This week on Pause Screen: In a shocking twist William admits he’s ready to uninstall Fire Emblem Heroes and sinks some serious time into grinding Fate/Grand Order. Kaz has been bitten by the retro collection bug and has a serious score in her new Gameboy collection. Kyle gives his review of several games he played this week: Moonlighter, Slain: Back from Hell, and Children of Morta. He is also on a Megaman kick again and surprised us all by playing more Archero. In the News we talk about Byleth coming to smash, the xbox Series X and Left 4 Dead 3 VR leaks, Pokemon Go’s success and more. We then hopped on the Sad Train to talk about all the major games that have been delayed so far in 2020.
