This week, the Pause Screen crew are getting ready for the end of the decade! William has jumped back into Zelda: Breath of the Wild to try and sort out his feelings, while Kyle’s been playing Remnant: From the Ashes, Control, Smash Ultimate, Heroes of the Storm, and buying way too many games. Then, in a relatively quiet Hype Train, we mention potential reveal leaks, Mario Maker 2, Snoop Dogg as a video game icon, Riot games, and more. Then we finish up with our discussion topic for the week: what we think the ‘Top 5 Games of the Decade’ were! Come pause with us!
