Forspoken, Sony Buys EVO, Best Bethesda Games

Published on:

On this episode of Video Games 2 the MAX hosts Sean Garmer and Marc Morrison discuss the major highlights of the Square-Enix Presents showcase such as Life is Strange: True Colors and Forspoken. Not to mention, the other announcements from the show including the Tomb Raider anniversary collection, Sean being into Outriders with the Xbox Game Pass announcement, and more.

The guys also discuss Sony surprising everyone and buying EVO. Does Nintendo leave the tournament now that a competitor owns it? Will it change much with Sony putting money into it?
