This week has been pretty boring for both our hosts, but there’s still chat about life, shopping, and entertainment. On the gaming front Trees continues his addiction to Car Mechanic Simulator, which is spreading. He also got back into Darkest Dungeon and tried the Xbox version of Tetris Effect Connected. Fred has been playing It Takes Two with his daughter, went retro with Panzer Dragoon, and burned through most of Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS5. He also played a chunk of Ninja Blade by From Software, but the story is more than it initially seemed.

This week Trees makes another trek to the casino while Fred is dealing with furniture and odd balls at the grocery store. On the gaming front, Trees continues with Mass Effect Legendary Edition and a bunch of Dead Cells (including DLC), but the hot topics are MiiTopia arriving and the joy of Snowrunners. Fred is still enchanted by Spider-Man Remastered (although he had played the original version on PS4), not quite feeling Disco Elysium: Final Cut, and being gutted by the state of PS VR’s port of Vader Immortal (all 3 eps).

This week it’s all about the movies to start things off.  Gaming focuses around the end of Marvel’s Spider-Man (spoiler free) and onto Kingdom Come: Deliverance and Control.  Fred wraps the discussion with his newfound hatred of Bonk’s Adventure and the frustrations of installing a Saturn optical drive emulator.
