So this week we have what is arguably the biggest release in gaming, but you’ll have to wait for my game of the week pick to find out why you’re wrong about what it is.

The Bard’s Tale. For realsies.

Happy Palindrome day! I don’t know if today is actually palindrome day, or even if there is an official palindrome day, but there is an official Intellectual Property Day, so I’m going to go ahead and declare that today is Palindrome day. Go listen to Bob by Weird Al Yankovic and prepare to have your mind blown.

Nintendo Switch Online Plan NES Games, Bard's Tale IV, closing the door on Wow and even more Spider-Man. Also, 'Do gaming upgrades matter as much as they once did?', your emails & more!

Overcooked 2, on the other hand, promises to destroy your relationships while being a better game.
