The Co-op Podcast #198: Is 2017 The Year of Video Game Masterpieces?

Written by on    

Welcome to episode 198 of The Co-op Podcast. Jakejames Lugo and Max Moeller were away in Boston for Pax East, but this week we invited on Tony Polanco and Carlos Romero from Throwdown podcast to join us. This week we celebrate all the fantastic games that have released so far in 2017 and share which ones we feel are early 2017 Game of the Year contenders. Are we in for more masterpieces, or are some disappointments coming?
