Welcome back to Spectator Mode Podcast episode 40. Topics include Pokemon Sword and Shield hands-on, as well as our impressions of Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order. Bugs? Did someone mention bugs cause we’ve seen plenty. Thankfully Keith didn’t get that Xbox One Elite Controller series 2 as there are some major issues with that thing. And we finish up with should technical issues in games result in a lower score.
