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? Also, rumors are swelling about a huge D23 for Marvel Disney Plus shows. What are the guys excited about from the big slate?
