And we are back from our Halloween Hangover so let’s  nurse that morning migraine than with an all videogames podcast. As we mentioned previously, this has been a strong release period for videogames. So with the Holiday season looming over the horizon, what’s better than staying in with some games while ignoring the world outside.

The Odyssey Begins

First Up Mr Toffee gives his thoughts on Super Mario Odyssey. Finally an official Mario title for the Nintendo Switch. And also a new entry in one of the greatest and longest running video game series of all time. Boasting a bigger, better world to explore and get lost in. And a new gameplay mechanic where you “marionate” other characters in the world. Does the new game stack up against legendary titles Like Super Mario 3 or Super Mario Galaxy 2 or will it fail to live up to the pedigree?

Origin of the Creed

Then we jump in the Delorean and travel back in time, to the age of pharaohs and pyramids. Eccentric Tom gives his full review of Assassins Creed: Origins. Ubisoft takes it back to the very beginning with the series after almost two years since the last game. Climb and stealth through ancient Egypt as Bayek, the last of the madgi and the first of the assassins. Primed for a renaissance, does the new game bring fresh life to the series? Or should we finally lock up the creed in a sarcophagus once and for all?
