Metroid Dread is better than Super Metroid. It’s a scientifically verified fact with experts and fact checkers.

Episode 234 – God of War RagnaROKED The Reformed Gamers

God of War Ragnarok is a meaty game. To help us discuss the themes, we brought on friend and Patron of the show: Nate McKeever (Backlog Breakdown). Before we get into the show, the preshow sees us discussing the recent news surrounding Xbox's layoffs and wondering just what is going on over there. The show proper sees us hinting at future content (including a new podcast) along with discussing the theme of obsession and parenthood as it relates to the characters in God of War Ragnarok. Buckle up. This is a long but rock solid episode.

Or so we hear. Metroid Dread has finally arrived on the Nintendo Switch, reinvigorating the Metroid fanbase. But does it have what it takes to stand in the halls of the great Metroids before it? We argue that it not only does, but it reigns as the best 2D Metroid in the series. Jonathan Steele (of Episode 202) returns to help discuss this amazing GOTY contender.
