Sean Garmer is once again joined by Marc Morrison as they discuss what is a relatively light news week and fill it with some other things to talk about.
Sean has tested out and has an Antstream Arcade Review ready for this episode, which in short, is a new streaming service that just launched all about retro games from the 1980s and 1990s. So, don’t expect anything from the PS3 and 360 eras, these are definitive super retro titles, featuring arcade games like Pac-Man and Mortal Kombat to Sensible World of Soccer and Smash TV. Is this worth it for old-school gamers? What about if you just want to play some games with friends? Sean has your answers right here.
PlayStation‘s Project Q (which for some reason still doesn’t have an official name) got leaked and it is an Android device. Does this make it more viable than before? Also, Ubisoft is locking down inactive Ubisoft accounts, even with game purchases attached, the mess of a Diablo IV season 1 patch, Sean has finally beaten Final Fantasy XVI, Marc’s been playing Star Wars Jedi Survivor, and more!
The Main Focus is the Antstream Arcade Review, But Also Watch or Listen for Discussion on Diablo IV, Final Fantasy XVI, and More

About Video Games 2 the MAX
Video Games 2 the MAX features a longtime veteran of Games Media, Sean Garmer, along with either his semi-regular co-host Marc Morrison or even a guest co-host to discuss everything involving Video Games each week, which includes the games they are playing or reviewing, all the big news of the week in gaming, a special topic, and even some Movies or TV Show topics at times as well. All from the viewpoint of gaming content creators, gaming journalists, and gaming consumers too.
Sean Garmer has a long history with Video Games. He started his love of games watching his brother play Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System. His first system was the Super Nintendo and he literally spent days at a time playing Super Mario World. He later fell in love with Pokemon for the Gameboy and thus his Japanese RPG fandom was born. Sean has channeled that love of games into reviewing them. Not only that, he also analyzes the games industry on the Video Games 2 the MAX podcast, and writing about it on various sites. Sean pretty much plays any kind of game nowadays, but he still prefers his love the JRPG.
