Our Jeremy-less podcast begins with some chatter about certain hosts fashion choices and ends with some spirited talk about video games we’ve been playing. Dale goes old school and plays the older new school XCOM as well as the now very old school Final Fantasy XI, LeGrande and Jerod have been playing For Honor! LeGrande also gives his impressions of Resident Evil 7 VR.

The time has come, the podcast said, to talk of many things! Mostly it’s the games we’ve been playing, like World of Warcraft: Legion! We also played Lumines: Puzzle & Music, Justice Monsters 5, ARMA: Cold War Assault, and a raft of Super Famicom games. Dale has an eBay problem. Send help.
History is happening all around us! This week we chronicle the recent 3DS Nintendo Direct, NPD’s acquisition of EEDAR, some new adventure game additions to Steam and Humble, and Super Mario nightmare fuel.
