After the guests introduce themselves and get through their gaming firsts, everyone gives out some of their favorite games from the Guerrilla Collective 2021 Showcase. Everyone should go check out the trailers from the games and make their own decisions, but a few recommendations from the Guerrilla Collective show include Endling, El Paso Elsewhere, Beasts of Maravilla Island, Industria, and My Lovely Wife for its sheer weirdness. Many more are mentioned and discussed as well in our deep dive on the Guerrilla Collective 2021 Showcase.
In the news, Capcom gets sued for texture infringement that they could have easily avoided. Controversy ensues as the panel has different takes on whether cross-gen is a good thing or not. Sony recently announced that not only is God of War: Ragnarok delayed, but it is also a cross-gen game, along with Gran Turismo 7. So they will be on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
The guys also talk about what on earth Koch Media could be showing with no Saints Row, Timesplitters, Metro, or Dead Island there. Yuji Naka no longer with Square-Enix, and also what Take-Two and Square-Enix are doing at E3 2021 too.
Finally, in our big topic, we discuss what Ubisoft, Capcom, Bandai Namco, and others could show at E3 in our final discussion on the topic before we get to the actual event itself.

Sean Garmer has a long history with video games, since childhood. But truly, things got serious when he discovered Pokemon on the Gameboy, and thus his Japanese RPG fandom was born. Sean has channeled that love of games into reviewing them. He also analyzes the games industry on the Video Games 2 the MAX podcast and writes on various sites. Sean pretty much plays any kind of game nowadays, but he still prefers his first love, the JRPG.
Marc Morrison brings years of experience writing about games (and of course, playing them) to Video Games 2 the MAX. He currently writes a Top 8 column every week at 411mania and also reviews games. Marc plays all different kinds of games and takes analyzing them to heart.
