This week the show takes place on Thanksgiving and despite being tired and full of food, Fred and Trees manage a full episode. Along with various adventures, the recently released Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City are discussed (with no real spoilers). On the gaming front Trees is creating a new civilization in No Man’s Sky, decking out slick designs in Forza Horizon 5, and building rockets on social media with the game pass title Next Space Rebels. Fred is continuing to enjoy Final Fantasy VII Remake, went back to Treyarch’s first developed Call of Duty 3, and enjoying a listener suggested anime High Score Girl. In fact, that’s where this week’s closing song comes from!

This week it’s musicals, Halloween fun, and a dissection of the Marvel Cinematic Universe before moving onto games in this short, but simply packed episode. Trees has continued to explore No Man’s Sky, impulse played Yoko Taro’s newest title Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars and jumped into game pass title Moonglow Bay. Both hosts also spent some time in Forza Horizon 5 and enjoyed this truly fun and gorgeous title. Fred wrapped up Titanfall 2, The Suffering, and for grins got 120% completion in Spyro the Dragon (Re-ignited). He also tried out Marvel’s Avengers with mixed results.
