Shout-out to the “Best of the Year” lists that spring up around the internet as we get closer to the holiday season. Getting mad over other people’s entertainment preferences is precisely what we need to drown out the guilt that whispers in our ears this time of year. No, I didn’t get in shape, Bad Voice, and it ain’t none of your business.
The Blood God occasionally demands, well, blood, and there’s nothing like an annual “Best RPG” list to get the good times rolling. Caty joins Kat and I as we discuss and debate which 2019 RPGs are most worthy of recognition. Admittedly, not much blood is shed; it’s a laid-back discussion and we all have a good time. Listen here.
Caty, Kat, and I also chatter away about BioWare’s struggles through the year and lament the toxic waste dump that’s Pokemon Sword and Shield discourse. And…it sure was a big year for Nintendo Switch ports, wasn’t it?
