We’re back with one dang busy week to discuss on the latest episode of the GamesBeat Decides podcast.

Over the last couple of days, we broke the news that Battlefield V is coming this year, Mike broke a video card, and the White House announced a meeting with the gaming industry that no one in the gaming industry knew about. On top of that, Jeff has played some new games that he’s getting way into. Mike is playing … oh, god. Really? OK, still World of Warcraft, I guess.

Join us, won’t you?

Here’s everything that we talked about this week:
