It’s a short one this week as John and Maverick sit down to discuss the happenings in the world of video games. John’s been playing a little bit of Xenoblade Chronicles and Arknights while Maverick has been digging into The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe. In the news, the Mario Movie has been delayed and Twitch seems to be shaking up their partner program in some really bad ways. We also dive into the situation with Yuji Naka deciding to pick a Balan Bout against Square-Enix over what happened with Balan Wonderworld.
