What Defines DLC in 2021?
This week Pete and Steve ask the question "What is the definition DLC in 2021?" and apparently a lot of you had thoughts on this too! Whether we were successful in defining it or not remains to be seen… Before that, Steve also got hands on with the early-access beta of one of his most anticipated games of 2021, Diablo II: Resurrected. Pete predictably played a lot more Pokémon UNITE but also checked out the New Donk City update to Mario Golf: Super Rush.

Welcome to FlipScreen Games
What's up, internet?! Welcome to the FIRST EVER FlipScreen Games Podcast! On this inaugural episode we spend way too long talking about Pete's latest obsession — the hot new MOBA, Pokémon Unite. Steve's been away for the week so aside from crashing many, many planes on Microsoft Flight Simulator he had a lot of thoughts about some board games on the first episode of this video game podcast. We also answer a ton of listener questions from the Question Block including the eternal debate of which is better… SNES or Genesis?
