GPS Episode 27: Destiny 2 Expectations, Games that Don’t Age, and More

Episode 27 of our gaming podcast, GPS (The Gamer Professionals Show) is now live! During the next three shows, we will be raffling off a $25 GameStop gift card. In order to get your name submitted, simply email a discussion question to This is a great way for us to give back to our fans while getting some of you involved in our discussions!

We begin the show talking about some of the games that we have been playing. For the most part, we are not jumping into anything too big before the release of Destiny 2. We take a few minutes to discuss Tales From the Borderlands, The Escapists 2Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, and Sonic Mania. We also highlight the amazing Harvey Relief Done Quick, which raised a quarter of a million dollars to help Harvey victims.

In the news, the publisher of Stardew Valley teased a new game on Twitter, which is described as a cross between Stardew Valley and Harry Potter. Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford also teased what many believe to be the new Borderlands game. The boxed Resident Evil 7 Definitive Gold Edition is coming this December which includes all content currently available up to this point, along with two new DLCs that debut with this release. Lastly, Activision have stated that more historical Call of Duty games could be on the way.

Nintendo released yet another bizarre statement about Mario this week, stating that he is no longer to be considered a plumber. This generates some discussion about Mario as a whole and how Nintendo have recently revealed some strange details about the character.

Later on, a listener question prompts us to discuss games that we loved in the past, but don’t necessarily age well once we go back to them today. Games that come to mind for us are Deus ExMetroid Prime, and the first Assassin’s Creed.

During our main topic, we talk about our expectations for Destiny 2 and how we hope it improves from the first game. In particular, we discuss how Bungie can better implement lore and story into the main campaign missions. The raid releases one week after launch, which could mean that Bungie want more people to level up and try it sooner rather than later. The long-awaited sequel is out today, and you can be sure that we will be spending dozens of hours with it this week.
