This week Trees embarks on a capitalistic block party while Fred does…very little. On the gaming front no one has played Halo Infinite yet, but Trees sank some hours into Car Mechanic Simulator, tried out the surprisingly good Kart Rider: Drift, and jumped into Series X/S exclusive Lawn Mowing Simulator. Fred tried The Forgotten City, briefly jumped into Arkham Origins, but spent most of his time continuing to love Final Fantasy VII Remake.

The real highlight is the new CMS 2021 DLC that includes Jaguars and Pugatis. Fred has been continuing to enjoy Final Fantasy VII Remake and taking his RPG interests to a whole new level with the tabletop game Hero Quest (yes, that one from the early 90s) and the PC indie darling Wildermyth.

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.
