Bethesda was next up to bat and we discuss new Fallout 76 DLCs, a new IP from Tango Gameworks, and a brand new technology for Streaming games in the Cloud. And finally we've got Devolver Digital and what can I see, it's more ridiculousness from the company and we talk about how much we enjoyed them. Intro Music: 'Synergy' by Geographer
