This week, William’s finally picked up Bravely Default, Kaz is prepping for more cons and pushing forward in both Skyrim and Dark Souls 3, and Kyle has finished Hollow Knight and critiques Ruiner. For news, Detroit: Become Human, Dark Souls Remastered, and Runner 3 are all coming out, there’s a somewhat more credible Smash Switch rumor, Battlefield V has been announced, and the PS4 is apparently entering the ‘final stage of its life cycle.’ We also discuss Nintendo selling Switches without docks, the end of Gamer’s Club Unlicked, TotalBiscuit’s passing, and Tencent acquiring more developers. And to finish up, we create the definitive, exhaustive, and in all other ways complete list of trains in video games. Come pause with us!

SMASH BROS RUMOR OF THE WEEK
- Sakurai: (laughs)
- Rumor mill says that Simon Belmont and Ridley are in, along with the Ice Climbers. And supposedly no roster cuts! This is from the guy that said the TMNT would be in Injustice 2, so there’s some potential here. https://www.eventhubs.com/news/2018/may/21/rumor-new-leaks-claim-simon-belmont-ridley-and-ice-climbers-are-coming-super-smash-bros-nintendo-switch/
William – Nintendo is now selling a dockless Switch in Japan.
Pretty interesting that they see a market for that. Think they’ll finally kill the 3DS? https://store.nintendo.co.jp/customize_dockless.html
Kyle – Best Buy cancelled Gamer’s Club Unlocked. RIP.
Kaz – John Bain, Total Biscuit, has passed away today. Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
Very sad day, he was a force in the gaming and critic community, keeping devs and critics honest and frame rates high https://twitter.com/GennaBain/status/999785407087808512?s=19
Kyle – Tencent bought the Path of Exile developer, Grinding Gear Games.
Next purchase? The world.
