We are back from MAGFest with a wrapup of all the fun from the weekend with a handful of guests!

Joining this episode is former co-host Kris Huber, musician and Ball Squadder Grant Henry, dear friend and hater of The Rock Jen Gonzalez, and main main in charge at MAGFest Paul Good! We chat about our weekend at MAGFest and cover everything from the concerts to panels, room parties to hardcore championships, guests, shenanigans, and how Grant got everybody sick. If you couldn’t make it to MAG, this is a nice consolation prize! William Reyes of The OneUps has a few special messages in there as well.

After everybody heads out, Cole Martin jumps in to tackle the past two weeks of news including a ton of Xbox rumors with many grains of salt, as well as tons of news from a Nintendo Direct Mini, Dark Souls and Assassin’s Creed remasters on the way, some big RPGs hitting Steam, and some depressing LawBreakers player counts. Plus a pack of reviews and updates!

Pic-a-Pix Deluxe from Lightwood Games throw color into the Picross formula for a refreshing new take on the genre. Albert & Otto is a 1930’s era puzzle adventure from K Bros Games & Digerati Distribution. Later, we also have updates on Tiny Metal, the modern strategy game from AREA 35 & UNTIES as well as NBA Playgrounds Enhanced Edition from Mad Dog Games & Saber Interactive.

Chris Taylor covers some Switch games as well! 70’s era dodgeball game Stikbold! gets the Deluxe Edition treatment on Swtich from Game Swing. ACA NEOGEO King of the Monsters brings the brawler to Switch from Hasmter Corporation. Energy Cycle turns out the lights and Energy Invasion breaks some bricks, both from Sometimes You. Finally, 10tons brings their unqiue jewel matching puzzler Azkend 2 to the Switch as well!
