The news this week is coming in slow but hot, like a pleasant burning sensation. This week we catalogue the details of the recent Nintendo Direct Mini, some changes to the upcoming speedrunning event schedules, a recommendation from WHO?, and some quick turnaround mods for some pretty good games. We discuss the new releases and some freebies, and we talk about what we’ve done to deal with copius downtime using video games and family time.

It’s the time of the week that we bring the GAMES, and it’s been a pretty good week as far as game time goes. The guys have brought a bounty to offer you in case you’ve got some time on your hands to figure things out. Dale has broken fellowship with Magic for a week to play The Lord of the Rings: The Adventure Card Game. It’s much better than it sounds. Jeremy checked out Ninja Theory’s new character-based arena shooter Bleeding Edge. As prophecy foretold, LeGrande has gone all-in on DOOM Eternal.

This week we’ve got a little something for everyone, from Ori to Flammie and everything in between in this false continuum. LeGrande finishes off Ori and the Will of the Wisps and it may be a contender for his game of the year so far! Dale has been giving up physical cards for digital ones with Magic the Gathering: Arena. Jeremy has been playing the oldie-but-goodie(?) Secret of Mana on the Nintendo Switch “Secret of Mana Collection.” Get your flammie on!
