the full release schedule for 2020 and turn it into a "Release Calendar Six Shooter Duel"... patent pending. We debate who is the most eager to play games like CD Projekt RED's Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and Watch Dogs: Legion. Then we open up the Minnbox and award the iam8bit question of the week!
