    Alex and Chace are back with their final preview episode of the year. Today, they take a look at the 2022 Atlantic Division preview. Obviously, this was bound to be one of their longer episodes, with Alex and Chace's favourite teams in this division. However, they wanted to make sure they were giving each team an appropriate amount of time. As always, they start at the bottom of the division, predicting who they believe will come last. Alex believes he has a hot take about the eighth-place team in the division, but after talking with Chace, he realizes it may not be that hot after all. The guys work their way up the division, discussing each team and what to expect from them this year. What makes it a successful season? If they were to make the playoffs, how does it happen? At the end, they briefly discuss some surprises they have seen from different projection models on Twitter, as well as give their Stanley Cup Finals predictions.

    On this edition of the show, Sean and Marc discuss Google Stadia shutting down, is this more of Google expecting more than they should have, what went wrong? And what does it say about Cloud Gaming? Even with Logitech and Razer both announcing Cloud Gaming Devices. Is it possible Microsoft could do their own Game Pass Handheld? Also, Skull & Bones is Delayed AGAIN by Ubisoft and this time it won't be released until March 2023. Will the game actually see release? And could there be some kind of redemption for this title at some point?   There's also the latest controversy with Overwatch 2, Tiny Tina becoming a franchise, EA's Wild Hearts, Sean played a little of FIFA 23, Marc played some Live a Live, and more!   You can also watch this episode on video through our Youtube channel, W2M Network.

    Alex and Chace are back with another loaded week of content. Today, the guys preview the 2022 Metro Division preview. However, there are three big names that retired this past week that they need to touch on first. To do that, they go through each player's career and discuss what their legacy will be. From there, they also look at a trio of player signings. Some massive contract news was released for Nathan MacKinnon. The guys give their opinion on that. As well as a contract that Alex is nowhere near as fond of. Finally, they get to the division preview. As always, starting with the teams near the bottom that they feel will be tanking for a high pick this year and working their way up. One thing is clear, multiple teams in the division this year will be disappointed. There are too many playoff-hopeful teams for the math to work out. It will be interesting to see who is left out of the picture when it is all said and done.

    Alex is back with another episode before the season starts. Today, he takes a look at the Tyler Motte contract and gives his opinions on the player and what it means for the team. Usually, he would have a guest with him to help break down the signing and give their opinion as well. But today, Alex is going solo. In a much shorter episode than usual, Alex felt it was important to post something but couldn't find anyone last minute. After the Motte deal, Alex switches his focus to two professional tryouts that Ottawa signed. Those are Derick Brassard and Michael Dal Colle. Jumping into why PTOs are a good call for any team, Alex examines both player's career paths. Obviously, Sens fans know Brassard very well. However, some may not know just how weird of a career he has had since leaving Ottawa in 2018. Alex looks at where both players come from and what their role may be if they were to join the Sens on an actual contract this season.

    Alex and Chace are back for Week Two of their preview series. Last week, they took a look at what the Central Division had in store. However, this week they shift their focus to the 2022 Pacific division. Like always, Alex and Chace go through each team and give their thoughts on the upcoming season. They begin with teams they view will be at the bottom of the division, usually the rebuilding teams. Today, the guys actually disagree on the placement of a few teams in the middle of this division, leading to some interesting debate. They even have a different top four, although the division leader they do agree on. Team by team, they go through and describe what a successful season will look like for each franchise. Overall, they predict where each team will finish and why. The common outcome is that the Pacific may be more interesting than last week's Central Division.

    Originally Recorded in the early hours of Wednesday 09/14/22. It is out late this week due to Sean having to go to his Grandfather's Viewing and Funeral within two consecutive days. Well, to put it mildly, this week was announcement mania. No less than four showcases have taken place since the last time we recorded an episode. So obviously there is a lot to discuss and go through. Sean, Marc, and Daniel discuss their favorite announcements and things they are looking forward to from each one. We got God of War: Ragnarok, Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, a new Captain America & Black Panther game, and teases for several Assassin's Creed titles. What more could have happened? Trust me, there was quite a bit more. Plus, although Square-Enix had a ton of positives from two of these events, they also announced the shutdown of Babylon's Fall is coming soon, Xbox is getting Discord support and a new dashboard, and also Bonnie Ross leaving 343 Industries too.

    Alex is back with another episode of the Last Word on Sens podcast. With a relatively quiet August, he took most of the month off. However, there has been some massive news lately and the podcast is back! Making his return to the podcast to assist Alex is Steve on Sens. Today, the two start by looking at the Tim Stutzle contract and why it is crucial to the Sens rebuild. Both Alex and Steve give their takes on why they like the deal, along with any potential risk it may include. From there, they also look at the Erik Brannstrom deal and explain why this may actually seal his time as an Ottawa Senator. What do they want to see from Brannstrom and his usage this year? Is there anything that can save his time in Ottawa? Finally, they ask the question of is this defence core good enough as is. The two dive into that topic, looking at how this core could be used this season.

