Another great episode, great to see Sean and Shawn make a reappearance.

The board game I took a picture of was XCOM actually, I should have mentioned that in the email!

I liked the responses to my question and I have to say, every hybrid game I have played relies on the presence of the app to be played in the first place.

Poor Glendon; he tried to pull off an analogy Rich would make and it died mid-sentence.

It was so great to have some of the old cast return for this episode. I especially loved hearing the Game King give his honest thoughts on Elden Ring. I feel like so much of the discourse about the game has either been universal praise or spicy hot takes. No game is perfect, and even a great game can make you feel satisfied and finished without seeing the end credits.

I'm just going to put this into the universe - maybe we can get a monthly or quarterly reunion tour? The current cast is great, but sometimes you just want to put on the classics you grew up with.
