GenCon 2019 Shabadoo!
Hey gang! Aaron here. This week's episode is gonna be a bit *rough* - no editing, no intro, JUST CO-OPS UNFILTERED. We've been a bit busy with some projects, but wanted to release this so everyone could hear what we thought of GenCon 2019's biggest games! Enjoy!
Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 3 - The Black Order and our Phase Four MCU Hot Takes
Liz and Aaron put on their spandex attire once again to tackle Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 3 - The Black Order on the Nintendo Switch! Yes! We know! They already tried the first two but this one will be different!
Plus: The Co-Ops discuss the MCU Phase Four announcements quite a bit!
Wingspan, Unbroken, and the Solo Game Experience
Aaron is solo this week, so it only made sense for him to cover solo games. Aaron plays and discusses Wingspan, Unbroken, and many more games with prominent single-player modes! Our friend Jeff Stormer tries to ease Aaron's burden, and Liz makes a very special appearance at the end. This was a fun challenge. Enjoy!
Journeys In Middle-Earth

E3 2019 Shabadoo!
Aaron & Liz embark on a discussion about E3 2019! There's no time to lose so we'll just get into it! Watch Dogs Legion! DOOM Eternal! Cyberpunk 2077! Final Fantasy 7 Remake! Jedi Fallen Order! Nintendo! Bethesda! Microsoft! VIDEO GAMES! HYPE! MADNESS! Keywords for searching!
