With the next generation of consoles looming, we're hitting the fast-forward button and jumping ahead to the most recent machines, starting with the Xbox One [download link here]!
It's not been an easy generation for Microsoft, as the Xbox One has been saddled with a fairly serious identity crisis from the start. Nadia and I talk about how that identity crisis came about, how Microsoft finally resolved it, and how RPGs eventually came to be at the center of its plans as we assess the Xbox One's somewhat odd RPG legacy.
Also in this episode, we talk about Pokemon's new Crown Tundra DLC, Torchlight 3's troubled launch, and much more!
