Indiana Jones: After years of silence, Ryan and Seth both hope to see a full reveal and gameplay of the long-awaited Indiana Jones game this year. Will it be a first-person, third-person, or a mix of both, is the question on everyone’s mind.

New Xbox Hardware: Rumors suggest refreshes of the Series S and Series X, with the latter adopting a bold move of becoming a digital-only console with two terabytes of built-in internal storage for the same price. While the design has received mixed reviews, it’s an exciting development for Xbox enthusiasts.

Nintendo Reveals

Switch 2: Seth predicts a more powerful, closer to a Steam Deck, successor to the Nintendo Switch. A fall release is anticipated, aligning with Nintendo’s traditional holiday push.

Launch Game for Switch 2: Seth and Ryan are both hoping for a new 3D Mario game as a launch title for the Switch 2. The last 3D Mario game, Super Mario Odyssey, was released in 2017, making it prime time for a new installment.

Metroid Prime 4: While Seth believes this highly anticipated game may not be coming to the current Switch, the likelihood of it being a launch title for the Switch 2 is high, satisfying the core gamers and mainstream audiences alike.
