Frosty Canucks Podcast ep 18

We are once again asking for your full attention.

This week on Frosty Canucks Jason and Frosti discuss the recent announcement that Yakuza will remain a turn based RPG. While we were disappointed, we took the opportunity to discuss some of the changes we’d make to spice up the combat. In addition there is talk of Ubisoft pivoting into free-to-play games and we take a deep dive into why license games are usually terrible.

And as per normal we go back and forth on what we’ve been playing. More Dark Souls, Caligula Effect, and Herds but this time they’re joined by Celeste, Dishonored and more.

As always if you’d like to reach out with questions you can contact us through our social channels.
