Just a quick check-in this week. After a DELUGE of great games in the 1st quarter, a whole lot of nothing has happened. Well, except for having some big back-logs to catch up on. Tune in for some light news discussion and a deep dive into Persona 5 - after the credits music there's also a great Thurbleton-addendum for those wanting to hear about Nier.

Persona 5 comes out in a couple of hours! ...What? Oh right, we did a show this weekend and stuff. Tune in for a back-to-basics episode covering recent gaming news and what we've been playing.

Horizon Spoilercast starts at 1h24m. In other news, this week we have some, shall we say, differing viewpoints to share! Well, about Ghost Recon: Wildlands and Zelda anyway. Mass Effect on the other hand? We fall RIGHT in line on that one. Tune in for some fun discussion about the latest booms and busts in the video game world followed by that sweet post post apocalypse goodness!

Gads, there are way too many good games coming out this quarter! Sadly, we just can't play them all - but we HAVE been playing two of them. Zelda and Horizon. Tune in for our extended impressions of both - and all jokes aside, they're both incredible. Plus, in the few minutes of the show not filled with wildlife and robots, we discuss what we think of that new Nintendo Switch thing!

Its shaping up to be perhaps the most dense Q1 ever when it comes to constant, quality releases!

Wow, almost lost this episode due to hard drive issues, but it's here! (and just a little late) Recorded in late January, we talk about the year ahead in gaming - but not before going over what we'd been up to over the holidays. Off topic ends at 1h08m, then tune in for our bets on how all the big games of the year will review, and what will be huge - or a flop!

Music: "The Golden Show", "Lost" by Shoji Meguro & "Narumi Detective Agency" by ペルソナ5
