Video Games 2 the MAX: Hogwarts Legacy Delayed, Sony Keeping Games Off Xbox Game Pass
Sony and Microsoft are in a now second week of the war of potshots and statements. Microsoft alleges Sony makes deals that effectively block big third-party games from appearing on Xbox Game Pass. While Microsoft proves just how unprofitable it would be to keep COD off Sony's platform. This will certainly have Sean, Marc, and Daniel in their feelings. Game Delays continue as now Hogwarts Legacy is the next big game that moves its release date to 2023. Some other smaller games also have to take the hit and head into 2023 as well. There are some major game-related events on the horizon with a recently announced Disney + Marvel showcase and Gamescom's Opening Night Live too. All of this, plus Marc has some thoughts on PlayStation maybe having their own PC game launcher too. You can also watch this episode on video through our Youtube channel, W2M Network.

NHL Top 20 List - Top 20 Wingers
Alex and Chace are back with another episode in part two of their top 20 lists. Today, they look at the best NHL wingers in the game. However, they need to look at a bunch of signings first. Starting with some depth names and working their way up. Someone who ranked top five in last week's list signed an extension! From there, they start on the list. Alex notes how difficult this one was and why he feels there is so much volatility from year to year for the winger's list. Unlike centremen, there is no clear "best" player. Heck, Chace even argues there are upwards of eight guys that could be argued at number one. The guys start with their honourable mentions and work their way from 20 to 1. Breaking down each player on the list and how they got to that particular spot. As always, let the guys know if you agree or disagree with what they have!

Video Games 2 the MAX: Xenoblade Chronicles 3 Impressions, Batgirl Movie Canceled, Sony’s Major Call of Duty Concerns # 317
On our latest episode, so is Call of Duty "nothing special?" or is it "indescribable?" These are the statements put out by Microsoft and Sony concerning whether or not it would be ok for Call of Duty to be owned by Xbox. Sean and Marc debate on who's right considering some other factors at play involving the franchise as well. Is it a good idea to have them skip a year? And is there really no way to have a COD competitor? Warner Bros. Discovery has apparently shelved Batgirl and it may be due to monetary reasons. Why not just release it on HBO Max instead? And was there any interest in this film? Does it further the negative narrative about DC Films? Also, it is finally here, Sean has initial impressions of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, the game he's been waiting for all year. Does it live up to the hype and all of the praise from critics? What about the story, the characters, and how is the battle system? Plus, the duo have their say on the reports that Grand Theft Auto VI is set in Miami and will feature a Latina main character. Sean is obviously a lot more excited, but Marc has some concerns for sure. The next Tomb Raider game's plot may have leaked, EVO is going to have a press conference type event called EVO Live, will there be some big announcements?
