John and Maverick are back to talk all the games they’ve been playing this week. John finished up Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna The Golden Country and has been messing with a lot of different mobile games. Maverick spent himself a week in Seattle and had some arcade fun before he buried himself in Elden Ring.

In the news, Bandcamp got picked up by Epic Games, Babylon’s Fall launched  quieter than a mosquito, CD Projekt Red has cut off sales to Russia, and an NVIDIA leak suggests a new switch is coming. also brought in a ton of money for trans rights in Texas with a TTRPG bundle. G/O Media is going on strike and corporate is doing some really scummy things to keep posting content while both Quantic Dream and Activision are having a lot of trouble hiring people for job openings.
