Editor’s Note: With school online due to COVID-19 and social distancing measures being implemented across the country, things will sound a bit different here at the Emerald Podcast Network as we navigate recording from separate physical spaces.

Microsoft’s acquisition of Zenimax finally completes and finds approval with the governments of the U.S. and the U.K., Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles prepare to reappear in a new game from the creators of the Scott Pilgrim beat-em-up, and a slew of new gamepass games sparks debate. Also, the group discusses their favorite side characters in games.

The Emerald GamesCast is a weekly video game news and discussion podcast from the Emerald Podcast Network with an industry focus. Hosted by three best friends, each episode will provide the listener with a week’s worth of gaming headlines and conversation about current releases. Guests welcome, scripts discouraged and passion essential.
