Debug Mode: Games of 2018

I’m still doing this Debug Mode video game show thing! In fact, I’ve been working on content for the channel a lot lately. If my plans don’t get too derailed, 2019 should be the biggest year yet (which is to stay I plan on releasing more than 2 videos – hopefully many more than that).

For now, here’s a look back at the games of 2018: the good, the disappointing, and my top 5 favorites. Happy New Year!

Popcorn Not Included – They Shall Not Grow Old

This is our first discussion of a documentary on the podcast. They Shall Not Grow Old is a WWI documentary from director Peter Jackson. It features stunningly restored and colorized footage of the 100 year old conflict.

The superhero movies just keep on coming, but this one’s pretty special.

For the record, Miles Morales first appeared in comics in 2011 – not 2003 as I mistakenly estimated – so he’s an even newer character than I was thinking.
