Best Games of the Decade and Bungie Leaves Activision – OK Beast Podcast Ep. 126 (Feat. Barrett Courtney)
On this week’s OK Beast Podcast, Blessing, Brandon, and Alex are joined by Barrett Courtney, a producer previously at IGN and now at Kinda Funny, to discuss the contenders that we think could be considered the Game of the Decade. Also, in our news segment, the crew discusses the very recent announcement of Bungie leaving Activision, The Division 2 skipping Steam and heading for the Epic Games Store, and the announcement of a new console being developed by the creators of Project Cars 2 and Need for Speed: Shift.