    This was originally recorded in the early morning of 09/08/22. Sean had a death in the family shortly before recording, which delayed the release of this episode. As the gaming world gears up for some big announcements within the next few weeks, the acquisitions and stock purchases of companies continue, as Tencent and Sony make payments to up their stake in Elden Ring developer From Software, while Tencent even does the same with Ubisoft making the rumors from a few weeks ago come true. Not to mention, Net Ease ups their stake into a full-on acquisition as they have made it their intention to purchase Quantic Dream. The battle still rages on between Sony and Microsoft in the fight with the review boards, as Sony gets a small victory in forcing an in-depth review of the Activision-Blizzard-King acquisition in the UK. While also fanning the flames of social media with Jim Ryan's statement that “Microsoft's offer is inadequate.” Is it really a bad deal? Would this actually weaken Sony's place in the gaming industry? And should that really be a region's place to decide anyway? Shouldn't Microsoft's intent to want to keep Call of Duty on PlayStation play a role in this as well? If you haven't noticed, there sure have been a lot of Horror games in the works lately, the System Shock devs say this in-large part due to the success of Resident Evil 2 Remake. Sean and Marc discuss the revival of Horror games and what are some franchises that are dormant they'd like to see make a comeback. Plus, should we believe the rumors about the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Wind Waker remasters being announced for Switch at the next Nintendo Direct?

Today, they preview the 2022 Central Division! However, they start by looking at some massive signings that have occurred over the past week or so. Including a team that Alex's favourite team has made. After that, they go team-by-team through the Central division. They look at the roster for each team and also look at what would make this a successful season. Asking should this team be looking at playoffs. Or are they a team that should be looking to retool or even rebuild? Finally, they discuss how lopsided of a division this will be and why this might be one of the more boring divisions this season. With a clear favourite, it seems likely the battle for this division will start at spot number two.

Maybe the toughest list yet, Alex and Chace go through each goalie on their list and why they have them ranked where they do. Overall, the top of these lists were some of the easier ones. There are 6-7 names everyone would have near the top that you can consider legit starters. From there, you start to get into more guys who play closer to 40 games instead. Tandem-like goalies that just weren't around even 10 years ago now may be a Top 20 guy in the league. This makes for quite the experiment to balance age, sample size, and results altogether. Listen to Alex and Chace explain their thought process, along with what they used to try and determine it. As well, they compare the lists this year to where they had players ranked last year to explain their thought processes.

    It's another week in video games and one that created controversy with Sony deciding that the PlayStation 5 should see a price hike in basically all major regions except the United States. Sean, Marc, and Daniel give their views on the decision if it's really needed, and what it says about Sony, especially in the face of Microsoft and Nintendo both stating they would not raise the price of their consoles. Sony also made another purchase, this time in the form of a Mobile game studio, Savage Games, furthering their previously stated intent to go into mobile gaming. Is this a good idea for Sony? Phil Spencer also stated that their still pending acquisition of Activision-Blizzard-King is due to a greater push towards mobile and PC. Should primarily console gamers be worried about this? Or is this just the way of the times? Also in this episode, the guys discuss if there could be a gaming world with no Third-Party exclusives, the first two episodes of She-Hulk, the latest with Assassin's Creed Mirage, could Bandai Namco lock down From Software?

    Sony and Microsoft are in a now second week of the war of potshots and statements. Microsoft alleges Sony makes deals that effectively block big third-party games from appearing on Xbox Game Pass. While Microsoft proves just how unprofitable it would be to keep COD off Sony's platform. This will certainly have Sean, Marc, and Daniel in their feelings.   Game Delays continue as now Hogwarts Legacy is the next big game that moves its release date to 2023. Some other smaller games also have to take the hit and head into 2023 as well.    There are some major game-related events on the horizon with a recently announced Disney + Marvel showcase and Gamescom's Opening Night Live too.    All of this, plus Marc has some thoughts on PlayStation maybe having their own PC game launcher too.   You can also watch this episode on video through our Youtube channel, W2M Network.

Starting with some depth names and working their way up. Someone who ranked top five in last week's list signed an extension! From there, they start on the list. Alex notes how difficult this one was and why he feels there is so much volatility from year to year for the winger's list. Unlike centremen, there is no clear "best" player. Heck, Chace even argues there are upwards of eight guys that could be argued at number one. The guys start with their honourable mentions and work their way from 20 to 1. Breaking down each player on the list and how they got to that particular spot. As always, let the guys know if you agree or disagree with what they have!

Maybe the biggest of the batch being the Kevin Fiala trade and signing that came yesterday. Fiala's new deal sparked some interest and a good discussion of value when it comes to the trade. They also look at Shea Weber and his contract being moved and what that means. Finally, the guys look at four new NHL Head Coaching jobs and try and make sense of it all. Alex can't wrap his head around one move in particular.

    This episode was originally recorded on 06/21/22. Apologies for taking long to edit it and get it out to you all. It certainly was one heck of a celebration week for both Final Fantasy VII and Dragon's Dogma. Square-Enix and Capcom respectively showed off new games in both of these franchises. Dragon's Dogma 2 is certainly really in development. And not only are known games such as Ever Crisis getting a beta. But also there's a remaster of Crisis Core coming and also the second game in the Remake series, Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth was shown off as well. Sean, Marc, and Daniel discuss their thoughts on all these reveals and also if Square-Enix's heavy reliance on Final Fantasy will pay off or end up backfiring instead. Also, Sean and Daniel played some TMNT: Shredder's Revenge and they loved the game. Is it even going to be Game of the Year contender? Plus, the Gran Turismo movie gets a synopsis, is God of War: Ragnarok actually coming out in November 2022? Marc's despair over the shelving of Tony Hawk 3 & 4 Remaster, and Skull & Bones gets ratings around the globe. Could it actually finally release? There's also discussion on episodes 4 & 5 of Kenobi and where the Star Wars film universe stands as a whole.
