With the holiday season upon us, we look at games that missed the mark, and couldn't hold up to the hype. Games that were expected to be great this holiday season, but due to micro transaction, laziness, and quick production cycles, didn't live up to what they could have been. Goliath sits down with Patrick Hartz, and go over the games that could have been way better at the end of 2017.
Let's-a-go! In honor of Mario Odyssey's release, Goliath has invited over Ben Hamlin to talk about the Mario games they can afford to play. It's not just a nostalgia trip though, as the two discuss Mario's malleability and impact, as well as the sheer breadth of the plumber's brand from Mario Kart, to Mario Party to Yoshi's Island. And yeah, they gush about Luigi's Mansion a lot.
