Despite the short description, this is a long show (almost 3 1/2 hours). This week Trees is dealing with movie-like drama while Fred overdoes it. There’s also a side tangent about games media and podcasts as well as listener question about the new Playstation Plus subscriptions. Finally in gaming Trees is wrapping, and enjoying, Mass Effect 3 while Fred played Destroy All Humans! (2021), Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, and his highlight Ghostwire: Tokyo.

This week Trees struggles with illness and coy cheerleaders while Fred attends a Journey concert. On the gaming front it’s all Mass Effect for Trees as he wraps up the second game and goes right into the third. Fred also played Mass Effect 2 but found time to dig into the first third of Tunic, try (and discard) Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories, and deal with a broken Genesis controller port just to play the terrible Incredible Hulk game.

VPG Ep 102: Shepard…

This week starts out with pop culture and lifestyle before moving into one big game. Hope you like Mass Effect 2 because the hosts of this show are hooked. Warning: Mild spoilers from 1:05:00 through most of the rest of the show. In addition Fred has been killing a handful of minutes daily with the early access run-based title that heavily borrows from Castlevania called Vampire Savior.
