So back in December 2015, I set up a New Year’s goal to not buy a video game unless I was going to play it immediately. To help with this, I unsubscribed from countless emails to remove temptations. As of mid-May, I have gotten better in my spending, but not to the standard of the original goal.

This is a spoiler free review.
I am going to do things a little different with this review and place some game tips at the end.
My Personal Stats
I played on the XBox One, both on the console and streaming to my Windows 10 PC. I unlocked 31 out of 42 achievements for 730 out of 1000 points. I spent 33 hours playing it. This probably includes the TV show portion. I also started to play without reading the extra story, then started over to read the extra story and record for a bit. Then kept playing without the extra story. Also, I died more times than I care to admit in the Final Moments, more on that later.

Welcome to the 51st episode of SBB’s video podcast. John and Ian couldn’t make it, so it is just the two of us. Excuse the camera. I don’t like it, so I am returning it. In the intro we discuss Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice after Jerry had seen it. We try to stay as spoiler free as possible. During Beer:30 we drink and discuss Rahr & Sons Drahthaar and Elevation’s Senorita. For GameTime we discuss the Doom beta, Ryse: Son of Rome, The Division, and Quantum Break.
