This week it’s all about the movies to start things off.  Gaming focuses around the end of Marvel’s Spider-Man (spoiler free) and onto Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Control.  Fred wraps the discussion with his newfound hatred of Bonk’s Adventure and the frustrations of installing a Saturn optical drive emulator.

This week was supposed to be tight and focused with little to talk about but in no time the tangents begin.  Fred is mostly to blame, but a slew of discussion is had including Mortal Kombat movies, an old friend (Jam), and more eBay buys.  Then Trees discusses his final days with Spider-Man while Fred talks Gears Tactics before the two wrap up with the Xbox Series X presentation and the expectations of gamers going into the next generation.

This week Fred and Trees are one day later, one day crazier due to a massive power outage on the East Coast. They discuss hanging with the family, work friends, and what has become of Trees’ pre-order of FFVII Remake.  Then it’s all about talking video game pinball, freebies you never knew you had, and playing the same game more than a few times in a loop of questioned sanity.
