Believe it or not, Victoria has only just finished the first Breath of the Wild, so we talk about that too on You Died!
Nintendo Direct, Microsoft xCloud, Square Enix's Avengers game and whatever Bethesda shows us of the next Elder Scrolls... next week is going to be great for gamers
We discuss Detective Pikachu, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter and many more gaming movies on this edition of You Died!
And we discuss how subscription services like Microsoft's GamePass change the value of games
We also go over the Sega Genesis Mini, The Elder Scrolls: Blades, and look forward to the next Nintendo Direct
If you hadn't figured it out by now, I'm a huge gamer. And I'm fascinated by the vision of the future presented by Google Stadia, a game streaming service that effectively puts your console in the cloud -- allowing you to play any game on any device. It strikes me that it's perfect for China: A country of 459 million mobile gamers, already playing complex PC-style games on mobile like PUBG. And China is also investing heavily in 5G, technology that would make a huge difference to game streaming. It's the topic of our podcast this week, so listen in for much more!
Ravi and Victoria try to slim down their gaming collections... but one of them is having a lot more trouble letting go

Bonus: Stories of gaming while parenting, otherwise known as... Red Dad Redemption (rimshot)
The most common bit of Chinese tech that people outside the country experience are games. But what was it like growing up as a gamer inside the country, where consoles were banned for years? Josh joined Victoria and I on this week's show to talk about the changing face of Chinese games.
Keeping with the end-of-2018 theme, the second episode of our podcast is all about the games of the year. We're not just talking about the best, but also a few, shall we say, "alternative" awards... like the best game to play on the toilet.
Is Arthur Morgan a good guy? Not the way I play him...
