I share a house with a seven year old and a ten year old, which means that toilet humor is a regular staple of my comedy diet. Of course, it was a regular staple of my comedy diet before they moved in, so it's totally unfair of me to dump this on them. It would be like blaming my wife for my love of puns. She's not an enabler; she's an audience.
Imagine if Mass Effect were set in Hyrule, and there were no enemies to fight or party members to manage. Can you imagine not buying it? I bet you can't. That's good, because “not buying Yonder: The Cloud Catcher Chronicles” is something that should only exist in your imagination, if at all.

Greg “DoubtingThomas396” Decker Rolling Thunder is my favorite arcade game of all time. I played it in arcades, I played it on one of those weird, bootleg NES cartridges from Tengen. I even played it on the PSP, when it appeared in Namco Museum. Namco Museum is back, and coming to the Switch with Rolling Thunder, Rolling Thunder 2 and Splatterhouse.
