Episode 88: The Realness Just Got Realer

And with a quick Phoenix Down (or Mercy – calm down, Blizzard fans), we are back from the grave. The four of us relive old times, spilling the tea on our past lives and The Big 3.

From talking about Twilight Princess (the non-Vaseline edition) to Delvin’s deputation on the state of the video game pricing and unfinished games, we have a little bit of something for everyone.

Have you been curious about what we’ve been doing and playing? Are you sad that we left? Have you been forced to go walk children in nature instead? Well, breathe a sigh of relief and listen in.
