This week Fred and Trees return after a week off and it’s time to get down to business. Discussions begin with an update on Trees’ household, new and old furniture, and Godzilla v. Kong. We have a listener mail on HDR and how it works on both PC monitors and TVs, then it’s on to games. Trees has started Paper Mario: The Origami King, enjoyed classic shmups with the Vasara Collection, and tried to be king of the hill with Pac-Man 99. His big passion has been turning into a teenage girl and scouring the land for resources in Atelier Rorona (which also lends to our closing music). Fred has finally wrapped Days Gone with near 100 percent completion and about 45-50 hours of work, but his true love this week has been VR. Thanks to a lent PS VR from Trees, he’s been flying through a catalog of the top titles of the platform, all of which were obtained from PS+ or freebies from Sony.

This week we get a little personal about life before talking a bit of movies. On the games front Trees is trying to stay positive with post-campaign Bowser’s Fury and checking out Monster Hunter Rise, but also realizing that the true stress reliever for now is Splatoon 2. Fred is still hooked to Days Gone, which is good because he tried (and failed) to get into Just Cause and Aliens: Colonial Marines.
