Now Playing -
Dylan explores the single player side of everyone's favorite multiplayer brawler, Super Smash Brothers Ultimate. Surprisingly, he finds that it doesn't drag as much as a tacked on single player mode should, and the puzzle elements of each match up present some fun challenge. Ryan takes a break from boring you with Kingdom Hearts shenanigans and instead talks about a book about gaming, Blood, Sweat and Pixels by Jason Schreier from Kotaku. These inside stories from development are always cool to hear, so track down a copy of the book if you want a deep dive into some of your favorite titles.

News -

But more importantly, this announcement delay's Dylan's eventual purchase of a new system...

Competitive Corner - 
Ryan took a little trip to Burbank a few weeks ago to see Overwatch League, and Dylan grills him about the experience. The League recently announced all team will be playing matches in their respective cities for Season 3, with Philadelphia Fusion building a brand new stadium specifically for this.
