    I Guess at Least the Super Mario Movie is Animated

    I Guess at Least the Super Mario Movie is Animated

    Somehow Chris Pratt is going to play Mario in a new animated feature and we're honestly not sure if that is good or bad (or both?)

    Other Video Game News

    Activision pays out a quick $18 million to settle one of their many lawsuits
    Nintendo Online is getting N64 and Sega Games
    Your PS4 will no longer brick if your battery dies
    Bitcoin and other crypto is now illegal in China

    Bloodshore is an FMV Battle Royale and I hate the entire idea

    What We're Playing

    Cliff: Sable

    Questions
    JoeColeslaw: Anyone want to lend me their steam link pad thing so I can play Gas Station Simulator? Or I can wait until next year for the console port.

    Sometimes, it's best to 'hit the reset button' in life like an overgrown lawn to just spend 2 days and get it back to a manageable level. Or a cluttered house, spend a week and get it deep cleaned so it's easier to maintain. Or, I don't know, MAYBE move across the country and unpack into your new house!

    The same could be true in video games, you get so lost, or just want a fresh start. When have you pressed reset on games you're playing and start from scratch?

    Princess_Megan: Who is your favorite video game designer, whether person or studio and what makes them so?

    DA VINSTER (Vinny) — What franchise would you like to see be adapted into a telltale type of video game and why?

    Alan S (zeroskill): Question: Are you ready for New World?

Amazing

New design is very bad ,

Really not good

Genuinely one of the lamest podcasts I’ve ever listened to, let alone a gaming podcast. You’re better off saving your time by listening to something else.
