On this episode of Video Games 2 the MAX, hosts Sean Garmer and Marc Morrison discuss more on Bravely Default II and Persona 5 Strikers, while Sean also gives his initial thoughts on Retromania Wrestling as well.

Next, the duo gets into the major news involving the finalization of the partnership between Xbox and Bethesda. Did Phil Spencer really make things clearer with his statement on exclusives? Or is just further muddying the waters for more open interpretation? Also, they discuss the 20 games announced for Xbox Game Pass, (although most of them were already on the service anyway), and the possible upcoming Xbox events including one that could be happening as early as March 26.

After that, a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles beat-em-up game was announced by Dot Emu and it looks very much like the old arcade titles. Sean is super excited and ready to jump in at the moment of release. While Marc is a bit more reserved on the announcement. Plus, the latest NPD numbers and what is known and what could be announced at the Square Enix presents showcase on Thursday.

Other things discussed in the episode: The Resident Evil film reboot getting a September 2021 release window. Nobuo Uematsu possibly retiring. An EA employee making money off FIFA Ultimate Team cards, and more.

Of course, the show ends with a look at the upcoming games for the week.
