Caught Up: Escape from Xenoblade Chronicles X's New Los Angeles

This week on Caught Up we're busting out one of the prettiest games of the year: Xenoblade Chronicles X. Sure, the title may be a mouthful and some of you might not even know what a "Xenoblade" is, but in a year dominated by open-world juggernauts, XCX can hang with the best of 'em. Grab a giant mech and come join Max and Dave as they brave the untamed landscape of New Los Angeles and see how it stacks up to old Los Angeles (surely it's an improvement). All that, plus last week's hottest news stories, right here on Caught Up!
