  • Just like what The Decline of Video Game series mentioned, this is just the exact same game as before with some re-labeling.

  • @lesomeguy relabeling it may be, but it's done very well here. This game is sounding attractive to me. But I most likely won't get it.

  • wait....but do we need friend codes in order to be able to use the voice chat thing or not?

  • Of course you will need friend codes. My bets are that chatting won't be allowed when NOT playing with friends (just like the chat system in Clubhouse Games is hobbled if you're playing against strangers vs friends). Works fine for me. Strangers annoy me during voice-enabled games online. Friends? That's a different story. Commencin' to smack talkin'.
