Episode 100: A Very Special Episode


It’s our 100th episode! This time, Kyle’s finished Owlboy, become obsessed with Mario Tennis Aces, and made the ultimate sacrifice: playing battle royales. William’s saving up a discussion on Bravely Default, but has picked up Blazblue Cross Tag Battle and a little bit of Wizard of Legend. Kaz has returned from AKON, having worked through much of Skyrim and despaired at Pokemon Quest. For news and discussions, we run through our favorite bits of E3, featuring Smash Bros Ultimate, samurai games, Cyberpunk 2077, Death Stranding, and more. Moving into discussions we take a brief look at the future, specifically next gen consoles and streaming/pass services for games. Finally, we celebrate our 100th episode with a small retrospective on the podcast itself. Come pause with us!
