Max Level: A Video Game Podcast

Buying Games With Monopoly Money

July 14, 2020

Episode #155 of the Max Level Podcast. On today's show, we're diving (see what I did there?) back into Animal Crossing: New Horizons, before submerging further (man, I'm good) with Beyond Blue. From there, 2K Games has confirmed that PS5 and Xbox Series X versions of NBA 2K21 are going to retail for $69.99. Other studios are expressing interest in increasing the price as well, so the guys have some thoughts on this. Plus, Microsoft and Warner Bros potentially agreeing on a sale, energy drinks, the Seven Day Forecast is full of great content, and Duru on Kickstarter.

Current Giveaway Offer: Leave us a rating and/or review on Apple Podcasts, and let us know in Discord you did so. We're currently giving away a free lunch, a $20 Amazon Giftcard, and a $25 gift certificate to three randomly selected winners at the end of July.
