Description

Released every Thursday, The MinnMax Show features former Game Informer employees and beyond talking about the week's most exciting games or game industry news before reading feedback from the Patreon community found at patreon.com/minnmax.

Episode Date
2020's Biggest Upcoming Games, Fall Guys, Analogue Pocket
03:17:47

MinnMax's Ben Hanson, Leo Vader, Kyle Hilliard, Jeff Marchiafava, and Suriel Vazquez talk about 343's decision to make Halo Infinite's multiplayer free-to-play, reveal the next Deepest Dive, and explain why we're all in love with the battle royale-esque Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout. Then we lay out the full release schedule for 2020 and turn it into a "Release Calendar Six Shooter Duel"... patent pending. We debate who is the most eager to play games like CD Projekt RED's Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and Watch Dogs: Legion. Then we open up the Minnbox and award the iam8bit question of the week!
