Gamer’s Gambit 3: Ultimate Alliance, Doom turns 25, Pokemon Go, and MORTAL KOMBAT!

December 28, 2018 @ 1:35 am

Al and Wayne have a variety of subjects to discuss this week:

Mortal Kombat 11 trailer
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 announced
PlayStation Classic hacked
Hello Neighbor prequel
New levels for Doom's 25th Anniversary
Pokemon Go's Popularity rebounds
Opinion: We don't understand game company CEOs

We also discuss Doom's impact on popular culture and society.

CORRECTION: While discussing the Mortal Kombat trailer Al mentions Sub-Zero. He meant to say Scorpion and loses 15 points of geek cred.
