122 - X018 Showcase and Prima Games' Closure

This week on the Rocket Punch Cast is all about Xbox, as the crew sit and debrief over the latest round of announcements from the X018 Showcase in Mexico City. What were some of the surprises (if any) that Microsoft announced to the masses? Do Will and Cam think they got the presentation right? Plus, should more fan events like this be more relevant over traditional conventions like E3? Plus, the crew give their thoughts and memories as Prima Games shuts down, Cameron goes over the titles coming to the PlayStation Classic, Will make actually watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade thanks to Goku, and more more news topics for Anthem, Red Dead Redemption 2, and more!
