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.

Opening Song: Facehammer by Ozzed (find tons of great chiptune for your use and enjoyment at ozzed.net)

Closing Song: Rise of the Thrash Lord from Demon’s Tilt (PC/XB1/PS4)
